Cancer Research: Chasing invasive cancer cells with a laser ♦ Tiny drug-laden 'popping bubbles' lead triple attack treatment for liver cancer

Chasing invasive cancer cells with a laser What makes invasive cancer cells behave differently than the other cells in the tumor from which they arise? Let's turn them red with a laser and find out.
Tiny drug-laden 'popping bubbles' lead triple attack treatment for liver cancer A novel method for repositioning an FDA-approved anti-cancer compound has been discovered, which allows it to specifically target liver cancer tumors. A 'triple attack' technique combining chemotherapy, thermal ablation, and hyperthermia provided a highly targeted, yet minimally invasive approach.
Gene that protects breast cancer patients against 'chemo brain' discovered Variation of a gene may have a role in protecting cancer patients from developing chemotherapy-induced cognitive impairment, commonly known as ‘chemo fog’ or ‘chemo brain,’.
Experimental 'urban garden' helps cancer survivors' lower risk for recurrence, chronic illness While there is substantial evidence that diet and body weight can impact cancer development, recurrence, and progression – for the estimated 14.5 million cancer survivors in the US, there are few resources available to help them optimize their dietary patterns and lifestyle behaviors after active cancer treatment is over.Cancer survivors who participated in a multifaceted urban garden intervention improved their health behaviors, significantly reduced their weight, and improved biomarkers of health – all major improvements related to a reduced risk for developing a secondary cancer or illnesses like diabetes or heart disease.
