Unlike normal cells, cancer cells can grow and age without dying -- one of the reasons they're so dangerous. But researchers have developed a way to help cancer cells age and die, which could lead to treatment that slows or stops tumor growth.
Unlike normal cells, cancer cells can grow and age without dying -- one of the reasons they're so dangerous. But researchers at Washington State University have developed a way to help cancer cells age and die, which could lead to treatment that slows or stops tumor growth.
The research, by Weihang Chai of the Washington State University School of Molecular Biosciences and colleagues, was reported in the current issue of The EMBO Journal. It was funded in part by the National Institutes of Health and the American Cancer Society. I spoke with Chai this week.
How do cancer cells differ from normal cells in terms of their mortality?
The big difference between cancer cells and normal cells is that cancer cells can divide forever and live forever. We call this immortality. The normal cells will divide for a number of divisions and then stop growing. They get old and either they die or they sit there and do nothing. They are mortal.
Cancer cells have a way to maintain their telomeres. Their telomeres don't get shortened. Each time the normal cells divide they lose some telomere DNA sequences. Eventually when the telomere DNA becomes too short, they stop growing. There are also other factors contributing to the mortality of normal cells.
Is the immortality of cancer cells what makes them so dangerous?
The cancer cells divide uncontrollably. Then you have more and more cancer cells in one location of your body that can invade the surrounding tissues and disrupt the function of the normal tissues. They form the tumor. The cancer cells also can circulate around your body and get into other places and form tumors in the new locations. This is in part due to the immortality of cancer cells. They don't die. Normal cells grow at one location and at some point they will stop.
Talk about your work on making cancer cells "more mortal."
The majority of the cancer cells, about 90 percent, they activate a molecule called telomerase. Telomerase is usually not activated in normal cells, except for in stem cells. In cancer cells, the telomerase is active. The function of telomerase is to add telomere DNA at the short telomeres. That's why cancer cells don't lose their telomeres. In the normal cells telomerase is off, so there is no way to maintain their telomere length. [This would suggest that] if you kill the telomerase in cancer cells, the telomere [would gradually shorten] and the cancer cells will die.
However, recently we have found that the telomerase extends just one strand of DNA. The other strand should be synthesized by other molecules, other proteins. We found the molecule that's responsible for synthesizing the other strand. If you block the function of this molecule, then the telomere cannot be maintained properly, so the cell also just stops growing.
We're just at this stage now. We don't know how this whole thing works. We're working on that and hopefully in the future we can design a way to target this process, not directly target telomerase but target the synthesis of the other strand. That's another way of stopping the cancer cell's growth.
What's the next step to move this research forward?
The next step will be to find out how this whole thing is regulated. We'd like to know whether in normal cells the synthesis of the other strand also occurs because you want to specifically target the cancer cells. If this does exist, [we want to know] whether the same process is regulated by different pathways in normal cells compared to cancer cells. Our ultimate goal is to see if there are any specific targets we can inhibit in the cancer cells.
Could this eventually become a treatment for people with cancer?
We hope so. It's going to be a long way. That probably will involve some other research groups, not just our group.

My mom has lung CA stage 4 terminal in 2011. She was given oral chemo (iressa) and her CA is now controlled. We pushed her body more into the limit, after researching further we found Ozone. We researched how to go about it, by simply doing it at home with a simple ozonator, we saw dramatic results, her CA got even controlled. We saw from ct scans that most of her tumors are decaying, which Iressa is not associated with. Her doctor is surprised, he doesn't know that we use ozone as alternative and supplement with her iressa. At some point also in the past when we first used iressa, the CA is trying to resist the chemo - there are months when we saw in CT Scan that the CA grows and months that gets smaller but not consistent. After combining Ozonated Water with her Iressa - CA and tumors just keeps getting smaller and smaller. We only give her 1 glass of Ozonated water a night before bed, I can imagine the results could be better if it would have been 2 glasses a day. We are now in her 2nd year and hopefully all will be worth the effort...
