Choosing the best treatment for a cancer patient is often an inexact science. Drugs that work well for some patients may not help others, and tumors that are initially susceptible to a drug can later ..
A new Tel Aviv University study finds that combining genetic therapy with chemotherapy delivered to a primary tumor site is extremely effective in preventing breast cancer metastasis. Dr. Noam Shomro..
A team of researchers has discovered that chemoresistant lung cancer cells suppress immune functions and strengthen resistance to chemotherapy by producing interleukin-34 (IL-34) — a type of cytokine...
Researchers working in four labs at UT Southwestern Medical Center have found a chink in a so-called “undruggable” lung cancer’s armor — and located an existing drug that might provide a treatment. ..
Research teams from Karolinska Institutet and Uppsala University have jointly discovered that the usually protective enzyme FBW7 is commonly mutated and inactivated in childhood brain cancers causing ..
Consumption of a bioactive compound from Neem plant could significantly suppress development of prostate...
Oral administration of nimbolide, over 12 weeks shows reduction of prostate tumor size by up to 70 per cent and decrease in tumor metastasis by up to 50 per cent (From left to right) Principal Invest..
MIT researchers have designed nanosensors that can profile tumors and may yield insight into how they will respond to certain therapies. The system is based on levels of enzymes called proteases, whic..
More and more girls are expected to have to confront breast cancer fears as modern genomics technology makes it easier to detect strong risk factors such as inherited BRCA1/2 mutations. But a new stud..
The results of studies involving researchers from the MedUni Vienna and Vienna General Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) show that the effect of immunotherapy on malignant melanoma (black ski..
Iron nanoparticles can activate the immune system to attack cancer cells, according to a study led by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. A mouse study found that ferumoxytol p..
If you survive cancer at young age, then you have a higher risk of becoming unemployed and economically dependent than others, a Norwegian study shows. Maria Winther Gunnes Credit: University of Berg..
Survival rates for elderly patients who received stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) rose from roughly 40 to 60 percent over the past decade, ..
Glioblastomas are incurable malignant brain tumors. Usually the patients affected survive for only a few months. In addition, every tumor is quite different, which makes treatment very difficult. Rese..
UBC researchers have discovered how cancer cells become invisible to the body’s immune system, a crucial step that allows tumours to metastasize and spread throughout the body. “The immune system is..
