Marijuana freeze cancer cells and prevents them from spreading.
Marijuana freeze cancer cells n prevents them from spreading .
A chemical found in marijuana, called cannabidiol, it freeze cancer cells n prevents
from spreading ,reported by researchers at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco.
Canabidiol stops cancer by turning off a gene called (Id-1) ,Cancer cells make more copies of
this gene than non-cancer cell, n it helps them spread through out the body.
The researchers studied breast cancer cells in the lab that had high expression level
of (Id-1) and treated them with canabidiol. After treatment the cells had decreased Id-1
expresion and were less aggressive spreaders.
Pierre Desprez is a molecular biologist (one of the scientists behind this discovery) he spent decades
studying (ID-1), the gene that cause cancer to spread in our body.
Pierre Desprez said –
“It took us about 20 years of research to figure this out, but now we are very excited.
We want to get started with trials as soon as possible.”
McAllister and pierre Desprez first published on paper about the finding of this
chemical in Marijuana in 2007. Since then, their team has found that it works
both in the lab and in animals. And now, they’ve found even more good news.
