Cancer patient saved by 'seek and destroy' cells
By Barney Calman for The Mail on Sunday

Cancer patient saved by 'seek and destroy' cells stuns doctors will recovery after being given just weeks to live

The first NHS cancer patient to benefit from a breakthrough procedure that primes the body’s immune system to ‘seek and destroy’ tumour cells has stunned doctors with his recovery after being given just weeks to live.

Paul Field, 55, was diagnosed with melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, in December 2013 and had had numerous surgical and drug treatments – all of which failed to halt the spread of the disease.

The married father-of-two from Flitwick, Bedfordshire, believed he had ‘run out of options’ when he was offered tumour-infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) therapy last month.

The first NHS cancer patient to benefit from a breakthrough procedure that primes the body’s immune system to ‘seek and destroy’ tumour cells has stunned doctors with his recovery after being given just weeks to live

Studies have shown the treatment is effective in at least half of patients who have not responded to any other approaches, including surgery, standard chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and other newer immunotherapy drugs.

And a third of these patients, who faced a particularly bleak prognosis, are alive and well – simply requiring monitoring – a year after being treated.

‘Many of these patients will be cured,’ said specialist Dr Hendrik-Tobias Arkenau, of the Sarah Cannon Cancer Centre in London, where British TIL therapy trials are being spearheaded. ‘You can see it working. The tumours on the skin visibly fall apart and shrink. It feels as if we have cracked the code with this disease – and there may be further success with other hard-to-treat tumours, including cervical cancer.’

Of Mr Field, who was given the treatment as part of a new trial, Dr Arkenau added: ‘We have watched his cancer reducing in size day by day.’

TIL therapy is a type of immunotherapy, which involves harnessing a patient’s own immune system to fight cancer.

It is one of a number of treatments known collectively as adoptive cell transfer, or ACT, which all entail removing some of a patient’s own immune-system cells, multiplying or modifying them in the lab, and then infusing them back into the patient.

Paul Field, 55, was diagnosed with melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, in December 2013 and had had numerous surgical and drug treatments – all of which failed to halt the spread of the disease

TIL therapy involves growing immune cells known as T-lymphocytes taken from a surgically removed tumour. Physicians modify the cells in a laboratory, increasing their potency against the cancer by picking out the most active cells and multiplying them.

The patient receives a form of chemotherapy and other drugs, which give the T-lymphocytes a better chance to grow and reproduce before the lab-grown cells are reintroduced through a drip infusion. Patients remain in hospital for two weeks in total.

The new T-lymphocytes travel throughout the body, where they attack tumour cells wherever they appear. Dr Arkenau said: ‘We are also exploring whether the TIL cells can be frozen so if the cancer returns, we can use them again to “top up” the patient’s own reserves.’

TIL therapy is still considered experimental but there are about 24 studies looking at it as a treatment for skin and other cancers, with promising results.

The UK trials led by Dr Arkenau are being carried out in conjunction with HCA Healthcare UK at University College Hospital London, and other hospitals across the country are expected to sign up in the near future.

About 13,500 new cases of melanoma skin cancer are diagnosed each year. More than a quarter of cases are in people in their 50s, and over the past decade the number of people diagnosed with melanoma in the UK has increased by almost half.

Over-exposure to ultraviolet radiation is the main trigger for the disease, and those with fair skin and eye colour, a large number of moles or freckles and a family history of melanoma are all at higher risk.

Just a decade ago the majority of patients were expected to survive no more than a year after diagnosis. However, in recent years new drug treatments, including immunotherapy drugs ipilimumab and nivolumab, have transformed outcomes.

TIL therapy may be the first real option for cases that fail to respond to these medications.

Mr Field was diagnosed with melanoma five years ago. He says: ‘I’d noticed a suspicious mole on my right shoulder blade a year earlier but my GP told me it was nothing to worry about.

‘Then, on a family holiday, my wife Helen took a look at it and said I really needed to go back. It was black and crusty, and bigger – almost 2in wide.

‘I went to a skin cancer clinic and within two weeks I’d had surgery to remove it – I was left with a 10in scar on my back.’

