Apple Balla reports that Wired reports that scientists report that:
Washington, July 7 (IANS) In what can alter the course of cancer treatment in the near future, researchers have found a compound that appears to pinpoint all of the malignant cells in a patient's body.
The twist is that the compound's main ingredient is a molecule that is found in the sting of a deadly scorpion.
The compound called chlorotoxin is found in the venom of the death stalker scorpion known as leiurus quinquestriatus.
Is it true that a venom from this scorpion can help to identify cancer cells?
