Gene Therapy Eradicates Pancreatic Cancer in Mice
Researchers at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center have found in pre-clinical trials that a molecularly engineered therapy selectively embeds a gene in pancreatic cancer that shrinks or eradicates
tumours, inhibits metastasis, and prolongs survival virtually without toxicity.
