Anticancer Therapies – News and Features
Compound Prevents Kidney Toxicity Caused by Chemotherapy Drug
Researchers in Japan identify a compound that can prevent cisplatin-induced renal toxicity and improve the outcomes of cancer treatment.
Synthetic Receptors for Precise Cell Control Designed
Scientists have developed a groundbreaking new technique for engineering biosensors that respond sensitively to specific biomolecules, enhancing cell migration and targeting in cancer treatment.
Protein Hyperactivation Could Kill Cancer Cells and Bacteria
Technology Networks had the pleasure of speaking with Walid A. Houry, professor of biochemistry at the University of Toronto, to find out about the discovery of compounds that can induce protease hyperactivation to kill cancer cells.
Developing New Methods To Treat Diffuse Midline Gliomas
A new study shows that craniospinal radiation reduces metastatic disease in this deadly pediatric cancer.
Anti-Nausea Drug Modified To Treat Pain
Altered version of anti-nausea drug netupitant reaches inside cells to disrupt signaling and provide sustained pain relief.
“Zombie” Cells Eliminated With New Molecule
Over time, the body's cells stop working properly and begin to accumulate, which eventually leads to aging. Now, researchers have discovered a new molecule that is able to destroy these old cells without affecting the healthy ones.
Breast Cancer Test May Help To Deliver Personalized Therapies
A team led by researchers are coming closer to delivering on the promise of personalized breast cancer therapy with a strategy to predict the most likely response of a cancer to a specific less toxic treatment regimen.
"Milestone" Targeted Nanotherapy for Leukemia Developed
Nanomedicine researchers have devised a new approach to solving a decades-old clinical problem: getting treatment drugs to act selectively on cancer cells and not on healthy cells.
Young Cancer Survivors Can Face Higher Risk of Heart Failure
Those at higher risk had been treated with a specific category of chemotherapy.
Air Pollution Particles Trigger Autophagy
New research from the Keck School of Medicine of USC shows that air pollution particles activate a cellular defense mechanism known as autophagy, which may reduce the ability of cells to fight off other harms.
