Genetic breakthrough hails new cancer research era
- View SourceGenetic breakthrough hails new cancer research era
The genetic code of two of the most deadly cancers has been cracked
by British scientists in a world first that opens up a whole new era
in the treatment for the disease.
All the mutations that turn healthy cells cancerous in both lung
and skin tumours have been identified in what researchers described
as a "transforming moment" in the search for preventions, treatments
and cures for both terminal illnesses.
Such a detailed picture of the fundamental causes of the disease
will lead to earlier detection, new breeds of drugs and better
understanding of what causes the disease, they claim.
