pancreatic cancer

Immune-stimulating Drug, with Chemo, Shrinks Pancreas Tumors

The results of an early (phase 1b) clinical trial for pancreatic cancer show that an experimental therapy can control tumors well enough to make...
p73-deficient

New role identified for p73 gene

The p53 gene is a tumor suppressor whose absence or silence contributes to cancer formation. Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center investigators recently defined the role of...
neuroendocrine

UCLA scientists pinpoint cancer gene responsible for neuroendocrine prostate cancer

Study defines a possible target for future treatments for a deadly form of the disease
Cancer drug

Cancer drug could treat blood vessel deformities

A drug currently being trialled in cancer patients could also be used to treat an often incurable condition that can cause painful blood vessel...
Enzyme inhibitor

Enzyme inhibitor looks promising against cancer

The oncoprotein inhibitor TM has been proven effective in suppressing the oncogene c-Myc, which is amplified in around half of all human tumors, and...

Embryo development: Some cells are more equal than others even at...

Embryo development: Some cells are more equal than others even at four-cell stage
Cancer cells

Cancer cells’ ability to self-repair may spawn new treatments

Because they have narrow bodies and no collarbones, mice are able to squeeze through holes as small as a quarter-inch in diameter. Cancer cells similarly...

Nanoparticle-Based Cancer Therapies Shown to Work in Humans

A team of researchers led by Caltech scientists has shown that nanoparticles can function to target tumors while avoiding adjacent healthy tissue in human...
Enzyme inhibitor

Enzyme inhibitor looks promising against many forms of cancer

The oncoprotein inhibitor TM has been proven effective in suppressing the oncogene c-Myc, which is amplified in around half of all human tumors, and...
imaging cells

Stanford scientists develop new technique for imaging cells and tissues under...

A team of Stanford Bio-X scientists developed the first technique for viewing cells and tissues in three dimensions under the skin. The work could improve diagnosis and treatment for some forms of cancer and blindness.
cancer

ROCKs and cancer invasion

Cancers become fatal mostly because of their ability to spread. Cancerous cells migrate from primary tumors and invade neighboring tissues through protrusions called invadopodia. The...
metastasis

Paving the way for metastasis

Cancer cells remodel their environment to make it easier to reach nearby blood vessels.
cellular signaling pathway

Cellular response to tissue stiffening may delay progression of breast cancer

Study identifies cellular signaling pathway that enables breast cells to resist tissue changes during tumor development and is associated with better prognosis
tumors

Why some tumors withstand treatment

Researchers uncover a mechanism that allows cancer cells to evade targeted therapies.

Wilmot Embarks on “first real big test” of Immunotherapy for Lymphoma

UR Medicine’s Wilmot Cancer Institute is part of a national clinical trial for an innovative new therapy that involves engineering a patient’s own immune...
cellular protein

Cellular protein plays important role in aggressive childhood cancer

UCLA-led research shows protein could be target for drugs that combat leukemia
biomarkers

IOM study calls for better evidence for biomarker tests

Biomarker tests that help determine which patients may benefit from molecularly targeted therapies need better evidence and oversight to improve their effectiveness and availability,...

Cancer research: dramatic improvement in the efficiency of gene therapy

The journal Nano Letters reports on innovative technology developed at the Technion: safe delivery of particles that leads to the production of the anti-cancer...
cancer

Southampton experts trial new drug to help immune system fight cancer

Cancer experts at the University of Southampton and Southampton General Hospital are trialling a new drug in head and neck cancer patients that could...
tumours

Tumours contain the seeds of their own destruction

Scientists at UCL have made a groundbreaking discovery in understanding how the genetic complexity of tumours can be recognised and exploited by the immune...
