The Achilles' Heel of Cancer Cells Discovered

The Achilles' Heel of Cancer Cells Discovered

Researchers from the Manchester Collaborative Center for Inflammation Research have found why a certain cancer drug is so effective at destroying tumor cells. Their discovery could be employed to engineer the design of future cancer therapies. Read More


Promising Clinical Trials for Cancer Vaccines

Promising Clinical Trials for Cancer Vaccines

As scientists learn more about the way cancer grows and spreads, they have come up with a variety of ways to slow and even stop the growth of malignant tumors. One of these methods, therapeutic cancer vaccines, is beginning to show promise as a powerful treatment with low toxicity and very few... Read More


Viruses Eradicate Cancer Cells, Not Healthy Tissue

Viruses Eradicate Cancer Cells, Not Healthy Tissue

Researchers have genetically engineered a new strain of virus that seeks out and destroys cancer cells while leaving normal, healthy cells alone. Scientists at the Mayo Clinic developed the genome of the oncolytic (or cancer dissolving) virus to recognize the so-called microRNAs of normal tiss... Read More

Expert Commentary: Dr. Tauseef Ahmed, M.D., April 30, 2009

I think a better term for the therapies recently reported in Cancer Research would be targeted small molecules. Nanoparticles are formulations of various chemotherapeutic drugs that improve the delivery of chemotherapy. The most commonly used nanoparticle medication is nanoparticle bound pa... Read More


Cellular "Danger Receptor" Alerts Immune System to Cancer

Cellular

    A chemical “danger receptor” on certain specialized cells senses the cell death characteristic of bodily injury or malignant tissue and then mobilizes the body’s immune system to repair the flaw, a recent study has revealed.     The results... Read More


Viruses Being Used to Fight Cancer

Viruses Being Used to Fight Cancer

It’s common knowledge that viruses make us sick. But a new, counterintuitive logic is coming into play in the war on cancer, namely, that viruses can also make us well.     So far, the results of various genetically engineered virus studies are tentative and are just beg... Read More
