A Huge Scientific Breakthrough Could Prevent 90% of Cancer-Related Deaths

on

Analysts at Cornell University have screened a protein that could block roughly 90% of cancer-related deaths.

According to their research,”TRAIL-Coated Leukocytes that Kill Cancer Cells in the Circulation,” which was presented on the web last week Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team, led by Cornell professor of biomedical engineering Michael King, has screened a protein that accounts metastasized tumors to cave through a touch. Because a great number of death caused by cancer are the issues of metastasized tumors, this progress can go a high way in handeling cancer.

“We’ve found a way to dispatch an army of killer white blood cells that cause apoptosis — the cancer cell’s own death — obliterating them from the bloodstream. When surrounded by these guys, it becomes nearly impossible for the cancer cell to escape,” said King.

The protein, Cancer Necrosis Factor Related Apoptosis-Inducing Ligand is connected with an adhesive protein called E-selective and added into the blood stream to clamp onto white blood cells. As the disease cells try to metastasize and compass through the blood stream, TRAIL corrupts them and causes the tumor to simply kill itself. In laboratory testing, mice with cancer were injected in their circulated blood and produced a 100% accomplished rate in killing cancer. TRAIL leaves healthy cells alone.

Though surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are often impressive at handeling a solid tumor, their efficacy reducts dramatically when the cancer escalates to the rest of the body. But with the revelation of TRAIL, we’ve taken a huge step in the battle against cancer.

    Hope more research is done in this direction, but a lot of cancer drug companies stand to lose a lot of money…

    Or…… they could stop spending time and money and go with what they know of cannabinoid oil and start treating patients now.. do some research, there are people ridding themselves of cancerous tumors in 6 months to a year…

    “Very simply, when THC connects to the CB1 or CB2 cannabinoid receptor site
    on the cancer cell, it causes an increase in ceramide synthesis which
    drives cell death. A normal healthy cell does not produce ceramide in
    the presence of THC, thus is not affected by the cannabinoid.

    The cancer cell dies, not because of cytotoxic chemicals, but because of a
    tiny little shift in the mitochondria. Within most cells there is a cell
    nucleus, numerous mitochondria (hundreds to thousands), and various
    other organelles in the cytoplasm. The purpose of the mitochondria is to
    produce energy (ATP) for cell use. As ceramide starts to accumulate,
    turning up the Sphingolipid Rheostat, it increases the mitochondrial
    membrane pore permeability to cytochrome c, a critical protein in energy
    synthesis. Cytochrome c is pushed out of the mitochondria, killing the
    source of energy for the cell.

    Ceramide also causes genotoxic stress in the cancer cell nucleus generating a
    protein called p53, whose job it is to disrupt calcium metabolism in the
    mitochondria. If this weren’t enough, ceramide disrupts the
    cellular lysosome, the cell’s digestive system that provides nutrients
    for all cell functions. Ceramide, and other sphingolipids, actively
    inhibit pro-survival pathways in the cell leaving no possibility at all
    of cancer cell survival. “