Difference between Tumor Cells and Normal Cells. Contact inhibition is the natural process of arresting cell growth when two or more cells come into contact with each other. Contact inhibition controls cell growth by allowing cells to replicate as old cells die but keeps unnecessary tissues from forming in their place. Normal cells have their own identity and obey the rule of contact inhibition. Normal cells adhere to each other and expire at the end of their life cycles. Tumor cells typically lose these properties and thus grow in an uncontrolled manner even when in contact with neighboring cells. Tumor cells do not follow the rules of contact inhibition, adherence and self-destruction (apoptosis, programmed cell death). Usually, tumor cells contain faulty DNA and chromosomes (some chromosomes may be duplicated or deleted). Tumor cells spread through the body via the lymphatic and circulatory systems. Clearly, tumor cells evade the immune system (tumor cells can trick the immune system). Unlike normal cells that are specialized, tumor cells are non-specialized and do not contribute to the functioning of a body part. Normal cells have specialized behaviors and serve a purpose. Tumor cells have lost their specialized function. The first tumor cells (in the human body) are not very malignant cells; subsequent (mature) tumor cells are extremely malignant cells. Ordinarily, old normal cells undergo apoptosis, a series of enzymatic reaction that lead to the death of the cell. Normal cells will self-destruct if genetic / chromosomal abnormalities are found. Tumor cells fail to undergo apoptosis. Normal cells divide about 50 times and then stop dividing and die. Tumor cells can enter the cell cycle repeatedly, and in this way, they are potentially immortal. According to the Ferromagnetic Theory of Cancer / Carcinogenesis / Oncogenesis / Tumorigenesis (Iron Conception), any tumor cells are cells with numerous intracellular superpara-, ferri- and ferromagnetic nanoparticles. Any normal cells are cells with non-numerous intracellular superpara-, ferri- and ferromagnetic nanoparticles. Any cancer and ALS work by these nanoparticles. Tumor cells (cells with these nanoparticles; excessively negatively charged cells) do not follow the rules of contact inhibition and adherence. Enzyme activity can be affected by these nanoparticles (immortality of tumor cells). The immune system does not identify these nanoparticles within cellular organelles (the immune system can???t distinguish between dia-, para-, superpara-, ferri- and ferromagnetic micro- and nano-objects). These nanoparticles can chaotically-anarchically distort DNA and shift chromosomes by local magnetic fields (mistakes in DNA; chromosomal faults; deformed mitoses; non-specialization and ugliness of tumor cells). Oncologists-clinicians must beat cancer (a subtle iron disease) by non-complicated anti-iron methods of The Old Testament http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/opinions/69048/ ; http://www.knowledgerush.com/kr/jsp/db/board.jsp?id=81898 ; http://www.tutuz.com/spontaneous-remission-cancer-als-aids-ferromagnetic-theory/ ; http://www.smartplanet.com/blog/pure-genius/a-new-way-to-kill-cancer-cells/4222 ; Vadim Shapoval
I just remembered that some cells in the human body are incapable of dividing. Most of these cells are incapable of dividing are in your brain so you could not live forever even if you where able to mainpulate the telomeres in cancer cells to benefit your own.
if you could mainpulate those telomeres within cancer cells and somehow use them for our own DNA, could we live longer/forever? Our DNA would no longer be subject to as much degradation, if we had telomeres that replace those sequences that we miss each time our DNA replicates itself. The telomeres that are in a normal cells can only slow the degradation process down, where as cancer cells do not have that problem and are "immortal". Science is so awesome to think about!
I would like to know the signs of cervical cancer. I'm really happy to hear about the new way to kill cancer cells, when is it coming to Africa.
my mom is affected with cancer so pls help her to get cured by suggesting some methods to kill cancer pls.... as we live in an rural area we dint get much ideas....... this help is very much needed from u all if u wanna suggest any methods pls contact 8428782722 (india) or mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
To all who believe in the power of singlet oxygen to reverse your cancer here's the site worth visiting: www.oxegenie.com Hope and pray this will help you!
