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.

New superparamagnetic crystals to manage future drug delivery

New superparamagnetic crystals to manage future drug delivery

 Researchers have developed new superparamagnetic crystals that could zip down drugs around your body, revolutionising drug delivery to tumours and other sites in the body that need to be targeted precisely.

Why some tumours evade immunotherapy

The researchers found that when the tumour recurred, a particular molecule on the cell surface -- called the epitope -- was no longer present on the cell surface in sufficient quantity.

Pancreatic cancer – Awareness of symptoms helps in early treatment

The causes of pancreatic cancer are not known. However, there are some risk factors that make developing pancreatic cancer more likely

Decoded! How X-ray damages DNA, causes cancer

Researchers from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in the UK have been able to identify in human cancers two characteristic patterns of DNA damage caused by ionising radiation, such as gamma rays, X-rays and radioactive particles.

New method that can kill cancer cells in 2 hours developed!

The method involves injecting a chemical compound, nitrobenzaldehyde, into the tumour and allowing it to diffuse into the tissue.

Borrowing immune cells can help fight cancer

 A team of international researchers has found that if an individual's own immune cells cannot recognise and fight tumours in the body, borrowing immune cells might help.

'Starving' cancer cells may prevent growth of new tumours

A new study has found "starving" cancer cells could be the key to prevent the growth of tumours.

Implantable device may soon shrink pancreatic tumours in humans

 In pioneering research, researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Massachusetts General Hospital have developed a small, implantable device that delivers chemotherapy drugs directly to pancreatic tumours.
