A latest study done by researchers at the Medical College of Georgia and the Georgia Cancer Center at Augusta University has revealed that a large number of people who have overcome cancer are living in poverty and this is taking a drastic toll on their physical and mental health. With the help...

The environment in which cancer cells grow does not have enough nutrients so the cancerous cells overcome this challenge by changing their metabolism to make use of proteins as an alternative "food." It is using this mechanism that an international group of scientists identified the protein LYSET as...

During the past few decades, more and more people under the age of 50 are developing cancer. Recent research done by the Brigham and Women's Hospital revealed that cases of early onset cancers like that of cancers of the breast, colon, esophagus, kidney, liver, and pancreas has significantly risen all...

bidencancer sep12 On Monday, on the sixtieth anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's Moonshot speech at Rice University, President Joe Biden will deliver another American moonshot address. Speaking at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston at 4 PM ET, Biden will discuss his bold vision for eradicating cancer from the United States. Biden will announce new actions that his Administration

A latest study published in Science Translational Medicine has brought to light new cure for chronic pain with a connection to lung cancer. Conducted by researchers at the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences or IMBA, Harvard Medical School, and Boston Children's Hospital,...

A study published in Radiology, a journal of the Radiological Society of North America or RSNA has revealed that breast tissue features seen in MRI are connected with potential second breast cancer risk in women, who have a history of breast cancer. Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers...

Researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine have developed a latest pre-clinical model for thymic cancer, which gives an understanding as to how a common mutation present in the thymic epithelial tumors leads to their formation. The researchers are of the opinion that this model can contribute to the development...

In advanced cases of kidney cancer, the disease is not limited to the organ itself, instead it moves on to the largest vein in the body, the inferior vena cava or IVC, which carries blood out of the kidneys back to the heart. With the kidney getting affected with cancer, there are chances that the cancerous...

As per a new study, researchers have discovered a signaling cascade through which inborn errors in metabolism lead to dangerous neuroendocrine tumors in the adrenal glands. This discovery lays out how wrong metabolism due to mutations in a key enzyme called succinate dehydrogenase B disorientates a normal...

For many years, cancer cell metabolism has always been a paradox for scientists. The latest work from researchers at Washington University in St. Louis reveals that it might not be such an anomaly after all. Glucose, which is a common sugar in food, is one of the most important nutrients in the body....

Researchers at UT Southwestern have identified a molecular pathway, which is responsible for the spread of glioblastoma cancer to surrounding tissue in the brain, and also an existing drug that curbed the tumor growth in animal models. The findings, published in Nature Cell Biology, have led to a clinical...

monicabertagnolli aug11 President Joe Biden has appointed world-renowned surgical oncologist Dr. Monica Bertagnolli as the new Director of the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Dr. Bertagnolli will be the 16th American and the first woman to lead the country's largest biomedical research institute.

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...
