Eleutherobin From Coral Fights Cancer Cells

A rare Australian coral has found to be effective in the treatment of cancer. Eleutherobin,// a deadly poison which is obtained from the coral is found to kill the cancer cells.

Eleutherobin, which is produced from corals, to stop the fish from feeding on the corals, these toxins paralyze and kills the fish which come for feeding on the corals. The toxins were found to be 100 times stronger than taxol (drug which is widely used now for cancer treatment, which is derived from Pacific yew tree). It is difficult to get large quantities of Eleutherobin from corals, as it produces only minute quantities. But, scientists are working out to synthesize large quantities of the drug in the laboratory, but it has been a very difficult laborious work to isolate and synthesize the product. Professor Mann's team is making good progress in simplifying the procedure to create a substance that mimics nature's proven performer.

Mann told a gathering of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute here this month that work on synthesizing eleutherobin from scratch was well advanced.

Related Information on Cancer in Medindia: Info about Lung Cancer
Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the lung. Majority of people who get lung cancer have been cigarette smokers, but not all people who smoke get lung cancer. And, some people who have never smoked get lung cancer. Normal lung tissue is made up of cells that are programmed by nature to create lungs of a certain shape and function.

Sometimes the instructions to a cell go haywire and that cell and its offspring reproduce wildly, without regard for the shape and function of a lung. That wild reproduction can form tumors that clog up the lung and make it stop functioning as it should. Because of the large size of the lungs, cancer may grow for many years, undetected, without causing suspicion. Lung cancer can spread outside the l ungs without causing any symptoms. Adding to the confusion, the most common symptom of lung cancer, a persistent cough, can often be mistaken for a cold or bronchitis.

Cancer cells keep on multiplying without paying head to the body's command to stop. This abnormal growth of cells destroys the normal structure and the function of the affected tissue and the body in general. Among other cancers oral cancer is one of the most common causes of death. In male, oral cancer represents 4% of total body cancer and in female; it is 2% of all cancers. Majority of the oral cancers affect the outer layer of mucous membrane covering the oral cavity.

Information about Prostate cancer:
When a person is affected by prostate cancer, the cancer cells may spread out side the gland to other parts of the body. Most prostate cancers grow very slowly and never cause symptoms or spread. Autopsy studies show that many elderly men who died of other disease also had a prostate cancer which neither they nor their doctor were aware of. But some prostate cancers can grow and spread quickly. The people most likely to get prostate cancer are men over age 50.
