Sound too good to be true?
Well its not!Â Mayo Clinic Cancer Center researchers have shown that chaetocin, a by product of common wood mold is carrying possible anti-myeloma agents!
“Dr. Bibleâ€™s team has shown for the first time that chaetocin has promising anti-myeloma activity. They found that chaetocinâ€™s promise includes the ability to:
- Kill myeloma cells harboring a diverse array of genetic abnormalities
- Cause biological changes and induce oxidative stress in myeloma cells, leading to their death
- Selectively kill myeloma cells with superior efficacy to commonly-used anti-myeloma drugs including dexamethasone and doxorubicin
- Reduce myeloma growth in mice
- Rapidly accumulate in cancer cells
