Arresting movement of cancer cells could be an effective way of therapy
A drug to prevent cancer cells from spreading - short science articles

Researchers have shown that it could be possible to freeze cancer cells and then kill them. The drug named KBU2046 has shown effectiveness to inhibit cell mobility in human cell models of solid cancers like prostate, breast, colon and lung. This drug engages with the heat shock proteins, the cleaners of a cell. The drug binds to these cleaner proteins which stop the movement of the cells. This could be a new way of treating cancer since several drugs solely concentrate on killing the cancer cells but the majority of cancer mortality is due to metastasis of these cells to distant organs.
