Cancer patient who was given just 18 months to live now has NO TRACE of the disease

A cancer patient given just 18 months to live now has NO TRACE of the disease  after testing a new wonder drug.

Terminally ill Bob Berry was one of the first in the world to take part in the trial after being diagnosed with lung cancer three years ago.

The 60-year-old is just one of just 12 across the world to try the brand new drug, which cannot yet be named.

It has left him with no apparent trace of tumour in his body.

Bob, from Stockport, had tried surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy – all of which were unsuccessful.

Medics told him he had around a year-and-a-half left to live.

But Bob took part in the clinical trial using the drug which combines the drug with an immunotherapy treatment.

His consultant at The Christie, one of the largest cancer treatment centres in Europe, Dr Matthew Krebs, said: “Bob has had a phenomenal response to taking part in this clinical trial.”

Mr Berry said: “Three years ago, I was given 12 – 18 months to live but I have already surpassed that and I feel well.

“At the end of the day, this clinical trial at The Christie has extended my life and I couldn’t be more grateful.”
