Antibody Discovered That Hunts And Kills Prostate Cancer

December 29, 2009

(ChattahBox) – U.S. Cancer researchers have discovered an antibody called “F77″, which, when injected into mice, will bond with prostate cancer tissue and “initiate direct cell death” in it, according to a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.  In initial trials with mice “F77″ bonded with tissue where prostate cancer was the primary cancer in almost all cases (97 per cent) and in tissue cores where the cancer had metastasized around 85 per cent of the time.”  Those are astounding rates, with a high percentage of success even attacking advanced stage cancer cells, while causing no harm to normal tissue or tumor tissues in other parts of the body at all. F77 even recognized androgen-independent cancer cells, present when prostate cancer is incurable, the study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania showed. If these results carry over to humans, this discovery would almost be a cure to prostate cancer.  Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men, claiming half a million lives each year worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.
