Leaving other cells in our bodies unharmed.

Computerized First Genome – Scale Model Of Cancer Cell MetabolismScientists are constantly on the hunt for treatments that can selectively to cancer cells, leaving other cells in our bodies unharmed. Prof. Eytan Ruppin have now the Tel Aviv University Blavatnik School of Computer Science and taken Sackler Faculty of Medicine and his colleagues Prof. Eyal Gottlieb of the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research in Glasgow, UK , and Dr. Tomer Shlomi of the Technion in Haifa, a major step forward. You have the first computerized genome-scale model of cancer cell metabolism, which may be used to predict which drugs are lethal to the function of a cancer cell metabolism can create..

Funded this study through a grant of the National Institutes of Health and a training grant from the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine to Jian Xu, lead author of the study Other major participants included Kenneth Zaret from the University of Pennsylvania and Kathrin Plath of the Broad Stem Cell Research Center.

Targeting in the metabolism of the cancer cell itself one of the most effective ways forward. Cancer cells have a special way of metabolizing nutrients for growth and energy. This makes cancer cell metabolism is essentially different from that of a normal cell.The team successfully patented their way Norway and asked patent in Peru, Chile and Argentine, all large potential markets on fish oils. Doing this without twinning and without a of the EUREKA postmark it could difficult to obtain credit and developing would have have taken much longer, said Tilset. Here we have a team where to obtain View all this is functions were paid. .

The partner have developed a process for the purification of fish oil, both in laboratory and in the field, the cost saves 40 % proven as compared to conventional methods of filtration. Their method is in service at the location of Copalis through France.

The RFMO subscriber who developing the method for modular industry be used be used by small businesses which means does not to transport fish oil cause for big sites, that an additional cost of. The partners have promising negotiations with in discussions with potential customers about them industrial units..
