Did you hear about the molecular probe that can illuminate elusive cancer stem cells in live mice?

In a paper published in the journal ACS Central Science, the researchers described the probe's effectiveness in identifying cancer stem cells in cultures of multiple human cancer cell lines as well as in live mice.

"It's really the first time to be able to look at cancer stem cells in the complicated environment where they live -- not only in cell cultures or artificial tumor environments," said Illinois chemistry professor Jefferson Chan, who led the study. "Seeing them is the first step toward understanding them. Now we can see where they're hiding out, how they change as the disease is progressing or how they respond when you apply treatment."
WOW!! This sounds like a break through.

That does sound pretty good.
Metastasis is one of the main reasons why cancer is so hard to beat.
This tech will be able to track that function.
And given the commonalities involved, could lead to treatments for several types of cancer.
Good research.

I pray this works for all cancer. It is time cancer is eradicated. I was going to be sixteen when lung cancer killed my grandmother, it killed my mother in while I was pregnant and a close friend of my sister in laws. Who I was very fond of. I want to kill Cancer once and for all. I hate autism and cancer. I pray that God will cure them in my lifetime. I want it this year.
