Although everyone, including her parents as well as the researchers at the department of oncology, was skeptical at first, an 8-year-old’s theory soon became the subject of a study at the Royal Manchester Laboratory, where scientists were trying to find a cure for cancer.
Family dinners usually start with questions relating to the typical daily activities of the members; however this wasn’t the case with the Lisantis. The parents, both scientists-researchers in the field of oncology, asked their 8-year-old daughter Camilla how she would cure cancer. Her answer was straightforward: Antibiotics, like a sore throat! And, it appears, she was right.
Camilla’s theory soon became the subject of a study at the Royal Manchester Laboratory where researchers in the field of oncology were trying to find a cure for cancer.
Shockingly, the findings revealed that the young girl was right. It turned out that some of the cheapest and most commonly used antibiotics in the world can actually destroy some of the most dangerous cancers including breast, prostate, lung, ovarian, pancreatic, and brain cancer.
Doxycycline, an antibiotic that is used in the treatment of various infections caused by bacteria, proved most efficient in treating cancer patients. It’s easily available and quite inexpensive compared to treatment with cytostatics.
While testing his daughter’s theory in the laboratory, professor Lisanti discovered that antibiotics actually destroy the mitochondria – the parts of a cancer cell that help them reproduce, meaning they inhibit growth thus preventing metastasizing.
“So many times, while having dinner, my wife and I talked about our research and cancer so one evening we asked our daughter what she thought of it, and she gave us a shocking answer, which at first sounded totally surreal, but then it proved completely true, “explain Michael and Federica Lisanti, whose scientific work in this field was published in the journal Oncotarget.
