Breast cancer is the deadliest disease found in women.

Dr.Suthida Chukiatsiri from the Science Department of Kasetsart university, in collaboration with Dr.Kanjana Thammanu, SLRI beamline scientist, have conducted research with Synchrotron Infared Microscopy technique to study the transformation of breast cancer cell typed MCF7 (Human Breast Adenocarcinoma cell line).

This cell can be restrained by the protein extract of silkworm's Chrysalis ; Non-mulberry silkworm; Eri silkworm, and Samia ricin. The cancer cell is found to be dead as a result.

Although this research is still under experiment, it is a solid kickstart to cure cancer in the near future.
