It is estimated that every sixth death in the worldcomes from cancer - it is the second most deadly disease after cardiovascular diseases. Scientists from all over the world are trying to come up with an effective medicine: someone has already created a spray gel, and someone else has already received approval. Recently, a very loud statement was made by Israeli scientists - they assured that they had developed a cure for cancer, which kills malignant cells without any side effects.
A statement was made founded in 2000Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies (AEBi). The medicine created by her was called MuTaTo, which literally can be translated as a “multipurpose toxin”. The principle of its action lies in the fact that cancer cells will be killed by tiny peptides, enveloping each cell from all sides.
Our cancer treatment will show efficacy withThe first day will have no side effects at a much lower cost than most other drugs on the market, ”said Dan Aridor, chairman of the board of directors of AEBi.
Until now, the best "killers" of cancer were consideredantibodies, which are also ideal means for drug delivery. However, they have a big minus - they are too large to penetrate into hard-to-reach places and roads in the manufacture and regulation. The best alternative antibodies turned out to be peptides - these amino acids bound in the chain are much cheaper without causing side effects.
The drug makers stressed that otherspreparations are directed to fast-growing cells and act only on a certain point. In contrast, MuTaTo affects even slow-growing stem cancer cells that can resume the disease even after complete seemingly healing.
If the drug does not completely destroy the cancer, the remaining cells can resume mutations and return the disease, which is drug resistant the second time, ”explained Ilan Morad, head of AEBi.
MuTaTo medicine will be able to adapt toeach patient. To do this, they will need to send part of the biopsy for examination. Analyzes will show which substances need to be used in each case.
The company conducted successful drug trials onmice, but recognizes that testing on humans can take several years. Her statement has already been criticized by experts: most of them doubt that the medicine is effective against all types of disease. They also note that tests on mice and humans are different things, and in the human body the medicine can show completely different results.
