Cancer Treatment: Epigenetics
Video

Epigenetics is the science of what turns genes on and off. We know that mutations or damaged genes in our DNA can lead to cancer. Researchers are working on epigenetic drugs that conflict the on/off switches on our genes to change the instructions that cancer cells are following.