Very interesting research. A similar undergoing research is anti-angiogenesis. These researches are the ways to go instead of the present method of treatment of cancer. I have gone through chemo and it is not pleasant. I still feel the after effects months after that. Presently, I am using oxygenation and using food deprivation methods to get the cancer under control and prevent relapse. I am more inclined to use ayurvedic methods in particular tumeric. I am looking forward to new methods of cancer treatment and even more interested in cancer prevention. All I can say is nice work. It is people like you Dr Chai which contributes to society. Thank you. I have written a free book on http://ontopofcancer.blogspot.com for anyone interested to read.
Correct flooding the body with oxygen will kill not only cancer cells but all pathogenic microorganisms. This technology is currently used in Germany, Cuba and Brazil to treat cancer patients. All you need is to buy this ozonating machine from Germany online or have it fabricated. Oxygen rich solution or water can be administered intravenously, oral, or dermal. It is cost-effective, safe and not painful. This technology is not approved in the USA because the MAFIA in the US Medical organizations and the Pharmaceutical cartels are afraid that it will destroy their multi-billion racket! Try to search for ozonated water to treat cancer.
your research on cancer cells is concentrated more in the DNA, a scientific approach. The theory is more on the life of the normal cells and the cancer cells. One approach on managing cancer is the "starving the cancer cell approach". It works on a case to case basis. What triggers the growth of cancer cells and what cannot trigger its growth. What medical science cannot determine is the aggressiveness of the growth of the cancer cells commonly described as the "immortality" of its life. The widespread of it in the body supports the theory of immortality. I am not a genius but my experiments led me to believe that there is a cure for cancer or i wont be here writing down and sharing it with this group. It is because the processed medicine produced today through the use of modern technology does not have its effect on the cancer cells that makes cancer cells to spread slowly or rapidly until the person dies. The multiplication of the nodes is one attempt of the last defense of the body (the thymus gland )to fight cancer cells but the invasion of the lymphatic nodes by the cancer cells leads to its conversion as a tumor. What is needed by the body? How do we develop our antibodies. Isnt it through the blood that circulates in the entire human body? Same way the cancer cells are developed. Invasion of the blood by the cancer dna will result to its widespread. Some alternative doctors promote detoxification of the blood but the process and materials used are limited and follows a regimen that is quite expensive. Still cancer patients die depending on the rapid growth of cancer cells. Detoxification cannot create balance in the system. The use of alternative medicine is not recognized because of the unscientific approach and the case studies that resulted to death. The scientific approach would lead to better results and the kind of alternative medicine that would combat the aggressiveness of the growth must be taken into consideration. Potency of the alternative medicine and the capacity of the body to absorb the medicine in a specific period of the treatment will contribute for its healing effect though damaged organs must be taken into consideration. If the body produces all the tumor nodes in the body and where black blisters has already manifested... is there hope? there is still hope... to be healed of cancer. Cleanse the blood, it may take several years, but it works...
Dear Sirs: On 3-17-11 I submitted a comment under this tittle; and I still 'am waiting to be published, that I hope will be soon. Thank you. Member: Tdwimo.
Though this process is complex but it is good to no that base on this research, the cancer cells are been targeted alone. If this works then i believe is a cure, but i cant really say if the cure will be permenent.
gochi juice conquers cancer proven safe and effective. goji is a treasure trove of 4 highly bioactive and unique polyscaccharides (LBP1, LBP2, LBP3, and LBP4) - different and more active than anything science has ever seen before. they are so powerful that i refer to them as the master molecules. synergized together, these master molecules command and control many of the bodys most important biochemical defense systems. they are of great importance to the smooth functioning of virtually every cell in the entire body.
good discover, i guess u some how know how to kill cancer but need further studies to comfirm it does not affect the normal cell. Does ur cancer cell that u mention refer to both NSCLC and SCLC ? How is further study done? Is it by trying it on cancer paitient? I read some book's that a person can depend on just 1 lungs. Is it true? If it is possible , people with lung cancer on one side of the lung , when cancer cell has not spread to other vital organ , what is put to consider on removing the lung?
