Resistant tumors could be treated with the discovery of a new molecule within cancer cells

...d cells. In normal cell division, a cell can only divide if it has correctly shared out all its genes, ensuring each new cell receives a complete set. If there is a problem with the process of sharing out genes, an alarm will be triggered and the cell will not divide. However, cells with high amounts of AU...

New vaccine for brain cancer
