The video at the link below is about a new cancer drug being used on animals to treat specific types of cancer tumors. My understanding is that you can ask your Vet for this medicine, it is available for Veterinary use. Human trials are starting soon. This is very exciting stuff!!

QBiotics to Conduct EBC-46 Trial on Humans for Cancer Treatment
Submitted by Rasik Sharma on Mon, 06/14/2010 - 12:46

QBiotics, the biotech institute in Queensland, will be undertaking the trial of its drug EBC-46 on human beings for the treatment of cancer. The drug has been successfully tried on animals.

QBiotics aims at gathering at least $10 million for the experimental study of the drug. The drug was found in the seeds of the rainforest tree, blushwood. The tree grows only in the northern part of the province.

It has been successful in curing cancer tumors in as many as 100 animals, like horses, dogs and cats. On a striking note, no side effects of the drug were found in the treatments.

QBiotics CEO, Dr. Victoria Gordon, shared her excitement for the trial and said that the researchers are looking forward to the success of the drug.

“EBC-46 has shown real world proof of concept in animal trials and the time is right to raise the necessary capital to commence human development”, she said.

The Company officials told that EBC functions in a dissimilar way from the chemotherapy treatments, as it is essentially non-poisonous.

If successful, the drug will potentially treat skin, head, neck, breast and prostate cancers.

Couldn't edit.
I'm wondering why I can't find this in any of the major news sites or PubMed. :?
Seems like a new discovery such as that would be all over the place-- and journals should be published to substantiate the claims of successes in animals trials?

Maybe because they are doing this is Australia?? I read that the clinical trials are ongoing. It could be just a bunch of hype about nothing, but I think it is worth following to see how it all pans out. Also, Big Pharma may be down playing it because they don't have the rights to it... :|

Here is something from Ecobiotics website about the trials:
