Mesothelioma – Will the JBIR Molecule Help Slow Tumours ?
While mesothelioma continues to kill, researchers continue to look for ways to slow or manage the disease. This BBC article reports on one man’s ongoing efforts to raise research money despite his own mesothelioma tumor. The effort is focused on on the JBIR-23 molecule, which is isolated from strains of the Streptomyces bacteria. A more technical explanation of the work (by Dr. Dobbs) is included in this paper seeking research assistants. Even more technical information is here.
