New Treatment for Hereditary Cancer Patients

A new prevention treatment has been identified for patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) in the colon. They are at 100 percent risk of developing colorectal cancer if proper medical care is not given, reveals a new study. The findings of this study were taken a step further. The results show that the treatment has led to a near-complete blockade of cancer growth pathways in polyps that were isolated from FAP patients.
