Cloning experiment shows cancer reversible

    BEIJING, Aug. 2 (Xinhuanet) -- A cloning experiment may show that the human body can reverse cancer. This shows that malignancy is not the inevitable fate of a cancer cell.

 กก US researchers cloned mouse embryos from a melanoma skin cancer cell, and created healthy adult mice using some of the cloned cancer cells. CRIENGLISH.com reported Monday.

    They believe this shows that malignancy is not the inevitable fate of a cancer cell.

    The finding, published in the journal Genes and Development, points to a new way to treat cancer.

    Dr. Rudolf Jaenisch of the Whitehead Institute at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, one of the country's leading experts in cloning, says drugs that target the cancer may prove to be a key in treating a range of cancers.
