Israeli Scientists Claim to Have Found Complete Cure for Cancer
According to a report published in the Jerusalem Post, Dan Aridor, Chairman of the Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi) has claimed his team believes they will be able to offer a complete cure for cancer in a years time. Aridor has been quoted as saying,
“Our cancer cure will be effective from day one, will last a duration of a few weeks and will have no or minimal side-effects at a much lower cost than most other treatments on the market,” Aridor said. “Our solution will be both generic and personal.”Dan Aridor, Chairman AEBi
The news brings a ray of hope for millions of cancer patients all over the world who are fighting hard against the disease. Dr. Ilan Morad, CEO of the company, called the treatment ‘MuTaTo‘ which expands to Multi-Target-Toxin. The treatment is based on the highest order disruption SoAP technology and is expected to be effective, affordable, and fast acting.
The company, founded in 2000, is a development stage bio-pharmaceutical involved in the research and development of therapeutic peptides. The SoAP technology being used by the team of Israeli scientists belongs to the phage display group, for which another team of scientists won a Nobel prize last year. The Nobel prize-winning team had worked for the evolution of new proteins, particularly antibody therapeutics.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the Israeli team working on the anti-cancer drug to aide in providing complete cure for cancer would “introduce DNA coding for a protein, such as an antibody, into a bacteriophage – a virus that infects bacteria. The protein is then displayed on the surface of the phage. Researchers can use these protein-displaying phages to screen for interactions with other proteins, DNA sequences, and small molecules.”
Though we sincerely hope that the news eventually turns out to be true, several experts have shared their concerns over the possibility of it. Dr. Lichtenfeld, Deputy Chief Medical Officer at the American Cancer Society, shared his concerns in his blog post. He went on to say,
“this is far from proven as an effective treatment for people with cancer, let alone a cure”
