Can Cure for Leukaemia Lie in Molecule Isolated from Sea Sponges?
Are we Close to a Cure for Leukaemia?
According to a recent study done at Harvard University, and published in the journal Nature, a molecule gleaned from sea sponges – cortistatin A – can stop cancerous cells from multiplying and could be potentially used for the treatment of leukaemia.
