Scientists representing the Thompson Institute located in New York, as part of a scientific project, figured out what new methods can be used to combat hepatitis B. It turned out that the simplest potatoes can help here. The results of this work were published in a specialized publication.
The experiment was conducted on laboratory mice, and showed a positive result. As part of the experiments, experts introduced a special gene into the potato tuber DNA that encoded a protein taken from the liver of subjects with hepatitis patients. After this, the root crop was given to mice as food. Surprisingly, the animal body quickly began to produce antibodies that effectively fought against hepatitis B.
According to the data, the new method is much more effective than all previously known, and with the help of it there is hope to achieve complete healing from a dangerous disease. Specialists are still at the initial stage of developing a new drug, but now they have already achieved a major breakthrough in the treatment of the disease.
Currently, specialists continue to study the new method, and probably in the near future effective new-generation drugs will be available to all patients.
