This might just the medical breakthrough everyone has been waiting for! Scientists discovered a rainforest berry that is believed to be powerful enough to kill cancer within days.
With its EBC-46 compound, this flushed berry known as ‘Hylandia dockrilli’ has the amazing capability to remove melanomas or head and neck tumors.
The drug is currently in the process of being approved as 300 animals, specifically cats, dogs and horses, have already been tested. It is now up for human testing.
"Approximately 75% of the cases, the tumor disappeared and had not come back. There’s a compound in the seed – it’s a very, very complicated process to purify this compound and why it’s there in the first place, we don’t know," said the leader of the QIMR Berghofer medical research institute in Brisbane, Dr. Glen Boyle.
"The compound works by three ways essentially: it kills the tumor cells directly, it cuts off the blood supply and it also activates the body’s own immune system to clean up the mess that’s left behind," he added.
In addition, scientists say it can make the tumors disappear within days with no side effects!
"The surprising thing for us and the thing that we don’t see very often is the speed with which this occurs. Usually, when you treat a tumor it takes several weeks for it to resolve, but this is very, very rapid. There’s a purpling of the area, of the tumor itself, and you see that within five minutes and you come back the next day and the tumor’s black and you come back a few days later and the tumor’s fallen off," Dr. Boyle shared.
"If the berry proves to be effective in fighting cancer in people, it will need to be offered as an additional treatment option, rather than a replacement for chemotherapy or surgery. Specifically, on elderly patients who can’t go through another round of chemotherapy, or who can’t go through another general anesthetic, should be offered the treatment." He added.
Unfortunately, these berries can only be found in Far Northern Queensland and cannot fight off metastatic cancer.
