Inhibiting a protein shrinks tumor in mice?

According to the research of scientists at the MRC's Clinical Sciences Centre, they have found that blocking a single protein can not only inhibit tumor cell division but also prevent tumor cells form metastasizing to other parts in the body. The finding may provide a clue for future treatment of glioblastoma.

Glioblastoma is regarded as the most malignant form of brain tumor. The average survival time is no more than 1 year. Very few patients can survive for a long term. Cancer cells are capable of spreading to the whole brain, making treatments unable to eliminate them. Even surgery cannot completely eradicate tumors. So an effective therapy for this cancer is in need.
