Inherited genes may cause more cancer than previously thought

Inherited genes may cause more cancer than previously thought

 The study was coordinated by the Veronese multi centre team of Arc-Net, led by Professor Aldo Scarpa, which brought together pancreatic cancer expertise from around the world.

Brain cancer has a new cure – combination of drugs

Brain cancer has a new cure – combination of drugs

They also discovered a new mechanism by which the combination promotes long-term immunity against glioblastoma tumours.

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.

Long night fasting may cut risk of breast cancer recurrence

The findings showed that a short 'night fast' of less than 13 hours led to a 36 percent greater chance of tumours returning in women treated for early-stage breast cancer. 

New nanodrug detects cancer therapy effectiveness in real time

Zee Media Bureau

New York: Nowadays, with the help of new study, one can easily know whether the treatment for the deadly disease cancer is working for a patients or not.

Cancer breakthrough: Scientists find tumour's ‘Achilles heel'

Researchers from University College, London, have developed a way of finding unique markings within a tumour - its 'Achilles heel' - allowing the body to target the disease.

New method to kill brain cancer with skin cells

The discovery can offer, for the first time in more than 30 years, a new and more effective treatment for the disease, says the study.

Shape-shifting nanoparticles to deliver drugs

Professor Warren Chan from the University of Toronto has spent the last decade figuring out how to deliver chemotherapy drugs into tumours - and nowhere else.

Nine in 10 cancers caused by lifestyle, not genes: Study

Smoking, drinking, sun and air pollution may account for up to nine out of 10 cancers, a new study has claimed.

Effective therapies for liver damage come closer

The process involves growing cells on defined materials - without the need for animal products - which makes therapies safer for use in people.

New 'intelligent' gel directly attacks cancer

The technology, developed by researchers at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Centre (CRCHUM), has already been successfully tested in the laboratory.

Now, robotic worms to assist in inner ear surgeries

 Researchers have developed a miniature robotic 'worm' that could drill through a bone into the inner ear, steering around sensitive nerves, to help surgeons remove tumours from the delicate organ.
