Ohio team targets oncogenes; Rabbit virus used to deliver cancer drugs to the brain; New approach to antibody discovery;

> Scientists at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center are offering new approaches for treating cancer by blocking overactive cancer-promoting oncogenes while amping up the activity of sluggish tumor-suppressor genes. The findings were reported in the journals Nature Communications and Nature Genetics. Release
