Three weeks ago, Nextbigfuture covered the cancer treatment breakthrough made by researchers at the University of Cardiff.
Now SciShow has a video that explains how this discovery was made and why it is so promising.
The researchers took a range of killer t-cells from the body and tested them against cancer. One of the killer t-cells was very effective and killed all of cancer cells and not just the ones with bacteria inside them. They tested it against other types of cancer and it was effective against all of the different cancers.
This was done in mice.
They hope to have human clinical trials in a few years and they are trying to understand the exact mechanism being used to identify cancer cells while differentiating from healthy cells.
