A group of Israeli scientists say a cure for cancer is within reach, even optimistic predicting it will be found within a year.
But at least one expert in the US has questioned the legitimacy of the potential cure and said it was more likely just another claim on a list of "irresponsible and ultimately cruel false promises" for cancer patients.

Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi) has described its treatment MuTaTo, comparable to a cancer antibiotic that uses a multi-step approach that resembles the treatment of HIV patients. The Israeli team told the Jerusalem Post that this treatment is based on a combination of multiple peptides for each cancer cell, and allegedly excludes the possibility of mutation evasion.
"More likely, this claim is yet another set of false, irresponsible, and ultimately cruel false promises for cancer patients."
"We believe that in one year we will provide a complete cure for cancer," said Dan Aridor of AEBi News Agency.

The boss of the company, Dr. med. Ilan Morad said that MuTaTo is also working to combat cancer stem cells, eliminating the likelihood of recurrence from "Day 1
"Our solution will be both general and personal," said Aridor.
But Dr. Ben Neel, Director of the Perlmutter Cancer Center a NYU Langone Health is skeptical and tells Fox News via e-mail: "Of course, the cure for cancer is the goal of anyone who comes to work every day in a cancer center – and if this company actually Cancer heals, they will do it congratulations and thanks cancer is, however, a multitude of diseases, and it is highly unlikely that this company has found a "cure" for cancer, any more than there is a single cure for infection.

Treatment has not been tested on humans, although Aridor said it has been proven in mice and is nearing the stage of clinical trials.
Neel said, "This claim is likely to be another in a long line of fake, irresponsible, and ultimately cruel false promises for cancer patients."
