NEWS-CANCER - Cell behavior mapped in low oxygen conditions, may lead to cancer treatment

Research has explained how cells behave when placed in a low oxygen environment, a development that could have implications for cancer patients and other serious illnesses. The findings open up the possibility of controlling the signals that keep cells alive, preventing the damages caused by ischemia -- a restriction of blood supply to tissues. It could also work to help destroy cancer cells ...
