Israeli scientists have promised a cure for cancer in a year. Experts are skeptical

Israeli scientists are expected to receive a cure for cancer within a year, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies (AEBi) said. However, they do not currently have enough data to make such claims responsibly.

Israeli scientists should receive a cure for cancer within a year. This was announced on the pages of the Jerusalem Post by Dan Aridor, a representative of Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies (AEBi). He calls the new developments revolutionary.

“Our cancer drug will be effective from day one, treatment will last for several weeks, will have no side effects at all, or only minimal. In addition, it will be much cheaper than most other cancer treatments,”Aridor said in an interview. The article also reports that the company has conducted research in mice and is now on the cusp of starting clinical trials.

AEBi has named the cancer drug MuTaTo, which stands for multi-target toxin. It targets cancer cells with multiple peptides, the company said, and this multi-targeting attack is the basis for effective cancer treatments. Laboratory experiments have shown that the toxin inhibits the growth of cancer cells in mice without affecting healthy animal cells at all.

Ilan Morad, CEO of the company, recalled that in 2018 the Nobel Prize was awarded for the development of a method for using special antibodies against cancer cells. Israeli experts say that their method is similar, but the peptides they have developed should be simpler and more effective.

However, a number of experts are rather skeptical about the statement of Israeli developers.

“While new discoveries are constantly occurring, it is highly unlikely that the company will develop something within a year that can cure any type of cancer. It's just not possible,”Benjamin Neel, director of the Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU, told ABC.

Dr. Neal also calls such statements untrue, irresponsible and cruel, as they give false hope to the sick. The story is rife with claims based on laboratory animal studies that are not applicable to humans, he said. In addition, the company has not yet bothered to publish a detailed study report, according to Neil.

“When it's published in a respectable magazine, we can study it, and then it will be a completely different conversation,” Neal said.

A spokesman for the Duke Health network declined to comment on the ABC on the matter, citing a lack of scientific information published in peer-reviewed scientific journals on the matter.
