Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, supports recent research showing the same cell exhaustion that aggravates immune cells during viral infections also has an impact on cancer cells.

A study out of the Mayo Clinic revealed that treating cancerous tumors with interleukin-12 led the intercellular fighters to exhaustion curbing the body’s ability to attack cancer cells. The study also showed that the same cell exhaustion that aggravates immune cells during viral infections also has an impact on cancer cells during long fights with the disease.

The Mayo study focused on non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Biopsies were taken from the patients and although the immune cells are genetically designed to destroy cancer cells, they co-existed with them instead. The findings left the researchers wondering if the problem known as T cell exhaustion is largely to blame. T cell exhaustion occurs a lot following chronic infections and during tumor growth. Countless studies have shown that T cell exhaustion prevents the control of tumors.

There have been some previous studies that have questioned the effect of exhaustion on cancer treatments. For example, interleukin-12 induced exhaustion has been associated with an increased risk of gastric cancer in H pylori infected patients. H pylori is chronic inflammation of the lining of the stomach and can lead to painful ulcers.

Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health, Dr. Victor Marchione says, “The Mayo study opens up an important subject for further investigation. What other treatments aside from Interleukin-12 could be triggering cell exhaustion?...How can the exhaustion be reversed? The scientific community is determined to answer these and many other questions about the devastating disease through vigorous study.”
