• Watch Maltese scientists develop new cancer prevention technology

    first_img SharePrint Maltese scientists from the University of Malta’s Laboratory of Molecular Oncologyat the Department of Pathology, say they have developed a new way to preventand manage cancer.The results from this research provide knowledge on how to better classify tumors‘into different sub-groups with unique properties’. It has also allowed for betteranalysis of blood cells and blood capsules which are ‘shed’ from the tumor in theblood. The use of a liquid biospy allows for less invasive testing.This is also understood to be a more targeted therapy using drugs to pinpointspecific proteins found in cancer cells and their growth. This is completely differentfrom chemotherapy because it distinguishes between the healthy cells and thosethat are cancerous.The first product launch will take place in September at the European Congress ofPathology, CEO of Applied Biotech Ltd., Claudine Spiteri Grech said.This research was led by Professor Godfrey Grech, and done by Prof.. ChristianScerri, Dr. Shawn Baldacchino, Jeanesse Scerri, Ala Petersons, Maria Pia Grixti,Martina Spiteri, together with Mrs Claudine Grech Spiteri.Funding the project came through the FUSION Fund of the Malta Council for Scienceand Technology (MCST).WhatsApp <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a>last_img
