Microbiome May Hold Key to Identifying HPV-Infected Women at Risk for Pre-Cancer

Gardnerella bacteria in the cervicovaginal microbiome may serve as a biomarker to identify women infected with human papillomavirus (HPV) who are at risk for progression to precancer, according to a ... read more

Experiments in Mice and Human Cells Shed Light on Best Way to Deliver Nanoparticle Therapy for Cancer

Researchers in the cancer nanomedicine community debate whether use of tiny structures, called nanoparticles, can best deliver drug therapy to tumors passively -- allowing the nanoparticles to ... read more

Despite Failures, Chemo Still Promising Against Dangerous Childhood Brain Cancer, DIPG

The pediatric brain cancer known as diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is almost uniformly fatal. In part, this is due to where and how it grows, forming as a diffuse net of cells in a part of ... read more

Ultrafast Repeated Staining and Destaining of Cell Samples for Tumor Diagnostics

In the treatment of tumors, microenvironment plays an important role. It often contains immune cells that are so changed that they promote tumor growth. Scientists have introduced a method by which ... read more

How Trans Fats Assist Cell Death

Researchers have uncovered a molecular link between some trans fats and a variety of disorders, including cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. Their findings implicate their role in ... read more

Immunotherapy Using 'Young Cells' Offers Promising Option Against Cancer

A new study suggests that the age of certain immune cells used in immunotherapy plays a role in how effective it is. These cells -- natural killer (NK) cells -- appear to be more effective the ... read more

AI May Help Predict Responses to Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Systemic Therapies

Using standard-of-care computed tomography (CT) scans in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), researchers utilized artificial intelligence (AI) to train algorithms to predict ... read more
