Help with some questions on Cancer Biology !!! School paper

Post by znchong » Wed Sep 27, 2006 5:09 am

"Are there genes expressed commonly and exclusively in cancer cells? What are the roles of these genes and their products in cancer formation and progression? How can gene therapy and other drugs be developed to target these genes in order to prevent or cure cancer safely and effectively? The answers for these questions might one day lead to a universal drug or treatment for all types of cancer."

I am writing a paper for my graduate molecular bio class. However, I am not sure if I have phrased these questions scientifically correct to be used in the paper. Please let me know if these are sensible questions to you guys!!! Would my questions sound stupid ?

P.S
In the first question, I wanna ask if there are genes that are expressed in all types of cancer and only in cancer cells not normal cell.

Thanks a lot !!!
