IS mRNA VACCINES THE NEW ERA IN THE MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY? HELPS TO CURE PANCREATIC CANCER
As with the growing world, the technologies are also growing. People are now able to make different types of vaccines for different kinds of diseases. These vaccines are the key to the growth of medical technology. The vaccine made from this technology is very helpful and properly treats the disease.
As there are vaccines that help to boost your immune system or transfer messages to body cells to build a high-quality protein like the mRNA vaccine. Let’s acknowledge more about mRNA.
WHAT ARE mRNA?
mRNA is a route from the DNA to the cells, this mRNA acts as a messenger between the DNA and cell. mRNA carries the instruction from the DNA to the cells to build protein in the body. mRNA is usually made from DNA during transit. Inside the cells, there are protein-making machines which make this mRNA instruction from DNA into its amino acid in a protein chain.
WHAT IS mRNA VACCINE?
In an mRNA vaccine, the mRNA is delivered in a protective fatty coating. These coating use mRNA function to carry the information to cells, to prompt them to make a specific protein. Like in the covid vaccines mRNA vaccines were present which prompted the protein-making machine inside the cell to make protein to fight the coronavirus and when the immune system catches up with these proteins they make new antibodies to fight the coronavirus. You can say that mRNA is a key to defeating covid19. This is how the mRNA vaccines work.

WILL NEW VACCINE mRNA HELP CURE PANCREATIC CANCER?
Recently, scientists have developed a new vaccine through mRNA technologies which have evidence to cure pancreatic cancer which is a great discovery. This vaccine was developed from the BioNTech-Pfizer which was also used to build the covid 19 vaccine.
Research showed that this vaccine trains the immune system of our body to kill pancreatic cancer cells. If this vaccine succeeds to work properly then there will be 3 vaccines which are meant to kill cancer. The 2 vaccines that were approved by the FDA are the HPA vaccine and Hepatitis B vaccine which were meant to kill different types of cancer.
The research regarding the new vaccine that can cure pancreatic cancer was held in a cancer centre name Memorial Sloan Kettering in Manhattan, New York. This research was held on 16 people who were given the dose of this new vaccine using mRNA instructions found in their tumours. After 18 months, half of the patients were cancer-free and only 5% concedes favourably to this treatment. Doctors have also said that this vaccine can be helpful to deal with other cancer-related diseases.
As this is the first test, there are several tests which are about to make. It will take time for the vaccine to get approved by the FDA and then it will be available on the market and will be a cure for pancreatic cancer.
