Blocking this key gene could be the switch to turn off major cancers

In 10 Seconds? Researchers have discovered a new cancer-survival tactic and created a promising new treatment that blocks cancers from using this tactic to spread and become more deadly.

Tumors have tactics? Cancers are crafty. They use a wide variety of strategies to outwit your body’s normal protective measures which allows them to grow uncontrollably and take over. This is why cancer is so difficult to treat. If you block tumors from using one strategy, they frequently can employ another tactic to keep on growing. Knowing this, cancer researchers are always looking to discover treatments that employ new strategies to block cancer growth. Their goal is then to use these treatments in combination with existing treatments so that tumors can be attacked from as many angles as possible, minimizing the cancer’s chances for survival.
