CancerSOS: Exciting Immunolight Research

New discoveries in light-based cancer treatment may offer safe, effective protocols in the near future for breast cancer and other cancer types. Guest: Harold Walder, President of Immunolight. Walder and a team of scientists at Duke University Medical Center have proven that a compound called psorlen – which occurs naturally in broccoli and figs – was shown to shrink breast cancer tumors in mice when activated by ultraviolet (UV) light. With the success of these studies, Immunolight hopes to start human trials later this year. "Our highest priority is to translate this amazing science into an actual cancer treatment in patients," Walder said. "I think we are quite close."
