Mýs: "A single shot of CBLB502 at less than 1% of the maximum dose, 87% of
mice managed to survive an otherwise lethal 13 Gray of radiation. The
drug completely outclassed all known protective chemicals." Even the maximum possible dose of the second-best chemical - amifostine - only saved 54% of the irradiated mice.
The celebrations would be short-lived however, if the drug defended
tumour cells in a similar way. Fortunately, that wasn't the case and
the tumours in protected mice succumbed to the radiotherapy as per
usual. If anything, the addition of CBLB502 killed slightly more cancer
cells than usual, which may be due to small immune boosts triggered by
the compound's resemblance to flagellin.
