+ - Chemotherapy Can Make Cancer Growth Worse-> 1

Submitted by Diggester
Diggester (2492316) writes "The common treatment for cancer this day and age is chemotherapy but it is a very aggressive remedy that is not always guaranteed to work, and some new studies show it may actually be hurting more than helping.
The new study show chemo causing healthy cells to make a protein called WNT16B, which essentially fuels the cancer cells to keep growing and resist future treatment. This is absolutely the opposite effect wanted by patients and doctors, but this new research doesn't mean chemo should be canceled altogether."
