Scientists at Cedars-Sinai have discovered how prostate cancer can sometimes withstand and outwit a standard hormone therapy, causing the cancer to spread. Their findings also point to a simple blood test that may help doctors predict when this type of hormone therapy resistance will occur.         Prostrate Cancer Prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death i...

A research group consisting of scientists from NUST MISIS, the Technical University of Munich, Helmholtz Zentrum München, the University of Duisburg-Essen, and the University of Oldenburg has developed a system that allows doctors to both improve the accuracy of diagnosing malignant cells and to provide additional opportunities for cancer treatment. The magnetoferritin compound is the main el...

A research team led by scientists from the Cancer Institute of Singapore (CSI Singapore) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) has developed a novel peptide drug called FFW that could potentially stop the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), or primary liver cancer. This landmark discovery opens the door for more effective treatment of liver cancer with less side effects.   ...

Scientists in Spain have discovered a mechanism that promotes inflammation-related bowel cancer and could offer new treatment targets. Researchers may have found a new treatment target for bowel cancer. The finding concerns the activity of the signaling protein p38 in the myeloid cells of the immune system and that of IGF-1, which is a hormone triggered by p38.   Much of the work was con...

Taking heart medication during chemotherapy can help minimize heart damage in breast cancer patients. A common heart medication may help minimize the toxic effects of chemotherapy, based on a clinical trial that tested the use of beta-blockers in breast cancer patients undergoing chemo. Results of the study were recently presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 67th Annual Sci...

Researchers using long-read DNA sequencing have made one of the most detailed maps ever of structural variations in a cancer cell's genome. The map reveals about 20,000 structural variations, few of which have been noted before, in just one cell type associated with one form of breast cancer.     Long-read sequencing enabled the team to reconstruct in great detail the history of how...

Scientists have found it challenging to understand why some breast cancers become resistant to drugs. A recent study concludes that a sticky protein might be the answer.   Fibronectin:A glue-like protein may help to explain breast cancer drug resistance. The hormone estrogen plays a vital part in the development of breast cancer. An estimated 70 percent of all bre...

Clinical use of the anticancer drug methotrexate can be limited by its high toxicity. It emerges that a diet rich in the amino acid histidine increases the effectiveness of methotrexate treatment and lowers toxicity in mice.   Methotrexate was one of the first approved anticancer drugs, and is a cornerstone of modern chemotherapy for the treatment of certain solid tumours and blood cancers...

A new approach established at the University of Zurich sheds light on the effects of anti-cancer drugs and the defense mechanisms of cancer cells. The method makes it possible to quickly test various drugs and treatment combinations at the cellular level. Cancer cells are cells over which the human body has lost control. The fact that they are transformed body cells makes it all the more difficul...

Using high energy ultrasound beams to destroy prostate cancer tumours may be as effective as surgery or radiotherapy, but with fewer side effects. Ultrasound therapy destroys cancer cells in the prostate (illustrated) Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK, with around 47,000 cases every year. Treatments include surgery to remove the gland, or radiotherapy, which uses radia...

A novel nuclear medicine approach is showing great promise for precision treatment of solid tumors in many types of cancer--including lung, breast, pancreas and ovarian in adults and glioma, neuroblastoma and sarcoma in children. The research was presented today at the SNMMI 2018 Annual Meeting, June 23-26 in Philadelphia.   In 2017, researchers from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Cente...

A viral immunotherapy using a herpes virus to treat brain tumors has been shown to be safe and well-tolerated in a pediatric study from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The findings, presented today at the International Symposium on Pediatric Neuro-Oncology in Denver, also showed preliminary evidence of effectiveness in killing malignant tumor cells.   The virus, known as G207, i...

Scientists are designing a blood test that could detect cancer before symptoms occur. Early detection allows early treatment and prevents cancer progression. Cancer is usually diagnosed after a patient has been experiencing symptoms. At this point, the tumor has already grown significantly and often has spread to other organs. Later stage cancers are more difficult to treat, have lower sur...

A new study in mice has revealed a molecular link between a high-fat diet and the growth and spread of prostate cancer. The findings raise the possibility that changes in diet could potentially improve treatment outcomes in some men, the study leaders believe.   In the study, the researchers also showed that an anti-obesity drug that targets a protein that controls fat synthesis could po...

The machine was able to more accurately diagnose malignant melanoma and benign nevi. The dermatologists accurately detected an average of 86.6 percent of melanomas, compared to the CNN's 95 percent accuracy. MACHINE MAY BE BETTER than man when it comes to detecting skin cancer in patients. For the first time, researchers have shown that artificial intelligence known as deep learning c...

Cancer is the leading cause of death across the globe. For years now, researchers have led meticulous studies focused on how to stop this deadly disease in its tracks. How close are we to finding more effective treatments? The World Health Organization (WHO) note that, worldwide, nearly 1 in 6 deaths are down to cancer.   In the United States alone, the National Cancer Institut...

Results from two clinical trials are expected to improve the outlook for people diagnosed with early-stage pancreatic cancer that can be treated with surgery.   In the first trial, changing the type of chemotherapy given after surgery from a single drug to a multi-drug regimen greatly improved how long patients lived. Patients in the trial treated with the multi-drug regimen survived for an ...
