Genetic remodeling in tumor formation

February 7, 2022

Via: ScienceDaily

Cancerous tumors are made up of rapidly growing, abnormally shaped, cells that can infiltrate and destroy healthy tissues, travel to other parts of the body, and form additional tumors. In part because of its rapid and invasive nature, cancer remains […]

Researchers reduce breast cancer metastasis in animal models by modifying tumor electrical properties

January 11, 2022

Via: ScienceDaily

In normal cells, electrical voltage patterns provide a blueprint for orderly growth. But with cancer, the opposite happens. Marked by a breakdown in the normal electrical patterns generated by the cells, they lose their specialized functions, start expanding into a […]

Noninvasive brain biopsy shows improved sensitivity in tumor detection

November 12, 2021

Via: ScienceDaily Health

Glioblastomas are aggressive brain tumors that are commonly diagnosed through a risky and invasive surgical biopsy. A team of researchers led by Hong Chen at Washington University in St. Louis has developed a noninvasive diagnostic method that may one day […]

Deep learning provides a better estimate of breast cancer risk

September 7, 2021

Via: The Medical News

Compared with commonly used clinical risk factors, a sophisticated type of artificial intelligence (AI) called deep learning does a better job distinguishing between the mammograms of women who will later develop breast cancer and those who will not, according to […]

Researchers introduce novel type of click reaction for living cells and organisms

July 2, 2021

Via: The Medical News

Increasing our understanding of cellular processes requires information about the types of biomolecules involved, their locations, and their interactions. This requires the molecules to be labeled without affecting physiological processes (bioorthogonality). This works when the markers are very quickly and […]

Childhood cancer discovery may stop tumor spread before it starts

June 1, 2021

Via: ScienceDaily Health

A new discovery in Ewing sarcoma, an aggressive and often fatal childhood cancer, has uncovered the potential to prevent cancer cells from spreading beyond their primary tumour site. The breakthrough provides new insight into what triggers the process that allows […]

Stem cells establish contacts with nerves in tissue regeneration and cancer progression

March 23, 2020

Via: The Medical News

Researchers at the University of Zurich show that different stem cell populations are innervated in distinct ways. Innervation may therefore be crucial for proper tissue regeneration. They also demonstrate that cancer stem cells likewise establish contacts with nerves. Targeting tumor […]

Study shows how alterations in cellular degradation hubs can lead to cancer

March 17, 2020

Via: The Medical News

Cancer cells grow and divide in an uncontrolled manner. A new study from Uppsala University now shows how alterations in a cell’s degradation hubs, called lysosomes, can cause abnormal cell growth. The results are published today in the scientific journal […]

Novel strategy to stop tumors from developing new blood vessels

March 11, 2020

Via: The Medical News

Scientists at the National Institutes of Health and other institutions have devised a new strategy to stop tumors from developing the new blood vessels they need to grow. Once thought to be extremely promising for the treatment of cancer, blocking […]

Developmental shape-shifting is key to cancer’s ability to spread and evade immune defenses

February 11, 2020

Via: The Medical News

Just as people tend to become stuck in their ways as they grow older so too do cells. Neurons in the brain don’t one day decide to become heart cells; skin cells repair wounds with skin cells rather than kidney […]

Research reveals novel way to treat cancers using CAR T cell therapy

February 10, 2020

Via: The Medical News

Too many patients with cancers like multiple myeloma relapse after treatment. This grim reality motivated researchers at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah (U of U) to try to improve the depth and durability of treatment response […]

Researchers discover new approach to make tumors sensitive to immunotherapy

February 7, 2020

Via: The Medical News

A cancer tumor’s ability to mutate allows it to escape from chemotherapy and other attempts to kill it. So, encouraging mutations would not be a logical path for cancer researchers. Yet a Mayo Clinic team and their collaborators took that […]
