Which means that alone, the gene doesn't cause cancer. However when it groups up with another gene, Myc, tumors will probably form. Luckily, the Pim/Myc mixture isn't an presssing concern in center progenitor cells, meaning you could tweak those cells to overexpress the PIM1 gene without increasing the chance of cancer. That's just what Sussman's group did. They altered mouse center progenitor cells to overexpress PIM1 in specific places within the cell, targeting particular locations with an increase of of the vital Pim enzyme hoping that it would drive back aging-related cardiovascular disease. And it proved helpful. Compared to controls, the mice with overexpressed PIM1 lived and showed stronger cell proliferation much longer.Cardinal Health is at the mercy of additional risks and uncertainties referred to in Cardinal Wellness's Form 10-K, Form 10-Q and Type 8-K reports and exhibits to those reports.
