Scientists May Be Able To Modify Anthrax To Cure Cancer – Your Move Ebola
In what may be the weirdest sentence of the day - scientists may be able to modify Anthrax to cure cancer. Yeah - the same bacteria that attacks the skin, intestines, and lungs may be able to cure, or help in the fight against, cancer! Granted it would be a modified version of the bacteria but this is still huge news!
Scientists at MIT think that since Anthrax is so good at delivering its toxins to cells that they can modify it to deliver antibodies instead of toxins. Right now they are testing it on mice with tumors - but if it is successful this could be one of the biggest medical advances in many of our lives. Your move Ebola! Maybe they can use Ebola for good eventually too?
Would you get Anthrax if it might cure cancer?
