Blood cancer is known as one of the most lethal illnesses because of which millions of people die worldwide every day.
Blood cancers have failed even the most advanced treatments available today. They do not respond to them well and this has forced the patients suffering from such cancers to look out for some new effective treatments. In order to overcome the situation, researchers are trialing a breach treatment with which they are aiming to kill even those rigid cancerous blood cells and that too without affecting the healthy cells.
Patients suffering from lymphomas and leukemia will be included in this trial. Reason behind this is that these two categories of cancer are the most rigid ones and presently, these have not responded optimally to other treatments.
If succeeds, this treatment would be a unique one because it would hit the cancerous cells and will have minimal effect on healthy ones.
According to Professor Grant McArthur of the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne, "All cells in our body need to make proteins to be able to grow and there's a protein factory in our cells called the ribosomes, and we have discovered unexpectedly that cancer cells have a real Achilles heel in their ribosomes".
