The Future of Cancer treatment

Scientists discovered it can be stopped by using Micro RNA's

Scientists have recently found a way to deliver Micro RNA's to cancer cells, which will stop the over production of cells in cancer patients. "We should be able to re-establish the brakes and restore normal cell function," says Professor Panos Anastasiadis, of the Department for Cancer Biology. With the hope of this treatment on the horizon of medical science, it will soon play a big role in future cancer treatment.

How Genetic Testing Will Play a Role in the Fight Against Cancer

Currently scientists are working to identify commonly inherited genetic variations, that can be associated with breast, and prostate cancer, as well as other types of cancer. With this information at hand, in the future, it might change the way we prevent, treat, and diagnose this disease. Scientists are also studying inherited cancer risk, in order to improve genetic testing and counseling.
