Molecule that Increases Survival of Stomach Cancer Is Discovered

Posted on February 16, 2016 by Disability Help Group

Stomach cancer is a disease where the cells in the stomach’s tissues become cancerous and begin to rapidly grow and spread. It is a serious condition that can result in the sufferer being unable to work and in need of Social Security disability benefits.

Researchers have discovered a molecule that may increase the chances of survival for those who have been diagnosed with stomach cancer.

It was found that microRNA 451 can enhance the outcome of treatment using chemo-radiotherapy for patients with stomach cancer, increasing their chance of surviving this serious disease.

The study of genes and their response to treatment for various diseases is known as pharmacogenetics. It is paving the way for study in gene mutations for other conditions such as colon and lung cancer.

This genetic mutation found in patients with stomach cancer could prove to be a biomarker for treatment response. Researchers will continue to further study this.

If you have been diagnosed with stomach cancer or any other serious mental or physical condition that prevents you from working and functioning on a daily basis, you may qualify to receive Social Security disability benefits.

You should contact a Social Security disability associate who can evaluate your claim and help determine if you are eligible to receive disability benefits.
