Scientists discover the root cause of rapid spread of cancer in the body

Scientists have identified the root cause of the spread of cancer inside the body and this discovery will be helpful in the treatment of this deadly disease in the near future.

Experts from Stanford University in the US have identified parts of DNA in a study that help the spread of cancer.

Research has shown that these small parts of DNA also help the tumor to resist drugs.

These sections are named extrachromosomal DNA (ecDNA).

Researchers said that the discovery of these parts of DNA is the most important development and we believe that these parts cause serious severity of cancer, if we block their activities, it will also be possible to prevent the spread of the disease.

According to the researchers, we discovered that ecDNA acts as cancer-causing genes that separate themselves from a person’s chromosome and begin to wreak havoc.

The study found that ecDNA causes tumors to spread unexpectedly rapidly or the disease becomes resistant to medications.

Researchers said that now we know why this happens.

Why do some people talk during sleep?

He added that due to the resistance of the disease against medicines, cancer gets a chance to raise its head once again.

The researchers hoped that once the cause of the problem is known, it will be easier to find a method that can eliminate ecDNA in patients.
