Supercharging Cancer Cells Mutation Rate Can Create Vaccine

Supercharging the mutation rate in cancer cells can create a powerful vaccine that is able to boost the effectiveness of immunotherapy, says a major new study. Scientists forced cancer cells in the lab to evolve much more rapidly than usual using a molecule called APOBEC3B, which is often used by tumours to drive rapid genetic […]

Plant Extract, Heat Can Kill Cancer Cells

Hyderabad: Extract from a medicinal plant Anthocephalus Cadamba in combination with a dye exposed to near infra-red light can selectively kill cancer cells, found a multi-institutional study. The synergistic activation of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) mediated autophagy (the natural process of removing damaged cells) by light-triggered nanoliposomes can be a useful strategy for enhancing the […]

Tiny Devices Developed To Detect Cancer

New York: Researchers from Duke University in the US, have created a new cancer-detecting tool, which uses tiny circuits made up of DNA to identify cancer cells by the molecular signatures on their surface. According to the study published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, the research team fashioned the simple circuits from […]

Molecule In Immune System May Kill Cancer Cells

London: Researchers have found a naturally occurring molecule and a component of the immune system that could successfully target and kill cancer cells, according to a study. The study, published in British Journal of Cancer, discovered that beta-galactoside-binding protein, a naturally occurring molecule produced by immune cells can non-specifically target cancer cells, make them undergo […]

`Jacket' to detect breast cancer unveiled

Akola: A thermal-imaging jacket which can diagnose breast cancer, developed by the Union Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, was unveiled at Akola in Maharashtra Thursday. Union Minister of State Sanjay Dhotre, in whose presence the first such jacket was handed over to the District Women’s Hospital here, said it is an easy-to-use diagnostic tool. […]

Thus tiny cell is good news for cancer survivors

Bengaluru: A scientist at the National Institute for Research in Reproductive Health (NIRRH) in Mumbai — an institute under the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) — says a new type of stem cell identified by her team can help restore fertility in men and women who have undergone treatment for cancer. Cancer treatment, or […]

Dim light escalates breast cancer's spread to bones

New York: Exposure to dim light at night may contribute to spreading of breast cancer to bones, researchers have shown in an animal study. When breast cancer spreads it often affects bones, cause severe pain and make them fragile. “To date no one has reported that exposure to dim light at night induces circadian disruption, […]

Novel approach brings hope in targeting cancer cells

Sydney: Researchers could provide a novel approach to targeting and destroying difficult-to-treat cancer cells, providing new therapeutic options for a broad range of cancers, finds a new study. Early detection of cancer is crucial for successful therapy. However, some cancer types do not have specific cancer surface markers that can be used to detect them […]
