Antibody against malignancy
Researchers are as of now testing a standout amongst the most foreseen advances in restorative science in late decades: the immunization against the most forceful diseases that exist.
While there are as of now a few immunizations that keep the advancement of malignant growth, this new choice has not just demonstrated compelling against melanoma, the forceful skin malady that is among the deadliest in the US, anyway has in like manner had the limit to evade Relapses that influence both those experiencing this illness. Bruce Beutler, Nobel Prize in Medicine, related to the specialist, teacher and scientist at the University of San Diego, Dale Boger, led the exploration that has tossed extremely promising outcomes for the restorative network.
The researchers demonstrated that by including a particle called Diprovocim, the antibody can battle malignancy cells in regions where the tumor is found. What this medication does that they are as of now testing in creatures, is to expand the limit of the invulnerable framework to battle against the most forceful malignant growths, working related to different treatments against the malady. One of the incredible favorable circumstances of this couple is on preliminary, is that it delivers a totally corrective reaction of the life form, to the point that the malignant growth never returns, in light of the fact that the treatment prepares the resistant structure to acknowledge how to fight the condition in the wake of having had as of now a tumor.
As indicated by Beutler and Boger, the consequences of the Diprovocim can be fabulous. Its organization is straightforward, does not require any sort of complex therapeutic innovation, in light of the fact that just two intramuscular infusions are required seven days separated. In mice, it has given a 100 percent shot of survival when given related to other anticancer treatments
The antibody against cervical disease
In 1999, Dr. Nubia Muñoz, Colombian researcher and teacher emeritus of the National Institute of Cancerology, distributed with a gathering of European partners, a standout amongst the most applicable examinations lately in the battle against malignancy, which revealed the nearness of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) in for all intents and purposes all instances of cervical disease. This discovering, added to the explores that Dr. Muñoz herself progressed and in which she showed the relationship between the contamination and the advancement of the malady, prompted the end that the tenacious contamination by this infection is an essential condition for the event of the ailment. cervical malignant growth.
As such, Dr. Muñoz's revelation made it conceivable to build up that on the off chance that contamination were controlled, it would then be conceivable to destroy an illness that has been verifiably annihilating for ladies in creating nations through anticipation. To date, early identification programs dependent on cytology have figured out how to diminish mortality in basically all created nations and in some center pay nations, for example, Colombia; notwithstanding, in the last mentioned, the advancement has not been critical in spite of the extensive measure of assets contributed and the colossal exertion made by the wellbeing frameworks for over twenty years.
The in excess of 5,000 yearly cases that happen every year in our nation have a more noteworthy social effect in the event that we consider that the normal period of beginning of the malady is around forty years, a period of full work generation, yet more critically , time in which the family job of ladies is fundamental for the development of our social texture. The circumstance depicted is substantially more incessant (in spite of the fact that not elite) in gatherings of inadequate financial conditions and low access to wellbeing administrations, comprising a reasonable articulation of imbalance.
The discovery of HPV as a basic cause of cervical cancer brought with it a great research boom, which was oriented in principle and obviously to the development of vaccines that would prevent infection and thus control the disease; but additionally, it allowed an important technological improvement of the early detection techniques, which today pose as a fundamental corollary that it must first identify women who have a genuine danger of creating disease since they have the nearness of the infection, and after that if they do cytology that allows early diagnosis of cellular abnormalities induced by the infection.
The results obtained in these two fields of research bring with it an unprecedented opportunity to advance in the fight against one of the evils that overwhelms Colombian women as already noted, because today there are vaccines that prevent infection 100 percent. persistent by the types of HPV responsible for at least 60 percent of cervical cancer cases in our country, but additionally, there are also tests for early detection of the malady dependent on HPV, which whenever utilized in a way proper in mix with cytology, will detect more than 90 percent of precancerous lesions allowing proper treatment.
Although the combination of these technologies provides an encouraging outlook, its implementation and putting at the service of the community is not without challenges. In the first place, vaccines have been tested with sufficiency for their application in the adolescent population, but their use in children under five has not yet been evaluated. This circumstance implies the adjustment from programs that have traditionally been oriented towards young children who come to the health centers with their parents or caregivers, towards programs that must reach the schools in order to ensure a good participation of the adolescent population.
In this sense, the challenge is not only about coverage but also about the adequate management of a population group susceptible to emotional reactions to the application of injected drugs of any kind, and additionally, susceptible to emotional reactions of a character collective, which are more likely to occur with the application of the mass vaccine in schools.
Associated difficulties include the negative attitude of certain communities due to the fact that it is a vaccine directed to a sexually transmitted infection to be applied in adolescent girls, which brings with it a world of superstitions around the modification of the behaviors of our girls, superstitions that despite not having any scientific basis easily expand and are encouraged by a pseudoscientific language that brings data not known in any serious publication about apparent deficiencies in the safety of this preventive tool.
Despite the challenges expressed and many others not mentioned, the scientific societies, the National Institute of Cancerology, the National Institute of Health and the Colombian state have shown total commitment to the introduction of new technologies in a fact with few antecedents. Going back to the words of Dr. Pelayo Correa, another great Colombian scientist, we must all in unison "be aware that this is a golden opportunity, ... an opportunity that took scientists a long time to avoid the death and misery of thousands of productive citizens and promising young people ", it is now our turn as a society to close ranks around a public health program that will bring enormous benefits, especially to the most hindered, and that will contribute with this to fabricate a better Colombia.
