Like I wasn't already on the fence.
Research shows cell's inactive state is critical for effectiveness of cancer treatment
The basic thrust of the story is that research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has uncovered a possible pathway toward maintaining a cell's quiescence.
Why is that important?
Quiescence is a state that allows bone marrow cells to escape the lethal effects of standard cancer treatments.
Sounds like a leg up to me.
It also sounds like I have more reading and thinking to do.
