Killing Cancer Like A Vampire Slayer: New Drug Cuts Off Blood Supplies To Starve Cancer Tumors
"We can turn cancer into a chronic manageable disease."
- Dr. Ronit Satchi-Fainaro, medical researcher
Like vampires, cancer tumors require an ample supply of blood to stay alive ... Without fresh blood for sustenance, cancer cells shrivel up like raisins and die.
To that end, Dr. Ronit Satchi-Fainaro of Tel Aviv University's Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Sackler School of Medicine, and her team of researchers have developed a new drug carrier to deliver compounds straight to the tumor.
