Researchers find promising cancer-fighting power of synthetic cell-signaling molecule

...e researchers have also found that Enigmols can be administered orally and appear in often-difficult-to reach organs such as the prostate. "This is what suggested to us that Enigmols should be tested against other cancer types," Merrill explained. Subsequently, the researchers found that Enigmols suppress the gr...

NIAID begins clinical trial of West Nile virus vaccine
