 Scientists Now Able to Cancer Cells Under Normal Control

Scientists have brought cancer cells back under normal control by reactivating their cancer suppressor genes.

A common cause of cancer is when cells are altered or mutated and the body's tumour suppressor genes are switched off.

Cinzia Allegrucci from the School of Veterinary Science and Medicine and Andrew Johnson in the Centre for Genetics and Genomics reactivated tumour suppressor genes and stopped the cancer from growing by treating them with Axolotl oocyte extract.

After 60 days there was still no evidence of cancerous growth.

The finding was published today in the Journal Molecular Cancer.
