New drug may treat blood cancer patients

New drug may treat blood cancer patients

Researchers analysed gene expression data from 269 AML patients and found an association between the activity of a group of HOX genes and the patient survival rate.

New drug may inhibit cancer cell growth

New drug may inhibit cancer cell growth

The team also found an LxxLL motif (a common sequence of amino acids) in the p85a protein, which acts as an intermediary between RXRa and PI3K.

Drug that re-programmes cells to fight cancer developed in Australia

Drug that re-programmes cells to fight cancer developed in Australia

The therapy involves removing a patient's own immune cells, genetically engineering them to enhance their ability to destroy tumours, and putting them back in the body to fight cancer.

Cancer cells can take 100 times the hit with a combination of vitamin C and antibiotics, says study!

Cancer cells can take 100 times the hit with a combination of vitamin C and antibiotics, says study!

The new combination approach prevents cancer cells from changing their diet (metabolically inflexible), and effectively starves them, by preventing them from using any other available types of bio-fuels.

Researchers find new potential target for cancer treatment

Researchers find new potential target for cancer treatment

Researchers have discovered that cancer cells and normal cells use different 'gene switches' in order to regulate the expression of genes that control growth.

US researchers identify new way to slow down cancer development

US researchers identify new way to slow down cancer development

On a closer look, the researchers found out how Tudor-SN is important in the "preparatory" phase of the cell cycle, the period when the cell gets ready to divide, according to the study.

Researchers create artificial designer viruses to help fight cancer

Researchers create artificial designer viruses to help fight cancer

These designer viruses alert the immune system and cause it to send killer cells to help fight the tumour.

Researchers find antibody to kill cancer cells

Researchers find antibody to kill cancer cells

The antibody can precisely target regulatory T cells which in turn unleash the immune system to kill cancer cells. 

Obesity can lead to 13 types of cancer, says study

Obesity can lead to 13 types of cancer, says study

A new study has found that obesity leads to 13 types of cancer inlcuding ​pancreas and esophagus, as fat cells affect the processes that regulate the growth of cancer cells in the human body

Is aspirin really a 'wonder drug'? Scientists at IIT-Madras say common headache drug could cure cancer

Is aspirin really a 'wonder drug'? Scientists at IIT-Madras say common headache drug could cure cancer

Now, a research team from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT-Madras) has claimed that aspirin can help terminate cancer cells.

'Circular DNA key to evolution, drug resistance of cancer'

'Circular DNA key to evolution, drug resistance of cancer'

The researchers found that cancer-fueling genes, or oncogenes, are more likely to occur on ecDNA than on chromosomes.

Venetoclax: Wonder drug that 'melts' away cancer approved for human use in Australia

Venetoclax: Wonder drug that 'melts' away cancer approved for human use in Australia

The drug, which was approved for use in the US in August 2016, works by blocking the action of the BCL-2 protein which enables cancer cells to survive, a solution that researchers worldwide have been studying for more than 30 years.

Depression may make people less responsive to cancer treatment, says study

Depression may make people less responsive to cancer treatment, says study

A new study conducted by researchers states that depression can possibly make people less responsive to chemotherapy.

Human cells with 'built-in circuit' can kill cancer cells

Human cells with 'built-in circuit' can kill cancer cells

Researchers have engineered cells with a "built-in genetic circuit" that produces a molecule that impairs the ability of cancer cells to survive and grow in their low oxygen environment.

Gold nanoparticles helps in delivering drugs into cancer cells

Gold nanoparticles helps in delivering drugs into cancer cells

A recent research found that gold nanoparticles helps in delivering a drug right into the heart of cancer cells.

Researchers identify how cancer's 'invisibility cloak' works!

This 'invisibility' phase is a crucial step that allows tumours to spread throughout the body -- when the spread cannot be traced.

Prostate cancer treatment breakthrough: Scientists discover new tool that could reduce side-effects

When coupled with the milk protein lactoferrin, the Dox can be delivered directly into the nucleus of prostate cancer cells and will kill the cells as well as drug resistant cancer stem cells, without any side-effects. 

Study opens door to treatment of oesophageal cancer

In a recent study, scientistshave discovered that oesophageal cancer can be classified into threedifferent subtypes, paving the way for testing targeted treatmentstailored to patients` disease for the first time.

RNA molecule that fuels cancer growth identified

The study showed that NEAT1, a non-coding RNA, plays an important role in the survival of highly dividing cells -- and in particular of cancer cells. 

Drug that helps addicts may benefit cancer patients too

The drug naltrexone (LDN) not only causes cancer cells to stop growing, but it also alters their internal machinery, making them more likely to kill themselves, the researchers found.
