Plasma of Vitiligo Patients May Hold Cancer Cure
Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
A while back I came across an article in a medical journal which detailed research being done to cure melanoma (skin cancer) using plasma of donors with Vitiligo because studies have shown that this “enriched” IgG formulation contains potent anti-melanoma activity (read the original blog).
I spent the morning trolling the internet for more on this subject and I found so much to share with you. There is no way that I can condense all of the different sources and do justice to the vast amount of critical information given, so I’ve decided to provide links. I trust that most have you have done extensive research on vitiligo; therefore, reading through mundane (yet informative) scientific/ medical journals is acceptable. Happy reading!
Melanoma and vitiligo: immunology’s Grecian urn (note: there is are options for font size…you will def want to increase it. Also, take a look a the article headline. Does it seem a bit cryptic to you? It did to me, but after mulling over the meaning, I decided that the author must have taken it from, Keats’ Ode On A Grecian Urn, because at one point he describes the urn as an “historian” that can tell a story. He wonders about the figures on the side of the urn and asks what legend they depict and from where they come. Alright, I admit it. I can over think things just a bit.
That’s it for now
