Reiter, a professor of urology and researcher at UCLA's Jonsson Cancer Center and the study's senior author it tells the cancer that it is time to die. The detailed report of the study is to be published in tomorrow's issue of Cancer Research, a peer- reviewed journal published by the American Association for Cancer Research.
