LONDON (Reuters) (date unknown) - A hormone used by plants to control their growth is being harnessed by British researchers to develop new targeted treatments for cancer, researchers said.  "We're really excited that a common or garden plant hormone could fulfill one of the ultimate aims of cancer research, by providing a drug that only attacks cancerous cells and leaves the rest of the body untouched," Wardman, said.
