Dubai: A group of Arab researchers are claiming to have developed a medical formula for treating cancer by using camel`s milk and urine.
Researchers at Arab Biotechnology Company (ABC) have said experiments conducted on mice have proved to be 100 per cent successful.
They found that the camel`s immune system was rejuvenating itself every time they took samples of milk and urine, making it one of the strongest immune systems.
The lab mice that have been injected with the new drug since six months are still live and their behavior are natural like the healthy ones.
The new remedy carries smart cells that can attack poisonous substance in the cancerous cells without producing any side effects, they added.
"The medicine, a combination of camel`s milk and urine, has been tested on experimental mice and will be tested on human being," Dr Abdalla A Alnajjar, President of Arab Science and Technology Foundation said.
He added that experiments had started at Sharjah University and completed at the cancer institute in Baghdad.
"The new medicine was registered with the UK Patents Office in last February," he told reporters. Cancer kills 6 million persons every year in the world.
Citing studies by the Union for International Cancer Control, he said about 16 million people will be infected with the killer disease by 2010 with 50 per cent of cases in the developing world.
According to the Arab Cancer Control Association, cancer is the second cause of death in the Arab World after heart and communicable diseases.
Infection has reached alarming rates with 100-150 cases per 100,000 people, an increase of 213 per cent per annum.
He said the researcher had reprogrammed the immune system to accept certain chain of foods and the results were amazing.
According to him the formula treats Leukemia (blood cancer) and can be developed to cure other types of cancer infecting lung, liver and breast.
