Russian scientists have discovered a protein that inhibits the development of tumors



The specificity of this protein is that it is found in cancer cells that multiply most rapidly and are resistant to drugs. Initially, Hsp70 is found in the intercellular space and triggers an immune response, thanks to which the body fights the tumor.

If you introduce the protein in the form of exosomes – bubbles with a diameter of 30-100 nm, moving inside the cells and released into the intercellular space – the growth of tumors is significantly reduced. This was confirmed by experiments carried out on mice. Animals injected with the Hsp70 protein lived longer, and tumors practically slowed down in development.