But the cancer had already spread. Over the following years, Mr Field had numerous operations to remove tumours that reappeared, and was offered ipilimumab and nivolumab, which failed to halt the disease.

‘When my doctor told me about TIL therapy, I jumped at the chance,’ he says. ‘I was just so pleased there was something else to try. I’m feeling better every day and the skin cancers are disappearing. My chances were not great before this, but the way I feel now I reckon I’ll be around for a while yet!’

Dr MICHAEL MOSLEY's 5:2 diet recipes
By Dr Michael Mosley For The Mail On Sunday

Ten steps to a younger brain and sharper memory: Keep your mind in shape with Dr MICHAEL MOSLEY's new 5:2 diet recipes

The human brain, about 3 lb of pinkish-greyish gunk with the consistency of tapioca, is the most complex object in the known universe. It allows us to do wonderful things such as build cities, write novels, fall in love.

The fact that our brains are so extraordinary makes it even more tragic when they go wrong. I’ve noticed as I get older that my memory has become more fallible and I occasionally struggle to remember names and dates. What I really fear, however, is that one day I will develop dementia. The scary thing is that might well happen.

Dementia is now the biggest killer of British women, and second biggest killer (after heart attacks) of men. The process begins when you are in your 50s and once you show signs of mental decay there is not a lot that can be done. So keeping our brains as young as possible, for as long as possible, should be a priority.

Today’s installment is a ten-point plan of well-proven ways to ensure you keep a youthful mind – and perhaps even stave off dementia

Last week, in the first part of my new Life Plan: Live Longer, Look Younger, I revealed the lifestyle changes you need to make in order to age-proof your heart. Today’s second installment is a ten-point plan of well-proven ways to ensure you keep a youthful mind – and perhaps even stave off dementia…

1) CHECK HOW WELL YOUR BRAIN IS AGEING

There are a number questionnaires online that claim to determine ‘brain age’ and dementia risk but I haven’t found any that are backed by proper science. Instead, below is my own test, with each question relating to a specific known risk factor for cognitive decline and dementia. Answer either yes or no to the following statements:

    ■ I eat a mainly Mediterranean- style diet. This is one that is low in sugar and processed foods, but rich in fruits, vegetables, wholegrains, legumes, nuts, oily fish – such as salmon or mackerel – and olive oil.

    ■ I’ve been tested and I don’t have type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes.

    ■ I don’t smoke.

    ■ I drink 14 units of alcohol or less a week.

    ■ I exercise most days.

    ■ I do something sociable, with friends or family, at least once a week.

    ■ None of my immediate relatives developed signs of significant memory loss or dementia before the age of 80.

    ■ I’ve had my blood pressure tested and it is normal.

    ■ I don’t have any obvious sleep disorders, such as snoring or sleep apnoea, and I get at least seven hours’ sleep every night.

    ■ I don’t have a significant problem with stress or depression.

Now add up how the number of yes answers you gave…

0-3: You probably have a brain age that is about ten years more than your actual age. You are at increased risk of early memory loss and developing some form of dementia. You need to work on the sort of lifestyle changes I am about to recommend as soon as possible.

4-7: Not bad, but not great. There is still some way to go – and you will benefit from following my advice.

8-10: You are doing well, but do keep reading. This article contains further tips on ways to keep your brain young.

2) LOOK AT YOUR BLOOD SUGAR

Your brain needs energy, but having persistently high blood sugar levels is bad for it. If you are over 40 and you have not had your blood- sugar levels tested then you probably should. Being a type 2 diabetic adds about ten years to your brain age and doubles your risk of developing dementia. If you have pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes then the good news is that it is possible to get your blood sugar levels down to normal by following a version of my New 5:2 diet – and I will be focusing on this in more detail next week. Visit thebloodsugardiet.com for more information.

3) GET SOME SHUT-EYE

Sleep is one of the main pillars of healthy living. And too little quality sleep is a real brain-ager. Scientists have recently discovered that during deep sleep channels open in the brain which flush the toxins out. My first Life Plan, Beat Insomnia In Just 4 Weeks, is devoted to getting better sleep – read it at mailonsundayplus.co.uk/dr-michael-mosley.