this is the perfect way of killing cancer cells.cancer cells have maintain their telomars.the DNA seqences lose of normal cells thats the way telomer DNA becomes too short.I think this is the clue point of stoping the develop cancer cells.
this research is on the way of how to kill cancer cell,u r research is perfact way of kills the cancer cells.cancer cells have a way to maintain their telomers.the dna seqences lose of normal cells thats the way telomer dna becomes too short.i think this is the clue point of stoping cancer cells.
has this research progressed. I need my mother to be treated, she suffering from a advanced staged of tumor growing in her abdomen. She has been operated 4 time in last four years and is grown weak and wieghs only 38 Kg. Please help me treat mother. I reside in India, mumbai, my contact mobile number is +91-8080719197, +91-022-25244135..Please help.
i am a br ca survivor. dx with stage 1, NO, MO, invasive lobular carcinoma. i have been reading about telomeres and i admit that i have to understand it more. at this point i am worried that they might make my cancer cells young and active.
Am in love with Dr. Weihang Chai proposed hypothesis; its such a genius idea, and if specific targets are inhibited within cancerous cells only, without affectig normal, then a new dawn and era, with its inhabitants beng cancer free. (But there may be side effects). And i will also advice that cancer researchers investigate more into pharmacologycally active natural plant extracts, that are highly anti-oxidative, anti-inflamatory, have higher levels of Mg ions in its cytosol to...........................................! OK But what's up about UKRAIN! If its very potent why not bring it to the mraket, to our very noses so that we can buy! Anyway i have some ideas in mind about the efficacy of a particular plant extract that have good properties of...........! GOD HELP US ALL!
I think there is more to this idea. Not just how to reverse cancer lifetime but if they van duplicate the strand that keeps cancer alive and incorporates that into our cells. It may be the fountain of youth. Or something to prevent organ death.
I can't believe I've just read someone's comment, that cancer is mother natures way of bringing life to a close, and we should feel lucky that we live longer nowadays to get cancer! Try telling that to the parents of a child with cancer, or to me, diagnosed with advanced bowel cancer at 27, with 3 children under 5. There is no such thing as 'mother nature', cancer is from the devil. I thank God for all these scientists working hard to find cancer treatments and cures, and also for the miraculous and divine healing He does bring through Jesus.
juniaicos. You want to know if accupuncture can cure cancer. It can assist in doing so but first you must know how accupuncture works. How do you see the working there off? do you have an scientific approved answer. In doing research on it your thesis will become usefull if you know what youre up to. If you or anyone else can give an acceptable answer then we can take it from there. Bearing in mind that a docter Stanway in his book on Alternative medicines stated It is fair to say that nobody knows why accupuncture works not even in the east but work it certaily does. I have scientific proof on how and why it works. Waiting for your answer. Greetings Santapiet
I think answer will found when , know why the telomerase not active in normal cell but active in stem cell and what happend to reaching to not activated level in normal cell, not work on knowing the synthesis of the other strand.
one could try transfer factor plus from 4life research which boost the n.k cell activity upto 437% , in other words empowering the immune system early is a sound strategy . one could access the internet by typing 4life transfer facor cancer for an indept understanding . various universities of medicine arealso doing rescearch .
good day. my father has a colon cancer, the infected colon was already removed, (he now wears colostomy bag "as to mention") and the doctors advice is to have him chemotherapy; we only give him fruit and carrot juice because we are unable to send him in the hospital to have chemotherapy that would kill us also because of the amount it costs. what fruit or vegetable can you advice to me is the best for him to slow down the cancer cell growth? thank you very much.
can you help me, my father has a colon cancer; we do give him herbal medicines and fruit juices only, because chemotherapy would kill us also on its cost; we don't have that kind of amount. what fruit or fruit even vegetable juice can you advice to slow cancer cells?
Hey, I just registered so it would accept my comments. Yet, I do not see anything I wrote about 'What If Cannabis Cured Cancer', or 'Fats That Heal; Fats That Kill'. Where did my Vitamin F reference go? I don't think this SmartPlanet thing to be very SMART, and I will maybe unregister quickly.
