Researchers at University of Cambridge Report New Data on Cancer Gene Therapy (Cancer mouse models: Past, present and future)

July 28, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cancer Gene Therapy Week -- Current study results on Biotechnology have been published. According to news reporting originating from Cambridge, United Kingdom, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "The development and advances in gene targeting technology over the past three decades has facilitated the generation of cancer mouse models that recapitulate features of human malignancies."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the University of Cambridge, "These models have been and still remain instrumental in revealing the complexities of human cancer biology. However, they will need to evolve in the post-genomic era of cancer research."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In this review we will highlight some of the key developments over the past decades and will discuss the new possibilities of cancer mouse models in the light of emerging powerful gene manipulating tools."
