For all the Israel-haters out there, they'd better hope that that Israelis are forgiving if they are stricken with cancer, because if a new report out of Israel turns out to be true, scientists in the Jewish state have discovered a cure. A team of Israeli scientists believes so. It's developed by a company called Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd.

The treatment is called MuTaTo, which stands for multi-target toxin, and is created to act as a cancer antibiotic. Now peptides are seen as a promising approach to treat disease. Once inside, the protein shows up on the phage's surface, making it apparent to researchers who can use the phages to find interactions with other proteins, DNA sequences and small molecules.

Morad said MuTaTo is also strong enough to both destroy stem cells and penetrate where other drugs can not reach.

'At the same time, we must always offer a note of caution that the process to get this treatment from mouse to man is not always a simple and uncomplicated journey'. The company will soon begin clinical trials that could be completed within "a few years" and would make the treatment available in specific cases, the Post reports. So I'm not so sure how they might have a cure-all for cancer by this time next year.

The overall nationwide cancer death rate fell continuously from 1991 to 2016 by a total of 27%, according to a study by the American Cancer Society, published Tuesday in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians. Aridor concluded, "Our results are consistent and repeatable". It's multiple diseases that are very complex with different types of tumors and locations.
