ABSTRACT
Researchers at Stanford have discovered a drug that has cured breast, ovary, colon, bladder, brain, liver and prostate cancer in mice. The possible miracle drug works by blocking the CD47 protein that keeps the body's immune system from attacking a cell. While the protein is produced in normal cells, abnormal tumor cells produce more of the protein blocking the immune system from destroying the cancerous cells. The scientists have received a $20 mil grant to test the drug for safety in humans.
