Blocking rogue cancer gene could stop disease

British scientists have discovered a "rogue gene" which helps cancer spread around the body and say blocking it with the right kind of drugs could stop many types of the disease in their tracks.

"The challenge now is to identify a potent drug that will get inside cancer cells and destroy the activity of the rogue gene," said Andrew Chantry of UEA's school of biological sciences, who led the research.

The report comes from the University of East Anglia. We're hopeful that their cancer researchers have higher standards than EAU climatologists. Their work is based on decades of major British discoveries into genes.
