A new blood test can predict future cases of breast cancer, opening new doors to better prevention and early treatment of the disease.
Green tea and apples may help to prevent chronic conditions such as heart disease and cancer, according to new research.
The cane toad (Rhinella marina) isn't exactly a beloved amphibian. While countless frogs continue to face the troubles of climate chnage, shrinking habitats, and rampant disease, the cane toad has become an invading force in Australia - a dog-drugging nuisance without any natural predators to keep it down. But toad-hating Aussies may have hope yet. The cane toad is set to become Chinese medicine's next big import, as it was recently revealed that its poison could have cancer-fighting properties.
Scientists have discovered two new gene variants associated with an increased risk of breast cancer, a major new study says, providing important insights into the causes of the disease and how it develops.
Detecting cancer early on is key to combating its effects, and now scientists have developed a way to detect lung cancer on your breath, according to new research.
A new 3D vaccine may be the cure to cancer, as scientists found that it could provide a more effective way to harness the immune system to fight cancer, as well as infectious diseases, new research shows.
Green tea has long been celebrated as healthy drink. Now a new study has found that not only does this beverage encourage good health, but it could even trigger a cycle that kills oral cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone.
Researchers have figured out how to turn back time, at least for a boiled egg. And while that alone is a pretty impressive accomplishment, this 'unboiling' innovation wasn't just for bragging rights. The researchers behind the technique argue that it could dramatically reduce the cost of food production, biotechnology works, and even cancer treatments.
Early disease screening tests, which are meant to detect diseases like cancer in asymptomatic adults, don't actually save lives, according to new research.
Scientists have long been in search of a cure to cancer, exploring every avenue possible. One scientist, Dipanjan Pan at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagne, has been looking to scorpion venom for the answer, making progress every day that shows their toxins may be the key to future cancer treatments.
Scientists have long believed that lifestyle choices were the root causes for getting cancer, but now new research indicates that it's really just to blame on good ole fashioned "bad luck."
Many have argued that cancer is a largely modern illness - a consequence of food processing, industry, pollution, and other factors. But now archaeologists have strong evidence of cancer in the bones of a man who lived in Siberia 4,500 years ago, making him the oldest known victim of this terrible disease.
New research has found a disturbing link between an common soap ingredient and cancer. The same ingredient, a popularly used antimicrobial, can also be found in other common hygiene products, including toothpaste, and could potentially heighten a person's risk of developing liver fibrosis.
In new breakthrough research, scientists have successfully silenced a leading cancer-causing gene, an elusive protein called KRAS, which can hopefully one day lead to the development of more effective target drug therapies.
