(Ivanhoe Newswire)--Researchers are gaining insight on how to slow the growth of tumors via angiogenesis inhibitors. Angiogenesis is the process involving the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones. This is a normal process for growth and development as well as wound healing. Angiogenesis has also been proven to be a fundamental step in transitioning tumors from a dormant state to a malignant one which leads to the use of inhibitors which eliminate blood supply to these tumors....

Scientists attached to VIB and K.U.Leuven have succeeded in decoding a potential new anti-cancer mechanism. The researchers discovered that normalizing abnormal tumor blood vessels through HRG (histidine-rich glycoprotein) prevents metastasis of tumor cells and enhances chemotherapy efficiency. In tumors, vessels formation is disturbed, leading to inefficient delivery of chemotherapeutic drugs and allowing cancer cells to escape to other parts of the body (metastasis). The normalization of...

By Patricia Reaney LONDON (Reuters) - A smart anti-cancer bomb that acts like a Trojan horse can penetrate deep into tumors where it explodes and destroys cancerous cells without harming healthy ones, scientists said Wednesday. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) who devised the molecular size bomb tested it in mice with skin or lung cancer. Mice given the treatment lived more than three times longer than untreated rodents. The scientists believe it could have...

Word of the Day
mallemaroking
  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
