Israeli scientists and researchers have been at the forefront of extensive studies on cancer and cancer treatment over the past several decades. With the disease being the main cause of death in Israel, universities, medical centers, hospitals, and labs have taken the lead in developing innovative care plans and undertaking sophisticated research to help advance understanding and knowledge of cancer, of which there are over 100 types, and for which there is no known cure.
Israeli biotech startups too have been on the cutting-edge of innovative solutions for early detection and clinical pathology systems.
Although hundreds of projects and trials are ongoing, here are five recent developments in cancer research and treatment from Israel so far this year.
1. Israeli researchers kill a cancerous tumor with synthetic cells
Israeli scientists at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have successfully treated a cancerous tumor, eradicating its cancer cells using a “nano-factory” – a synthetic cell that produces anti-cancer proteins within the tissue, the Technion announced in February.
