If Melbourne scientists are to be believed then there is very good news for breast cancer patients and their sufferings.
In their recent findings, a team of Melbourne researchers is claiming to have found a new way or method with the help of which, they say they can put a stop at the spread of breast cancer and its infection to the bone.
The above are the claims of researchers at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Monash Institute of Medical Research. In their studies, they have noticed a new way of switching off the signal that is sent by the breast cancer cells to the immune system to fight them.
Dr. Belinda Parker explains that "This is particularly interesting because by understanding how they do this, we're hoping to use therapies that already exist to restore this immune function.”
She adds that the medical science is already performing similar treatments for melanoma and hepatitis. Thus the researchers are now aiming to give breast cancer patients another treatment to help them ease their illness.
They initially also focused on determining all the conditions of breast cancer patients and calculate which ones will be more sensitive to the therapies than others.
