Oklahoma scientists find way to slow cancer tumor growth in mice
Researchers at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation discovered a way to slow cancer tumors from growing in mice by removing a protein that regulates the formation of blood vessels. In some cases, cancer growth was stopped altogether.
At first, scientist Hong Chen didn’t believe the results.
“When they showed me the results, I said, ‘Are you guys nuts?’” Chen said.
Chen and a group of researchers at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation recently made a discovery that could lead to new or better therapies in cancer treatment.
