Scientists at Purdue University have created a new way to treat cancer, which can help stop the growth of tumors of some types, such as prostate cancer.
“We have devised a treatment method that can help attract and stimulate immune cells that are able to destroy cancer cells, and also contribute to bone repair,” says Dr. Marx Figueiredo, associate professor in the Department of Basic Medical Sciences at the University College of Veterinary Medicine, who was one of the supervisors of the research. And tissue affected by cancerous tumors. “
He added, “One of the best advantages of this technology is that it promises that it can be used to treat many types of cancer.”
In their experiments, the researchers used a protein called IL-27 (interleukin-27), which showed very promising results in reducing tumor growth and preventing the spread of cancer in the body.
