In their fight against cancer, some people who win their initial battle may find themselves facing a similar struggle down the road. Researchers at the University of Missouri, including Yves Chabu, an assistant professor in the Division of Biological Sciences, and scientists at Yale University, have discovered that certain gene mutations are responsible for the regrowth of cancer cells following genotoxic therapy treatment, or drugs that cause damage to a cancer cell’s DNA in order to eliminate it from the body.
