This article is about G alpha q uveal melanoma researchers have found a plant-based compounds that is helping to eradicate this type of cancer. By using A member of the prim rose family of plant a compound they derive from it is known as FR900359 or (FR). When this melanoma signals off for a brief moment this compound encapsulates the cancer cells and begins to destroy them given the chance.This compound not only stops the growth of the cancer cells but also helps those cells to re-activate their normal growth in the pigment not with the cancerous cells
- Uveal or ocular melanoma represents about 3 to 5 percent of melanoma cancer cases.
- Skin melanoma and uveal melanoma are different because skin melanoma is caused by Ultraviolet light.
- Scientist have been studying signaling molecules for over a decade but little to no progress has been made.
“A new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis shows that a natural plant compound shuts down uveal melanoma cell growth in human tumor cells grown in the lab.”
