Scientists test 'secret weapon' against tumours

Abstract:
A team of scientists from the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research gave mice a chemical that caused cancer cells to commit suicide, significantly slowing the growth of the tumours they were carrying. The chemical kick started a gene called p73 that brings about cancer cell death.

This early research could pave the way for a new agent to stop tumours growing. The researchers suggest that sending the protein - called 37AA - directly into the bloodstream using a 'nanoparticle' delivery system could be a potential way to find and kill tumour cells that have spread as well as those in the primary tumour.
