Embryo Have Cancer Cells Inherited Risk from Mother

Researchers proven there have possibility embryo get cancer cells inherited from their mother even amount of this cases is very rare. Whereas, according to theory, body immunity system could be prevented cancer cells entranced to embryo blood circulation system through placenta. BBC New sites that quoted England researchers team study result from National Academy of Sciences on Tuesday October 13, 2009 mentioned there are 17 mother and their child cases suffering the same cancer (usually leukemia or melanoma). This research focused on a mother and child that suffering leukemia. Researchers used genetic finger print checking technique to proven embryo leukemia cells come from their mother. The result, both leukemia cells have the same cancer cell that already mutated. Embryo immunity system was had no ability to recognized that cancer cells as stranger thing. This impacted when cancer cells entranced there is nothing resistance at all. Researcher Team Leader, Professor Mel Greave from Institute of Cancer Research said that cancer cells can be across placenta and easily entranced to embryo because considered not dangerous by body immunity system. “But this case is very rare so the possibility cancer cells inherited to embryo from their mother still little,” says Greave.
