nuclear factor - kappa beta


Recommended Posts

There was an interesting article in Scientific American about cancer and inflammation and the immune system.

According to the article the immune system does fight cancer but paradoxically may also provide a micro environment for the cancer to thrive and grow.

It says there are two immune systems and that the "inate one" that is the first line of defense and causes inflamation may actually encourge the cancer to grow.

It also said that cancer vaccines have not been working out yet. my opinion - maybe avoid them for now.

Also it talks about a protein called NF-KB.

When this was inhibited the cancer in an experiment stopped growing.

I am sure there is a long way to go but if anyone is looking for clinical trials this may be one to follow.

One such drug is INGN 241 (I am pretty sure there are others)
