Pen-sized microscope could ID cancer cells
Surgeons removing a malignant brain tumor don't want to leave cancerous material behind. But they're also trying to protect healthy brain matter and minimize neurological harm.
New imaging technique 'lights up' cancer cells
A new imaging technique that 'lights up' cancer cells may eventually help surgeons remove all of a cancer the first time, according to a preliminary study.
Chili pepper compound could kill cancer cells
Capsaicin, the compound responsible for chilis' heat, is used in creams sold to relieve pain, and recent research shows that in high doses, it kills prostate cancer cells. Now researchers are finding clues that help explain how the substance works. Their conclusions suggest that one day it could come in a new, therapeutic form.
Implant captures cancer cells
Scientists at Northwestern University in Illinois have created a tiny implant which, in mice for now, captures cancer cells spreading through the body.
Rabbit virus can kill cancer cells
University of Florida Health researchers have discovered that a rabbit virus can deliver a one-two punch, killing some kinds of cancer cells while eliminating a common and dangerous complication of bone marrow transplants.
Metformin, resveratrol target gut to lower blood sugar
Researchers at the Toronto General Hospital Research Institute have discovered metformin (the most widely prescribed type 2 diabetic medication) and resveratrol, a compound found in grapes, peanuts and blueberries, trigger novel signaling pathways in the small intestine to lower blood sugar.
Sound separates cancer cells from blood samples
Separating circulating cancer cells from blood cells for diagnostic, prognostic and treatment purposes may become much easier using an acoustic separation method and an inexpensive, disposable chip, according to a team of engineers.
Role of growth signal in cancer cells discovered
In a study, researchers at Rockefeller University home in on one culprit that fuels this variable vulnerability within squamous cell cancers: exposure to a signal known as TGF-β, given off by immune cells that congregate next to a tumor's blood vessels.
New signaling pathway generates slowly proliferating cancer cells
A signaling pathway responsible for the generation of slowly proliferating cancer cells, which are hard to eradicate with current treatments and thought to be a cause of subsequent disease, relapse.
