Active substance from plant slows down aggressive eye cancer

Researchers are testing a substance from the leaves of the coralberry

22-Mar-2019

An active substance that has been known for 30 years could unexpectedly turn into a ray of hope against eye tumors. This is shown by a study conducted by researchers from the Universities of Bonn and Magdeburg together with US colleagues. The plant leaves of which contain the tested substance is ...

Cross-species cancer comparison uncovers new drug targets

Drug targets for a form of melanoma from genetic mutations found in humans, dogs and horses

13-Feb-2019

New drug targets for a rare form of melanoma may result from the discovery of similar genetic mutations found in humans, dogs and horses under a first-ever tri-species DNA sequencing study involving a University of Guelph researcher. Melanoma is a cancer that most commonly occurs in the skin in ...

Antibodies to a retina protein to be used as a kidney cancer marker

Suggestion of new method for diagnosing kidney cancer

22-Jan-2019

Sechenov University together with their German colleagues suggest a new highly sensitive, quick, and pain-free method for diagnosing kidney cancer. This method is based on measuring of the immune response to arrestin-1, a retina protein that is synthesized in the cancerous cells of ...

Machine-learning driven findings uncover new cellular players in tumor microenvironment

Involvement of adipocytes in nivolumab response in ipilimumab resistant melanoma patients

18-Oct-2018

New findings presented by CytoReason reveals possible new cellular players in the tumor microenvironment that could impact the treatment process for the most in-need patients - those who have already failed to respond to ipilimumab (anti-CTLA4) immunotherapy. Once validated, the findings could ...

Loss of Cilia Leads to Melanoma

03-Jul-2018

Most cells in the human body have a cilium, a slender cell protuberance that picks up signals from the cell’s external environment. Researchers at the University of Zurich have now shown that these fine sensory antennae play a key role in the formation of melanoma. When cilia are prevented from ...
