Bile duct study uncovers cancer triggers

Scientists have identified a molecule that drives the development of bile duct cancer.

The research in mice sheds new light on what triggers the disease and how the illness progresses.

Experts say that further research will be needed but the findings could eventually reveal opportunities to improve diagnosis and develop new therapies.

Growth signals

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh focused on a family of molecules called Notch, here which are critical for the formation of bile ducts as the liver develops in an embryo.
