Salvage Gene Is At The Root Of Many Mutations

...which is thought to occur because mutations permit precancerous cells to overcome the geneticdefenses against unlimited cell proliferation and migration." The Rochester researchers believe the findings could open a major new avenue of cancer prevention. People withgenetic predispositions to cancer could be g...

...ed, as theydo in humans with atrophic gastritis, a precancerous condition. In a differentstudy, Gordon's group has shown that undifferentiated cells in the stomachlining proliferate abnormally when parietal cells are lost. Such unrestrainedcell division eventually may increase the risk of cancer, Gordon suggests....

Asprin-like drugs may be useful for cancer treatment, study suggests

...to test the ability of COX-2 inhibitors to prevent precancerous polyps in the colon. In recent years, cancer researchers have turned to the field of angiogenesis as a hopeful avenue to fight cancer by more indirect means than traditional chemo- or radiation therapy. Tumors produce growth factors, such as VEGF, t...
