A team of scientists at a biotech company in Israel claimed that they will have a cure for cancer — all cancer — within a year.
Sadly, their claims were shot down by fellow scientists.
In recent articles in Israel and the United States, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd., or AEBi, which was founded in 2000 from the ITEK Weizmann technology incubator, announced that a new treatment being developed by the company would offer a complete cure for cancer with “no or minimal side-effects at a much lower cost than most other treatments on the market.”
The treatment, according to Dan Aridor, chairman of the board of AEBi, and CEO Dr. Ilan Morad — which they call MuTaTo, or multi-target toxin — works essentially like a cancer antibiotic, they told the Jerusalem Post. They said the results of pre-clinical trials have been very good.
But fellow scientists quickly rejected the claims, calling them “spurious,” “highly irresponsible,” “unsubstantiated” and even “cruel.”
The skeptical scientists note that the research group has not published any findings to back up their claims, as is traditional in the science community.
