Researchers at the Sloan Kettering Institute have recently discovered a new immune cell "solider", which could be used well in immunotherapy, thus offering help to people who do not respond well to the treatment. This treatment is expected to bridge the gap between people who do not respond to the...

Researchers at the University of Michigan have developed a non-invasive sound technology, which disintegrates the liver tumors in rats and destroys once and for all the cancer cells in the body and activates the immune system to stop the further spread of liver cancer in the body. This discovery is very...

Research conducted by scientists at Newcastle University has shown that exercise causes the cancer-fighting protein interleukin-6 to be released into the bloodstream, which helps to repair the DNA of damaged cells. The findings, which were published in the International Journal of Cancer, shows the...

Worldwide, cigarette smoking is considered to be the main reason behind lung cancer but only a small percent of smokers fall prey to the disease. A study done by scientists at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and published online in Nature Genetics reveals that certain smokers have in-built mechanisms,...

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....

A recent study by researchers at the French National Institute for Health and Medical Research or Inserm and Sorbonne Paris Nord University, France has revealed that artificial sweeteners may not after all be beneficial for the human body. According to the study published in PLOS Medicine, certain artificial...

A privately-owned energy and infrastructure company, Michel's Corp. is donating $15 million to MCW Cancer Research Center for the research of choroid plexus carcinoma, a rare brain cancer. Sophie Michels, a member of the family, was diagnosed with the cancer back in 2011 and it was her successful treatment...

If one is to make a list of the most difficult to treat types of cancer, pancreatic cancer would find itself in the top spot. That, however, may not be the case in the near future as scientists at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine have developed a new strategy, which brings down cancer metastases...

Irradiation using fast protons is found to be a more effective and less invasive method to treat cancer, when compared to X-rays. However, modern proton therapy needs large particle accelerators, so cancer researchers are looking into alternative accelerator concepts like laser systems to speed up the...

The p53 protein in our body protects the human cells from cancer disease and is helpful for different types of cancer treatments. The issue with the p53 protein is that it breaks down fast in the cell. A solution to this problem was published in the journal Structure by researchers at the Karolinska...

A study published online in a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research has revealed that in cases of melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, the cancerous cells, which have spread to the brain make use of amyloid beta to survive there. Amyloid beta is a protein, which is known...

Researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine have developed a new and highly efficient approach for bringing down the number of deaths caused due to cancer. They have devised a strategy to overcome the serious problem of the ability of cancer cells to survive the onslaught of chemotherapy drugs,...

One of the most common forms of cancer is multiple myeloma, which affects the plasma cells, a type of immune cell found in the bone marrow. This form of cancer weakens the immune system, leads to kidney damage and causes weak bones. With the advancement in treatment, the cancer gets cured but the chances...
