Cancer

Modern medicine sees cancer as a disease in which malignant tissue formation occurs. The disruption of the cell cycle and cell death is present in all very different forms. Cancer refers to diseases in which metastasis formation is present or possible. The most important current types of treatment are surgical removal of tissue, radiotherapy, medical treatment and hyperthermic or electrical therapies. New approaches look at viral or vaccination therapies.

  • Genetic diversity facilitates cancer therapy

    The constant battle against infectious pathogens has had a decisive influence on the human immune system over the course of our evolution. A key role in our adaptation to pathogens is played by HLA molecules. These proteins activate the immune system by presenting it with fragments of pathogens that more

  • Scientists crack structure of a novel enzyme linked to cell growth and cancer

    RNA, or ribonucleic acid, is present in the cells of all living beings and required to synthesize proteins. A research team at the University of California, Riverside, has discovered the structure of a novel RNA-modifying enzyme, ZCCHC4, and identified the mechanism that controls how this enzyme rec more

  • Oxygen deficiency rewires mitochondria

    Mitochondria burn oxygen and provide energy for the body. Cells lacking oxygen or nutrients have to change their energy supply quickly in order to keep growing. In a study published in Nature, scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing have now shown that mitochondria are reprogr more
