SCIENCE & TECH Designing a killer to kill a killer cancer cells - dividing and proliferating without control, forming lumps called tumours Anti-cancer drugs - damage normal, healthy cells & Gives Side effects & Penetrates tumor eventually . 'Surgical Strike' or cutting off the tumour damage normal tissues .Need :killer device to target cell mass . one type of killer cells (microbes which cause disease to normal healthy cells, even death, if left untreated) to kill another type of killer cells (cancer) . they kill cancer cells, they may also damage healthy cells of the body . Salmonella typhimurium (the one that causes typhoid-like disease in rats, and leads to gastric problems and diarrhea in humans) we delete the gene called msbB from its genome, its toxicity towards normal cells is vastly reduced . compared to normal cells, tumour cells are far richer in ATP . ATP, the energy currency molecule in cells . VNP20009 as a carrier or vehicle, and loaded it with the protein called p53 which suppresses tumour growth molecule called azurin which kills cancer cells, and also protects p53 from degradatiorn this cargo-laden ST on to rats which carried grafts of cancerous brain tumours obtained from humans. .This therapy allowed the cancer-bearing rats survive for more than 100 days, compared with barely 26 days for untreated rats. . (1) normal and healthy body cells are not affected, (2) they penetrate the body of the cancer cells, (3) this allows delivery of the drugs into the interior of the cancer cell (where conventional drugs find hard to enter), and (4) we can add more cargo, and allow additional cancer-killer drugs while keeping normal cells safe enough.