I created a theory ("Gravitational theory of life") that tries to link the scientific formalism with the way it is generated: by the " life form" in the first place and by "intelligent life form", in the second row. The "Body" is an "order" (non material), in time and space, with a certain support. His material part (which is "seen") is only that support for this "order". Evidence in this regard is that the contact between its material base (of the "order") and the environment(also "material"), a process that obeys the laws of the interaction, of "transformation", the "order" ("form") in time and space of bodies ( interrelationship "function-> relative position" of the processes that constitute them) remains unchanged (within certain limits) despite these contacts. "Gravitational theory of life" trying to solve the problem of generation in space and time and preservation of the resulting geometrical disposition of the bodies, because: 1) in animal cell, the flows of high intensity (mass, ionic) occur before the equilibrium areas, which means "structure". I mean there is a "flow", which initially did rely on "nothing", but nevertheless, it is perfectly oriented in space and time. And FURTHER cellular structure is only a consequence of statistical equilibrium occurring in the contact zone of the routes of these "flows". An attempt to solve this problem did Ilya Prigogine, Belgian scholar of Russian origin,the Nobel laureate. In "Gravitational Theory of Life" is a critical analysis of Prigogine's approaches (as tried and Romanian-born American scientist Adrian Bejan in the 90s in "CONSTRUCTAL" theory ). Constructal Law, issued by Adrian Bejan says: "For a finite-size (flow) system to persist in time (to live), its configuration must evolve such that it provides easier access to the imposed currents that flow through it." The meaning of this formulation is that a fluid, in order to (auto) preserving flow (equivalent for Bejan to "life") should flowing on where is "correct" (in geometrical sense). Why Bejan contradicts Prigogine's theory? For ordinate this flow in space and time, Prigogine suggests that necessary actions must comes from outside the system. But in this case Prigogine had to "build" some poly of entropy (differences in temperature, pressure, etc.) between that occurr the "flow", in the living cell. And this poly does not exist in nature (in most cases the environment around a cell is homogeneous and isotropic). And Bejan, sensing that "forcing" says: "No! The flows must to orient themselves independently, based on this law, which, by his nature, is statistic, "the constructal law". According to the "gravitational theory of life" both are right and, paradoxically, both wrong: a) Prigogine is right: imposing entropic polarizations and ordering the flow, in space and time (flow), by actions which comes from the outside. But if exist such imposition, of material nature, that kind of hypothesis contradicts the independent motion (against any entropic polarization) of the living systems. The fact actually "charged" by Bejan. b) Now: if the "flow" would meet to the "constructal law", the stable flow ( means "life") should be independent but, implicitly, would occur spontaneously: "Life" should have and other sources than "life" itself. What is not found. Solution of "Gravitational Theory of Life" is: "a way of imposing flow must coming from outward, and which must have an informational nature, which overlaps the scalar ( fixed) information from in of the DNA. That mean gravitational and inertial actions plus a "text". In this theory is accepted that the gravitational influences (primarily from the solar system bodies, ordered by relative motion between them, including the Earth) do not have a material nature (until proven otherwise, the experimental discovery of the particle generating the gravitational field, "graviton? and the gravitational wave). For this reason the nature of imposition of the flow in the cell is not causal! 2) In complex body, the nature of parameters which can ordering in space and time these dynamic processes implies the existence of "vectors" which DNA can not contain. Also resulting in an apparent state of structural equilibrium, also, is circumvented the principle of causality in the processes which take place simultaneously. So: the body (at large) is not a consequence of a causally interrelated phenomena! The "order" (stable interrelationship "function->relative position" of the structural parts) shall be preserved permanently (for a healthy body). It follows that, in a sense, the action of an external stimulus, which automatically tends to "spoil" this order, is destroyed in a timely manner. EXAMPLE: variability in time of antibody. A step in deciphering this phenomenon was a development, in 1965, of a model of recombination of genes, so that multiple genes, and not always the same, give rise to a protein chain according to the principle "more gene - one protein " by William Dreyer and Claude Bennett. In fact, not one but an infinite number of variations of the same protein. This model was verified experimentally ( in laboratory conditions) by Susumu Tonegawa, Nobel laureate in 1987. But there are serious