    How good is this news from the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. (ACRF).

    In a world first, Australian scientists have discovered a new type of anti-cancer drug that can put cancer cells into a permanent sleep, without the harmful side-effects caused by conventional cancer therapies.

    Published on August 3 in the journal Nature, the research reveals the first class of anti-cancer drugs that work by putting the cancer cell to sleep – arresting tumour growth and spread without damaging the cells’ DNA.

    The new class of drugs could provide an exciting alternative for people with cancer, and has already shown great promise in halting cancer progression in models of blood and liver cancers, as well as in delaying cancer relapse.

    Australian immunologist Ian Frazer and virologist Jian Zhou developed and patented the basic technology behind the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix against cervical cancer at the University of Queensland in 2005. The first vaccines ever designed to prevent a cancer.

    Cancer Scientists at Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research in Western Australia, the Children’s Medical Research Institute in Sydney and the Max Plank Institute for Biology of Ageing in Cologne, Germany, have developed a way to wrap artificial proteins around the ends of chromosomes to effectively block the uncontrolled growth that occurs with most cancers.
    Associate Professor Oliver Rackham’s team at the Perkins Institute has engineered proteins that effectively clamp tightly around the end of the single stranded DNA in the chromosome.

    I suppose that apart from the obvious inventions such as CDs and VCRs, I think that IVF technology which led to the birth of Louise Brown in 1978 was one of the biggest advances - it was such a huge representation for my generation at least for someone who would be the same age as myself to be born. I started a thread on her 40th birthday this year about her.

    Now would that have been featured on Tomorrow's World? I believe that it would probably be featured more like on a series such as Horizon.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Not at all. You did not answer if the treatments were successful.

    Ok I will create the new Cancer thread. How does KILLING CANCER as a title sound? I will transfer my posts to the new thread. You do the same tex.
