A group of Israeli scientists say a cure for cancer is within reach, even optimistically predicting that it will be found within a year.
But at least one expert in the U.S. has questioned the potential cure’s legitimacy and said it’s more likely just another claim on a list of «irresponsible and ultimately cruel false promises» for cancer patients.
The company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), has described its treatment, MuTaTo, as comparable to a cancer antibiotic that uses a multipronged approach similar to the treatment given to HIV patients. The Israeli team told The Jerusalem Post that this treatment relies on a combination of several peptides for each cancer cell, reportedly eliminating the chances of evasion through mutation.

“We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” Dan Aridor, of AEBi, told the news outlet.
