Research conducted on human pancreatic tumors transplanted in mice reveals promising results, TAU researchers say
Tiny devices made of DNA could detect cancer with fewer false alarms
Viruses get a bad rap as potential cancer-causers, but at least one class of viruses that commonly live on human skin – so-called “low-risk” human papillomaviruses -- appear to play an unwitting role in protecting us against skin cancer according to a new study published in Nature.
With a revolutionary new approach that analyzed just a few drops of blood, scientists from Northwestern Medicine, the University of Chicago and Wuhan University in China detected earlier and more accurately if diabetic patients had developed life-threatening vascular complications such as heart disease, atherosclerosis and kidney failure.
Scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) have identified 10 cancer drugs currently in clinical trials that do not work how clinicians thought they would. In identifying what went wrong, experts can now work to improve drug discovery and personalized medicine.
Scientists studying a highly cancer-prone family have identified a rare, inherited gene mutation that dramatically raises the lifetime risk of pancreatic and other cancers.
