Cancer targeted with reusable 'stinging nettle' treatment
www.eurekalert.org...




Cancer cells can be destroyed more effectively and selectively with a unique new reusable treatment...researchers have developed a new line of attack against cancer: an organic-osmium compound, which is triggered using a non-toxic dose of sodium formate, a natural product found in many organisms, including nettles and ants.

Named JPC11, it targets a metabolic process which cancer cells rely on to survive and multiply. It does this by converting a key substance used by cancer cells to provide the energy they need for rapid division (pyruvate) into an unnatural lactate - leading to the cells' destruction.

Importantly, the development opens up a possibility for a more selective cancer treatment as JPC11 was observed to specifically target the biochemistry of cancer cells, leaving healthy cells largely untouched - another improvement compared to existing platinum-based drugs, which can also attack non-cancerous cells.

"We have discovered that chemo-catalyst JPC11 has a unique mechanism of action - and we hope that this will lead to more effective, selective and safer treatments in the future."

"Platinum compounds are the most widely used drugs for cancer chemotherapy, but we urgently need to respond to the challenges of circumventing resistance and side-effects. Our lab is focussed on the discovery of truly novel anticancer drugs which can kill cells in totally new ways. Chemo-catalysts, especially those with immunogenic properties, might provide a breakthrough.

"It will take time to progress from the lab to the clinic..."


Another amazing discovery and breakthrough in fighting cancer with nature's greens! Who knew that stinging nettle (never mind ants as they are gross) have a powerful component in there to mess up the replication process of the cancerous cell. I have always tried to avoid touching these plants because of their STING! Now maybe I won't mind as much


Though I wonder if this is a broad spectrum targeting or a specific cancer cell it targets. I have tried to look up JPC11 ion Google but nothing has popped up for it. I wonder what "JPC" stands for? If anyone can find out that would be great!

Other healing benefits of the stinging nettle plant:



*notice how the stinging nettle plant 'kind of' resembles that of a pot plant? Just an observation

I've always thought that too.

So you have to wonder what plants that sort of look alike all have in common in their biochemistry?

Yeah, there are quite a few lookalikes. I would be interested to know too.

Even the flowers are similar.

I hope it works but I won't hold my breath. I am always let down by alternative treatments.
I have prostate issues and someone here convinced me nettle tea would help. I bought some. It didn't.
Really hope it's true

Try experimenting with different concentration levels of nettle along with alkaline water perhaps? There has to be some sort of mixture that will work for you. Never give up brother

Use real nettles. Not supermarket crap.

Some natural cures work for some and cause worse harm for others. Ginseng for example, can work miracles for some, and for me just a headache!

Angiogenesis, targeting the blood vessels that feed the tumor is the way to go.

And we can do that by eating certain foods that kill cancer.

sodium formate.

Also in bee stings.
I was attacked by hornets once when I was 15 and stung hundreds of times.


Drug companies , always trying to find new ways to treat an illness instead of cure them.

Home made fermented cabbage juice worked as a great pain reliever for pain in my stomach that I think came from ulcers.

What a terrible joke played on the citizens of the world,the big pharmacy corporations,develop diseases,and they make no bones about it,then get rich by having the cure,we have let this happen too long,we are no more then lab rats
