Researchers from the University of Leeds, UK, the Charit© University Medical School and the Max Delbrck Centre for Molecular Medicine (MDC) in Berlin, Germany, have discovered a new driving force behind cancer growth. Their studies have identified how 'junk' DNA promotes the growth of cancer cells in patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma. Professor Constanze Bonifer (University of Leeds) and Dr Stephan Mathas (Charit©, MDC) who co-led the study suspect that these pieces of 'junk' DNA,...
