UGA researcher unlocks links between complex carbohydrates and spread of cancer

...asion. Inhibiting GnT-V activity appears to slow progression of some cancers. If Pierce can create a specific inhibitor of GnT-V that works in the body, preventing the spread of some cancers might be achieved with a simple injection. There are also diagnostic possibilities for Pierce's research. Diagnosing ...
