New technology that they have discovered is called CRISPR Genetic Engineering that investigates cancer cells and tracks cancer cells progress.
Cancer cells are notorious for their rapid spread and infection in the body, almost making it impossible to treat without the use of top medical procedures including surgery and chemo-radiation therapy, but doctors and scientists found a way for that. The new technology that they have discovered is called CRISPR Genetic Engineering that investigates cancer cells and track cancer cells progress.
Initially, doctors are concerned with the spread of cancer cells, immediately asking for the person to undergo rigorous medical procedures that are expensive and involves several processes that indeed takes time. Medical science has evolved over the years, and have now been utilizing one of the most powerful technologies present in the world, computers.
Cancer is one of the top killers in human history, as it downright spreads its horror to the very basis of a person, their cells.
CRISPR Technology: Genetic Engineering that now Tracks Cancer Cells
In a study published recently in Science publication last January 21, the researchers coming from different backgrounds have devised a way using the CRISPR Tool, to track cells using the genetic engineering of a person and their cells. This method would now look deep into the basis of a genetic strand and see the cells that are healthy and affected by cancer to see its growth.
Cancer cells are often confined to a certain area it chooses and remains there to infect the cells as it devises for its next phase or move to do, in harming the human body. Doctors fear the process cancer cells do called “metastasizing,” a process wherein it spreads its chaos to other parts of the body, fast-tracking the infection to different parts and forms of cancer.
Metastasizing is dangerous and is considered to be an advanced form of cancer, more deadly than the originally diagnosed illness. The CRISPR Tool that was focused to track these cancer cells, usually its source, will use genetic engineering and map out the “queen bee” of the cancer cells for the doctors to target and strategically remove from the human body.
