A Technique To Destroy Cancer Cells Within Three Days

A new study has further raised the hope for treating cancer faster due to the easy technique which alters the structure of chromatin in cancer cells thus destroying them faster and in an easier way.

Now chromatin is formed from DNA that are wrapped around proteins and called Histones. Chromatin is responsible for regulating the genes that are switched on and off besides packaging the genetic code into the cell nucleus properly. In technical language you may put chromatin as the software if the genetics is termed as hardware.

A Technique To Destroy Cancer Cells Within Three Days

Though chromatin works for cancer cells in a way because it aids in their evolution and helps them adapt to cancer therapies, ultimately helping them survive and grow.
Cancer being a complex condition, individual behavior of genes does not make a difference but it all actually depends on the complex interplay of the thousands of genes. Hence, the researchers focused on chromatin for fighting cancer.

They developed the technique called Partial Wave Spectroscopic (PWS) microscopy, which allows real time monitoring of chromatin in living cells. They used this technique in cultured cancer cell and found that chromatin helps cancer cells evade treatment due to the specific packaging density linked with gene expression.

The more disordered and heterogenous the chromatin packaging density, the more ordered and conservative it is, the more are the chances of cancer cell death while responding to chemotherapy. Thus as per the discovery made, the researchers came to hypothesis that changing the chromatin structure and making it orderly can actually help in increasing cancer cells treatment vulnerability. Further study made them understand the fact that it was possible to modify the chromatin structure in the nucleus of the cancer cells by electrolytes.

The researchers tried combining two drugs one Celecoxib used for pain relief and Digoxin used for treating fibrillation as well as heart failure. Referring this combination as chromatin protection therapeutics (CPTs), they tested it on cancer cells in the lab with chemotherapy and the results according to the researchers were remarkable.

The researchers have also successfully replicated the finding in seven different cancer kinds which is a ray of hope in the cancer treatment.

How To Deal With Canker Sores

A type of ulcer, Canker sores in the mouth in white or grey color can be painful at times. They mostly occur on the softer parts of the mouth like the lips, cheeks and tongue. Scientifically termed as recurrent aphtous stomatitis or RAS, it has the tendency to reappear once subsided many times.
Canker sores generally do not require any treatment and can heal within a week or two. The severe form of Canker known as RAS can cause larger ulcers with scarring and can last upto a couple of weeks.

Canker Sores

Here are a few tips on dealing with Canker sores at home -
Mouth Rinse – Using a mouth wash with antiseptic properties can help numbing the mouth and prevent infection.

Brushing – Using a soft toothbrush can help dealing with canker sores. Brushing teeth on a daily basis and maintaining good oral hygiene

Vitamin B 12 – A study has found that Vitamin B12 supplements can help reduce canker sore pain as well as reduced the occurrence as well as reoccurence.

Chamomile tea – Chamomile tea together with honey can help reduce the inflammation and pain caused by canker sores, though it is not clinically proven. You can simply soak the chamomile tea bag in warm water and then apply it to the ulcer directly.

Aloe vera – Aloe vera gel helps in reducing inflammation and pain caused due to the condition though its not clinically proven but in general its deemed as safe by NCCIH.

Cloves – Placing a cotton wool ball soaked in clove oil after cleaning your mouth with a mouth was or sea salt can help in relieving you from the pain and inflammation caused by the condition

Numbing Mouth – Numbing your mouth ulcer with the help of ice cubes can help in relieving the pain and discomfort caused.

Avoiding Certain Foods – When suffering from the conditions intake for spicy, acidic or salty foods can aggravate the pain and stop healing so it is advisable to avoid these foods as far as possible.

OTC Relief products – A lot of gels and patches are already available over the counter to help deal with canker sores effectively.

Apparently, following good dental hygiene is a great way to avoid canker sores primarily, but if it still occurs you may try out the following home based remedies to get relief and faster healing.
