“To our amazement, when we added this compound of milk, the tumour cells died,” Professor Svanborg said
Could breast milk be the latest treatment for cancer? New evidence says yes; after scientists accidently discover it contains properties that could effectively treat the disease.
Breast milk contains a substance that has been named Hamlet, which has already shown positive results in patients with bladder cancer. It is thought Hamlet will also be effective in treating bowel cancer and cervical cancer.
Professor Catharina Svanborg, who made the discovery, has said it eliminates the cancer cells, without harming the healthy cells– unlike the catastrophic damage caused by chemotherapy which kills all cells.
The immunologist from Lund University in Sweden has said: ‘There’s something magical about Hamlet’s ability to target tumour cells and kill them.’
She continued saying human breast milk contains a protein called alpha-lactalbumin, which transforms into an effective treatment for cancer when in the gut.
Svanborg, made the accidental discovery while working with antibiotics. She said: ‘We were looking for novel antimicrobial agents, and new breast milk is a very good source of these. During one experiment we needed human cells and bacteria to be present, and we chose human tumour cells for practical reasons.
‘To our amazement, when we added this compound of milk, the tumour cells died. It was a totally serendipitous discovery.’
Early clinical studies in patients with bladder cancer have shown participants injected with Hamlet start shedding the dead cells in their urine within days. Full clinical trials are now being planned.
