In an exciting recent announcement, a small team of Israeli scientists believe they might have found a complete cure for 90% of cancers! Clarifying this, Dan Aridor, chairman of the board of Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies, boldly remarked that “We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer.” Aridor added, “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. Our solution will be both generic and personal.” The CEO of Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies, Dr. Ilan Morad, was quoted by The Jerusalem Post as saying their treatment, referred to as MuTaTo (multi-target toxin) is essentially on the scale of a cancer antibiotic. It amounts to a disruption technology of the highest order. Morad elaborated that, basically, the team had to identify why other cancer-killing drugs and treatments do not work or eventually fail. Then, the team found a way to counter that effect.
Targeted Cancer Killing Approach
The new treatment, MuTaTo uses a combination of several cancer-targeting peptides for each cancer cell at the same time, combined with a strong peptide toxin that kills cancer cells specifically. By using at least three targeting peptides on the same structure with a strong toxin, Morad said, “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.” Morad added that many current cancer treatments allow the cancer to return because they do not address the cancer stem cells. MuTaTo’s multiple-target attack ensures that the cancer stem cells will be destroyed as well. Additionally, Morad said their discovery could also reduce the sickening side-effects of most cancer treatments, which stem from drug treatments interacting with the wrong or additional targets, or the correct targets but on non-cancerous cells. The MuTaTo cancer treatment will eventually be personalized. Each patient will provide a piece of his biopsy to the lab, which would then analyze it to know which receptors are overexpressed. The individual would then be administered exactly the molecule cocktail needed to cure his disease.
Relevant Bible Passages
We believe the Bible teaches that the Lord is the ultimate healer of our infirmities (Isaiah 53:4 cf. Matthew 8:5-17) and while we believe that we will only be free from all sickness and illness when we are in the presence of the Lord, we can certainly praise God for the miracles of healing He delivers through the hands of those who seek to alleviate humanity of such dreadful diseases! Likewise, since the Lord has the power to heal all our diseases (Psalm 103:2) it is certainly within His divine will to use the team of Israeli scientists at Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies to achieve that objective. Let us pray that this new breakthrough will result in the cure for cancer as the scientists believe.
