By this time next year, a team of Israeli scientists say that they will have a complete cure for cancer in humans. Dan Aridor, chairman of the board of Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), said, “We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer” (CBN News). The cure is said to be effective from day one of the treatments, which lasts a few weeks. It is supposed to have minimal or no side effects and be much cheaper than other current cancer treatments.

The treatment is called MuTaTo, multi-target toxin. It acts as a “cancer antibiotic” and uses cancer-targeting peptides and a toxin to directly target cancer cells. It attacks three cancer receptors at a time instead of just one like other treatments do. This makes it work faster than cancer can grow and mutate. The drug has so far been successfully tested in mice and clinical trials in humans are projected to begin soon.

This drug is aimed at doing and working where all other cancer drugs fail. These treatments only attack specific cancer cells or a specific target at a time. Mutations as the cells continue to grow make the drugs essentially ineffective. MuTaTo is effective against these mutations. Other drugs do not attack the specific cancer stem cells. These allow cancer to mutate, grow, and become drug resistant. MuTaTo is small, fast and strong enough to destroy these cells and does not target non-cancer cells.

The Israeli company behind the drug is receiving some criticism. “If this company does, in fact, cure cancer, they will have my congratulations and thanks,” Dr. Ben Neel, director of Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Langone Health, told Fox News via email. “But cancer is multiple diseases, and it is highly unlikely that this company has found a ‘cure’ for cancer any more than there is a single cure for infections.” (FOX News)

There are 18.1 million new cases of cancer every year. Every sixth death in the world is because of cancer, making it the second leading cause of death. Especially in rural areas, getting treatment for cancer can become very difficult and too costly. If the drug does in fact work, it will save the world from millions of deaths due to cancer. As the second leading cause of death in the world, a cure for all types of cancer in humans would be, essentially, a miracle. Scientists are saying that this company has the best claim for a real cancer treatment that has come out in a long time. Hopefully, this is a valid claim and not just a cruel grasp at something that could be for cancer patients.
