The Ultimate Cure For Cancer, Finally Found? What Does Elephants Have To Do With It? Here Are The Details
Cancer, being noted as one of the most deadly and dreaded disease in mankind's history, has long perplexed a number of experts in terms of looking for the right solution to this problem. Until recently, a team of scientists led by Dr. Joshua Schiffman, a physician and scientist, together with the Huntsman Cancer Institute was found to have successfully synthesized an elephant protein that, allegedly has the ability to fight cancer with outstanding effectiveness.
Do Elephants Hold The Key To Combat Cancer?
According to reports revealed by Sputnik International, Dr. Schiffman believes that large mammals, such as elephants and whales, are the key to curing cancer. The researchers explain that it all started with a thought that cancer basically started out as a singular celled organism that has abruptly gone mad, being compared to animals with more cells in their bodies should have a higher chance of developing cancer that those with less cells. Additionally, experts have also revealed that elephants live about 60 years, and their bodies contain about 100 times the cells that a human does, which scientists refer to as Peto's Paradox effect.
Elephant Protein "EP53": The Cancer Cure
Furthermore, as per 2 Paragraphs, EP53 or sometimes called as p53 is the name of the elephant's protein that is believed to be the essential type of protein notable for having a well-known tumor-suppressing function.Previous studies conducted has shown that elephants rarely contract cancer and it turns out that the gene which apparently stimulates p53 production might be the reason why. Moreover, Dr. Schiffman has also revealed that basing from the In-vitro lab tests that has been performed over the past years have demonstrated that p53 do have the ability in warding off many types of cancer such as breast, lung and bone among others. Ultimately, Dr. Schiffman was said to be on the move on reproducing the molecule and enclosing it in a nanoparticle package that is believed to be administered to treat cancer. Researchers of the study has also highly emphasized that if their study yields success in animals, it would next be tested in humans.
