Brandeis scientists bring us a step closer to understanding how to control cancer cells without harming healthy ones The nasty side effects of radiation and chemotherapy are well known: fatigue, hair loss and nausea, to name a few. Cancer treatment can seem as harsh as the disease because it can't differentiate healthy cells from cancerous cells, killing both. But what if there were a way to control or stop the growth of cancer cells without harming other cells? Brandeis biologist...

The fight against cancer is not won in a single battle: Long after a cancer has been beaten into remission, it can return. The reason for this is under debate, and much is unclear. New research led by Weizmann Institute scientists shows that, at least for one type of blood cancer, the source of cancer recurrence is in a set of cells that do not proliferate as quickly as regular cancer cells, and thus able to survive chemotherapy. The findings, which appeared today in the journal Blood, have...

Epidemiologists have long warned that, in addition to causing obesity, eating too much fat and sugar puts a person at greater risk for colon cancer. Now, researchers at Temple University have established a link that may explain why. The findings, “Epigenetic Differences in Normal Colon Mucosa of Cancer Patients Suggest Altered Dietary Metabolic Pathways,” were published in the March issue of the American Association for Cancer Research´s journal, Cancer Prevention...

The American Cancer Society estimates that 44,000 new cases of pancreatic cancer will be diagnosed this year and that 37,000 people will die from the disease. These are not strong odds. A new drug, rigosertib, allows pancreatic cancer cells to rush through replication — and then stops them cold, killing them in in the middle of a step called M phase. Healthy cells that don´t rush are unharmed. Data from a phase I clinical trial of patients with advanced pancreatic cancer and...

The internet is awash with stories of how silver can be used to treat cancer. Now, lab tests have shown that it is as effective as the leading chemotherapy drug - and may have fewer side-effects. Results from the study at the University of Leeds, published in Dalton Transactions, show that particular silver compounds are as toxic to cancer cells as the platinum-based drug Cisplatin, which is widely used to treat a range of cancers. But the crucial difference is that silver is thought to...

Scientists at Warwick Medical School have made an important discovery about the mechanism controlling the body´s ℠fat switch´, shedding new light on our understanding of how proteins regulate appetite control and insulin secretion. This research, led by Professor Victor Zammit, Head of Metabolic and Vascular Health at Warwick Medical School, found that the enzyme known as ℠Carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1A´ (CPT1) has a switch which is thrown depending on the...

The EuroMed Foundation, a holistic cancer treatment center, stresses the importance of choosing healthy lifestyle habits and other preventive measures to minimize the risk of cancer. Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) July 16, 2011 The medical team at the EuroMed Foundation (http://www.euro-med.us), which is an Arizona cancer center, recently advised men and women to adopt healthy lifestyle habits for the prevention of chronic disease. Dr. Robert Zieve, an attending physician at the holistic cancer...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- It is natural to blame chemo therapy failure on the malignant cancer cells themselves, but an unlikely antagonist has recently been identified: healthy stress response cells.  These cells protect our organs in times of crisis, but new research shows that they may also be protecting cancer cells during chemo therapy. In the process of organ homeostasis, the organ responds to stressful conditions by producing a stress signal that solicits help from protective...

Cancer cells grow so fast that they can outstrip their blood supply, leaving them short of oxygen. The cells then produce energy in a way that needs less oxygen but more sugar. Researchers at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute have designed an experimental drug that chokes off that sugar supply, causing the cells to self destruct. The agent, called OSU-CG12, is an example of a new class of anticancer...
