Purdue scientists: To stop cancer, keep your Icmt away from your Ras

...If our inhibitor molecules directed at stopping or slowing the activity of Icmt in tumor cells are effective, we should be able to stop the growth of Ras-based cancers." Hrycyna said she believed the discovery could ultimately throw a wrench into cancer's operation, but that it was still too early to pre...
