British scientists may have finally, albeit unwittingly, found a cure.

According to an article at, a cure for cancer may have been found. Accidentally. The scientists have apparently stumbled across a new "T - Cell".

Researchers at Cardiff University were analyzing blood from a bank in Wales, looking for immune cells that could fight bacteria, when they found an entirely new type of T-cell. That new immune cell carries a never-before-seen receptor which acts like a grappling hook, latching on to most human cancers, while ignoring healthy cells.” -

Unlike previous treatments, this new discovery could be used to treat tumors as well as cancerous cells and it works on a molecular level that doesn't vary from human to human. That's important because it means that they can store these things and have them readily available to people when needed!

The research from the studies that accidentally discovered this new cell can be viewed here.
