Cancer is a complex disease. Therefore, it has failed to have any permanent cure as yet. Researchers and scientists are trying really hard to develop a cure for cancer. This will increase the quality of life of the patients. The lifespan of the patients will also be increased as a cure to cancer is developed.
Cancer Cure: How is Skin Cancer developed?
There is dreadful type of skin cancer named Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa (RDEB). Epidermolysis Bullosa is a genetic disorder.
Because of this disease the skin of the patient becomes highly vulnerable. Because of the disorder, a simple scratch can be the reason of blisters. The blisters affect the skin of the patient adversely.
People who have this disorder have great chances of developing skin cancer. This type of skin cancer is known as Squamous Cell Carcinoma. The information is according to Genetics Home Reference.
Recently, a team of researchers are studying this skin cancer. They are trying to come up with a possible cure for Squamous Cell Carcinoma.
This is important to be discovered. Because children who have RDEB, develop skin cancer that is life threatening. This happens as they grow old. Therefore, it often becomes fatal for them.
Cancer Cure: Is there any scope of finding a cure?
A study was published this month regarding Squamous Cell Carcinoma. It was published by The Clinical Cancer Research via Science Daily. The study confirms that a scientist at Jefferson Health has found a cure for this type of skin cancer
Health from Sidney Kimmel Cancer center has found a treatment that has the potential for curing Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Moreover, the clinical trial will start this year. In this, the drug treatment will be tested.
How is Squamous Cell Carcinoma developed?
Mostly, this type of cancer is caused because of the genetic disorder RDEB. But if a person is exposed to sun in extremes then too it is developed. However, it can be cured in this situation. But, it is only when it is diagnosed at an early stage.
