A ‘built-in genetic circuit’ could fight cancer by starving tumors of oxygen

Imagine having cells in your body that can actively repel cancer in a way that makes it theoretically impossible for you to suffer from it.

Researchers at the U.K.’s University of Southampton are doing a lot more than just imagining such a scenario. In a new piece of research, they have engineered cells with a so-called “built-in genetic circuit” capable of producing a molecule for inhibiting the ability of tumors to grow and survive in the body. – READ MORE
