Scientists Engineer Protein to Make Cancer Treatment Effective

In a recent revelation, it has been confirmed that a protein has been developed by a team of researchers from The University of Western Australia. It is believed that so far, there has not been any major improvement seen in treating cancer with the help of immunotherapy and that’s why it was felt that there is need for some sort of cure to be find out in the time to come.

Published in the `Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences` journal, the study was done by Prof Ruth Ganss at the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research.

"We engineered a protein called TNF-Alpha so that it went straight to a pancreatic tumor and stayed there without toxic side effects outside the tumor”, said Dr Anna Johansson, from The University of Western Australia, while claiming that the protein managed to get inside the tumor and did the job required to be done.

It is believed that low doses of the same can make significant difference in the way cancer is being treated. It would be worth seeing how the low dose TNF-Alpha can make things better for those who are undergoing chemotherapy as of now. There are expectations that this study would change the future course of cancer treatment in the time to come.
