Antibody finds, wipes out prostate cancer: study

Now if they could only find the antibody that wipes out cancer period. But we all know that cancer generates too much revenue. I know, I'm being cynical, but I have seen a lot being in the medical field for 15yrs.

From Breitbart.com;

US researchers have found an antibody that hunts down prostate cancer cells in mice and can destroy the killer disease even in an advanced stage, a study showed Monday.

The antibody, called F77, was found to bond more readily with cancerous prostate tissues and cells than with benign tissue and cells, and to promote the death of cancerous tissue, said the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (PNAS).

When injected in mice, F77 bonded with tissue where prostate cancer was the primary cancer in almost all cases (97 percent) and in tissue cores where the cancer had metastasized around 85 percent of the time.

Bye the Bye, would this technology be available to "everyone" under our elected cockroaches, "universal health care plan?"
