Rogue Cancer Gene Discover

They have found that by blocking this gene, a naturally occurring protein in the body that prevents the spread of cancer cells is boosted and the cancer cells remain dormant.

The British researchers have discovered there is a gene which helps to spread cancer. By isolating it we now have yet another method of creating less invasive therapies for the treatment of cancer. The more we discover the faster we shall rid ourselves of this scourge.¬† At this stage the researchers are looking at something which will actually destroy that gene so it cannot spread cancer. Here’s hoping.
