A new study conducted by researchers at the University of Colorado Cancer Center has revealed that the frequency with which certain cancers come back can be brought down to a certain degree by irradiating certain set of lymph nodes near the tumour rather than all of them together. The study was published...

Metastatic cancer is that form of cancer, which breaks up and then grows in other organs of the body, thus making it very difficult to beat the cancer. Recently, researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have discovered that these metastatic cancers, which spread from the original, adapt...

Scientists at UC Riverside are working towards a scenario where diabetes and cancer patients can forget needles and injection and in place of them take pills to control their health conditions. Certain cancer and diabetes drugs dissolve in water so moving them through the intestines, where what drink...

Researchers at McMaster University have discovered that an enzyme, which fuels the growth of a deadly childhood brain cancer, has an important role to play in the course of future treatment. Scientists discovered that when the production of an enzyme known as DHODH is blocked, they could stop the...

Patients suffering from nasopharyngeal cancer are mostly given drugs, which awaken their immune system against the tumour. With the Covid pandemic and subsequent vaccination, it was thought that the process would bring down the success rate of cancer treatments or cause severe side effects. A latest...

Cancerous cells make use of sugar molecules on their surface to stop the attack from the body's immune system. Now, researchers at the University of Basel have discovered methods as to how the effect of this can be neutralized. The immune system has good powers to remove abnormal cells in the body....

Medulloblastoma, which is a malignant brain tumour type, becomes resistant to therapy during the course of time and it can cause a relapse. Research done by scientists at Uppsala University has led to the discovery of a protein, which can make tumour cells resting and insensitive to radiation treatment....

A latest study conducted by researchers at the University of Bristol has revealed that reprogramming our immune cells to kill off cancer cells can be effective in the treatment of the "difficult to cure" skin cancer, melanoma. The study, published in Advanced Science, showcases a new way to remove...

A new study conducted by researchers at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center has revealed that patients with early-stage breast cancer who had a pathologic complete response or PCR to neoadjuvant chemotherapy will be able to skip surgery and get the regular radiation treatment with a lower...

A research conducted by the National Institutes of Health has revealed that women who make use of chemical hair straightening products were at higher risk of developing uterine cancer, compared to those women who do not use these products. The study also found no connection between uterine cancer and...

Research done by scientists at LSU Health New Orleans' Schools of Medicine and Graduate Studies, have discovered that a combination of a novel small inhibitory molecule and an FDA-approved chemotherapy drug stops the growth of triple-negative breast cancer cells synergistically. The findings were published...

Moderna, Inc. (MRNA) and Merck announced on Wednesday that they would develop together and sell a cancer vaccine, which is personalized for specific patients. The Moderna vaccine, which is based on its messenger RNA technology, is being developed in combination with Merck's Keytruda to cure patients...

One of the latest studies done by Northwestern Medicine on mice has revealed that an epigenetics drug, which is at present being used for treating blood cancer and rare sarcomas can halt the growth of bladder cancer cells by making use of the immune system. The drug in question, tazemetostat, was first...

Scientists at the Nanyang Technological University or NTU in Singapore have studied the molecular structure of an important part of our chromosomes known as telomeres, which are important in ageing and cancer. The NTU team found that the building blocks of telomeres are stacked in columns like a spring....

A trial conducted by clinicians at the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center revealed a 20 percent benefit in the present two-year overall survival rate of people suffering from advanced melanoma who received immunotherapy first. The survival rate was 72 percent, when compared to those who...
