Nanobees Sting Cancer To Death

Bee Sting. Image: donfoleyUS scientists have discovered Microscopic “nanobees” that literally sting tumours to death.

Swarms of nanobees were unleashed on breast and skin tumors in mice. The cancer-killing toxin, melittin, which is found in the bee venom, targeted cancerous cells, killing them by drilling holes in them.

Each spherical nanobee measures just three millionths of an inch across, but it’s sting could be of major importance in the fight against cancer.

“After four to five injections of melittin-carrying nanobees over several days, the growth of breast cancer tumours in the mice was slowed by nearly 25 per cent.

Melanoma – or skin cancer – tumours shrank in size by 88 per cent.”
