A new study published in The Oncologist found that genetically engineered mouse models appear to be the most accurate preclinical predictor of how cancer-fighting drugs are delivered to melanoma patients. The study, led by UNC-Chapel Hill researchers along with colleagues in the Research Triangle Park, Pittsburgh and Austria, tested how four different types of mouse models predict the delivery of carboplatin, a commonly used anticancer drug, to melanoma tumors in patients. Durham, NC (PRWEB)...

Patients with the most common type of lung cancer are notoriously insensitive to chemotherapy drugs, including cisplatin. New findings related to the cellular pathways that regulate responses to cisplatin have now been published by Cell Press on July 26th in the journal Cell Reports. The findings reveal a potential biomarker that can be used to predict how these patients will respond to chemotherapy, as well as the patients' overall prognosis, paving the way for personalized treatment...

Connie K. Ho for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) recently revealed a new platinum compound that could eliminate cancer cells more effectively than cisplatin, a popular chemotherapy anticancer drug. Drugs that have platinum are the most widely used most powerful cancer drugs. On the downside, these agents have toxic side effects and the cancer cells can eventually become resistant; as such, the new discovery is exciting for...

Researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) are the first to report a new approach that integrates rational drug design with supramolecular nanochemistry in cancer treatment. Supramolecular chemistry is the development of complex chemical systems using molecular building blocks. The researchers utilized such methods to create nanoparticles that significantly enhanced antitumor activity with decreased toxicity in breast and ovarian cancer models. "This work is effectively moving...
