Cell Discovery May Lead to Major Breakthrough in Cancer Treatment


New Strategy Could More Selectively Target Cancer Cells


University of Virginia School of Medicine researchers have discovered a new strategy for attacking cancer cells that could fundamentally alter the way doctors treat and prevent the deadly disease. By more selectively targeting cancer cells, this method offers a strategy to reduce the length of and physical toll associated with current treatments.


“We think we have a way not only to more specifically target cancer cells, but a way that could become a frontline treatment for women who have cancers of many types and want to preserve fertility,” said reproduction researcher John Herr, PhD, of UVA’s Department of Cell Biology and the UVA Cancer Center.
