University of Glasgow Scientists discover cancer breakthrough

Scientists at the University of Glasgow have developed a new method of killing cancer cells. The method, called Caspase Independent Cell Death (CICD) could be  more effective than current methods/ Currently most anti-cancer therapies (chemotherapy, radiation and immunotherapy) work by killing cancer cells through a process called apoptosis, which activates proteins called caspases, leading to cell death. But in apoptosis, therapies often fail to kill...
