 Extract from White Bloom can Increase Efficiency of Anti-cancer Drugs
The efficiency of anti-cancer drugs can be boosted one million times with the help of an extract from white bloom, scientists have revealed.

According to experts working for Leukaemia Busters, molecules from Gypsophila Paniculata - commonly known as Baby's Breath - appeared in trials to break down the membrane of deadly cancer cells.

This makes it far easier for antibody-based drugs to attack the cancer itself, reports The Sun.

The Southampton-based charity was set up by Dr David Flavell and his wife Bee.

Dr Flavell said yesterday: "This could truly revolutionise the way these antibody-based drugs work and it will save lives. And there is a really big possibility this can be used for many cancers."

Scientists are now preparing for clinical trials.
