Default Possible cancer cure........results look promising!

http://www.csuohio.edu/class/com/cle...ews110104.html


Just as Sir Alexander Fleming unexpectedly discovered penicillin while studying bacteria more than 80 years ago, Cleveland State University’s Dr. Michael Kalafatis has discovered a potential cure for cancer while studying blood coagulation.


The treatment drug is a kinase inhibitor, an enzyme that is able to interfere with the abnormal cell growth associated with cancer. The inhibitor has successfully stopped uncontrolled cell proliferation in many different types of cancer cells in tests performed at both CSU and the Cleveland Clinic.


The clinic tested the treatment in lab cultures on leukemia, breast cancer, skin cancer, renal cancer, brain cancer and prostate cancer cells. Each time, the cell growth not only stopped, but the existing abnormal cells died, according to a CSU research office document.


Focusing on brain and breast cancer, the Cleveland Clinic has already successfully tested the drug on mice. According to the CSU Office of Sponsored Research Programs and Research, the chemical not only stopped the cancer cells from growing, it also did not cause any noticeable side effects or kill the mice.

This would be spectacular, and it sounds great. But I'm always leery just because you hear about these new cure fairly regularly and then inevitably they don't work as advertised in preliminary trials and then its back to the drawing board.

But here's holding out hope

very true, but the fact its working on mice with no side effects is pretty good news. I normally don't post this kinda stuff, but since i go to and work full time at cleveland state univ figured i would. lol

Not the first time they have had these kind of results, we have been able to cure mice with cancer for many years, most therapies just won't translate to humans for a number of reason, and most therapies that do translate are stalls at best, the tumor keeps mutating and eventually the receptor the drug binds to will be blocked.

Here's a necesary thing to consider: Cancer isn't ONE thing. There are over 200 different kinds of cancer, and it doesn't make sense that ALL types of cancer would respond to ONE treatment.

Still, highly encouraging!

Hell I know I would. Think of being able to keep all those lung cancer deaths from happening so those people can keep buying cigarettes.

lol mmk. Tell that to oh so expensive penicillin that's save countless lives since its discovery. Expensive **** is expensive, the end. Something as simple as a drug to cure something won't be so high few can have it's benefits because guess what... CANCER DOESN'T CHOSE WHO TO ATTACK BASED ON SOCIAL STATUS. Current treatment for cancer is long arduous, and far more complicated than a drug. If they market a drug to the vastly fewer rich people who get cancer they will lose money.

Yes, there are 200 different types of cancer, but almost all of them involve uncontrolled growth of cells, which the drug in this article stops and kills.

Guy might not be a quack ... there's another researcher with similar results who was profiled on 60 Minutes:

They don't care and neither do the hospitals whom buy the drugs fairly cheap and then turn around and charge the patient out the wazoo for treatment ( it's basically a monopoly/extortion) i wish it were different but sadly it isn't.

This is why Health Care Reform scares the crap out of the industry "leaders".

To curb many of these excesses, all the Congress has to do is allow Medicare and Medicaid to negotiate drug prices with the companies......

Wouldn't it be nice if congress did the right thing for once iam sick and tired of being a walking wallet that doesn't have unlimited funds heres an example rarely i get a little asthma so i get an inhaler which was 10.00 bucks well this year they have a new fancy one and i get a prescription and when i go to get it the ***** is 50.00! i said never mind i will suffer.

Another possibly treatment for Cancer is DCA http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0oGk9_XHj...hedcasite.com/ My Dad had the worst type of Cancer small cell lung cancer and was stage 4 with 2 months to live . My dad went to canada and got DCA plus added high doses of COq10 plus high doses of grape extract and the Cancer was all gone in 3 weeks. Nobody can potent the drug rights to DCA so may never get FDA approval.

Glad to hear your dad beat it too bad red tape keeps it in the dark for the others.

Sounds like a great treatment for cancer and hope the Drug is patentable because it will never see the light of day unless someone can make billions on it. FDA is owned by the drug industry.