reservations regarding its operation under real conditions (in vivo). "Given the slow evolution in time (reflected by latency ?) of these processes, how do you explain that a foreign substance is recognized almost instantaneously, and the body may starts already making the appropriate antibodies ?" - Karen Bulloch - University of San Diego, 1978. Any biological causal chain involves a latency ?, as follows: A biological system, regardless of its complexity, can be defined by a linear operator (S), which acts on some input quantities ui and generate the outputs yj, according to the expression: yj (t + ?) = (S) ui (t) Where t is time and ? is the latency of biosystem. Then, by what mechanism, such kind of a processes, can give almost instant response? It is known that the complex interrelationship between the structures of "evoluated" bodies (tissue, organ, body) have a form of "CLOSED CAUSAL CHAIN": Francois Jacob - Nobel laureate for genetics said:" ... each component (of life systems) becomes for the other its own condition of existence, equally cause and effect. " But a "closed causal chain" of the processes (process "1" generated process "2", process "2" generated process "3" and so on, and at last process "n" generated the first process "1"), if it's followed by a state of stability (we found this on organisms), involves the simultaneous development of each of these processes (which it transform in "CLOSED ORDERED CHAIN"). Or, their chemical nature, burdened by a latency ( slow evolution in time), and so, certain cell produces a certain amount of substance in a given period, make that some structures will can not operate simultaneous, for lack of "raw material". Or, in the body, all structures must function simultaneously, so that the flow of the substance which functional unites them to be continuous and closed. It follows that some cells must begin working before receiving "raw material" from previous functional cells, based on a quantity of substance which is available for processing in his very structure. This mechanism could be the explanation of the intern synthesis process (biosynthesis) for necessary substances in metabolism, independently of the process of assimilation of food, from outside. Handy command for the very moment when this phenomenon must take place must have a "support" more "rapid" than a chemical process (the "latency" high). He must be an electrical signal. Vegetative (autonomic) nervous system role is to provide such synchronization signals of chemical processes at the contact of the structures (sensitive and effectors) with environment. The result of synchronization is a continuous mass flow between the different structures of the body which provides geometric and functional stability. If in a "links" of the "chain" that supports an external stimulus, and that flow tends to be interrupt because of this stimulus ( means "dead" ), but not "mechanically" but "informational" interrupting (repetitions with intervals shorter than "latency" of such chemical processes, which, default, is forced to consume more) then, the following functional structures may remain without "material" (even without the quantity of substance from his own structure which is for maintain simultaneity of processes). Under the electrical impulses pressure that forces them to work on and in this kind of conditions they come to destroy their own internal functional structure (the one that gives them the "function" ) turning them into malignant cells (cancer). So the electrical signals that provide simultaneous processes in the body, under certain conditions, forcing some structures to operate in a specific way, initially it is useful for body (to avoid the spontaneous collapsing under the action of certain types of stimulus, informational organized ). So, the tumor is an independent organism ( from his host). He is intelligent, he can take decisions, he can adapt at the specifics external stimulus (treatments or action of immunologic system). This coordinated tip of behavior of malign cells is facilitated by the connection of the tumor with the nerves of autonomic nervous system ( which offer a rich informational support and which exist- the connection- in all situations, known or not by the medicine). So, the principle of a method (for cure the cancer) is that: the tumor mast be isolated by the influence of activity of the nerves (cutting the nerve or stop the electrochemical signals circulation influence from synapses to the tumor by activity of a neurotoxin-see American patent: Pub. No. : US 2005/0031648 A1; Pub Date: Feb. 10, 2005). Main and Prehn have performed such experiments in 1957 ( they pull out the tumor and pull in the same tumor to the same animal) with promising results. But they follow a different theoretical idea (the existence of a specific tumor antigen). There is a material which shows that the results of Main and Prehn experiences ( the specific immune response of the organism for tumor) have not had, until now, an accepted explanation . I can put at disposal for anyone interested a treatment solution that complies with the principles set forth above and which most probably has not been used nowhere in the world.

