Former president Jimmy Carter announced that after undergoing a relatively new cancer treatment called immunotherapy his brain no longer shows any cancer. Carter, 91, first announced he'd been diagnosed with cancer in August of 2015 -- he had melanoma which had spread to his brain. But in announcing he was free of cancer in a talk at his Sunday school class in a Plains, Georgia Baptist church, Carter said he'd had "an MRI for two hours and ten minutes and then doctors determined I didn't need anymore treatment."
“It’s a treatment called immuno-therapy and it removed the obstacles to my own immune system to fight against cancer, basically – it’s kind of complicated,” Carter said. Carter's treatment included targeted radiation and the immunotherapy drug Keytruda (pembrolizumab), which was only recently approved for use. Keytruda is made by Merck.The BEST SALES on Amazon NOW ]
