Researchers at the National Cancer Institute or NCI may have decoded the reason why many non-smokers are falling sick with lung cancer. Their research has shown that in people with no smoking history, the cancerous cells grow and multiply from the accumulation of mutations caused by natural processes...

Researchers at the McGill University have identified proteins, which fuel the growth of cancer stem cells. In the case of aggressive brain cancers like glioblastoma, the main cause is a particular protein known as galectin. According to researchers, identifying and suppressing this particular protein,...

Researchers at the Duke Cancer Institute have discovered that breast cancer cells make use of cholesterol to build resistance to stress, thus making them immune to treatment as they move away from their original position. The research went into depth to understand the mechanism by which the breast cancer...

NXP800, an investigational cancer drug that inhibits the Heat Shock Factor-1 developed by the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) in London, is going to enter the phase I clinical trials. The drug has shown promise in the pre-clinical stages by stopping cancer growth in culture and also regressed...

Research done at the Linköping University in Sweden has revealed that an in-use drug, 5-azacytidine, can be used as a targeted therapy for children suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

The researchers,...

According to a work published in Nature Biomedical Engineering magazine, bio-engineers at the University of California San Diego are working to develop a safe and effective way of treating cancerous tumors, using the chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy, which is expected to abate the growth...

North Carolina Scientists have come up with a new treatment method to cure mast cell cancer by mutating the messenger RNA (mRNA). The process, named Frameshifting, will reduce the number of mast cells by changing the mRNA before it can instruct the production of c-KIT gene that causes rapid increase. According...
