New Discovery for Treatment and Prevention of Bone Tumors
One in every 50,000 people is affected with multiple hereditary exostoses (MHE). MHE is a rare genetic disease characterized by multiple bone tumors, affecting children during their growing years. Very limited treatment options and the age group that is affected emphasize the need to develop effective therapeutic strategies in treating the disease. A study conducted at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, USA, was successful in discovering the underlying mechanism of disease manifestation and also provide a potential therapy to treat MHE.
