Breast cancer is generally very lethal when it has begun to spread to other tissues in the vicinity. The process of spreading breast cancer this would be prevented, because scientists have discovered what makes it easy to spread.
As with any other solid cancers, breast cancer can grow thrust so that lack of oxygen. To
be able to keep growing, breast cancer cells will form new blood
vessels with rocks called protein Hypoxia Inducible Factor (HIF-1).
have learned that there are increases in HIF-1 relation to blood
vessels and increase death rates of patients," says Gregg Semenza, m.d.,
Ph.d., a scientist from Johns Hopkins University, as quoted from
Medindia, Friday (2/9/2012).
A joint research team findings from Gregg Johns Hopkins recently managed to confirm the theory. The activity of HIF-1 is directly responsible for the spread of breast cancer to surrounding tissues including lymph glands.
the experiments, scientists injected the cells of breast cancer that
comes from human beings into the body of the mouse test. Cancer cells that have been left to be injected and then grow and develop, to eventually spread to the lungs.
Some of the mice given the drug test is to inhibit the activity of HIF-1. That
was not given preferential treatment compared to nothing, were given
the drug to mice that depresses levels of HIF-1 is likely to have
cancerous growths 76 percent slower.
humans, it is believed to inhibit the activity of administering digoxin
HIF-1 as well as commonly used for imatinib cure cancer will make
breast cancer more difficult to spread. If left untreated, compared the size of the tumor so 78 percent smaller and the risk of spread to lymph nodes down 94 percent.
