Fresh hope for cancer sufferers as Manchester scientists make new breakthrough
Scientists have made a breakthrough in understanding what causes an aggressive form of blood cancer.
Experts at Cancer Research UK’s Paterson Institute at the University of Manchester have found that a protein, known as TTC5, is crucial to fuelling acute myeloid leukaemia.
They discovered that reducing the amount of the protein in cells causes the leukaemia to die.
The researchers, led by James Lynch from the Paterson, say that the study gives a greater understanding of the proteins that cancers need to grow and could help in the development of more targeted drugs in the future.
