Discovery of a triple barrier that prevents cells from becoming cancerous Researchers have identified for the first time the triple mechanism that stops chromosome separation in response to situations that compromise the integrity of the genetic information. The loss of this response capacity is characteristic of cancerous cells.
New nebulizer set to replace the need for jabs A revolutionary nebulizer could one day deliver life-saving cancer drugs and vaccines traditionally given by injection. Cheap, lightweight and portable, the advanced nebuliser delivers precise drug doses to patients with life-threatening or debilitating lung conditions including cancer, tuberculosis, asthma and cystic fibrosis.
Molecular imaging study reveals improved detection of early recurrent prostate cancer A recently developed drug was significantly better at detecting recurrent prostate cancer in early stages. The American Cancer Society reports that prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind lung cancer.
New way found to combat brain cancer Scientists have discovered an innovative way that may stop the spread of the most lethal and aggressive brain cancer glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). In laboratory studies, scientists demonstrated that activating a specific family of proteins halted cancer cell migration into healthy tissue.Becoming cyborgs in the battle against prostate cancer Men are surprisingly positive and open to the concept of having cancer-detecting biosensors implanted within their bodies – effectively making them cyborgs .
