No Camels reports that there are over 100 types of cancer – but no cure. Thankfully, Israeli innovators and scientists keep making exciting breakthroughs in cancer research and detection:
1. Israeli researchers kill a cancerous tumor with synthetic cells
Israeli scientists at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have successfully treated a cancerous tumor, eradicating its cancer cells using a “nano-factory” – a synthetic cell that produces anti-cancer proteins within the tissue, the Technion announced in February
Synthetic cells, the prestigious Haifa-based university says, “are artificial systems with capacities similar to, and, at times, superior to those of natural cells.”
After experimenting with the synthetic cells in a lab, the technology was tested on mice where the proteins produced by the engineered particles eradicated the cancer cells once they reached the tumor, the Technion said.
