An Israeli biotech company said preliminary research on mice gives it hope of developing a cancer cure "within a year's time" - but it still has years of testing ahead of it before it could get US approval - even if it works for humans.

He added to MailOnline: "The Israeli scientists" reports of a "universal cancer cure" have not been substantiated through publications in peer-reviewed articles, nor have they been demonstrated in human clinical trials, and their claims should be met with extreme skepticism'.

Question: Can you explain what this treatment is and how it works?

However, the claims, made by Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd in Israel, have now been shot down by experts in cancer care and treatment. Now the scientists who came up with this say that cancer cells are killed off using a multiprong approach - which is a combination of cancer-targeting peptides and a strong toxin. "Next, a series of tests in people is begun to determine whether the drug is safe when used to treat a disease and whether it provides a real health benefit", FDA says on its site. Morad also said because the peptide parts of MuTaTo are tiny and flexible, they can penetrate areas other drugs fail to reach.

This certainly does sound encouraging. The researchers are predicting that a patient could potentially complete their treatment after only a few weeks.

The company, Tris Pharma says that the medicine is sold at Walmart , CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar Stores nationwide. Tris Pharma is now expanding the recall by adding three more lots, which are currently sold at just CVS and Walmart.

The team said the treatment will eventually be personalized, and patients would receive a specific molecule cocktail needed for an effective treatment.

Question: Let's look at some facts, how likely is this "cure" to become reality? Aridor concluded, "Our results are consistent and repeatable". This is a good first step.

'At the same time, we must always offer a note of caution that the process to get this treatment from mouse to man is not always a simple and uncomplicated journey'. And not just a cure for certain forms of cancer, but a complete cure for the deadly disease. So I'm not so sure how they might have a cure-all for cancer by this time next year.

In 2018, the International Agency for Research on Cancer estimated there were 17 million new cancer cases and 9.5 million cancer deaths worldwide.
