Cancer treatment research got one step closer to achieving a complete cure on Wednesday, July 12, as a United States Food and Drug Administration panel unanimously endorses a gene-altering treatment against cancer for approval. She was the first child to participate in a clinical trial of the new treatment for B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, six years ago, at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Novartis presented evidence that of 63 patients who received the treatment from April 2015 to August 2015, 52 - 82.5 percent went into remission or potentially were cured - a very high rate for a deadly cancer.

The city said buses were positioned in 12 areas of the city for people who did not have their own vehicle available. An emergency centre for evacuees has opened up at Kelowna's Salvation Army church.

With this show of overwhelming approval from the agency's Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee, the new treatment could be on its way to an FDA approval by the end of September. The procedure designed by Novartis extracts T cells from the blood of a patient.

The therapy could be the first of a wave of cancer treatments custom-made to target a patient's cancer.

Novartis estimates that the procedure, from extraction to reinfusion, would take 22 days. Called CAR-T, it involves removing immune cells from a patients' blood, reprogramming them to create an army of cells to recognize and destroy cancer and injecting them back into the patient.
