Research Determines Why Different Cancers Display Similar Profiles

A team of cancer researchers has identified a molecular mechanism that may explain why gene expression profiles are similar in late stage cancers from different organs. More...

Targeted Delivery of Resveratrol Prevents Lung Cancer in Model

A team of Swiss cancer researchers prevented development of lung cancer in a mouse model system using a method, which they had developed, that delivered high concentration dosages of the natural cancer chemoprevention compound resveratrol directly to the animals' lungs. More...

Genetically Engineered Zika Virus Slows Tumor Growth in Model

Injecting mice carrying human glioblastoma tumors with modified Zika virus was shown to significantly reduce intracerebral tumor growth and prolong animal survival. More...

Mechanism Identified for Control of Nuclear Pore Complexes

Researchers have identified a molecular mechanism that helps control the number of nuclear pore complexes in a cell, a measure of some importance, since cells that transform into cancers often have an excess of these features. More...

Candidate Cancer Drug Blocks Growth and Reverses Drug Resistance

A candidate drug for treatment of pancreatic cancer was shown to slow growth and spread of the disease in cell cultures and reverse drug resistance in preclinical animal models. More...

Genome Editing Used to Correct Mitochondrial Mutations

A recently developed mouse model, which mimics a cardiac mitochondrial disease, was used to demonstrate the potential use of genomic engineering to treat the disorder by eliminating the mutation that causes it. More...

Mitochondrial Peptide Protects Brain from Age-Related Dementias

A recent study contributed new evidence that strengthens the hypothesis that the peptide humanin protects the brain against the development of Alzheimer's disease and other age-related dementias. More...
