Scientists link proteins that keep cells multiplying to cancer

Published: Thu, 18 Dec 2014 11:00:00 GMT

Researchers find a family of RNA-binding proteins known as Musashi proteins - that can change and lock cells into a proliferative state - may be involved in cancer regulation.

Important gene interaction defined that drives aggressive brain cancer

Published: Thu, 18 Dec 2014 08:00:00 GMT

Targeted therapies are a growing and groundbreaking field in cancer care in which drugs or other substances are designed to interfere with genes or molecules that control the growth and survival of...

A protein that makes other proteins also regulates fat levels in worms, and possibly in humans

Published: Thu, 18 Dec 2014 08:00:00 GMT

Like a smart sensor that adjusts the lighting in each room and a home's overall temperature, a protein that governs the making of other proteins in the cell also appears capable of controlling fat...

Fast, accurate new nanoparticle-based sensor system for rapidly screening cancer drugs

Published: Thu, 18 Dec 2014 08:00:00 GMT

Traditional genomic, proteomic and other screening methods currently used to characterize drug mechanisms are time-consuming and require special equipment, but now researchers led by chemist Vincent...

Understanding cancer spread by researching blood and lymphatic vessels

Published: Wed, 17 Dec 2014 11:00:00 GMT

Knowing more about how blood and lymphatic vessels develop in the gut should lead to new ways to prevent cancer spread and gut-specific lymphatic diseases, say researchers.

Big data tool developed to better classify tumor cells and guide personalized cancer treatments

Published: Wed, 17 Dec 2014 09:00:00 GMT

New statistical model allows better identification of different cell types found in solid tumors to enable more targeted treatment options.

Hard-to-reach cancers targeted with 'Trojan horse' proteins

Published: Wed, 17 Dec 2014 09:00:00 GMT

Scientists at Brunel University London have found a way of targeting hard-to-reach cancers and degenerative diseases using nanoparticles, but without causing the damaging side effects the treatment...

Scientists find way to boost healthy cells during chemo

Published: Wed, 17 Dec 2014 09:00:00 GMT

It's well known that chemotherapy helps fight cancer. It's also known that it wreaks havoc on normal, healthy cells.

Employing robotic surgery leads to organ preservation for kidney cancer patients

Published: Wed, 17 Dec 2014 08:00:00 GMT

Patients with operable kidney cancers were more likely to have a partial nephrectomy - the recommended treatment for localized tumors - when treated in hospitals that were early adopters of robotic...

A new form of genetic regulation revealed by the mapping of the human loop-ome

Published: Wed, 17 Dec 2014 08:00:00 GMT

The ancient Japanese art of origami is based on the idea that nearly any design - a crane, an insect, a samurai warrior - can be made by taking the same blank sheet of paper and folding it in...
