    The illicit drug ecstasy could be used to treat blood cancers, Australian research has found.
    Compounds similar to ecstasy or MDMA kill cell lines derived from blood cancers such as lymphoma, myeloma and leukemia, claims Associate Professor Matthew Piggott and Ph.D. students Michael Gandy and Katie Lewis from the university of Western Australia.
    MDMD was modified to eliminate the psycho-activity seen ecstasy and the potency against cancer cell was boosted 100-fold.
