Ludwig researchers show that infecting just 1 tumor with a virus could boost the systemic effectiveness of cancer immunotherapy A Ludwig Cancer Research study suggests that the clinical efficacy of checkpoint blockade, a powerful new strategy to harness the immune response to treat cancers, might be dramatically improved if combined with oncolytic virotherapy, an investigational intervention that employs viruses to destroy tumors. Published today in the journal Science Translational...

It is not only genetics that predispose to bowel cancer; microbes living in the gut help drive the development of intestinal tumors, according to new research in mice published in the March issue of The Journal of Experimental Medicine. Bowel cancer, also called colorectal cancer, results from a series of genetic changes (mutations) that cause healthy cells to become progressively cancerous, first forming early tumors called polyps that can eventually become malignant. Although mutations...

New treatment center is first of its kind in the nation. St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 27, 2014 This month, brain tumor patient Charlie North became the first patient at St. Louis Children’s Hospital to undergo proton beam therapy, a type of radiation that holds great promise for pediatric patients. In late November of last year, Julia and Jake North of Paris, Ill., had their lives turned upside down when they received news that Charlie, the oldest of their 6-year-old triplets, had a...

Beating cancer is all about early detection, and new research from the University of South Carolina is another step forward in catching the disease early. A team of chemists is reporting a new way to detect just a few lurking tumor cells, which can be outnumbered a billion to one in the bloodstream by healthy cells. The researchers have constructed an ultrasensitive nanoprobe that can electrochemically sense as few as four circulating tumor cells, and it doesn’t require any enzymes to...

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Cedars-Sinai animal study may lead to human trial of experimental, compact intraoperative device to aid removal of malignant brain tumors Researchers at the Cedars-Sinai Maxine Dunitz Neurosurgical Institute and Department of Neurosurgery have developed a unique, compact, relatively inexpensive imaging device to "light up" malignant brain tumors and other cancers. The experimental system consists of a special camera designed and developed at Cedars-Sinai...

Cancer cells have long been known to have higher rates of the energy-generating metabolic pathway known as glycolysis. This enhanced glycolysis, a phenomenon known as the Warburg effect, is thought to allow cancer cells to survive the oxygen-deficient conditions they experience in the center of solid tumors. A study in The Journal of Cell Biology reveals how damaged cells normally switch off glycolysis as they shut down and shows that defects in this process may contribute to the early stages...
