Children's Cancer Research Centre, based at Hope Hospital, had made a huge
Now they have been awarded £50,000 to start trials on the mint leaf
The trials, funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research
Council, will refine the drug and test it on cancer cells.
The pre-clinical trials are expected to last a year before the team starts
an extended £250,000 trial on cancer patients.
The herb scutellaria barbata was first identified by Chinese doctors
hundreds of years ago, but it's the first time a pure form of the herb has
been extracted and developed into a cancer-fighting drug.
The drug targets the blood vessels supplying oxygen and nutrients to
cancer cells, but it does not affect healthy cells, unlike conventional
chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment.
Dr Sylvie Ducki, who originally extracted the pure form of the herb as
part of her PhD project, said: "The funding is crucial because it
will enable us to study how the drug is metabolised. If successful, the
project may result in a new class of cancer-fighting drugs - amongst the
safest and most effective ever."
Project leader Professor Alan McGown now hopes to get the drug on the
market within five years.
The former head of drug development at Cancer Research UK and the Paterson
Institute at the Christie Hospital, claims the mint extract is the most
He said: "Further funding is now crucial if we are to make this
concept a reality."
Prof McGown is trying to raise enough money to carry out clinical trials.

A colonic gently cleanses by flushing the large intestine with warm water, and sometimes herbal preparations.Due to modern processed foods and stress, most people suffer from sticky, long-term waste in the colon, causing toxicity and difficult absorption. Stagnant fecal matter putrefies giving off toxins, which can then be reabsorbed into the body.
The Role of Vitamin C in Wound Healing In mammals, vitamin C is necessary for a normal response to physiological stressors, with this need increasing during times of injury. In humans, certain populations are more likely to be deficient in vitamin C, to include the elderly, alcoholics, drug abusers and people who are malnourished. Vitamin C deficiency can also occur in those with restricted eating patterns, prolonged hospitalization, severe illnesses and poor dietary intake; resulting in severe clinical consequences if there is injury or trauma.
Why is "Hot Chemo" an Acceptable Cancer Treatment - But IV Vitamin C is "Too Far Out There"? Because it is a vitamin, IV-C is inexpensive, and it cannot be patented, so no one makes any serious money. Oncologists lose the financial incentive to prescribe it. Patients liken hot chemotherapy to "being filleted, disemboweled, and then bathed in hot poison." Best patient care, or merely the biggest moneymaker?
Vitamin C Prevents Radiation Damage.
Four workers (at Fukushima Daichi Nuclear Power Plant after explosions) who took intravenous vitamin C (25,000 mg) therapy before they went in, and continuously took anti-oxidative supplements during the working period, had no significant change in both free DNA and overall cancer risk.
