Researchers led by David Litchfield of The University of Western Ontario found that the biochemical pathways in the cells are rewired, allowing them to ignore the therapy and continue to grow and spread.

"This work focused on understanding how cancer cells acquire a selective survival advantage, allowing them to avoid apoptosis, the chemically-induced cell death", Litchfield wrote in the report which has been published in the journal Science Signaling.

This research has been plagiarized/blacklisted by Ministry Health Canada to cover up research fraud at U of Waterloo. Cell Death Signal Gene theory was peer reviewed by M.D.Anderson Cancer Center but suppressed to obstruct justice.I explained it to Dr Kennedy of Western, plus Peter Godsoe of Scotia bank associated with UWO plus others.It may treat BREAST cancer as explained to Pres.Obama on www.cancerfraudbadbiotecch.com.Please email him using White House email to lay fraud charges if you want to end cancer.Thank you.E.A.Greenhalgh
