New Method May Destroy Tumour Cells in the Brain

Researchers may have unlocked a new methodology to eradicate tumour cells in the brain. Experts from the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) and Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) may have found an answer in destroying Tumour cells which have already metastasised to the brain. Cancer-Killing VirusThe team of researchers have created Cancer-killing viruses which could […]

Zika Virus as Potential Treatment for Brain Cancer

Abnormal growth in brain cells leads to Brain Tumour (mass cancerous tissue). Malignant tumor grows vigorously and invades the surrounding tissues by taking up their nutrition. They take up space in the skull and pressure the nearby tissues thereby distorting brain functions. Patients with Brain Tumours often experience weakness, headaches, nausea, behavioral changes, memory loss

New Drug Targets Genetic Mutations Common to Various Cancers

Most types of cancer medication combat tumours by targeting specific forms of mutation, usually unique to specific types of cancer. When tested across varying forms of cancer, results are mixed. Larotrectinib is a new drug which is being developed to target a cancer-causing genetic mutation present in various forms of cancer. It has the potential

Researchers Test Ethanol as a Lethal Injection for Destroying Tumours

In the developed world and rich countries, Cancer Therapy is expensive. On the other hand, in the developing countries, it may not be available at all. There is a lack of advanced technology available in the countries belonging to the developing world. Countries in the developing world are still witnessing short supply of medical personnel.

Scientists Discover a New and Effective Cancer Treatment

Scientists have discovered that Caspase Independent Cell Death (CICD) led to complete killing of the cancer cells or tumours in the experimental models, and decreased the risk of both side effects and recurrence. CICD has proved useful in completely removing the tumours to kill all the cancer cells. Existing treatments including Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy, and Radiation

Could RNA Therapies, Bacteria, and Viruses Be The Future Of Cancer Treatment?

Bacteria and Virus Use For Cancer TreatmentBy nature, bacteria and viruses have a self-amplifying property and can be tumour-selective, stimulating the immune system to kill the cancer cells. According to Dr Ramon Alemany of the Catalan Institute of Oncology in Barcelona, these properties make bacteria and viruses great anti-cancer agents. In 1890, William Coley introduced

Genes carry different importance for Brain Cancer

PHD student, Mahmood Faraz at the Department of Radiation Sciences, Umeå University has explained that understanding the role that genes play in either promoting or holding back tumour growth, will assist in understanding the best approach to a planned course of cancer treatment. A dissertation, authored by Farez, focussed on two genes: LRIG1 and LRIG2.

Understanding the Link Between Cancer Metastasis and Hair Loss

Many laboratories around the country have been paying attention to understanding how cancer develops. This implies gaining knowledge about how such cells migrate from the primary tumour to distant sites in the body and also about developing therapies to inhibit this process. Cell Migration and MetastasisResearchers at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) identified

A Connection Found Between Mouth bacteria and Esophageal Cancer

A study which involved a sample of 120,000 individuals has identified that two different forms of bacteria which cause gum disease may increase the risk of an individual developing Esophageal Cancer. The study analysed the microbes from the mouths of the sample. An NYU Langone Health, Perlmutter Cancer Centre study in New York, USA has
