This is absolutely HUGE!

Australian scientists kill cancer cells with "Trojan Horse"


SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australian scientists have developed a "trojan horse" therapy to combat cancer, using a bacterially-derived nano cell to penetrate and disarm the cancer cell before a second nano cell kills it with chemotherapy drugs.

The "trojan horse" therapy has the potential to directly target cancer cells with chemotherapy, rather than the current treatment that sees chemotherapy drugs injected into a cancer patient and attacking both cancer and healthy cells.

Sydney scientists Dr Jennifer MacDiarmid and Dr Himanshu Brahmbhatt, who formed EnGenelC Pty Ltd in 2001, said they had achieved 100 percent survival in mice with human cancer cells by using the "trojan horse" therapy in the past two years.


I know there are always cures for cancer every once in a while, but the results of this cannot be ignored. I just hope this will be trialled in humans.

Lets hope big pharma doesn't bury this!

That's why this needs to get on ATS!

I'll be absolutely shocked if this is available before methods of exploitation of the process are well thought out and implemented.
Like, I'll eat my hat.
No way, if this is true, will it see the light of day as quick as it can. We should all closely follow the evolution of the ownership of the rights of this process.
Maybe i'm jumping the gun, but 100%? That's, like, a super high rate.

I'm sorry, but even if it is a cure, it will never see the light of day. There's no profit in curing diseases. Cancer is one of the Pharmaceuticals most profitable diseases. Do you really think they are going to let that go? Let's compare apples to apples here. Pharma is the Big Oil in the medical world. Can you see the correlation? Disease is a business, and it makes them money. They will never allow it to end because of a cure-all for any of their money makers. Think of the Pharma as the Pimp, and the Disease as the Whore.

Can it kill all kinds of cancer? Would human cancer even kill a mouse?

Anyway, it SOUNDS good. Maybe, just maybe, it will be true and the people will be able to get it. And it will be easy to make and treat to somebody so it wont be too expensive.
If they dont release it. Maybe one good doctor will some how get some of it, find out how to replicate it, and be a roaming doctor who treats patients with cancer.
Or open his own little business to treat cancer people.

Now we just need a way to cure diarrhea. Since it is more responible for more deaths then AIDS!!!

It's always good news to hear someone has find a cure for some sort of cancer.

Lost me mother 10 years ago because of intestigens cancer and my father of throath cancer and complications due to his therapy in 2004.

The idea of nano techno things creeping around in my body doesn't appeal to me thoug.

There are very good results possible with threatments of Dendritic Cell Therapy and hyperthermia.


Dendritic cells (DCs) are immune cells and form part of the mammalian immune system. Their main function is to process antigen material and present it on the surface to other cells of the immune system, thus functioning as antigen-presenting cells

Star and flag for you!

Some very interesting stuff. The idea of using one virus of bacterium to kill another has been around for a while and the research into it is growing rapidly. I hope to see more and more cures for age old diseases coming along soon.

Gotta agree with this guy. This will be last we hear of it, they (Pharmacy compines) will kill the people who made the cure. Or at least make it so it doesnt work and kill the peoples Characters. It happens all the time. There was a cure back in the 70's i read about in a book called "Behold a Pale Horse" Dude was killed. All I have to say is I hope this works out well.

Kiwifoot, S&F, sir!


This is amazing...all the various forms of disease could possible be eradicated. However, this world kill Big Pharma's various cash cows.

Nano science has really developed over the past few years...it will dramatically change all of our lives. There is a lot riding on Nano technology as I look forward to seeing it progress and evolve.


Ciao!

Oreyeon, I dig your analogy "Think of the Pharma as the Pimp, and the Disease as the Whore".

I really wish it was as easy as this cure will work and it will be released to millions to cure their cancers. So many many lives would be saved and this would be a major step for humanity...

but with Obama's new healthcare plan if you dont meet the criteria he sets forth you wont receive the cure. ONly sent home to die, knowing theres a cure, its just not for you.

Even if its not that, the same thing that happened with the AIDS vaccine will happen with this, it will be hid and only available to a select few for the price of millions of dollars.
I.E. notice how often you heard of AIDS a while back and how often it's talked baout now. Besides, look at Magic Johnson, that guy has had HIV for almost 20 years and is still kickin, doesnt even show the signs of having AIDS. thats a conspiracy in itself

It makes you wonder how many cures for cancer are out there. Someone on another thread, about another cancer cure posed the question: how many high ranking government officials have died from cancer?

Just imagine for a moment what the world would be like if cancer were cured. Millions - possibly billions - of people who would otherwise die wouldn't, and the worldwide population would skyrocket. You'd see people living well past 100 years, maybe to 150, 200, and beyond. New and severe limits to human reproduction would have to be brutally enforced - the population control policies of China would seem mild by comparison.

What is most horrifying is that while cancer would no longer exist, most of the other ailments and difficulties of old age would. An enormous amount of mankind's resources, time, and energy would have to be devoted to caring for the increasing multitudes of elderly who, without cancer, would continue to breathe. I say breathe because, with bodies so emaciated and frail, you wouldn't call them living.

If you think about it, a cure for cancer may turn out to be the cruelest invention ever devised.

Not only i agree with you, but i also have to say that by not curing diceases like this, is a way to control the number of the human population.

About the second paragraph. I truely support "Passive Euthanasia" with high doses of pain killers for that. At least, we could have a "not in pain and quick death".
