Cancer is one of the reason behind deaths in the world, citing the World Health Organization data.
Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, and is responsible for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018.
Globally, about 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer. Approximately 70% of deaths from cancer occur in low- and middle-income countries.
That’s why many companies around the globe is eager to find a cure to these health threat.
An Israeli pharmaceutical company is claiming it will have a “complete cure for cancer” within the next year, as reported in Futurism.
The company behind this development is Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies (AEBi), and based on the claims of its board chairman Dan Aridor, the treatment it’s working on sounds nothing short of revolutionary.
“Our cancer cure will be effective from day one, will last a duration of a few weeks, and will have no or minimal side-effects at a much lower cost than most other treatments on the market,” Aridor told The Jerusalem Post.
“Our solution will be both generic and personal.”
According to The Jerusalem Post, AEBi’s cancer cure is called MuTaTo, which stands for “multi-target toxin.” It attacks cancer cells with several peptides — compounds comprising chains of amino acids — at once, and this multi-pronged attack is key to the treatment’s efficacy, the company says.
“We made sure that the treatment will not be affected by mutations; cancer cells can mutate in such a way that targeted receptors are dropped by the cancer,” AEBi CEO Ilan Morad told the Post.
“The probability of having multiple mutations that would modify all targeted receptors simultaneously decreases dramatically with the number of targets used.”
“Instead of attacking receptors one at a time, we attack receptors three at a time,” he continued. “Not even cancer can mutate three receptors at the same time.”
