T-waves can boost immunity and boost your immune system, researchers say.
But a new study shows that a drug that was developed by a company called Merck & Co. may not help you with your cancer.
The study was published in the journal Cancer Research.
“It was quite surprising that there’s a link between this gene and this kind of cancer, given that it’s such a promising therapy,” said Dr. Joseph Mennella, professor of medicine and director of the Mayo Clinic’s Cancer Center.
He is the lead author on the study.
The Merck team made the discovery in a small study of people with non-small cell lung cancer.
Researchers have been trying to develop drugs to treat this type of cancer for more than a decade.
They’re working on several.
But for years, they haven’t been able to find a drug with an effect that would be clinically meaningful.
And Merck’s team knew the gene had an impact.
They tested it in mice.
But, Mennelli said, they couldn’t find an effect in people.
In their study, Mizzi et al. tested the drug in a mouse model of melanoma.
The mice were then injected with the gene and then given a cocktail of chemotherapy drugs.
Mizzi and his colleagues also tested the gene in a human patient with lung cancer who had never been treated with a chemotherapeutic drug.
The results were mixed.
They found a few positive effects, but many of the people who got the drug had a higher cancer burden than did people who weren’t given the drug.
They also found that the gene is likely to help with the spread of the disease.
“We know that this gene has an important role in cancer cells, but it may be more important for the spread, because cancer cells have the ability to get into other parts of the body, including the immune system,” Mizziello said.
They found the gene was found to be linked to a higher incidence of cancer in people who had received chemotherapy.
“This may be because the cells were already spreading to other parts and therefore more likely to be able to make this protein that is important for this type a therapeutic benefit,” Mennello said.
He said there is no reason to believe the gene’s effect on cancer spread would be the same in people without cancer.
“The fact that there was a positive association with the risk of developing melanoma in people with the mutation suggests it’s something that is related to the metastatic spread,” he said.
The researchers also found a significant decrease in cancer incidence in people taking the gene drug.
But there was no significant increase in the cancer incidence of people who didn’t get the drug or were given other chemotherapies.
“I think it’s really important that people understand the relationship between the gene we’re talking about and melanoma,” Mitzi said.
If you or anyone you know is thinking about getting a cancer treatment, talk to your doctor.
Talk to your doctors about what other chemopreventive therapies they may be taking.
They may need to change the way they treat patients.
