16-year-old PIO Claims Breast Cancer Cure


Krtin Nithiyanandam; 16-year-old Indian-origin boy from UK’s Surrey has claimed to have found a treatment for the most deadly form of breast cancer. Around 7,500 women each year are diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, a type of disease which does not respond to today’s most effective drugs. The problem lies in whether the cancer cells are “differentiated” or not. Differentiated means they look more like healthy cells and tend to grow and multiply quite slowly, and are less aggressive.


Krtin said the next step in his research, which got shortlisted for the final of the UK-based young scientists programme titled “The Big Bang Fair”, would be to develop a system that would allow the introduction of PTEN and ID4 inhibitors in vivo agencies.
