Researchers find treatment that kills every kind of cancer tumor

Researchers might have found the Holy Grail in the war against cancer, a miracle drug that has killed every kind of cancer tumor it has come in contact with.

The drug works by blocking a protein called CD47 that is essentially a "do not eat" signal to the body's immune system, according to Science Magazine.

This protein is produced in healthy blood cells but researchers at Stanford University found that cancer cells produced an inordinate amount of the protein thus tricking the immune system into not destroying the harmful cells.

With this observation in mind, the researchers built an antibody that blocked cancer's CD47 so that the body's immune system attacked the dangerous cells.

So far, researchers have used the antibody in mice with human breast, ovary, colon, bladder, brain, liver and prostate tumors transplanted into them. In each of the cases the antibody forced the mice's immune system to kill the cancer cells.

"We showed that even after the tumor has taken hold, the antibody can either cure the tumor or slow its growth and prevent metastasis," said biologist Irving Weissman of the Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, California.

One side effect of the treatment was that healthy cells were subjected to short-term attacks by the mice's immune system, but the effect was nothing in comparison to the damage done to the cancer cells.

Weissman's group recently received a $20 million dollar grant to move their research from mouse to human safety testing.


not sure why this isn't getting more attention, it looks to be completely legit

Because the health services industry makes a shitload of money off of cancer patients.

I wouldn't mind if this research led to something but it will not. Heard all this bullshit for years

I don't buy into the conspiracy stuff with this...it has already been made public and been thrown $20 million in grant money at.

Plus really they could charge whatever they wanted if it is in fact a cure.

I am thinking this isn't a bigger story because it has only worked in mice thus far and people are skeptical...but to me it sounds very promising

20 mil is like a penny to every pharmaceutical company/hospital/doctor out there making money off bandaid solutions that can keep being reapplied til you die.

It doesn't signify any sort of real commitment.

And of course I'm all for the cure. Hope it happens.
