Student in Nigeria, Sandra Musujusu, develops cure for breast cancer

A female student of the African University of Science and Technology, Abuja, Sandra Musujusu, has developed an alternative treatment for breast cancer.

The scientific breakthrough might lead to a lasting solution in the treatment of breast cancer prevalent among women world over.

This was made known on Tuesday in Abuja when the World Bank Education Director, Dr Jaime Saavedra Chanduvi with his team visited the University as part of his assessment tour of the 10 African Centres of Excellence (ACE) centres.

The World Bank has committed about $10 billion for the ACE project in Nigeria, as part of efforts to encourage conduct of cutting-edge research and specialisation of the beneficiaries institutions in specific development problems faced in Nigeria and indeed the African continent.

AUST is hosting one of the Centres of Excellence, known as Pan African Material Institute (PAMI), with research focus electrical power, disease detection and treatment.

Musujusu’s research, using macromolecular science is aimed at developing bio-degradable polymer material which could be used as alternative for the treatment of breast cancer in the near future.

She revealed that her research focuses on triple negative breast cancer which is the aggressive sub-type of breast cancer that is common with women from African ancestry.

Musujusu, a Sierra-Leonian national is conducting the research under the sponsorship of the Pan African Materials Institute (PAMI).

Out of 19 African Centres of Excellence, 10 Nigerian tertiary institutions won slots to churn out special research works that could compete effectively with global standards.

The ACE universities include Redeemers University, Mowe; Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria; University of Jos, Jos; University of Benin and African University of Science and Technology, Abuja.

Others are University of Port-Harcourt; Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife; Bayero University, Kano; Benue State University, Makurdi; and Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.

It would be recalled that when the Ebola Virus Disease broke out in Nigeria in the year 2014, one of the ACE centres, Redeemers University served as the testing site before it was brought under control.

Musujusu said, “My research is actually centred on the development of bio-degradable polymers for treatment of breast cancer.”

“I will be focusing on triple negative breast cancer which is actually the aggressive sub-type of breast cancer that is common with women from African ancestry.”

“I believe there is a bright future for Africa, and as a woman there is much more we can do if we are empowered. This award given to me by PAMI has empowered me to face my studies with more confidence and actually contribute to the frontier of knowledge and move Africa forward.

Yes, Arlene, I'm sure this is true.  But there are enough of us that, if we are sufficiently well informed, we can release the hold that Big Pharma currently has. 

Thousands of people have been cleared of cancer and other deadly diseases using Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT), which I wrote about in Success Strategies for Black People.  But I think prevention is the best way forward. 

There is a strong link between mental/emotional states and cancer and other illnesses. If you would like to read about my journey as a cancer survivor, check out my Cancer Journals blogs

My advice to the lady who's developed this cure is to be careful. Doctors are being killed who deviate from the Big Pharma agenda. Sixty three already in the USA have been killed with the authorities calling is suicide. Dr. Simoncini in Rome, Italy developed a cure for breast cancer in which he injects vitamin C directly into the tumor; it cures in 5 days doing this. He was arrested and in prison. Fortunately he's out now. There is much more that I could write, but will close.

Peace,
