    by PressTV

    A leading cancer scientist says the disease will be dominated in the next 50 years.
    Spanish scientist and pharmacist Joan Massague says by sequencing the human genome, doctors are making headway in their efforts to combat cancer. He also pointed out that just like other infections; once we knew the micro-organisms that caused the disease, we were able to discover the antibiotics to combat them. The lead scientist in the study of both cancer metastasis and growth added that since we can understand what's happening in each tumor, we are able to treat it with appropriate therapy.
