Cancer Drug Destroys Tumours In Pre-clinical Trials

EBC-46 is a compound extracted from the fruit of the Blushwood tree (Fontainea picrosperma) found in north Queensland rainforests.

“In most cases the single injection treatment caused the loss of viability of cancer cells within four hours, and ultimately destroyed the tumours.”

The drug EBC-46 led to rapid breakdown of tumours in a range of human tumour models
