A new gene therapy technique being developed by researchers at MIT uses micro RNAs - small noncoding RNA molecules that regulate gene expression - to control breast cancer metastasis.

The spread of malignant cells around the body, known as metastasis, is the leading cause of mortality in women with breast cancer. Now, a new gene therapy technique being developed by researchers at MIT is showing promise as a way to prevent breast cancer tumors from metastasizing. The treatment, described in a paper published today in the journal Nature Communications, uses microRNAs - small noncoding RNA molecules that regulate gene expression - to control metastasis...more
