  • [01] We are slowly, but firmly winning the battle with cancer, Professor Anastasiadis tells ANA-MPA

    ANA/MPA---We are winning the battle with cancer slowly, but firmly, as new, more effective treatments, especially those which strengthen the immune system and those that are personalized based on genetic "profiles" of each tumor and the individual patient, follow one another, while at least some types of cancer will gradually just turn into chronic diseases, Panos Anastasiadis, professor and head of the Department of Cancer Biology at Mayo Clinic in the US Florida, said in an interview with ANA-MPA.

    The pioneer Greek biologist became known late August, when, along with Antonios Kourtidis discovered a biological mechanism through which cancer cells can become healthy. The publication in "Nature Cell Biology" journal was considered a step towards that direction, although it is still too early to talk about a new cancer therapy.

    According to Anastasiadis, this discovery will possibly lead to a new cancer therapy in five to ten years. On the scientific research in Greece and the causes that force many Greek scientists to go abroad, he said that there are enough funds for research while there is the problem of bureaucracy.

    Panos Anastasiadis was born in 1964 and graduated from the School of Biology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and got his PhD in cellular and clinical neurobiology from the State Wayne University in Detroit. He did his postdoctoral research at the Hospital "Henry Ford" and the Cancer Center of Vanderbilt University in Tennessee.

    The full interview is available to subscribers at ANA-MPA website.
