The latest study done by researchers at the University of California, Davis, and the University of Washington has revealed that future treatments for advanced cancer can work by sticking cancer cells in place and preventing their spread around the body. The study shows how an antibody strengthens the...

A recent study conducted in mice by researchers at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden has revealed that bringing down the temperature will make it harder for cancer cells to grow. The study, which was published in the journal Nature, found that chilly temperatures activate heat-producing brown fat that...

Glioblastoma is a rare but dangerous type of brain cancer, which is very difficult to cure. Even after surgeons remove the tumors, it resurfaces very fast and chemotherapy and radiation therapy have limited effects. About half of patients suffering from this cancer die within 18 months. However, now...

Colorectal tumors are full of white blood cells, but as to whether these cells help or fight against the cancer is still under debate. While certain studies have shown that white blood cells stop tumor growth and fight colorectal cancer, there is equal evidence to show that white blood cells contribute...

For patients suffering from different forms of cancer like lymphoma, multiple myeloma, or certain types of leukemia, treatment using chimeric antigen receptor T cells or CAR T cells is sometimes the last hope for overcoming the cancer. The treatment involves taking T cells from the patient's blood and...

University of Central Florida researchers have developed a new method to find out metastatic cancer cells in the body, which going ahead can help identify cancer in the early stages itself and give them different treatment options. In the latest issue of PLOS ONE, Annette Khaled's research lab reported...

Cancer affecting the lungs is one of the deadliest forms of cancer and it causes around 1.8 million deaths worldwide. While treatment for lung cancer has seen major breakthroughs, a new study conducted by the Edith Cowan University has found methods to improve the treatment. Immunotherapy is an important...

In a study published in Nature Materials, an international team of researchers led by engineers at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities found that cancer cells can move toward certain mechanical "sweet spot" environments. This study gave new information as to how cancer cells invade the human body....

Apoptosis, which is a type of programmed cell death or PCD, is known as biological process by which unwanted cells are removed in multi-cellular organisms. In many cells, certain proteins known as "caspases" led to apoptosis. This process is especially important for the treatment of cancer, as inducing...

New research conducted by scientists on 11,000 cancer patients has revealed 42 hereditary genes, which pre-dispose individuals to many mutations that correlate with a greater chance of developing cancer. The research can lead to new personalized prevention and/or early detection methods, which study...

Researchers have discovered that dysfunction concerning a unique type of thymocyte cell, which is found in small amounts in all people may be the reason why some people develop a type of leukemia known as T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) that affects more than 6,000 Americans each year. Researchers...

When tumors grow in the human body, they develop around themselves a thick, hard-to penetrate wall of molecular defenses. It is very difficult for drugs to get past these walls. Recently, scientists at UT Southwestern have developed nanoparticles, which can break down the hard-to get past barriers around...

New research conducted by scientists at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden has found out that resistance to treatment for a deadly form of kidney cancer is related to low mitochondrial content in the cell. When researchers increased the mitochondrial content with the help of an inhibitor, the cancer...

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers affecting mostly women all across the world. Every year, around 2.3 million people become prey to this disease. If the cancer is detected early, patients respond positively to treatment. Things get complicated if the cancer has already metastasized, which...

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is a cancer that affects large number of children. In this form of cancer, the T-ALL type of leukemia, which comes from early T lineage cells has a bad prognosis, when compared to B-lineage ALL. The prognosis for T-ALL, which has relapsed in children is not very good and...
