Expert to try out 'cancer cure' on humans 'soon'
The Daily Star

Lebanese researcher Michel Obeid held a news conference on Friday at the National Council for Scientific Research in Beirut after he claimed to have discovered a medication to treat cancer a few months ago. Obeid said the medication "works on activating the immune system so it detects cancerous cells and destroys them." "Experiments have been conducted on about 5,000 mice ... Ninety percent recovered from different types and sizes of tumors," he said. According to Obeid, experiments will be conducted "soon" on human beings after securing the necessary funding and obtaining a patent. "But results will not be ready before six to seven years," he said.
