A study by several scientists has found a molecule in the immune system that eliminates and kill cancer cells, giving hope to cancer patients.
Scientists from King’s College London, have published research into colorectal tumors in the laboratory. They have found a protein linked to a molecule in the immune system called BGPP. That is able to suppress tumors and commit malignant cancer cells.
New treatment to kill cancer cells
The BGP molecule makes the tumor more visible to the immune system, eliminating it and preventing it from returning afterward.
Calling the discovery a new glimmer of hope for getting rid of the malignant disease.
The scientists conducted their experiments using:
The lowest therapeutic dose of the molecule “BGP” on the cells of colorectal cancer;
- The result was the exhaustion of cancer cells and suicide.

The scientists said:
In addition to helping to eliminate cancer, the molecule will provide long-term protection to patients by
- Conducting cancer-specific immunosuppression.
“It is a physiological molecule and is ideal for clinical trials with no damage,” said Professor Malucci, one of the doctors involved in the study.
Scientists pointed out that:
This discovery will prevent tumors from growing and spread throughout the body without those bad effects caused by chemotherapy.
- Hair loss
- In addition to it is not suitable for all patients
The anti-tumor property of the new molecule which scientists have recently discovered
- It is selective
- It does not cause damage to normal cells
