The breakthrough therapies with immuno-oncology biologics aiming at stimulating the T-lymphocytes targeting the specific tumor after identification of the gene mutation pattern of the tumor using new generation sequencing (NGS), aim at stopping tumor progression in first instance then degenerating the tumor up-to complete dryingoff and disappearance. After the complete degeneration of the tumor achieving a progression-free survival, the corresponding organ can be regenerated using the patient’s own skin- or fat cells, to obtain induced pluripotent stem cells that regenerate the organ, this is in also relevant for visible organs like in case of breast cancer. With the stem cell therapy, deficient organs can be regenerated and human longevity significantly prolonged. Combining degenerative medicine with regenerative medicine is a vision that becomes reality.
