India’s anti-cancer kit hailed by USFDA

A medical invention (called Cytotron) by a Bengaluru-based scientist, Rajah Vijay Kumar, has been labelled as a “breakthrough device” by The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s Centre for Devices and Radiological Health. Created to cure liver, pancreatic and breast cancer, Cytotron aids in tissue engineering of cancer cells, altering how specific proteins are regulated to stop these cells from multiplying and spreading. It is s intended to cause degeneration of uncontrolled growth of tissues.

Kumar had developed Cytotron at Centre for Advanced Research and Development after nearly 30 years of research into cellular pathways.
