Could this be a major breakthrough? Scientists in Scotland have developed a treatment that, in experiments, eliminated cancer tumors in 10 days. The system uses a plasma protein to carry specialized DNA to the cancer cells; the DNA then produces a protein to destroy the cells. “The tumors were completely gone within 10 days. It is fantastic. When you talk about 10 days that is the time frame for curing a cold. Imagine if within 10 days you could completely make a tumor disappear,” said the lead researcher.
