  • Chemical array draws out malignant cells to guide individualized cancer treatment May 26, 2017
    Melanoma is a particularly difficult cancer to treat once it has metastasized, spreading throughout the body. Researchers are using chemistry to find the deadly, elusive malignant cells within a melanoma tumor that hold the potential to spread. Once found, the stemlike metastatic cells can be cultured and screened for their response to a variety of anti-canc […]
  • New cellular target may put the brakes on cancer's ability to spread May 26, 2017
    Researchers have discovered a biochemical signaling process that causes densely packed cancer cells to break away from a tumor and spread the disease elsewhere in the body.
  • Sweetening connection between cancer and sugar May 26, 2017
    Scientists have found that some types of cancers have more of a sweet tooth than others.
  • Designer viruses stimulate the immune system to fight cancer May 26, 2017
    Scientists have created artificial viruses that can be used to target cancer. These designer viruses alert the immune system and cause it to send killer cells to help fight the tumor. The results provide a basis for innovative cancer treatments.
  • A new way to slow cancer cell growth May 25, 2017
    Researchers have identified a new way to potentially slow the fast-growing cells that characterize all types of cancer. By removing a specific protein from cells, they were able to slow the cell cycle, which is out of control in cancer. The findings were made in kidney and cervical cancer cells and are a long way from being applied in people, but could be th […]
  • Preliminary: BRCA variations may work alongside COMT variation to reduce breast cancer May 25, 2017
    Researchers find through looking at genetic data sets of presumed cancer-free women who carry BRCA 1/2 variants, the co-occurrence of a rare COMT genetic variant in some women. This research outlines a strategy for looking at large genetic data sets for clues as to why a genetic carrier may never develop the associated diseases.
  • Better understanding of how brain tumors 'feed' May 25, 2017
    All cancer tumors have one thing in common - they must feed themselves to grow and spread, a difficult feat since they are usually in a tumor microenvironment with limited nutrients and oxygen. A study has revealed new details about how an enzyme called acetyl-CoA synthetase 2 (ACSS2) allows brain tumors to grow despite their harsh surroundings.
