What’s a Narcissist’s Punishment?

How Abusers Get Away with Their Behavior People with strong narcissistic, psychopathic, or sociopathic tendencies, abusers, manipulators, and otherwise harmful people tend to hurt others.

And in certain social environments they, horrifyingly, are rewarded for their narcissisticRead More

The Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday approved the second in a radically new class of treatments that genetically reboot a patient’s own immune cells to kill cancer. The new therapy, Yescarta, made by Kite Pharma, was approved for adults with aggressive forms of a blood cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, who have undergone two regimens of chemotherapy that failed.

It is part of the rapidly growing field ofRead More


F.D.A. Approves Second Gene-Altering Treatment for Cancer

He said the F.D.A. had “embraced” the concept of cell therapy, designating it a breakthrough and accelerating the approval process to speed its availability to cancer patients, many of whom do not have time to wait.

Before it was approved and named Yescarta, Kite’s treatment was known by other names: axi-cel, axicabtagene ciloleucel, or KTE-C19.Read More


Immune cell therapy results are ‘landmark moment’ in lymphoma treatment

Four in 10 patients with aggressive lymphoma were cancer-free 15 months after treatment with engineered immune cells, according to new US clinical trial results. The study involved 108 patients with large B cell lymphoma who didn’t respond to standard treatment. Around 6 in 10 patients were alive 15 months after the CAR T cell treatment, known as axi-cel (Yescarta). “The long term follow-up results of the ZUMA-1 trial show that axi-cel remissions can last years, and these are patients that did not respond to chemotherapy,” said Dr Locke, one ofRead More
