- 3D tumours that disintegrate within a few days thanks to the action of a well-known Omega-3 (DHA, found mainly in fish) - this is the exceptional discovery by University of Louvain (UCLouvain) researchers, published in the prestigious scientific journal Cell Metabolism
- Hungry for fatty acids, tumour cells in acidosis gorge themselves on DHA but are unable to store it correctly and literally poison themselves. The result? They die.
- What’s so original about the discovery? The result of a collaboration between bioengineers specialising in nutrition and cancer specialists, it creates new possibilities for fighting cancer
