Women undergoing cervical cancer treatment or even others are more likely to become infertile following the harmful radiations emitted during the radiotherapy and chemotherapy to eradicate cancerous cells. However, this lays a severe impact on the fertility of women, as there are high chances that her eggs get damaged.
Australian researchers have emerged with a way that they claim will help woman restore and protect their fertility even after undergoing the treatment.
Researchers at the Melbourne's Monash University and Prince Henry Institute of Medical Research have suggested certain proteins, which are being suspected to be beneficial for those women being treated.
Researchers subjected that they have discovered two particular proteins, known as Puma and Noxa, which have been held responsible behind the damages suffered by the eggs in the ovaries and also triggers other cell death in case of DNA damages.
Associate Professor Clare Scott of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute said, "This removal of damaged cells is a natural process that is essential to maintaining health but, for women undergoing cancer treatment, can be devastating when it leads to infertility".
The research has been published online in the journal Molecular Cell; hope that the discovery will help develop new treatments, which will help restrict the function of the proteins, thus protecting the eggs from being destroyed.
