Brazilian Wasp Venom May Help Battle Cancer

 

The venom from the Brazilian wasp "Polybia paulista" has been found to contain a toxin that selectively kills cancer cells.

MP1, the active peptide in the venom, suppressed the growth of prostate, bladder as well as drug-restistant leukaemia cells.

"Cancer therapies that attack the lipid composition of the cell membrane would be an entirely new class of anticancer drugs," says Paul Beales, a Professor at the University of Leeds.
