This money has funded innovations in cancer treatment such as the introduction of the country's first bone marrow transplants, the development of a new class of cancer fighting drugs called immunotoxins, and one of the nation's first genetic testing programs for members of families with high susceptibility to cancer.
This makes it much easier for antibody-based drugs, known as immunotoxins, to attack the cancerous cells.
Alternatively, and quite obviously, this finding could just as easily suggest that those who worked on or close to 9-11 were exposed to the toxic cloud of volatilized gases, containing such known neuro - and immunotoxins as PCBs, mercury and lead, in a gaseous form that could easily enter the body in a myriad of ways.
They are also suspected endocrine disruptors, hormone disruptors, neurotoxins, immunotoxins and cancer causers.
Therapy with targeted radiation rather than antibody-targeted toxins (immunotoxins) has the advantage that adjacent tumor cells, which lack the appropriate antigenic determinants, can be destroyed by radiation cross-fire.
