Israeli Scientists May Have Found a Cure for Cancer

By Alexandria Hein, 1-29-19, at Fox News:

A group of Israeli scientists say a cure for cancer is within reach, even optimistically predicting that it will be found within a year.

The company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), has described its treatment, MuTaTo, as comparable to a cancer antibiotic that uses a multipronged approach similar to the treatment given to HIV patients. The Israeli team told The Jerusalem Post that this treatment relies on a combination of several peptides for each cancer cell, reportedly eliminating the chances of evasion through mutation.

“We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” Dan Aridor, of AEBi, told the news outlet.

The company’s CEO, Dr. Ilan Morad, said MuTaTo also works to target cancer stem cells, eliminating the chances of recurrence, with Aridor claiming that it will be effective from “Day 1” and cause “no or minimal side effects at a much lower cost than most other treatments.”

“Our solution will be both generic and personal,” Aridor said.

But at least one expert in the U.S. has questioned the potential cure’s legitimacy and said it’s more likely just another claim on a list of “irresponsible and ultimately cruel false promises” for cancer patients.

But Dr. Ben Neel, director of Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Langone Health, is skeptical, telling Fox News via email: “Of course, curing cancer is the goal of everyone who comes to work every day at a cancer center — and if this company does, in fact, cure cancer, they will have my congratulations and thanks. But cancer is multiple diseases, and it is highly unlikely that this company has found a ‘cure’ for cancer, anymore than there is a single cure for infections.”

Said Neel, “More likely, this claim is yet another in a long line of spurious, irresponsible and ultimately cruel false promises for cancer patients.”

More detail from the Daily Wire’s post:

Morad said the company’s initial efforts involved attempting to find “individual novel peptides for specific cancers.” But then he and colleague Dr. Hanan Itzhaki decided to go for broke. He explained that most anti-cancer drugs attack a specific target on or in the cancer cell, but they often trigger a mutation that makes the drug ineffective. But MuTato, as the Jerusalem Post notes, uses “a combination of several cancer-targeting peptides for each cancer cell at the same time, combined with a strong peptide toxin that would kill cancer cells specifically.”

Morad said MuTato, because it attacks multiple targets, destroys the proteins targeted on the cancer cell. Morad also said because the peptide parts of MuTaTo are tiny and flexible, they can penetrate areas other drugs fail to reach. He stated, “This should make the whole molecule non-immunogenic in most cases and would enable repeated administration of the drug.”

Dr Ben Neel is big on research and biology as well as being the recipient of numerous government grants, so of course he’d dismiss it. Many people, including me, have long believed that there’s more money to be made in research and treatment than there is curing it and that’s part of the reason we haven’t found a cure.

Dr. Manny Alvarez on Fox said that over the last 25 years cancer deaths have declined 27%, due to better screenings and treatments. Any decline is good, but that’s barely more than one percent per year.  With all the money we pour into this horrible disease, we should be doing better.

There’s probably not a person in this country that either hasn’t had cancer or at least been affected by it, so this is the best news we’ve seen in a very long time. Leave it to the Israelis, untethered by multitudes of US government regulations, to find a different approach and come away with a possible cure.

  1. I think you just killed off the last cynicism-free cell that I had, Kathy. It never occurred to me that anyone would want to forestall a cure for cancer, but having seen what people are capable of for decades now I think you could be right.

    I hope this isn’t too good to be true. I’ve known too many people who have been struck by cancer including both my parents, my mother-in-law, my brother-in-law, my college roommate (before the age of 40, leaving 3 young kids) and currently my nephew and a good friend – both in their early 40’s and with young children – are battling for their lives. Please let them be right.

    • Sorry about that, CW, but I haven’t seen any medical break-throughs in a long time, and the flu shot, the pneumonia shot and the shingles vaccine don’t count, because they don’t work half the time. There’s no fix for things like MS, MD, and Lou Gehrig’s disease that have been with us for decades. We spent over 50 years watching Jerry Lewis telethons and all they ever did was buy more equipment for the people afflicted with MD and spend more on research.

      Like you, and so many others, I’ve lost family and friends to cancer too, and right now my sister-in-law is fighting it. I’m sure hoping the Israelis are onto something, and with their outside the box thinking, maybe it’s the real thing. What an ironic twist it would be for the world to be indebted to Israel.

  2. I read this this morning and texted it to my relatives who have cancer. It is very hopeful and with the Israelis, we have more brain power and ‘do-goodism’ than on any other group on the planet. We have seen more from them in history than any other group. So, I applaud them and will pray for their success. God’s gift to mankind in many ways.

    • Indeed, the Israelis have had many successes in several fields over the years, including an effective wall. Hopefully, it won’t be false promises as Dr. Neel said.

    • Exactly, Crawfish. Since the days of the measles and mumps vaccine, we’ve made leaps and bounds in technology, but we still can’t stop, cure or vaccinate for so many diseases, and it’s mostly because of greed, imo.

      I’m seeing an increase in flights to Israel if they’re successful.
