A silver-based compound that could stop cancer from spreading

post-image
New research indicates that a silver- based compound is able to tackle the energy centre (the mitochondria) of cancer cells, preventing them from growing and spreading. The compound still needs to go to extensive clinical trials before it can become available as a chemotherapeutic agent. However the findings pave the way for a new chemotherapeutic drug that could be more effective and less toxic, with fewer side effects. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/novel-silver-compounds-offer-a-potential-cancer-treatment-breakthrough?
