Dichloroacetate: molecule against cancer that may never see the
Researchers at the University of Alberta have achieved encouraging results in the fight against cancer using a substance called dichloroacetate, however, as this substance does not require patent and is cheap compared with drugs used to fight cancer by Big Pharma, is Research has not received much support and is having an impact in the media, perhaps blocked by the same drug.
Canadian scientists tested the dichloroacetate in human cells and found that kills cancer cells in the lungs, brain and chest, leaving healthy cells alone. In rats with severe their cells shrank tumors when fed with water with it.
Dichloroacetate triggers an action in the mitochondria to that end naturally with cancer cells (traditionally focuses on glycolysis for combat).
Dr. Michelkias of the University of Alberta expressed its concern not to find funding for clinical trials because they do not represent dichloroacetate strong profits for private investors to not be patented.
This fits exactly with what he said the Nobel Prize in Medicine Richard J. Roberts in this interview about how the drugs that cure is not profitable and therefore are not developed by the pharmaceutical companies themselves instead to be chronic, developing medicines consumed in serialized form.
It is not spread hoaxes or give false hope to cancer sufferers but to be able to investigate all the possibilities but not profitable for the pharmaceutical industry.
For those wishing to delve deeper into this story I recommend reading DCA Research Team Publishes Results of Clinical Trials in explaining the need for further study of this molecule. Also very interesting letter from Dr Michelkias thanks for the outpouring of support to their research: Letter from Dr. Evangelos Michelakis
