Vitamin C may help genes to kill blood cancer stem cells – ETHealthworld.com

Posted: at 4:49 pm

Representational image Washington D.C. : A study has recently revealed that vitamin C may tell faulty stem cells in the bone marrow to mature and die normally, instead of multiplying to cause blood cancers. According to researchers, certain genetic changes are known to reduce the ability of an enzyme called TET2 to encourage stem cells to become mature blood cells, which eventually die, in many patients with certain kinds of leukemia. Continue reading
