Stunting cell ‘antennae’ could make cancer drugs work again

Scientists have uncovered a completely new way to make cancers sensitive to treatment - by targeting antenna-like structures on cells. Their study found that drug-resistant cancer cells have more and longer antennae than those which are killed by treatment. Blocking the growth of antennae reactivated a range of cancer treatments that had stopped working, the team at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, found. The researchers identified changes in cellular
