Cure for Cancer is already found, Trojan Horse Drug attacks Cancer cells

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh created a cancer cure, who compared it to a Trojan Horse and its effects to a “metabolic warhead.”

“Cancer cells are very greedy and need to consume a high amount of food for energy. They typically absorb more than healthy cells”,

said the University of Edinburgh.

How does the cancer cure works

Scientists combined SeNBD, with a chemical food compound to trick malignant cells into ingesting the tiny cancer-killing molecule

When SeNBD is combined with a chemical food compound, it becomes “ideal prey for harmful cells,”. Which consume it “without being alerted to its toxic nature.”SeNBD is also a light-activated photosensitizer, which means it activates only when exposed to visible light.

This means a surgeon can precisely decide when to activate the drug, reducing the risk of it destroying healthy tissues and avoiding side effects like hair loss caused by other anti-cancer drugs.
“SeNBD is one of the tiniest photosensitizers ever created. Its use as a ‘Trojan horse’ in interventional medicine opens up dozens of new possibilities for killing harmful cells while sparing healthy tissue.” A ‘Trojan Horse’ drug that can kill cancer and bacterial cells without damaging nearby healthy tissue.

Sketch of a Wooden Greek Trojan Horse

The drug is delivered through the “front door of the cell,” rather than having to “find a way to batter through the cell’s defenses,”

according to Dr. Sam Benson, a post-doctoral researcher at the university.

The Greek mythology legend of the Trojan Horse tells of Greek soldiers building a massive hollowed-out wooden horse in which they hid to gain access to the city of Troy after pretending to desert the war.

The Trojans got the massive structure as a gift and ushered it inside the city walls. Then Greek warriors emerge from within the city walls and sack the city.

Success rate

The peer-review experiments of the cure for cancer were carried out on zebrafish and human cells. But researchers say more studies must be taken out to confirm if it is safe. Also to ensure if it is a swift method of treating early-stage cancer and drug-resistant bacteria.
