How can scorpion venom be used medicinally
FAU doctors discover scorpion poison for cancer therapy
Researchers at the University Hospital of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have now examined a therapeutic agent that is widely used in traditional Chinese medicine - scorpion poison - and used it in the treatment of particularly insidious brain tumors, with surprising results Results.
Extracts from the poison of the Chinese golden scorpion (Mesobuthus martensii) are considered in the Chinese art of medicine to be effective against neurological ailments such as chronic pain, paralysis, strokes or epilepsy. Doctors at FAU, together with Chinese microbiologists, were able to use this poison to identify two new active ingredients that can be used to stop brain tumors, known as gliomas, that were previously difficult to treat.
The team around the neuroscientist PD Dr. Nicolai Savaskan was able to show that the two substances with the cryptic names CA4 and CTX-23 prevent brain tumors from rapid cell division and block their vascularization. "The two scorpion venom derivatives that we have found are a good example of a fruitful connection between traditional Chinese medicine and conventional medicine - and promising therapeutics for our patients."
The scientists now have the results of their study in the specialist journal Scientific Reports released.
