The cure for c***** remains a mystery to this date, and although scientists are doing their best to find one, it might still take a long time for it to get through the market. Several people have survived this notorious disease, but many of them didn’t make it.
The human body has genes that strive hard to protect us from c***** and if they don’t function well, we become vulnerable and our lives are easily put in danger. This is what happens to all c***** victims, but the scientists in Melbourne have found out how a c*****-preventing gene works hard to stop the development of lymphoma and other types of c*****.
A gene called p53 is a t**** protein that works to suppress a t****.
TP53 or commonly known as p53, the protein regulates the c***** cells. It plays a very important role in the human body as it blocks out the possible development of a t****. If p53 fails, it will result in the progression of at least half of all types of c*****.
On the other hand, if the gene functions well, it can instruct cancerous cells to crash or to prevent from developing. One example is lymphoma or c***** of the lymph nodes and lymphatic system, which grows rapidly.
Although researchers know that p53 protecs us from c*****, nobody can actually explain how it prevents t**** progression.
On the plus side, Melbourne scientists discovered a “special group of genes” that works in the human body’s normal DNA repair process. Called MLH1, they are the crucial genes that make p53 efficient in preventing the development of c*****.
This repair gene also gives effectiveness to p53 in stopping the B-cell lymphomas from developing.
This new finding should help doctors discover more effective and safe treatments for the c***** patients.
One of the lead researchers in this study Dr. Ana Janic said that the results might take time to “translate into clinical practice,” but it’s already a great start.
Dr. Janic,an Associate Professor Marco Herold, and Professor Andreas Strasser, Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI) researchers with honorary University of Melbourne appointments added that the discovery gives the researchers more chances to check if the DNA repair process is also critical in preventing the development of other types of c***** such as pancreatic and colon c*****.
“It is defects (mutations) in this gene that’s actually causing 50 per cent of human cancers. It’s really exciting because we’ve kind of opened the window for many new discoveries in this area.”
Early Riser Women Have Less Chance of Developing Depression Than Late Risers, Study Claims
It’s time to wake up early.
It's not easy to wake up early if you sleep late at night. However, a new study finds that women who get up early in the morning are less likely to get depressed than those who wake up late.
The study, conducted by the scientists at the University of Colorado Boulder, and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, looked into over 32,000 women with an average age of 55. Researchers found out that those who are not morning persons are more susceptible to depression. The findings of this study were published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research....
Tibetan Girl’s Unconventional Beauty Shakes the Modeling World
Her look is so different, “out of this world” is a more fitting description for her.
Right now, when you say "supermodel," you immediately think of Kendall Jenner or the Hadid sisters, Gigi and Bella. They may differ when it comes to looks, but they are still considered conventional by modeling standards. Now a new model comes in and her look is so different, and some say "out of this world" is a more fitting description for her.
Tsunaina, who hails from Tibet and is currently living in the UK, has beautiful slanted eyes, gorgeous pouty lips, chiseled jawline, and lots of beauty marks scattered all over her lower face....
Toddler Swallows Fidget Spinner Part That Almost Cost His Life
A warning to all parents…
Fidget spinners took the world by storm last year and even the adults play with them without problems. But who would've thought that the seemingly harmless toy could be potentially deadly?
A three-year-old boy in Dallas, Texas was almost killed after he swallowed the fidget spinner's circuit board and disc battery. This should serve as a warning to parents to keep an eye on their kids when playing with toys....
