  • Bioengineers imagine the future of vaccines and immunotherapy December 14, 2017
    In the not-too-distant future, nanoparticles delivered to a cancer patient's immune cells might teach the cells to destroy tumors. A flu vaccine might look and feel like applying a small, round bandage to your skin. These are examples of how innovative biomaterials could enhance vaccines against HIV and other infectious diseases and immunotherapies for […]
  • How defeating THOR could bring a hammer down on cancer December 14, 2017
    Researchers have uncovered a novel gene they named THOR. It's a highly conserved long non-coding RNA that plays a role in cancer development. Knocking it out can halt the growth of tumors.
  • 'Bet hedging' explains the efficacy of many combination cancer therapies December 14, 2017
    The efficacy of many FDA-approved cancer drug combinations is not due to synergistic interactions between drugs, but rather to a form of "bet hedging," according to a new study.
  • Deadly heart rhythm halted by noninvasive radiation therapy December 14, 2017
    Radiation therapy often is used to treat cancer patients. Now, doctors have shown that radiation therapy -- aimed directly at the heart -- can be used to treat patients with a life-threatening heart rhythm. They treated five patients with irregular heart rhythms, called ventricular tachycardia, who had not responded to standard treatments. The therapy result […]
  • CT scans of Egyptian mummies reveal oldest known cases of breast cancer and multiple myeloma December 14, 2017
    An international team has discovered the world’s oldest known cases of breast cancer and multiple myeloma (a type of bone marrow cancer). The discoveries were made by conducting CT scans of two mummies found in the pharaonic necropolis of Qubbet el-Hawa in Aswan, Egypt.
  • Frequent sun exposure may cue gene fusion found in skin cancer December 14, 2017
    Researchers have determined that a particular fusion gene has a tendency to be found in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) lesions on skin exposed frequently to the sun. The fusion gene is unique to cSCC and appears to be related to frequent sun exposure. It is believed that the work will open doors to a new form of personalized cSCC treatment.
  • What keeps stem cells in their undifferentiated state? December 13, 2017
    A special cluster of proteins helps unwind DNA during cell division and plays a key role in keeping stem cells in their immature state, scientists have discovered. This study also points to a better understanding of how cancer cells manage to sustain rapid cell division without triggering cell death.
