Chemotherapy isn’t only useless against cancer—it even encourages the tumour to grow, researchers have discovered.
Chemotherapy drugs encourage the production of the protein WNT16B, which promotes cancer cell survival and growth. It interacts with other cancer cells, causing them to grow and invade healthy cells, and resist later treatment, say researchers from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centre in Seattle.
They say that it is “completely worthless” and that cancer sufferers would do better by avoiding the drugs altogether.
