Researchers have for the first time found a way to curb the growth of oesophageal cancer; using nothing else but sugar!
According to researchers, sugar molecules show a change in pattern, when they form the lining of pre-cancerous cells in the oesophagus. This phenomenon is called Barrett’s dysplasia. The condition helps to therefore, detect the cancerous cells easily and subsequently remove them before they develop beyond irreparable limits of oesophageal cancer.
The findings are of great importance for patients suspected with this disease and those in the early stages. Researchers are banking on the findings to help initiate development of cures for cancer prevention in future.
Barrett’s oesophagus is a pre-cancerous condition with heightened risks of developing into oesophageal cancer needs constant supervision and needs to be supervised and checked at the earliest.
