Flower can boost efficiency of anti-cancer drugs
London: An extract from the white bloom can boost the efficiency of anti-cancer drugs by one million times, claim scientists.
According to experts working for Leukaemia Busters, molecules from Gypsophila Paniculata - commonly known as Baby’s Breath - appeared in trials to break down the membrane of deadly cancer cells.
This makes it far easier for antibody-based drugs to attack the cancer itself, reports The Sun.
The Southampton-based charity was set up by Dr David Flavell and his wife Bee.
Dr Flavell said yesterday: "This could truly revolutionise the way these antibody-based drugs work and it will save lives. And there is a really big possibility this can be used for many cancers."
Scientists are now preparing for clinical trials.
