Can Antibiotics cure cancer?

The latest issue of Nexus magazine has an interesting article about suppressed evidence that cancer is caused by microbes(bacteria) that look suspiciously like tuberculosus. TB can be cured by antibiotics. Does that mean that cancer can too. I'd like to hear from anyone that has experienced a sudden disappearance of tumors and whether that person took antibiotics prior to the disappearance.

There are types of cancer that can be related to chronic inflammatory changes secondary to bacteria. For instance, Heliobacter pylori is a type of bacteria that has been discovered to grow in the lining of the stomach, and is responsible for most ulcers. However, if these bacteria are not killed, chronic infection with the H. pylori is associated with gastric and esophageal carcinomas. The use of a proton-pump inhibitor and two weeks of antibiotics wipes out the bacteria, dramatically decreasing the risk of cancer, depending on how long they had been infecting that patient's stomach.

In general, however, all cancer is due to a failure of the immune system. One of the prime functions of the immune system, besides fighting off foreign invaders like viruses and bacteria, is to monitor the reproduction of cells throughout the body. When abnormal cells develop, the immune system is supposed to destroy those cells, protecting against cancer.

If the immune system fails to identify those cells as abnormal, or fails to destroy them once identified, that is the pathology that leads to the development of cancer. Bacteria can create difficulties for the immune system, but are not the direct factors causing cancer.

Interesting. Did you read the Nexus article? I found it very compelling that cancer is indeed caused directly by a microbe.