4) TAKE A DOSE OF EXERCISE

Exercising is an excellent way of boosting your brain. A recent study found that regular walkers have brains that, on average, look two years younger than the brains of those who are sedentary. Last week in part one of this Life Plan I gave more detailed advice on exercise. Read that at mailonsundayplus.co.uk/dr-michael-mosley.

5) QUIT SMOKING... AND DRINK LESS

SMOKING compromises the circulation and is terrible for the brain. Heavy drinking causes its own form of brain damage but drinking inside the guidelines of 14 units a week seems to be fine.

6) SORT OUT YOUR DIET

One of the best ways to keep your brain in good shape is to change what you eat – and how you eat.

Numerous studies have shown that the Mediterranean diet is also the ultimate brain diet – the version I advocate is low in starchy, easily digestible carbs, but packed full of disease-fighting vitamins and flavonoids found in olive oil, fish –especially oily varieties – nuts, fruit and vegetables.

It also contains lots of lovely things that down the years we have been told not to eat, such as full-fat yogurt and eggs. If you have a bit of weight to lose, over these pages are more recipes from my New 5:2 diet.

As regular readers will know, this involves eating a normal, balanced Mediterranean diet for five days of the week and, for two Fast Days of the week, consuming no more than 800 calories. You can do these back-to-back or split them up.

All the New 5:2 recipes can be made as low-calorie versions ideal for Fast Days and higher-calorie versions.

It’s a scientifically proven weight-loss method known as intermittent fasting (IF). As well as helping you lose gut fat, following the New 5:2 may help preserve your brain cells in other ways.

Dr Mark Mattson, a professor of neuroscience at the National Institute on Ageing and a world expert on the ageing brain, has conducted numerous animal studies.

They show that short periods of fasting lead to increased production in the brain of a protein that not only helps preserve existing brain cells but encourages the growth of new ones, particularly in areas of the brain linked with memory.

7) TEST YOUR HEARING

We are social creatures and having lots of regular social interactions is incredibly good for our brains. That is why going deaf, which often leads to social isolation, is a major risk factor for developing dementia. If you have dodgy hearing, get yourself tested.

8) TAKE UP A HOBBY

This is one everyone can really enjoy: try to learn a new skill. I love doing puzzles but your brain will get much more benefit from taking up something such as dancing. Learning to salsa is not only intellectually challenging but demands dexterity and interaction with fellow human beings. Plus it’s an enjoyable way of getting fitter. Or join a reading group, a drawing class or a choir. Anything fun, sociable and a bit mentally demanding.

9) FEED YOUR GUT BACTERIA

There is mounting evidence that the microbiome, the 2 lb to 3 lb of microbes that live in our guts, have a profound effect on our mental health. A recent study found that people with Alzheimer’s have much higher levels of bad bacteria that cause inflammation, a process that can lead to dementia, and lower levels of the ‘good guys’, the bacteria that reduce inflammation. Find out about how to keep your microbiome health at cleverguts.com.

10) AVOID AIR POLLUTION

A team from Edinburgh University’s Alzheimer Scotland Dementia Research Centre recently reviewed dozens of studies that looked at potential environmental triggers and came to the tentative conclusion that air pollution might be one of them.

Studies have demonstrated that micro-particles produced by burning fuel can get into our brains.

We also know that when mice are exposed to polluted air collected from busy roads, their brains show some of the changes that are known to lead to Alzheimer’s disease. It’s not yet clear if this happens in humans.

The 5.2 diet is an old practice among Orthodox Church, where people (at least monks) have to fast on Wednesday and Friday : no food, no drink (water, teas are tolerated but sugarless).

Beside, there are many Lents and fasting weeks on Eastern Churches. The next one starts on August 1st to 15th. No meat, no dairy, no fish, no oil. Seashell, vegetables, and vegetable fats like peanut butter or coco milk are allowed.

Exception : August 6th, people can eat fish, oil and drink alcohol :ymdevil:

I will follow Orthodox Fasting, because French food is terrible for waistline. :sad:

If you practice the 5:2 fast, or the 16/8, you could eat what you love during your feed-time.

Today is a 24 h. I don't eat before 7 pm, but I'll have a kebab and French fries at dinner :ymparty:
