Experts crack cancer 'gene codes'
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/5325206.stm

US scientists have cracked the entire genetic code of breast and colon cancers, offering new treatment hopes.

The genetic map shows that nearly 200 mutated genes, most previously unknown, help tumours emerge, grow and spread.

The discovery could also lead to better ways to diagnose cancer in its early, most treatable stages, and personalised treatments, Science magazine reports.

The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center says the findings suggest cancer is more complex than experts had believed.

6. I took a Cancer Biology class in college 20 years ago.
And back then scientists were hopeful about a 'magic bullet' treatment. The prof said that cancer is so complicated that it probably wasn't going to happen. Looks like he was right.

This isn't a cure yet, but it's one hell of a good step. :)

8. Great news but...
not in time for Uncle Jim. I am told his metastasized stomach cancer will take him yet this week. He just found out about 3 1/2 weeks ago. They need every Democrat in Ohio don't they?

11. Science will save the world.
If it doesn't destroy it first.

:nuke:

Boy, if they find a cure for cancer in my lifetime, I'll die knowing I've seen some honest-to-God progress.
