Mayo Clinic may have made a major breakthrough in stopping cancer

Mayo Clinic may have made a major breakthrough in stopping cancer. Cancers of the blood, bladder, bone, brain, lungs, and kidneys are some of the examples that Mayo Clinic researchers believe can be stopped, even in late stages.

The clinic, along with an international research team has found a way to stop the progression of late stage cancers, essentially “turning cancer off.”

Dr. Konstantinos Lazaridis, the associate director at the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine, says that the new discovery may allow scientists to turn off the genes that prevent the spreading of cancer.

This is a huge step. We have to understand what is behind this process to attack it effectively,” Lazaridis said.

Lazaridis says that a potential treatment depends on a new type of medical research called epigenomics. According to Mayo Clinic’s Individualized Medicine blog, “Epigenomics is the study of the complete set of epigenetic modifications on the genetic material of a cell.”

We may be able to screen people earlier with new methods that can prevent the development of cancer if we know what predisposes them to development disease,” Lazaridis said.
