endcancerinus feb03 On the first anniversary of Reignited Cancer Moonshot, the Biden Administration announced a new set of actions that aims at drawing the United States closer to ending cancer. In addition, President Joe Biden also announced his intent to appoint six members to the National Cancer Advisory Board, which plays an important role in guiding the Director of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in settin

Researchers at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory or CSHL have designed the latest software, which correctly infers continental ancestry from tumor genomes. Their work can lead to a better understanding of the connection between cancer and ethnicity, as well as upcoming strategies for early detection...

Lung cancer is one of the most dangerous forms of cancer in the United States and in the world. Present-day cures are not very effective, leaving patients with very few options. A promising new strategy to treat lung cancer has been bacterial therapy, but while this form of treatment has quickly gone...

Researchers from Sweden's Karolinska Institutet in association with the Karolinska University Hospital have found out the root cause of the serious cancer-like disease Langerhans' Cell Histiocytosis or LCH. The findings were published in Science Immunology and will be helpful with finding new, specific...

Researchers from the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center and School of Dentistry have discovered that certain drugs could change the fundamental built of cancer stem cells in mouse models of mucoepidermoid carcinoma, which is a lethal form of salivary gland cancer that currently has no treatment...

In the case of most people detected with cancer, their rates of survival increases when the disease is detected at an early stage. Nowadays, however, only a few types of cancer are screened for. An international study led by researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, revealed that an earlier...

Scientists from the National University of Singapore or NUS have come across a new low-cost method of testing for cancers. Known as the Heatrich-BS assay, this new test sequences clinical samples, which have been heated to isolate cancer-specific signatures found in the patient's blood. The new method...

At the University of Waterloo, researchers have come across a new way of scheduling radiation therapy, which is found to be 22 percent more effective at killing cancer cells than the presently used radiation treatment regimens. While many mathematical studies have studied how to optimize the scheduling...

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....
