A new molecule with anti-cancer and anti-metastatic properties has just been discovered by teams from CNRS, CEA, Institut Curie and Inserm, in collaboration with Australian and English researchers. This anticancer molecule acts on the cells resistant to conventional chemotherapy through an entirely new mechanism of action. The latter not only target cell multiplication but also their mobility and thus prevent metastasis.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
