Scholarly journals also referred to as Academic journals. These journals are regularly published journals which are related to a specific academic discipline. Scholarly articles are written by scientist or researchers based on authentic, innovative and native research done by the scholar. Scholars publish their articles to communicate and share their research. These journals are usually understood and accessed by students, academicians or experts from the related field as the content will be highly specific and not grasped and followed by all. These are subjected to peer-review by editorial board members who are highly qualified in that particular field.
The body is made up of trillions of living cells. These cells grow, divide, and die in an orderly fashion. This process is tightly regulated and controlled by the DNA machinery within the cell. In a fetus, baby or a child, cells divide rapidly to allow for growth. After the person becomes an adult, most cells divide only to replace worn-out or dying cells or to repair injuries. When cells of the body at a particular site start to grow out of control, they may become cancerous. Cancer cell growth is different from normal cell growth. Instead of dying, cancer cells continue to grow and form new, abnormal cells. In addition, these cells can also invade other tissues, a property that normal cells do not possess. DNA is in every cell and directs all of the cell's actions such as growth, death and protein synthesis. When DNA in a normal cell is damaged, the cell either repairs the damage or dies. In cancer cells, the damaged DNA is not repaired, and the cell does not die. Instead, it gives rise to more of the abnormal cells containing abnormal DNA. These new cells all have the same defective DNA of the original cancer cell.
