Sažetak

Unfortunately, we are all witness to a dramatic failure in new, effective and possibly non-toxic therapies against major diseases. In fact, the diseases that were incurable seven decades ago remain incurable today, excluding of course infectious diseases. Cancer, as well as neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s) and autoimmune diseases (including Systemicus lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and scleroderma), all suffer from poorly effective and often extremely toxic therapies. However, while many of these diseases can be controlled as chronic diseases, cancer is becoming a sort of nightmare rather than a disease. This is for two main reasons: first, because the standard therapy did not show to be effective, largely under the expectancy, while extremely toxic and often destroying the patient’s body rather than helping it in defeating the disease.
