Treating Cancer With Precision: Molecular Targets for Therapeutic Interaction in Cancer Cells

Author: Jay Ann Kan     Abstract: Cancer, caused by spontaneous mutations, remains a lingering possibility in the lives of many. According to the National Cancer Institute, the risk of developing cancer in a lifetime is 42% and 38% for men and women respectively. However, as the options for cancer treatment progress, the treatments developed …

A Gene-Environment Interaction: How Tissue Injury Corporates with Mutation to Drive Cancer

ABSTRACT: “At the age of 47, when I know that I have cancer, my only wish is to make it to 50”. Being notorious for being the most lethal cancer type and that there is no existing effective treatment, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) – a type of aggressive pancreatic cancer- is truly a death sentence …
