Scientists discover molecule that acts as natural cancer defense, Cancer Treatment
Scientists from Canada have found a natural defense mechanism for cancer prevention. Cytokines have long been known to produce diseases that include cancer, diabetes, and chronic inflammation. The new study identifies a link between the SOCS1 molecule and the p53 gene that is found to be lost among a majority of cancer patients.
The new research surprisingly showed the link between SOCS1 molecule and cancer. According to a lead author and Université de Montréal student, Viviane Calabrese The research team didn't anticipate that SOCS1 would turn out to be linked to p53, the master regulator of natural anticancer defenses. We were surprised to realize that SOCS1 was directly linked to p53."
