Scottish scientists from Strathclyde and Glasgow Universities have discovered a way to make tumours vanish in ten days, without any side effects. A leading medical journal has decribed the results so far as remarkable. Dr Christine Dufes, leader of the research said "The tumours were completely gone in ten days. It's fantastic. When you talk about ten days, that is the time frame for curing a cold. Imagine if within ten days, you could completely make a tumour disappear". Researchers have been trying for years to find something that would attack the tumour without destroying healthy tissue and now they've done it.
Remember hearing about those grants made by our governments and other institutions for medical research, well this outcome came about from a grant supplied by a Scottish charity - Tenovus Scotland - which helps young scientists get their ideas off the ground. This news is so exciting, I can't understand why the world isn't jumping up and down - it was released on the 21st April. Thanks to our Scottish cousins, a cure for this terrible disease is getting closer.
