Scientists cracking cancer genetic Code

[quote]Scientists have unlocked the entire genetic code of two of the most common cancers – skin and lung – a move they say could revolutionise cancer care.

Not only will the cancer maps pave the way for blood tests to spot tumours far earlier, they will also yield new drug targets, says the Wellcome Trust team.

Scientists around the globe are now working to catalogue all the genes that go wrong in many types of human cancer. [/quote]

The next generations in countries with Universal Health Care will probably benefit. But in the US — Darwin’s Survival of the Fittest will be the law of the land.
