Mesothelioma treatment using Egg cells of Northern Leopard Frog
Tuesday, January 13, 2009
Mesothelioma is a highly aggressive cancer due to asbestos exposure. Once asbestos particles inhaled, they embedded in the lining of lungs and cause malignant diseases like mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer. There are several treatment methodologies for mesothelioma viz. surgery, chemotherapy and radiological techniques are available. Recently, Researchers, Hospitals, Pharmaceutical companies and Universities are involved with the new scientific investigations into asbestos and related cancer in an effort to develop novel and potentially curative cancer treatments.

An innovative treatment method is discovered by the Scientists from the United States and United Kingdom called amphinase which cause the tumors to die. Amphinase has shown the best results in treating brain tumors. A synthetic version of a molecule found in the egg cells of the Northern leopard frog may provide the world with the first drug treatment for various malignant tumors. The Northern leopard frog is a species of leopard frog that is native to certain regions of the United States and Canada. Amphinase is the second anti-tumor drug to be isolated by Alfacell Corporation from the Northern leopard frog. The other drug, ONCONASE (R) (ranpirnase) is currently in a late-stage clinical trial as a potential treatment for malignant mesothelioma.

The drug's key researcher, Professor Ravi Acharya, Department of Biology and Biochemistry claims that amphinase is highly specific in recognizing and destroying cancer and tumor cells.
