Vital protein to stop tumour growth identified

In what can be called a major relief for scientists working on cancer research, a new study has reassured the potential of a protein that can be targetted to stop tumour growth.

New tool captures tumour growth in real time

Scientists have developed a sophisticated new optical imaging tool to capture "astonishing" live images of tumours that enables them to look deep within the cancer cells.

Blocking enzyme can reduce tumour growth: Study

Knocking out a single enzyme dramatically cripples the ability of aggressive cancer cells to spread and grow tumours, scientists have found.

New drug aims to make several types of cancer self-destruct

Three pharmaceutical companies are poised to test whether new drugs can work against a wide range of cancers independently of where they originated — breast, prostate, liver, lung for the first time ever.

Thiabendazole, an FDA-approved, generic drug destroys newly established blood vessels, making it a vascular disrupting agent.

Chemotherapy can boost tumour growth

Chemotherapy can undermine itself by causing wound-healing cells around tumours to make a protein that helps the cancer resist treatment.

How normal cells trigger tumour growth

Normal cells in tumours can trigger the growth of tumour cells after losing a vital tumour suppressor gene, a new study has revealed.

Microchip implant monitors tumour growth

Scientists in Germany claim to have developed a "microchip sensor" that can be implanted close to a tumour to monitor its growth.
