A team of scientists in Australia have developed a "trojan horse" to help combat cancer, the treatment would allow chemotherapy to directly target cancer cells instead of the current method of using it on both cancerous and healthy cells.
Australian scientists have developed a "trojan horse" therapy to combat cancer, using a bacterially-derived nano cell to penetrate and disarm the cancer cell before a second nano cell kills it with chemotherapy drugs."

I am currently working on a very similar research project here in the USA with a known university. Ours involve using clusters of nanodiamonds to deliver the "medicine" to a tumor. Once there the medicine seeps out of the cluster and attacks the tumor. The size of these clusters are 8nm to 10nm. This kind of work wasn't possible last year as no one was able to produce single crystal nanodiamond in quantity. It's very interesting. Really fascinating! I knew you was a smarty pants! Get back to work, work over time! No pressure now. Remember to pet the cat and chase the dog!

please give it to my step brother hes only got 17 months Nobody has an expiration date. It really bugs me when doctors have the nerve to put a time limit on your life. They should know better as authority figures that people tend to take what they say as the gospel. Unfortunately, once it gets into your subconscious that you are going to die your body reacts in kind. As long as a person is alive they have control and can choose to fight. God gave us amazing bodies that have the potential to do things that science has yet to understand. I know it's easy to run our mouths but I will pray for you... [More]

Hahaha, it's such a joke everytime you hear of another invented cancer cure, there's already many natural things that work. Cannabis being one of them, I know of many people with different types of cancers who have been cure because of it. http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1516108/canc...min_b17_part_1/ WATCH THIS! And this, there's a medical doctor who lives not far from me who cured himself of cancer using vitamin B.

"Australian scientists have developed a "trojan horse" therapy to combat cancer, using a bacterially-derived nano cell to penetrate and disarm the cancer cell before a second nano cell kills it with chemotherapy drugs." This sounds like a pre-treatment to chemotherapy, allowing the chemotherapy better access to the cancer cells. My three separate regimens of six each of Chemotherapy, it begins with the needles tearing up my arms, that became so painful. Your veins get real sensitive and damage easily after the first treatment. I now have a port and it does help. I didn't care for the hours of ... [More]

While there are many natural cancer killers, they tend to only help when the cancer is in it's early stages. I am all for natural treatments but I am also confident that we are developing a system for stage 2 and beyond that offer a pinpoint delivery sys... [More]
