Scientists use genome-editing technology to make cancer cells kill off other fellow cancer cells in the original tumor. Also key to this potential treatment is cancer cells' self-homing behavior.
The potential of using cells to hunt down tumors is something explored by a lot of scientists in the field in recent years. However, another study starts to grab the limelight after a surprising discovery.
Using a cooling cap during cancer treatment could prevent hair loss that comes with chemotherapy.
Two children with leukemia are slowly starting to recover after what appears to be a surprisingly new and unique treatment method. The plan was to kill their cancers using a special gene-editing method, and it worked.
German researchers, Dr. Irmela Jeremias from Helmholtz Zentrum München and her colleagues, have successfully discovered a small number of inactive leukemia cells that experts believe is responsible for the relapse of the cancer of the blood.
A new study from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center gives hope to leukemia patients through T-cell therapy, which Dr. Aude Chapuis believes is even better.
Scientists at the Institute of Cancer Research, in collaboration with the Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Centre in China, have developed a new computerized test that measures metastasis diversity to predict ovarian cancer survival.
Scientists have discovered a protein that may be an unexplored target to develop a new class of therapies for aggressive cancers, such as cancer of the lungs and pancreas.
The FDA put a stop to a CAR-T cell therapy trial on leukemia sufferers after the deaths of three patients. Juno Therapeutics, the company behind the clinical trial, says it knows what caused the deaths and wants the trial to proceed with modifications.
