Just found this article interesting so thought id share it.




"Using a high-throughput cell-based screen to assess the effects of avocatin B on human leukemia stem cells, the researchers found the compound selectively targets and destroys them while leaving healthy blood cells unscathed."


They mention AML in the article, but i wonder if it would have simular capabilities in CML.

A bit more -  http://www.ncbi.nlm....pubmed/26077472



PDF of the study



Lots of natural substances can inhibit disease. I did not see any mention of CML in any of the research.
