An accurate diagnosis at an earlier stage could avoid chemotherapy.
Currently, the core biopsy is a fairly common practice to take samples of breast tissue in suspected there may be the presence of cancer cells, so that they can be examined under a microscope. Continue reading
1. Patient’s blood is taken
2. Mofica is genetically normal lymphocytes or T cells
3. It is used to convert DNA to cells in “tumor-reactive”
4. Modified cells are injected into the patient
5. The modified cells attack the malignancies
Two patients in the worst kind of skin cancer were declared free of the disease, after which they are applying novel genetic therapies. Continue reading
The study found a relationship between the consumption of mandarin and reduction of liver disease.
Japanese scientists discovered that the key is a vitamin A compounds called carotenoids, responsible for giving the fruit its orange color. Continue reading
The genetic map shows that nearly 200 mutated genes, most previously unknown, help tumors emerge, grow and expand.
The discovery could also lead to better ways to diagnose cancer in its early stages, where treatment is easier and can be customized, according to the magazine Science. Continue reading
A team from the University of California studied mice that inherited a wrong number of chromosomes are rich in genes and found that this error had caused cancer in some animals, but had avoided the development of the disease in others.
The researchers hope that in future, be able to manufacture drugs that block the supply of the correct number of chromosomes to new cells in order to destroy certain cancers. Continue reading
They estimate that the gene affected annually creates approximately 100 cases of breast cancer in the UK.
Two damaged copies of the gene also appears to cause a serious blood disorder in children, as reported in the journal Nature Genetics. Continue reading
Eating broccoli and cauliflower regularly reduces the risk of prostate cancer, according to a team of U.S. researchers.
A study involving 1,300 men suggests that these vegetables are better than others to curb the growth of aggressive tumors.
Although it is less likely that obese people suffer from prostate cancer, are more likely to die from a variety of more aggressive disease, a new study.
Researchers at Umea University in Sweden discovered that it is much less likely to develop cancer in people who are resistant to insulin, a pre-diabetic condition linked to obesity. Continue reading
The investigation of a U.S. scientist Results indicated that immune cells taken from healthy person can be used to battle cancer in another person.
The study, published in the journal New Scientist, says that some people seem to have cells that have a greater ability to tackle cervical cancer cells in test tubes. Continue reading
