Mice ‘cured’ of lung cancer with gene therapy

| | March 8, 2013

The following is an excerpt.

Mice with up to 200 tumours have been completely cured of lung cancer using a “gene therapy” technique, scientists claim.

By blocking production of a protein which drives the development of tumours, researchers were able to eliminate the tumours without any evidence of adverse side-effects.

The study found that the treatment was effective even after several rounds of therapy suggesting that the mice did not become resistant to it – a major problem for cancer doctors.
