Apoptosis is the natural process God designed to help the body protect itself from cancer. Insulin and IGF-1 block apoptosis in cancerous cells, which allows cancer to gain a foothold within the body.
Over the last several decades, molecular biology has gradually been unraveling the way in which the body’s cells work. “Signal transduction” refers to the way in which cellular proteins undergo small and usually reversible changes in their structure to induce alterations in cell behavior.
The genetic material of cancer cells is typically altered in ways that over-activate intracellular signal transduction mechanisms; specifically, the ones related to the malignant behavior of cancer. Some of these mechanisms prevent the process of apoptosis (programmed cell death) as well as support cellular multiplication, tissue invasion and metastasis (the spread of cancer to distant organs) and resistance to being killed by chemotherapy or radiation.
Cell Signal Transduction Therapy seeks to regulate the signaling pathways in cancer cells to make them easier to control or kill.
