A cancer patient, Bob Berry who was given 18months to live following cancer diagnosis can now live longer after doctors found out he was free of any tumor after he took a wonder trial drug.
Bob who is one of only 12 people in the world to have taken the drug, was diagnosed of lung cancer in 2014.
Bob whose recovery from cancer has been described as phenomenal by doctors participated in a trial clinical drugs trial at Christie NHS Foundation trust in Manchester, a drug so new it can’t be named
Bob’s consultant at The Christie, Dr Matthew Krebs, has this to say to Manchester Evening News : ‘Bob has had a phenomenal response to taking part in this clinical trial. ‘His most recent scans show that he’s had a complete response with no apparent trace of tumour in his body. ‘We will need to monitor Bob closely with regular scans to assess how durable this response will be.’
Bob on his part said: At the end of the day, this clinical trial at The Christie has extended my life and I couldn’t be more grateful. Anyone who is offered a clinical trial should seriously consider it.’
