    I don’t know if this new therapy has been mentioned before but it has been developed in Australia and they are starting trials for advanced patients in September.

    It is only for existing tumours where they inject the EBC 46 directly into the tumour.

    It works like this:

    The head of the institute’s Cancer Drug Mechanism Group, Glen Boyle, said the drug broke down tumours within hours of being injected into them. Human melanoma grown on the skin of laboratory mice began to swell by the time the animals were returned to their cage, a sign the powerful response triggered by the drug was choking off the tumour’s blood supply. Minutes later, the growth was a bruised purple, a sign the cancer cells were dying.

    “A couple of days after that there is a scab where the tumour used to be,’’ said Dr Boyle, the lead author of research paper.

    All I can see is the article snippet at the top of the page. Apparently one needs a subscription to see the entire article. Is there any way you can copy and paste it here?

    But based on the snippet, it sounds like they haven’t even tested it on humans yet…
