Singapore scientists have developed a synthetic protein fragment that stops cancer cells from dividing and thus destroys them. This alternative way to treat cancer produces fewer side effects and should be more successful than traditional medications. It targets cancer cells only and thus is less debilitating than radiotherapy and chemotherapy which tends to destroy healthy cells as well. The research group hopes to have their product commercially available within five years. They are currently developing a synthetic protein to target genital warts and cervical cancer.
