As per a data being published in the Nature, it has been revealed that the first volume of a "book of cancer knowledge" has been published. The data explains about some of the details being given the book.
Experts across the globe are of the view that the book will trigger the search for new cancer drugs. In addition, a cancer charity has also said that the book will help researchers to find cancer drugs as per a patient's genetic profile.
The book has revealed that there are millions of cells exist and how it reacts to anti-cancer agents. A lot many papers are being published in regard to cancer cells. Recently, it was found that a team of researchers at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge have released two papers, which has discussed about hundreds of cancer cell lines.
In addition, it has also been unveiled that researches have been taking place in different parts of the world, like a team of researchers from the UK have been working with the researchers of US, Paris and Switzerland, to test 130 drugs.
They have claimed to find out clues, which can benefit to patients, like discovery of a rare bone cancer in children. Dr. Mathew Garnett of the Sanger Institute said that they have been trying to find the right drug for each tumor.
He further affirmed, "It's bringing together two very large and very powerful data sets and asking which cell line is the most sensitive and what is behind that sensitivity".
Professor Charles Swanton of the Cancer Research UK's London Research Institute has affirmed that new researches being done on cancer cells will help them to gather valuable information for cancer treatment.
