Using temperature to awaken immune response to fight brain cancer

14 Oct 2019 Cancer

This certainly may apply to many cancers, as unfortunately, most are immunologically “cold,” which is why the current FDA approved immunotherapies fail in the majority of cases. There are numerous techniques to turn “cold” tumors to “hot.” Among these are injection into a tumor TLR agonist, STING agonist, CD40 agonist, and Oncopore peptides, to name a few. This article discusses using ultrasound to control temperature. The surprising aspect was it was not necessarily heating things up, like hyperthermia, but keeping the temperature stable. A very interesting and unexpected conclusion.

There is also a nice animation explaining the immune response to cancer and how cancer can evade the immune system.

Antibiotic use before cancer treatment cuts survival time study

We have discussed this before. It is becoming standard in our patients to not only evaluate the microbiome with Microbiome Dx, but also patients with recent antibiotic use prior to immunotherapy probably will need a fecal microbiota transplant (FMT).

Taking antibiotics in the month before starting immunotherapy dramatically reduces a cancer patient’s chances of survival, according to a small but groundbreaking study.

Scientists at Imperial College London believe antibiotics strip out helpful bacteria from the gut, which weakens the immune system. This appears to make it less likely that immunotherapy drugs will boost the body’s cancer-fighting capability.
