Sadly, their claims were shot down by fellow scientists. In recent articles in Israel and the United States, Ac- celerated Evolution Biotech- nologies Ltd or AEBi, which was founded in 2000 from the ITEK Weizmann technology incubator, announced that a new treatment being devel- oped by the company would offer a complete cure for cancer with "no or minimal side-effects at a much lower cost than most other treat- ments on the market." The treatment, according to Dan Aridor, chairman of the board of AEBi, and CEO Dr. Ilan Morad--which they call MuTaTo, or multi-target toxin--works essentially like a cancer antibiotic, they told the Jerusalem Post. They said the results of pre-clinical tri- als have been very good. But fellow scientists quickly rejected the claims, calling them "spurious," "highly irre- sponsible," "unsubstantiated" and even "cruel." CEO and founder of the startup Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. Ilan Morad (r), with Hanan Itzhaki, the chief science officer, at their lab. The skeptical scientists note that the research group has not published any find- ings to back up their claims, as is traditional in the science community. Morad told The Times of Israel earlier this week that it has not published its research in medical journals because it "can't afford" to do so. But reputable scientific journals, that are peer re- viewed and highly respected, do not charge to publish serious scientific research, though the process can be rigorous. Writing in Forbes, Victoria Forster, a cancer researcher and child cancer survivor, called AEBI less than forth- coming with information about their alleged cure.

Starting Feb. 1, the organi- zations began joint operations in key business areas under the executive leadership of Keith Dvorchik, CEO of The Roth Family JCC, who will serve concurrently as JFGO's executive director. The boards of directors of both organizations approved the terms of the alliance's shared business services in January. In January 2018, the JFed Task Force was created, con- sisting of board members from each organization, at-large community members and senior staff, and was chaired by Dick Al~pelbaum, who is in the unique position of having served as president of both organizations. Federation on page 14A Julian Edelman By JTA staff (JTA)--Wide receiver Ju- lian Edelman was named Most Valuable Player as the New England Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta. The Patriots' Jewish owner, Robert Kraft, also earned a kiss on the lips from quarter- back Tom Brady as their team celebrated its 13-3 victory-- New England's sixth Super Bowl triumph. After the game, an inter- viewer asked Edelman how he felt about earning the MVP award. "It sounds crazy, it sounds crazy. 2018. L'Chaim!" he said. Edelman provided some of the rare offensive highlights in a torpid defensive game with a game-high 10 catches for 141 yards. Eight of those receptions led to first-downs, keeping the ball out of the hands of the Rams' potent young quarterback, Jared Goff. Edelman, 32, is one of only a few Jewish players in the league, embracing that side of his identity over time. He has a Jewish father but was not raised in the religion, and the Patriots front office often would defer on questions about his religion. His is the quintessential surprise story: Undersized at 5-10 and less than 200 pounds, without blazing speed and MVP on page 15A 6 II]1!!!!!11! l! !UI Ills 4
