Depleting CAR T cells after tumor treatment reverses B cell deficiency in mice

Genetically engineered T cells, or CAR T cells, represent a promising approach to treat multiple types of cancer. These therapies can eliminate tumors by targeting specific markers that are expressed ..

OU researchers develop novel, non-invasive cancer therapy

A staggering 1.7 million persons in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer in 2016, with 600,000 cases ending in death. University of Oklahoma researchers have collaborated to design a novel, non-invasive cancer therapy that could eliminate tumors without affecting the healthy cells in the ..

Cervical cancer screening could be less frequent, start later

Boston, MA - Women may only need cervical cancer screening every 5-10 years--instead of every three years, as currently recommended--and may be able to start the screenings later in life, according to..

A new strategy for choosing cancer drugs

Choosing the best treatment for a cancer patient is often an inexact science. Drugs that work well for some patients may not help others, and tumors that are initially susceptible to a drug can later ..

Stopping breast cancer metastasis in its tracks

A new Tel Aviv University study finds that combining genetic therapy with chemotherapy delivered to a primary tumor site is extremely effective in preventing breast cancer metastasis. The research w..

IL-34: New, possible target to tackle drug-resistant cancer cells

A team of researchers has discovered that chemoresistant lung cancer cells suppress immune functions and strengthen resistance to chemotherapy by producing interleukin-34 (IL-34) -- a type of cytokine. Chemotherapy is one of...

Scientists find lethal vulnerability in treatment-resistant lung cancer

Researchers working in four labs at UT Southwestern Medical Center have found a chink in a so-called "undruggable" lung cancer's armor -- and located an existing drug that might provide a...

How brain tumors spread, become resistant to therapy

Research teams from Karolinska Institutet and Uppsala University have jointly discovered that the usually protective enzyme FBW7 is commonly mutated and inactivated in childhood brain cancers causing tumors to spread and...

Consumption of a bioactive compound from Neem plant could significantly suppress development of prostate...

Oral administration of nimbolide, over 12 weeks shows reduction of prostate tumor size by up to 70 per cent and decrease in tumor metastasis by up to 50 per cent A team...

Nanosensors could help determine tumors’ ability to remodel tissue

MIT researchers have designed nanosensors that can profile tumors and may yield insight into how they will respond to certain therapies. The system is based on levels of enzymes called proteases, whic..
