British and American scientists jointly found that salt may kill cancer cells

researchers said that cells in the human body usually strive to maintain a stable ion concentration in the cell membrane. Once this balance is broken, cells will apoptosis. However, when cells become cancerous, the transmission mode of ions in the cell membrane will change, so as to prevent apoptosis. In the new research, scientists have overcome this problem by using sodium ion and chloride ion synthesis technology.

British and American scientists jointly found that salt may kill cancer cells

it is reported that a new study published in the British Journal found that injecting salt into cancer cells can make cancer cells apoptosis. Salt is expected to become a new generation of sharp weapon to effectively fight cancer.

in the new study, researchers from the University of Southampton in the UK and the University of Texas in the United States have developed a new molecule that can kill cancer cells by carrying sodium ions and chloride proteins into cells. For the first time, scientists used the name & ldquo; Synthetic ion transporters & rdquo; The protein induces cancer cells & ldquo; Suicide & rdquo;. New research has found that chloride transporters can work closely with sodium channels in cell membrane to make salt flow into cells, leading to cell self destruction.

However, while killing cancer cells, this technology will also kill healthy cells by mistake, which is a new topic to be solved urgently.
