UPenn and cancer Over the years on DT, I've covered some great stories about research coming out of Penn, but this one takes the cake.

Penn researchers led by gene therapy expert  Dr. Carl June, found a new way for treating leukemia by "turning the patients' own blood cells into assassins that hunt and destroy their cancer cells."

More about this exciting research after the jump!

 


While researchers have only tried it in a handful of patients, "two appear cancer-free up to a year after treatment, and the third patient is improved but still has some cancer."

Plus, while it's a bit of a waiting game as researchers closely monitoring how long these remissions will last, this surely is encouraging!

Next up for Penn researchers is to test in additional cancers including pancreatic and ovarian cancer.

    Do you know that there is a great spell caster who can cure any deadly
    disease. Like Cancer, Hiv, syphilis, e.t.c. Well my main reason why i
    am writing this right now is to inform the whole world about the great
    deeds, Dr. okorom did for me. I was diagnosed of this deadly disease
    in the year 2000 ever since then i was taking my medications, until i
    met the great spell caster, though i never believed in spell. I saw
    many testimonies on how a great spell caster cured thier deadly
    diseases. I contacted him through his phone number. I called him, he
    asked me to send him my email, which i did. He gave me a form to fill,
    I filled it and send it back to him. He told me that his god's
    required some items in which he will use in casting a curing spell on
    me. I don't know where to find the items he required. He told me that
    the only alternative is for of to send him the money, then he can help
    me to purchase the items from the items sellers. I promised myself to
    do anything to get cured. I sent him the money. He bought the items
    and casted a curing spell on me. Two day later he asked me to go for
    check-up, when i did the check-up i was tested HIV Negative. If you
    passing through hardship and you need a way out, kindly contact him
    via his email on dr.okoromspellhome@live.com or call his number on

    I Am Mrs Maren bond i live in Texas (USA). [READ MY STORY. ON HOW I GOT MY AIDS CURED]. Truthfully, i was tested HIV + positive last 3years. I keep on managing the drugs i usually purchase from the health care agency to keep me healthy and strengthen, i tried all i can too make this disease leave me alone, but unfortunately, it keep on eating up my life, this is what i caused myself, for allowing my fiance make sex to me unsecured without protection, although i never knew he is HIV positive. So last few 4days i came in contact with a lively article on the internet on how this Powerful Herb Healer get her well and healed. So as a patient i knew this will took my life 1 day, and i need to live with other friends and relatives too. So i copied out the ID of the traditional healer's email id: hivspelltemple@gmail.com and i mailed him immediately, in a little while he mail me back that i was welcome to his temple home whereby all what i seek for are granted. I was please at that time. And i continue with him, he took some few details from me and told me that he shall get back to me as soon as he is through with my work. I was very happy as heard that from him. So Yesterday, as i was just coming from my friends house, Dr charles called me to go for checkup in the hospital and see his marvelous work that it is now HIV negative, i was very glad to hear that from him, so i quickly rush down to the nearest hospital to found out, only to hear from my hospital doctor called Browning Lewis that i am now HIV NEGATIVE. I jump up at him with the test note, he ask me how does it happen and i recide to him all i went through with Dr charles . I am now glad, so i am a gentle type of person that need to share this testimonies to everyone who seek for healing, because once you get calm and quiet, so the disease get to finish your life off. So i will advice you contact him today for your healing at the above details: Email ID: hivspelltemple@gmail.com
