Scientists find treatment to kill every kind of cancer tumor
 
Quote:

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 New York Post reported.

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.

Actually if you follow all of the links back that piece was from 2012. There has been some movement on it this year though. Stanford, where I did mini-med, is in the process of forming a clinical trial that they hope to begin later this year. Here is the latest info: http://stemcell.stanford.edu/CD47/

Wow. There have been some extraordinary advances in cancer research/treatment in the past few years. I try not to get too excited for a variety of reasons, but this is great news.

For those interested, I've been following the Kanzius RF Therapy research for years. It uses gold nano particles and radio waves. Extremely effective, no chemo or radiation, no side effects. I think there is endless promise in this technique as well.

I don't think it's too far in the future that primary care physicians will be able to detect and treat cancer.

Give it 8 to 12 years. Very promising
