Not entirely accurate but this is an open field of research.


DNA repair genes are very crucial in regulating how cells divide and when do they divide.

In many cancerous states, the regulation of DNA repair gene is lost. Even if the DNA repair genes are introduced under their native promoters, the results are still misregulation of these genes. Only when they overexpress these DNA repair genes along with another checkpoint that these cancerous states are somewhat regulated but do not completely abolish the disease.

In conclusion, I will say that there is both a possibility of curing it but there is need for more information to come.
