Korean Scientists Find Way to Suppress Spread of CancerTopics: Medicine
Could the discovery of the gene that suppresses cancer metastasis provide a key to a new concept of cancer treatments? These researchers think so.
Experts say cancer patients have better chances of survival if the spread of cancer cells are controlled. A group of Korean scientists has discovered a mechanism that suppresses the cancer transfer process.
Over 90 percent of cancer patients can survive if the disease is detected early. But once the cancer cells enter the bloodstream and travel to distant organs, a process known as metastasis, the chances of survival drop significantly.
In a breakthrough that can revolutionize cancer treatments, a group of scientists from Seoul National University has found a mechanism that controls the spread of cancer cells.
