Inducing Cell Suicide, New Method Kills Cancer cells in 2 Hours

In a new method that can revolutionize the cancer treatment, University of Texas researcher has developed a injectible chemical compound which can brighten the cancerous cells and beaming light they can be made acidic and commit suicide with results up to 95%. Matthew Gdovin, Associate Professor at University of Texas at San Antonio, has developed the method to inject nitrobenzaldehyde ...

Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer Led to New Tumors in 23% Patients: Reveals Russian Study

Russian scientists have found that 23 percent of breast cancer patients who had undergone chemotherapy were back to square one with new formation of tumors. The neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with breast cancer can stimulate evolution of the new tumour, said Nicholay Litvyakov of Cancer Research Institute. The scientists analyzed biopsies of women with breast cancer and preparing for operation ...

Here’s why breast cancers can become drug resistant

As the case in most cancer cases, breast cancer can also be prevented if detected at an early stage. However, in majority of breast cancer cases developing resistance to drug is nearly inevitable after a certain point of time. Now, a new study by German scientists has shown why it might be so. HER2 membrane is the key element in ...

Researchers Discover Mystery Behind Key Cancer-Promoting Gene

The mystery behind how a protein, TGF-beta, can prevent cancer from forming and encourage its aggressive growth in human cell, has been discovered by a team of researchers. The findings could provide a potential target for treatment with the new insight into the cancer mystery that is considered to be a major paradox of cancer biology. TGF-beta is known as ...

New Compound Found to Kill Cancer Cells with No Side-Effects

A recent research shows that by targeting telomeres with a small molecule called 6-thiodG that take advantage of the cell’s ‘biological clock’ to kill cancer cells and shrink tumor growth, may lead to a new therapy to treat cancer. The findings showed that the molecule stop the growth of cancer. Jerry Shay, professor at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre in ...

Vaccine found to suppress tumor growth and spreading of breast cancer: Study

Researchers from Uppsala University found that a therapeutic vaccine directed against tumor vessels can reduce tumor burden and suppress formation of spontaneous lung metastases in a mouse model for metastatic breast cancer. The target molecule of the immunization strategy is the extra domain-A (ED-A) of fibronectin, a protein domain which is highly selective for the tumor vasculature in the adult. ...
