Gene therapy offers “revolution” in prostate cancer treatment

Scientists have discovered new way of slowing the growth of prostate cancer. For the first time experiments have successfully targeted the activity of non-cancerous cells which encourage the tumour to grow. In changing the way these fibroblast cells behave, by manipulating their gene expression, scientists were able to slow down the growth of prostate cancer in mice.

Experts say it could form the basis of ‘a revolution’ in the treatment of the disease.
