Several days ago, a study was published in the journal “Cell”, discussing a new treatment that has had some remarkable field tests. Despite the fact that this method is incredibly young, it is clear that there is something to it that may hold the key to healing cancer all over the world. Here’s a caption that sums it up quite well:
Researchers found that restoring normal levels of a human colorectal cancer gene in mice stopped tumor growth and re-established normal intestinal function within only 4 days. Remarkably, tumors were eliminated within 2 weeks, and signs of cancer were prevented months later. The findings provide proof of principle that restoring the function of a single tumor suppressor gene can cause tumor regression and suggest future avenues for developing effective cancer treatments.
Currently, this study was done on a specific cancer in the colon called Colorectal Cancer. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in developed countries, accounting for nearly 700,000 deaths worldwide each year.
