Treatment of prostate cancer may be monitored better by a new blood test

The BBC reported this week on a new blood test which has been developed to help with prostate cancer treatment. A study found a blood test could detect who men new drug treatment.  Researchers analysed blood samples from nearly 50 men with advanced prostate cancer who were taking a  new trial drug (olaparib). They wanted to […]

A nanovaccine could be used as defense from mutliple cancers

A unique nanovaccine which targets several different cancer types has been developed by researchers from UT Southwestern Medical Center This nanovaccine consists of cancer proteins that are recognized by the immune system.   The Nanoparticle vaccines delivers minuscule particulates to the body.  These small particles stimulate the immune system to create an immune response against any potential cancer. This helps people’s […]

Scientist identify drugs that could stop melanoma spreading.

Scientists at the University of Iowa have found a drug which can stop melanoma from metastasising under laboratory conditions.  To identify the drug they documented in real time how the skin cancer formed into tumours. A unique computer program was used to identify and log how both breast tissue cancer cells and melanoma cells form tumors and found the two cancers act the […]

Scientists Have Made Tumour Cells More Susceptible To Cancer Treatment

Scientists at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created a way to make tumour cells more susceptible to certain types of cancer treatment.  They have done this by coating the cells with nanoparticles before delivering drugs. By putting hundreds of tiny particles on the surfaces of tumour cells, scientists were able to make the cells more vulnerable to […]

Brain training reduces chemotherapy-induced nerve damage.

According to a study by researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, a type of functional brain training known as neurofeedback may be able to reduce symptoms of chemotherapy-induced nerve damage in cancer survivors. Chronic chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy is caused by damage to the nerves that control sensation and movement in arms […]
