  • TNI BioTech Inc. (TNIB) And Developments In The Fight Against Cancer 1 comment
    Oct 4, 2012 2:30 PM

    Although the disease of cancer in various forms has been known for thousands of years, at least since ancient Egypt, it wasn't until the 20th century that a meaningful understanding, and associated treatments, began to emerge. The development of chemotherapy in the second half of the 20th century is considered one of the most significant accomplishments in medical history, and has led to cures for some previously fatal cancers. Radiation therapy has been applied to cancer since the discovery of x-rays in 1895, though, as with chemotherapy, treatments are far different from early applications, and far more successful in killing cancer cells while minimizing damage to healthy cells.

    But chemotherapy and radiation therapy, the two pillars of modern cancer treatment, still involve damage to healthy cells and related side effects. As sophisticated and successful as these treatment protocols have become, they still represent something of a sledgehammer approach, introducing a wave of toxicity to part or all of the body which, in spite of skillful fine-tuning, usually requires some degree of tradeoff. The more potent the treatments become in killing cancer cells, often the greater the risk to normal cells. The long-time goal of cancer hunters has been to develop a way to accurately pinpoint and destroy the cancer cells without touching anything else. It's a simple notion, but one that has proven elusive.

    Immunotherapy is focused on exactly that goal, and represents a fundamentally different way of treating cancer, avoiding the necessity and problems associated with traditional treatments. The immune system is diverse, consisting of three major biological functions:

    • Immune defense, which works against infectious organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites

    • Immune homeostasis, which works to remove senescent cells and debris

    • Immune surveillance, which clears mutated cells or cancer cells.

    One of the most significant medical developments in the past twenty years is the discovery "cytokines," small proteins or polypeptides that help regulate the body's response to disease or other disorder. One major group includes the enkephalins, such as methionine met-enkephalin (MENK) and endorphins that regulate not only the cells of the immune system but also those of the endocrine system, keeping the two in balance. These cytokines have been found to be useful in stimulating the immune system and in treating viral infections such as HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, and numerous types of cancers.

    TNI Biotech has published articles proving that MENK plays a very important role in immune restoration in cancer patients or cancer patients after chemotherapy without side effects. MENK has shown more advantages in boosting the human immune system than either interferon or interleukin-2, especially noting that MENK inhibits Treg cells while interferon or interleukin-2 did not, which is a unique discovery of TNIB and supports the company's major strategy to combat cancer with MENK.
