Tumour-loving bugs deliver killer blow

6 posts in this topic

A humble and harmless soil bacterium is the latest recruit in the war on cancer. The bug is known to grow only inside tumours when it infects humans and has now been given a lethal new trick.

Researchers genetically engineered Clostridium bacteria so they were able to convert a harmless chemical into a potent toxin. Injecting the chemical into the patient's bloodstream should therefore destroy tumours from the inside, while leaving healthy tissues unharmed.

Great article Althalus, all I can think of is "bon appetit".

I lost several members of my family to that disease including my good friend and brother in law who was only 38. Thanks smile.gif

It's really great that they have found a bacteria that can do this , but does it have to be genetically modified first huh.gif

Reminds me of the use of maggotts for removing gangrenouse flesh ( I hope nobody's eating unsure.gif )

Genetically modified or not If I am ever unfortunate enough to require this treatment I won't be complaining .
