Stanford Scientists Discover Treatment That Kills Every Kind Of Cancer Tested

Scientists may have discovered a miracle drug. They have discovered a treatment that has killed every kind of cancer that it has been tested on. 

Basically, the drug works by blocking a protein called CD47. This is a protein that sends a kind of “do not eat” signal to the immune system. Cancer cells tend to produce a whole lot of this type of protein, thus telling your immune system not to kill the harmful cells.

By blocking this protein, though, your body is fooled no more, and destroys the cancer cells.

So far, researchers at Stanford University have used the antibody in mice with human breast, ovary, colon, bladder, brain, liver and prostate tumors transplanted into them.

“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 was that other healthy cells were subjected to short term attacks. Nothing like the attack on the cancer cells, though.

The Stanford crew recently received a $20 million dollar grant to move their research from mouse to human safety testing.
