Mexico City, February 3 (However) .- Eva Ramón Gallegos, a scientist at the National School of Biological Sciences (ENCB) of the National Polytechnic (IPN) Institute, successfully eliminated 100 percent of Human Papillomavirus (HPV), focusing on the gutty serpent of 29 women from the Mexican City through photodynamic therapy.
In a statement, the IPN stated that patients were treated with photodynamic therapy, an unconscious technique that can be an effective way of preventing this neoplas, which is the second cause of death among Mexican women.
Eva Ramón Gallegos explained that photodynamic therapy as well as the elimination of HPV (a pathogenic agent that is the main cause of cervical cancer) also eliminates cervical cancer pre-identifier lesions very early, as shown in a pilot study.
The doctor explained that photodynamic therapy meant to make a drug on the cervix known as aminolevilin acid delta, which is transformed into protoporphyrin IX, which is fluorescent chemistry; accumulate in damaged cells, which allows to remove a special Laser Traw, only incorporate the structures that have been incorporated into it.
The researcher, who has over two decades studied the effect of photodynamic therapy on different neoplasms (melanoma, breast cancer and cervical cancer), in the clinical period 420 Oaxaca and Veracruz patients have been treated with & # 39 ; this therapy. In addition to the 29 in Mexico City, those infected with HPV had pre-aligning lesions on the cervix or had both conditions.
Ramón Gallego mentioned that the treatment was carried out in two stages under two different schemes of qualification and therapy.
"In the first part, where Oaxaca and Veracruz women were involved, the results were encouraging. When applying the caption in the capitals, there was also a very hopeful effect, n opening the possibility of making treatment more effectively, by using the scheme that suits the patient situation, "he said.
In the first part of the investigation, the procedure was applied three times with a 48 hour edge each, with radiation time per case and type of injury. Reviews have been made and diagnostic studies have been repeated. The results were as follows: People with the virus with only an injury were able to delete HPV in 85 per cent; In HPV patients with lesions, he had an 85 per cent efficiency, and those who had lesions without HPV succeeded to be 42 percent.
The IPN researcher noted that women in Mexico City have doubled the concentration of aminolevilin acid delta. The procedure was performed twice with a 48 hour edge. They also conducted the reviews and diagnostic studies. The results were as follows: HPV was eliminated in 100 per cent of patients carrying it without injury, 64.3 per cent in women with HPV and lesions, and 57.2 per cent in those with lesions without HPV.
He said photodynamic therapy was safe and free from side effects. "Unlike other treatments, it's only damaged cells that have been damaged and it does not affect healthy structures, so it has great potential to reduce the death rate of cervical cancer , "he said.
