Scientists Greatly Simplify Model of how cancer Starts
Researchers in the University of Warwick’s Molecular Medicine Research Centre have undermined the old complex model of how many cancers start and identified a single protein known as c-Myc as a “mission-critical target for effective cancer therapies.”
Current cancer models suggest that a network of several cell mutations is needed to begin a cancer such a complex origin makes it difficult to find simple causes or easy targets that can be tackled. Treatment of developed cancers often have thus to be aggressive therapies to destroy the cancerwith high risks of damage to healthy tissue.
But new work by Dr. Stella Pelengaris, and Dr Mike Khan at the University of Warwick’s Molecular Medicine Research Centre has undermined the old complex model of how a cancer start and identified a single protein known as c-Myc as a “mission-critical target for effective cancer therapies.”
