Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital have a potential solution for how to more effectively kill tumor cells using cancer-killing viruses. The investigators report that trapping virus-loaded stem cells in a gel and applying them to tumors significantly improved survival in mice with glioblastoma multiforme, the most common brain tumor in human adults and also the most difficult to treat. The work, led by Khalid...

Patients with five to 10 metastatic brain tumors who receive Gamma Knife radiosurgery live as long as those with two to four tumors post-therapy NEW YORK, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A Japanese multi-institutional study(1) of 1,194 patients, has found that individuals with five to 10 tumors treated with Gamma Knife® stereotactic radiosurgery alone (no whole brain radiation therapy) fared as well as a group with two to four tumors who received this radiosurgery-only treatment. The...

3-D Printed Tumors Could Revolutionize Cancer Research
2014-04-26 06:12:21

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For years, cancer-research scientists have been using two-dimensional petri dish models to study and test potential treatments. But now, a team of scientists led by Drexel University’s Wei Sun has developed a method for 3-D printing living tumors – a development that could revolutionize cancer research. According to a report on the development recently published the journal Biofabrication, the team was able to print out viable...

Studies carry implications for understanding cancer Johns Hopkins researchers have discovered an unexpected phenomenon in the organs that produce sperm in fruit flies: When a certain kind of stem cell is killed off experimentally, another group of non-stem cells can come out of retirement to replace them. The discovery sheds light on the tiny "environments" that stem cells occupy in animal bodies and may help explain how stem cells in tumors replenish themselves, the researchers report...

A group of researchers in China and the US have successfully created a 3D model of a cancerous tumor using a 3D printer. The model, which consists of a scaffold of fibrous proteins coated in cervical cancer cells, has provided a realistic 3D representation of a tumor's environment and could help in the discovery of new drugs and cast new light on how tumors develop, grow and spread throughout the body. The results of the study have been published today, 11 April, in IOP Publishing's...

Three molecularly defined clusters could alter practice; 1 closely resembles deadly glioblastoma Comprehensive genomic analysis of low-grade brain tumors sorts them into three categories, one of which has the molecular hallmarks and shortened survival of glioblastoma multiforme, the most lethal of brain tumors, researchers reported at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting 2014. "The immediate clinical implication is that a group of patients with tumors previously...

Researchers studying a rare, always fatal brain tumor in children have found several molecular alterations that drive the cancer, according to a new study from scientists at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center and McGill University. The findings identify potential new targets for drug treatments. The new research could help physicians choose targeted agents with a better chance of combating pediatric high-grade astrocytomas, which are extremely difficult to...
