Israeli scientists have found an amazing way to eradicate cancer cells from the human body. According to Mail Online, scientists at Tel Aviv University have discovered a new treatment for cancer through a mutation in DNA that kills cancer cells altogether and heals the patient. Scientists used CRISPR Cas-9 in this treatment.
According to the report, the research on rats has yielded very satisfactory results. This is the first study of its kind to attempt to eliminate cancer cells by editing genes.
Professor Dan Pierre, who led the research team, said: “I hope that within the next two years this treatment will be available to humans and will be an alternative to chemotherapy. Jennifer Dodna and Emmanuel Carpenter have also won the Nobel Prize for the gene editing technique used in this study.
