In the study, researchers from Norway, Japan, Germany and the US investigated the role of the nervous system in cancer.

They found that the vagal nerve contributes to the growth of gastric tumors through the release of a neurotransmitter.

In order to restrict tumor growth, the team began testing methods that would prevent this nerve from signaling to the tumor. “We found that by removing the effect of the nerve, the stem cells in the cancer tumor are suppressed, leading to cancer treatment and prevention,” says Prof. Duan Chen, of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
