As unusual goat milk can help in cancer treatment?

the value of goat's milk even more

Cancer is considered one of the main causes of death in the world, but scientists are now able to treat some of their varieties. If you believe the statistics, Paris Healthcare, thanks to methods of treating cancer in France has been cured 3 million people. An effective cure against dangerous diseases is the so-called cetuximab (Cetuximab), which slows the spread of cancer cells. Usually it is used in conjunction with chemotherapy when poisonous substances are used as means for destruction of the affected areas of the body. The price of Cetuximab is very high, so some group of scientists looking for a way to reduce its cost. Recently such a method was finally found — goat-mutants have learned to give milk components, which are contained in the above-mentioned medicine.

Cure for cancer

The Main active components cetuximab is monoclonal antibodies. The so-called particles, which are produced by human immune system and stop the development of viruses and cancerous cells. The researchers resorted to genetic engineering and have done so in the body of the goats started to produce these antibodies and became part of her milk. Po , the experiment was a success — from one liter of goat's milk, the scientists were able to identify 10 grams of monoclonal antibodies.

Anti-Cancer particles were more effective than those contained in cetuximab. When ingested, cancer patient, they are firmly bonded with the T-killers — immune system cells that are looking for in the body parasites the affected cells and tumors. Reaching the affected cells riding on the immune cells, monoclonal antibodies are starting to act on them and stop them spreading throughout the body. During this process chemotherapy, which involves the use of poisonous to cancer cells substances. The human body receives a relatively small harm, therefore such combinations are widely used in medicine.

Researchers claim that producing inside anti-cancer substances goat developed without deviations and feel like ordinary ones. Have they created the technology has several positive qualities. First, the generated monoclonal antibodies can be easily allocated from the total mass of milk and cleaned — but that's how it all happens, they are not reported. Secondly, and most importantly, the resulting similarity cetuximab is much cheaper than the original drug.

the Cost of cancer treatment

Currently, the cost of treatment with cetuximab costs about 13 thousand dollars. In terms of our money, it's almost 1 million rubles. But the treatment with this drug, it is not a one-time process. As a rule, it is conducted every month to obtain good results of treatment. But if the procedure is performed in conjunction with chemotherapy, the price may increase several times.

Goat's milk is easier to digest cow's and has a mild, creamy taste

The High cost of cetuximab due to the fact that its components are still produced only in laboratories. Their chemical structure is so complex that few people accepted this case and the less willing to do this, the less you can find a cure. And the more the drug is in short supply, the more expensive it is. Unfortunately, scientists have not shared how much they pay for the production of drugs against cancer, but the cost is clearly not reaches one million rubles. Although, the new method can not be called easy, because the goats first have to genetically modify, and milk is subjected to processing. At the same time for animals to be well groomed because they are doing useful work. In fact, these mutants save people's lives.

It is Important to note that cetuximab is not the only remedy against the spread of cancer cells. In the beginning of 2020, I wrote an article about how cancer with oral medication aimed at treating obesity. It also mentioned that cancer cells can be developed into body fat, which was clearly of less harm. In General, I advise you to read!
