According to a study published in the Biophysical Journal, researchers from Sao Paulo University and Leeds University have discovered that Polibia Paulista, originally Brazil, could help stop cancer cells from appearing. prostate, bladder and leukemia.
Leakage poisons attack cancer cells without affecting whole cells
In the study, they found that this Brazilian whalebone only attacked malignant cells, because it corresponds to those containing excess lipids. However, researchers say they still do not know who is causing this poison to attack only malignant cells.
The theory shows that the properties of cancer cells are those that change the difference, since the outer membrane contains phospholipids that are in healthy cells but in the inner membrane.
In the study, they noted that the open vessel was able to break down cancer cell membranes, which could mean a serious breakthrough in the search for drugs and treatments that are more effective in attacking cancer without affecting whole cells and organs.
