Proteins seek, attack, destroy tumor cells in bloodstream

Using white blood cells to ferry potent cancer-killing proteins through the bloodstream virtually eliminates metastatic prostate cancer in mice, Cornell researchers have confirmed. Their...

Quickly identifying tumors by using antibodies

Antibodies combat viruses and bacteria. They also attach themselves to cancer cells – in a typical, characteristic way. Fraunhofer scientists are using this property...

Pinpoint targeting instead of shotgun approach

Integrins help cells communicate with and adapt to their environment. Also cancer cells depend on their properties to survive and spread throughout the body....

Scientists discover how cancer cells escape blood vessels

Scientists at MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital have discovered how cancer cells latch onto blood vessels and invade tissues to form new tumors —...

New test may improve diagnosis, treatment of gastrointestinal cancers

University of Chicago researchers have developed a method to diagnose pancreatic cancer earlier in patients. By collecting samples from the portal vein—which carries blood...

Evolutionary dynamics of tumor cells

How do evolutionary mechanisms promote the development of cancer, in particular the resurgence of tumor growth following initially successful therapy? A new Collaborative Research...

Detecting Cancer Cells before They Form Metastases

KIT Researchers Develop a New Method to Detect Cancer Cells in the Blood before They Settle in the Tissue and Form a New Tumor

‘Super natural killer cells’ destroy lymph node tumors

Cornell biomedical engineers have developed specialized white blood cells – dubbed “super natural killer cells” – that seek out cancer cells in lymph nodes...
