Fortunately, today we have to talk about very encouraging news. And the Institute of Oncology of the Hospital Vall D’hebron of Barcelona has developed a therapy that has made it possible to eradicate the tumors of lung in mice.
This has been possible thanks to the inhibition of protein Myc, which has an essential role in the development of tumors, considering the tumor core by scientists. Thus, the researchers have managed to address the core of the tumor with a result that opens new avenues of research and treatment in the fight against lung cancer, whose prevalence especially in women has increased in recent years.
The importance of the Myc protein
According to the researchers, involved in Myc regulate gene transcription and cellular processes (proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis), and when this protein goes awry, has resulted in a proliferation uncontrolled cell, which can create the perfect setting for the proliferation different tumor tissues.
