Initial research done by doctors at the University of Michigan Health Rogel Cancer Center has found that the oral medication zanubrutinib was very helpful for patients suffering from a slow-growing type of cancer known as marginal zone lymphoma. Among the 20 patients who took the clinical trial,...

Inflammatory cell death is a critical part of the body's immune response. When the cell death happens in controlled levels, then everything is normal but when it is reaches uncontrollable levels, it can cause dangerous levels of inflammation in organs and tissues, which are otherwise very healthy. Researchers...

Research conducted by the McGill University has found higher instances of lung cancer and brain tumors among people who have been exposed to wildfires. Researchers studied over two million Canadians over a time frame of 20 years to arrive at this conclusion. The study is the first of its kind to examine...

Researchers at the Stevens Institute of Technology are in the process of developing a low-cost handheld machine, which can bring down the instances of unnecessary biopsies in skin cancer cases by half. The handheld device will also offer dermatologists and other doctors' easy access to laboratory-grade...

Researchers at the Massachusetts General Hospital or MGH have developed a treatment method, which can bring the life-saving benefits of chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy or CAR T to patients suffering from acute myeloid leukemia or AML.

Research done at the Tel Aviv University has proven that a drug delivery system based on lipid nanoparticles can make use of RNA to control the resistance shown by cancer cells to both chemotherapy and immunotherapy forms of treatment. The results were published in the scientific journal Advanced Materials...

Latest clinical research has shown that lamivudine, a reverse transcriptase inhibitor widely used in HIV therapy, could stop the spread of cancer in around 25 percent of patients with fourth-line metastatic colorectal cancer. The findings of the research were published in Cancer Discovery and offer new...

A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Surgery is the first in the United States to show that a living-donor liver transplant is a feasible option for patients who have systemically controlled colorectal cancer and liver tumors, which cannot be removed by surgery....
