A transformational cancer treatment is on the horizon after researchers developed a potentially "game-changing" technique for suppressing tumours. For the first time, scientists have found a way to successfully predict and control the way that cancer cells mutate – manipulating them in ways that make them weaker and easier to treat with existing drugs. Professor Trevor Graham, Professor of Cancer Evolution and Turing Fellow of Queen Mary University of London, who was not involved in the research, said it was an "exciting" study that "may improve outcomes for patients."
