Pancreatic cancer is one of the most feared and deadliest forms of cancer.
Eighty percent of patients die in less than a year. Only 8% make it five years.
It’s what took the lives of Aretha Franklin, Steve Jobs, Patrick Swayze, Luciano Pavarotti, and Joan Crawford.
And the threat keeps growing… By the end of 2020, pancreatic cancer is projected to be second only to lung cancer as the leading cause of cancer death.
But a new Harvard study brings hope.[i]
It tested a cannabis extract called FBL-O3G on mice.
Researchers tested FBL-O3G in two ways:
- They applied it to pancreatic cancer cells in a petri dish.
- They injected it directly into the metastasized pancreatic tumors of mice.
Dr. Wilfred Ngwa was the study co-author. He said he and his colleagues were “very surprised” by the results. Not only did the treatment inhibit tumor growth, it “inhibited tumor progression in other parts of the body.”[ii]
The research team ran additional tests and confirmed this result.
The FBL-O3G treatment completely eliminated tumors in 70% of the mice.
Findings on the petri dish cell lines suggested that FBL-O3G was “more effective in killing pancreatic cells” than radiation therapy.
Dr. Ngwa and his team theorize that the cannabis extract can create “antigen cells that train the T cells (white blood cells), like a vaccine” to recognize cancer.
That’s hugely significant because pancreatic cancer isn’t usually discovered until it has spread. If successfully translated to medical use, this “will have a major impact in treatment of pancreatic cancer,” said Dr. Ngwa.[iii]
Researchers are planning more extensive testing of FBL-O3G and eventually human trials. We’ll keep you updated on the results.
