- CHEMOTHERAPHY FOR MANY YEARS NOW AS USED BY HOSPITALS, PRIVATE CLINICS & INSTITUTIONS GLOBALLY HAS
BEEN ADMINISTERED TO PATIENTS WORLDWIDE TO COMBAT CANCER.
ASK ANY SCIENTIST, DOCTOR OR SURGEON TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS TREATMENT AND THE CAUSES OF THE SIDE EFFECTS RELATED TO THE TREATMENT AS WELL AS THE ACTUAL STATISTICS OF THE SUCCESS AND FAILURE RATIO.
IN MANY CASES THE PATIENT DIES WITHOUT ANY MARKED SUCCESS AGAINST THE CANCER WHATEVER. OF COURSE NO PERSON CAN BE SUED OVER THIS AS THE DOCTORS AFTER ALL ARE TRYING TO SAVE LIVES BY USING THIS TREATMENT, WHICH, PRODUCES SUCH DEADLY RESULTS IN SO MANY PATIENTS, SO TREATED.
- Rozina Ali, a plastic surgeon,
explains that anti-microbial peptides are
small proteins - lots of amino acids put
together in various configurations. The interesting
thing about them to medics is that they are anti-microbial
which means that they work against microbes and microbes
means bacteria, fungi and viruses. She says:
"As far as we know so far there aren't any
organisms which have any resistance to these anti-microbial
peptides. It's something that is going to be important
to the future of medicine."
- Australian Salt Water Crocodiles contain an innate immune system
as the first line of defence that kicks in as soon
as an organism faces any threat - a puncture of the
skin, bacteria in the stomach, something nasty in
the lungs. Besides cells, such as macrophages and
neutrophils, gobbling up bacteria in this
first line of defence, these anti
microbial peptides bash holes in the bacteria's membrane,
which weaken it to the point that it instantly
- The Great White Shark has been around keeping our seas clean for over 250 million years. They are one of the most successful oceanic predators in existence eating rotting carcasses, scraps and killing other sea creatures to survive.
For many decades now it has been commonly accepted by lay people and scientists alike and especially so by the Asian world (whose civilizations go back over 9,000 years) that the cartilage of these species has magical powers and endows the person taking the cartilage with an impregnated immunity from various ill health conditions. The trade in this cartilage still flourishes abundantly globally. Testing on the Great White Shark has revealed some unique startling facts concerning conditions which man and scientist is still struggling to solve in this present age. For instance when these species have (in tests) been injected with Cancer and HIV cells the species have rejected the contaminated cells from entering the bloods molecular infrastructure by virtue of their innate immune system protection that they have built over 250 million years.
is a unique anti-microbial peptide
compound of amino acids, which have the properties
necessary to fight bacteria without damaging normal
cells. Until now, the reasons why Australian Salt Water Crocodiles
and Great White Sharks avoided wound infection were unknown.
- On May 31st, 2000, a documentary aired on BBC
entitled The Secret Life of Crocodiles, which
was the origin for the discovery of a unique
anti-microbial peptide in crocodiles.
Jill Fullerton-Smith, a senior producer in the Science
Department at BBC, decided to investigate, however,
she couldn't find any scientists in the world working
on the immune response of the crocodile and was on
the verge of abandoning the idea. She then saw a newspaper
article about a biologist who noticed that a frog
in his lab has lost a limb and yet within in few days
had healed. The biologist now owned a multi-million
dollar research company developing the antibiotic
they had found in the frog. Jill rang him, and on
his advice decided to hire an American microbiologist
to look for a particular particle in the blood
of the crocodile. Nobody had ever looked
for these peptides in the reptile before. Michael
Mosley, Executive Producer of Living Proof, agreed
to fund a film following the collection of the blood
from wild Australian crocodiles and the search for
the peptide. An amazing new anti-microbial
peptide was discovered in the blood, and
the BBC and the university are lodging patent rights.
Greg Dyke personally announced the discovery to the
- This quote from BBC Director-General Greg
Dyke describes the manner in which a unique
anti-microbial peptide was
discovered: "Tonight I can reveal that Living
Proof, our science documentary on BBC ONE, has done
something very unusual: they've actually helped find
and isolate a protein which kills resistant bacteria
and which could form the basis of a new antibiotic.
On a trip to film salt-water crocodiles in Australia,
our producer noticed something that surprised her;
despite the horrendous injuries the crocs inflict
on each other, their wounds rarely get infected. She
discussed this with a young croc expert who agreed
that it would be interesting to try and find out why.
So they set off together to collect blood samples
from wild crocodiles. After many adventures they got
their blood samples and last week a leading research
institute isolated, from these samples, what I'm told
is a novel anti microbial peptide. In tests this substance
kills strains of virulent bacteria that are resistant
to all standard antibiotics."
- This quote from Dr. James Perran Ross, a croc researcher
at the Florida Museum of Natural History, describes
the commonplace occurrence of crocodiles surviving
traumatic injuries stemming from a unique
anti-microbial peptide:"They can sustain the most frightful injuries.
In territorial fights they commonly tear each other's
legs off. They go away and sulk for a while and seem
to heal up. You often find animals in the wild with
missing limbs, missing tails -- what must have been
very serious injuries. I found one in the wild with
the whole of its lower jaw torn off, all healed up
and swimming around. It was a bit skinny but had obviously
survived that very traumatic event. So I think their
inherent toughness is one aspect. They are also long-lived.
They routinely live for decades."
- This statement from Animal Planet.com
explains in real simple detail exactly why
crocodiles don't suffer from infections:
Surprisingly, very few crocodiles seem to suffer from
infections. We recently discovered the secret behind
their remarkable ability - an anti-microbial
peptide in their blood. Crocodiles
have one of the most efficient immune systems of any
animal we know, which is a real advantage
for them living in bacteria-filled
water and mud. Wounds are common from fights or injuries
from prey, and being able to fight off potential
infection is clearly very important. The
only time crocodiles suffer from infections is when
they become stressed as their health declines. This
affects their immune system and they can suddenly
become susceptible to common bacteria they would normally
shrug off. This can be seen in captive crocodiles
kept in poor conditions, or wild subordinate or injured
crocodiles unable to secure a territory and enough
food to survive.
This bacterial photosynthetic reaction center was the first membrane protein to have its structure determined. The purple spirals (alpha helices) show where the protein crosses the membrane. In the orientation above, the left part of the molecule protrudes from the outside of the bacterial cell, while the right side is inside the cell.

"Photosynthesis is the most important chemical reaction in the biosphere, as it is the prerequisite for all higher life on Earth," according to the Nobel Foundation, which awarded its 1988 Nobel Prize in chemistry to three researchers who determined the structure of a protein central to photosynthesis.
This protein, from a photosynthetic bacterium rather than from a plant, was the first X-ray crystallographic structure of a protein embedded in a membrane. The achievement was remarkable, because it is very difficult to dissolve membrane-bound proteins in water—an essential step in the crystallization process.
To borrow further from the Nobel Foundation: "[This] structural determination…has considerable chemical importance far beyond the field of photosynthesis. Many central biological functions in addition to photosynthesis…are associated with membrane-bound proteins. Examples are transport of chemical substances between cells, hormone action, and nerve impulses"—in other words, signal transduction
