Experimental studies show us cancer be treated without any drugs

A recent study published in the Journal Small says that cancer cells can self destruct themselves without any drugs. This is achieved by nanoparticle coated L-phenylalanine, which is vital for the growth of cancer cells. This amino acid cannot be produced by our own body and so obtained from animal products like meat and dairy. In recent experiments on mice, it was found that Nano-pPAAM or Nanoscopic phenylalanine Porous Amino Acid Mimic enabled the killing of cancer cells by self-destruction. The self-destruction was triggered by the production of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS)due to the nanoparticles. We should also see that these destruct only the cancer cells leaving the healthy cells behind.

Experts say this is out the conventional methods where drugs are mostly used as a potential treatment, but in this case, it is nanoparticles that are used. Scientists also away that these nanoparticles do not need any external stimuli to get activated. Moreover, it was also seen that these particles kill around 80 per cent of breast, skin, and gastric cancer cells in mice. This is said to be par with chemotherapy but minus the side effects and these nanoparticles are classified to be safe by the US food regulate its authorities. It is said that it can simplify the kind of cancer treatment in the future. However, there are necessary tests and trials before ending up for commercial preparation.

NanoSource-particles are not something new, and they have been hard widely used in the research field for various purposes. But in the recent past, nanoparticles were so said to act better without incurring more stress to the body like that of drugs. In addition, it is very difficult for these cancer cells to gain resistance against nanoparticles like that occurs on drugs. While everything about this treatment looks promising, it can easily become the future of treating cancer.
