Rethinking Cancer: Breakthroughs, Mysteries, and the Role of Technology in the War Against the Big C

Scientists have recently discovered a sinister tactic used by cancer cells to bolster their growth: they drain energy from the body's immune cells, simultaneously weakening our defenses and strengthening themselves. This insight is set to disrupt our understanding of cancer and guide new treatment strategies. Additionally, the U.S. FDA has extended its support for the cancer drug pembrolizumab and approved Selpercatinib, a potential treatment for specific lung and thyroid cancers.

Recent studies have also questioned the accuracy of molecular markers in immunotherapies as indicators of therapeutic response, stirring doubts about their reliability. Concurrently, technology is permeating the cancer field, with AI, CAD, and bioengineered organisms introducing novel opportunities and challenges for cancer detection and treatment. Yet, we must also be cautious of potential overdiagnosis in cancer screening to avoid unnecessary treatment. Through every new breakthrough, endorsement, and recognized limitation, we're inching closer towards winning the fight against cancer.
