Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by abnormal and uncontrolled growth of cells that has spread to other parts of the body. There are about 200 different cell types in the human body. These normally grow and multiply as and when the body needs them. However, sometimes cells or abnormal cells grow and multiply uncontrollably when they should not. These lumps of cells are called tumors. When tumors spread or invade nearby tissues, they become cancerous. Cancerous cells can use blood vessels and the lymphatic system to travel to distant places in the body where they can form new tumors, in what is known as metastasis. Although cancerous cells are different from normal cells, they still derive from normal cells. This makes the task of targeting only them, and thereby minimizing treatment side-effects, very difficult.
Current efficacy for cancer treatments depends on the type of cancer and the stage at which it is detected. Metastasized cancers are difficult to treat. Because of the diversity in cancers, a multiplicity of diverse treatment approaches need to be applied. At Recellgene, our many departments and wide expertise are leveraged to deploy a plethora of complementary approaches to cure many types of cancers, even at late stages.
