- Cancer Type: Blood Cancer, lymphoma
Thanks to our supporters, Dr Arianna Sabò at the European Institute of Oncology in Milan recently discovered that the tumorigenic activity of Myc required a specific enzyme found in cells. Importantly, this means that this enzyme could be a useful target for treating cancers that produce too much Myc.
Dr Sabò and her team now want to take this research to the next level by dissecting exactly how this enzyme cross-talks with Myc, with the hope of revealing insight into new therapeutic strategies. Dr Sabò is initially investigating this in a type of blood cancer called B-cell lymphoma, but the findings could have benefit for many other cancer types.
