Researchers at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, or SBP, and the University of California San Diego report in a new study that the p62 pathway in tumor stroma could be a potential anti-cancer target.
A team of mechanical engineers and pathologists at the University of Washington (UW) has invented a new microscope capable of scanning tumors during surgery and examine cancer biopsies in three dimensions (3D).
Thermal ablation with magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS) is a noninvasive technique for treating fibroids and cancer. New research from University of California, Davis, shows that combining the technique with chemotherapy can allow complete destruction of tumors in mice.
Researchers from Mount Sinai, New York City, have discovered a key mechanism by which radiation treatment (radiotherapy) fails to completely destroy tumors. They offer a novel solution to promote successful radiotherapy for the millions of cancer patients who are treated with it.
Researchers have identified a drug that works to limit the spread of glioblastoma, the most common primary tumor of the brain and central nervous system which is also regarded as one of the most aggressive of all cancers.
Scientists have discovered a protein that helps map the edge of brain tumors more clearly so they show up on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, according to new research presented at the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Cancer Conference in Liverpool today.
