Any given tumor is composed of a multitude of cell types that can each look or behave differently from its neighbors. A new study shows that this cell diversity can also play a vital role in cancer's ability to invade distant sites within the body.
Researchers used metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) enhanced with a green tea phytochemical coating to target human prostate cancer cells for the first time.READ MORE
A team of scientists has discovered new functions of a key cellular machine that regulates gene packaging. This "machine" called BAF/PBAF is mutated in 20% of all human tumors, including pancreatic cancer, gastric cancer and melanoma.READ MORE
A basic science discovery reveals a fundamental way cells interpret signals from their environment and may eventually pave the way for potential new therapies.READ MORE
Researchers have identified a gene responsible for the spread of triple-negative breast cancer and developed a potential way to stop it.
A recent discovery has lead to promising potential treatments for pancreatic cancer.READ MORE
Researchers have designed DNA-based nanogels that only break down and release their chemotherapeutic contents within cancer cells, potentially eliminating painful and uncomfortable side effects.READ MORE
Researchers at Tel Aviv University (TAU) have demonstrated that the CRISPR/Cas9 system is very effective in treating metastatic cancers, a significant step on the way to finding a cure for cancer. The researchers developed a novel lipid nanoparticle-based delivery system that specifically targets cancer cells and destroys them by genetic manipulation.READ MORE
A simple and inexpensive blood test could pick out patients with stomach or oesophageal cancer who are likely to benefit from targeted treatment, a new study shows.READ MORE
A research team focused on treating cancer metastasis by delivering immune-cell-attracting chemicals into lung cancers via red blood cells.READ MORE
