Weird Tree KILLS Cancer
For most folks, being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer is nothing short of a death sentence.
If you’re lucky, you’ll get to live for next the year or maybe two.
If you’re not lucky you could be gone in a matter of weeks.
And Big Pharma offers you no help… just sickening chemo and scorching radiation won’t off stop the disease on their own.
But the REAL CURE for pancreatic cancer could be closer than you think.
And it’s all thanks to a weird tree.
There are two reasons why pancreatic cancer is so difficult to beat.
For starters, a lack of good screening methods makes it difficult to diagnose it in the early stages. Then by the time it is diagnosed, it’s typically too advanced to treat.
Nearly half a century ago, scientists uncovered a compound in the bark of the camptotheca tree – a rare Chinese tree often called the “cancer tree” – that seemed to have properties that were particularly effective against prostate cancer cells.
It’s called camptothesin. And drug companies have struggled for years to make synthetic versions of it.
So far, only two have been approved by the FDA.
These derivatives of camptothesin have a remarkable ability to inhibit a protein that fuels the growth of pancreatic tumors.
Unfortunately, that same protein is also necessary for the normal growth of healthy tissue.
That makes these drugs highly toxic to both cancer cells AND healthy ones. Think of it as causing unacceptable collateral damage.
But researchers have recently discovered another derivative of camptothesin – this one is known as FL118– that works in different way.
It destroys cancer cells without attacking inhibiting that important protein. That means it selectively kills cancer cells without being toxic to healthy ones.
And the results are remarkable.
Used alone, FL118 eradicated pancreatic tumors.
But when combined with a chemotherapy drug called gemcitabine, it destroyed tumors that had been resistant to treatment with either compound alone.
It also destroyed the cancer’s stem cells, which prevented the tumors from spreading.
And unlike the other compounds derived from camptotheca trees, these were not toxic to healthy cells.
In other words, this unique compound could hold the key to the future of pancreatic cancer treatment.
To a brighter day,
