Therapy for stopping the spread of cancer cells

...eorgia have found that an enzyme that affects cell surface carbohydrates is more highly expressed in cancer cells. The enzyme makes it easier for cells to let go of their neighbours and spread. So there's a potential for blocking this enzyme, known as GnT-V, with drugs and this may form the basis of a new th...