A NEW WAY TO KILL CANCER CELLS The write-up on the topic makes us more optimistic about the victory of human efforts on the hydra headed and silent killer, cancer. Can't we impartially further experiment on the Homeopathic medicines, the preparation of which is based on the energy at the base level of a substance?
Jonialcos, you are such a lazy researcher. First you formulate a statement and you let us prove the truth in your statement. Do your homework, read medical journals pointing to the direction of your statement. Go to your school's library, don't research through google for most information on it are unverified.
With billions at stake it will take a brave person to stand up to the people profiting from cancer care to see a cancer cure come to light. I believe we are closer to a cure than many people want us to think. Promising work on a cure has likely been buried in the bureaucracy.
One minute cure: Describes about Hydrogen peroxide Is it working. Can anybody have any positive/negative feedbacks. please mail me to firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I ask a question to all of you? I have a thesis writing with this statement, Acupuncture:It's Therapeutic Effectiveness in the Cure of Cancer Does acupuncture today can possibly cure cancer.? can all of you help me finding it. I need your help. thank you
can I ask a question.? does acupuncture today can possibly cure cancer.? Please leave a reply..thank you.
I hate to say this, but there are so many companies/corporations that make money from cancer care, not cancer cures, that any actual cure already available or discovered will be swept under the carpet.
Sounds promising. But prevention of cancer growth through anti-angiogenesis sounds like it might be more practical
In Europe there is a drug called Ukrain.... research it.... it tempoarily floods cells with oxygen, killing cancer cells, but wears off soon enough (I guess) to not harm normal cells.... very hard to get in the U.S., not FDA approved, therfore insurance won't pay, so expense is too much for many.... too bad, my wife needs it now....
A person in Sanibel Florida invented a devise that kills cancer cells with radio frequencies.Leaving normal cells healthy.What ever happened with that?
...all cells. So that's no help to anyone. That's why there is no reason to "release" that information.
Interesting enough, probable hope for cancer patients in the future. Cancer is a scary subject, possibly in part due to the overwhelming fear that someone's body is literally destroying itself. It can happen; it does happen. Little is known about the various types of cancer and how it is able to spread so easily and embed itself so firmly into various parts of a body. Much progress is needed. Perhaps if we knew more about our 'enemy', we would be better equipped to stave off it's relentless attacks. These studies are essential to not only find medicine to kill the cells but ways to possibly control, manage, and manipulate them to have a some functional purpose. If not to prevent cancers entirely which would also be a desired outcome for many. Researchers are modern day heroes, fighting off the 'mythical monsters' of modern day. Support is needed and funding is as necessary a tool as the men and women who devote themselves to the battle. In the time of sixty years it would be nice to say that cancer was, "Only at one time a combatant"... Sixty years or sooner! Brian Leonard Associate of Science: Chemistry
Come on. Anyone who does lots of research already knows that Cancer cannot grow in an oxygen rich environment, freshly ozonated water. Ozone will kill cancer and even tumours. As if they would release this information (that they are fully aware of already). Ozone is free. I suggest a book called "The Story of Ozone". Proof? Look up the only person to receive two Nobel Prizes in Medicine. Dr. Otto Warburg of the Kaiser Institute in Berlin.
I predict that progress in controlling cancer will be slow and not easy. Cancer is one of mother nature's ways of bringing life to a close. Just as is Alzheimer's disease. We should actually be grateful that more and more people are living long enough for C. and A.D. to come into play. Europeans have a saying: There's nothing shameful about cancer; if you live long enough you'll get it.
The expression of the gene is controlled by proteins,which in turn,the protein is produced by the gene..The difference between a new born baby and 60 years old man is the time. the genetic expression of the new born baby and the 60 years old man will vary. how the expression of gene differs according to the time??? i think the difference in biological function with age is due to exposure of our body to gravity,electromagnetic force,or any unknown force. the difference in age is not the time but the amount of gravity and EM force the body is exposed to... the gene is controlled by heat shock proteins they can sense these forces..
