New Cancer drug given patent!

Post by seahawks2884 »

Great news! Quote:Last week, the company received a U.S. patent for the way in which it cuts the blood supply to a tumour, preventing it from growing.

According to an Aurin Biotech news release, the oral medication accomplishes this "by preventing the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which induces capillary formation".

The news release states that "no other anti-cancer agents are known to arrest the progression of malignant tumours".

And initial tests have shown no side effects in research subjects.

“The most exciting aspect of this discovery is the unique way in which ATAC works,” McGeer said. “It starves the tumor of its needed blood supply by preventing the complement system from inducing it. A starved tumor may not disappear, but if it is arrested, it is no longer lethal. In other words, individuals doomed to die from a cancer can be rescued by this drug.”end quote

Totally good news.

Now all we have to do is convince the world to take just 10% off their defense budgets for just one year and put it towards finding a checkmate cure.

And if I had my rathers, take 20% off global defense budgets to find a cure for all disease and the ageing process... which would cure the planet of overpopulation because people wouldn't grow old, thereby negating the frantic need to reproduce within a 25 year-ish window.
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.

Aurin tricarboxylic acid has been used for some time to treat cancer but seems to be zeroing in on glioblastoma which would be awesome to have a treatment if not a cure.

This sounds like it was derived from thalidomide or at least the limited testing on certain male patients on particular cancers.
And yes it is the same drug that caused thalidomide babies, that why it was tested on male patients only.

I mentioned thalidomide treatment for cancer on the vaccine thread. It is still in use for various ailments.

Yes that is basically what I said about its use for certain cancer treatments meant.
