This cure is not something new and did not come in the conclusion suddenly like a magic. The team of researchers have been working on this since 2004, at Nottingham University in the UK, which was set up by Prof. Nigel Minton.
The experiment finally turned successful, after the treatment of various rats, dogs and human patients. The treatment involves by injecting Clostridium novyi into the tumor cells, thereby shrinking the size and growth of the tumors.
According to some comments in the research; “The team focused on soft tissue tumors because they are often locally advanced and have spread to normal tissue. And like the group in the UK, they were interested in the fact the bacteria cannot germinate in normal tissue and will only attack oxygen-starved tumor cells.”
Prof. Zhou explained in his words by stating; “advantage of using bacteria to treat cancer is that you can modify these bacteria relatively easily, to equip them with other therapeutic agents, or make them less toxic as we have done here.”
In the conclusion, the journal assures that so far, the injected bacteria shrinks the tumors without infecting or harming the healthy tissues.
