Counting Cancer-busting Oxygen Molecules Researchers from the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), an Australian Research Centre of Excellence, have shown that nanoparticles used in combination with X-rays, are a viable method for killing cancer cells deep within the living body.Crowdfunding the Fight Against Cancer From budding social causes to groundbreaking businesses to the next big band, crowdfunding has helped connect countless worthy projects with like-minded people willing to support their efforts, even in small ways. But could crowdfunding help fight cancer?
Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.Cancer Drug Target Visualized at Atomic Resolution New study using cryo-electron microscopy shows how potential drugs could inhibit cancer.Genetic Mechanism Behind Cancer-Causing Mutations Researchers at Indiana University has identified a genetic mechanism that is likely to drive mutations that can lead to cancer.Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body."Gene Fusion" Drives Childhood Brain Cancers Study co-led by Penn scientists highlights potential targets for future cancer therapies.Enzyme Links Age-Related Inflammation, Cancer Researchers have shown that an enzyme key to regulating gene expression -- and also an oncogene when mutated -- is critical for the expression of numerous inflammatory compounds that have been implicated in age-related increases in cancer and tissue degeneration. Viral Gene Editing System Corrects Genetic Liver Disease Penn study has implications for developing safe therapies for an array of rare diseases via new gene cut-and-paste methods.Improving Delivery of Poorly Soluble Drugs Using Nanoparticles A technology that could forever change the delivery of drugs is undergoing evaluation by the Technology Evaluation Consortium™ (TEC). Developed by researchers at Northeastern University, the technology is capable of creating nanoparticle structures that could deliver drugs into the bloodstream orally – despite the fact that they are normally poorly soluble.
