Stem cell scientists are again in the headlines by making a breakthrough research in the field of Bowel cancer.

Researchers of the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough along with the scientists from Durham University and North East England Stem Cell Institute (NESCI) discovers a new test which claims to differentiate a normal tissue from a tissue containing virulent strain of Bowel disease.

The discovery of the new test was done by tracking 700 patients tissues. Their result concluded that Protein Lamin A which is found in chromosome 1 can help detecting the persons having chances of developing more virulent strain of bowel disease.

They also say that person showing strains should be given additional chemotherapy so as to increase the chance of recovery.

Bowel cancer is the cancerous growth that effects the colon, rectum and appendix. It is the third most common form of cancer and second leading cause of cancer-related death in Western world.
