Melbourne: Australian researchers have created a new chemical that imitates a melanoma-killing virus, a biomedical engineering advance that could lead to developing a cream to treat skin cancer in future. Researchers at Melbourne based RMIT University said that the chemical was effective in destroying the cancer cells without harming normal skin cells. Lead investigator Dr Taghrid Istivan said the preliminary research would hopefully lead to developing a cream that could treat early stage melanoma. "We found it is active against cancer cells, against melanoma, but it doesn`t harm the normal cells," she said.
