Modified ecstasy could 'kill blood cancer'

Modified ecstasy or MDMA could one day have a role to play in fighting different blood cancers. Scientists say by chemically re-engineering ecstasy by taking some atoms away and putting new ones in their place, the drug could have less toxic effect on the brain. Not only that but one of the changes has increased cancer-fighting effectiveness 100 times more than the normal ecstasy. Meaning that if 100g of un-modified ecstasy was needed to get the desired effect, only 1g of the modified ecstasy would be needed to have the same effect.

Scientists & researchers say that this treatment may not be available for 10 years, since most of the testing has been in a tube so far. Time to bring in the rolling monkeys!
