Lipid Nanoparticles Carry Gene-Editing Cancer Drugs Past Tumor Defenses

As they grow, solid tumors surround themselves with a thick, hard-to-penetrate wall of molecular defenses. Getting drugs past that barricade is notoriously difficult. Now, scientists have developed ...

Improved Protein Function Opens Way for New Drug Development Concept

Researchers describe how they have improved the ability of a protein to repair oxidative DNA damage and created a new protein function. Their innovative technique can lead to improved drugs for ...

New Technology Helps Reveal Inner Workings of Human Genome

Researchers have developed a new method to assess on a large scale the three-dimensional structure of the human genome, or how the genome folds. The genome is the complete set of genetic ...

Hair-Raising Research: Scientists Find Surprising Link Between Immune System, Hair Growth

Scientists have uncovered an unexpected molecular target of a common treatment for alopecia, a condition in which a person's immune system attacks ...

New Approach to Treatment of Deadly Kidney Cancer

Researchers have linked resistance to treatment for a deadly form of kidney cancer to low mitochondrial content in the cell. When the researchers increased the mitochondrial content with an ...

Microbial Link Between Western-Style Diet and Incidence of Colorectal Cancer Uncovered

New research builds the case that a Western-style diet -- rich in red and processed meat, sugar and refined grains/carbohydrates -- is tied to higher risk of colorectal cancer through the intestinal ...

'Structural Racism' Cited in Study of Breast-Biopsy Delays

Black and Asian women are more likely than white women to experience significant delays in getting breast biopsies after a mammogram identifies an abnormality. Moreover, those delays appear to be ...

Cancer Survivors Grew to 18 Million in the US; More Than Two-Thirds Aged 65 Years or Older

A new report shows more than 18 million Americans (8.3 million males and 9.7 million females) with a history of cancer were living in the United States as of January 1, 2022, with a little over 12 ...

Listeria-Based Booster Improves Vaccine's Protection Against Recurring Colon Cancer

New research in mice has paved the way for a Phase I clinical trial and has the potential to transform vaccines against HIV and ...

ALS May Be Linked to Both the Immune and Central Nervous Systems

The immune system may play a fundamental role along with the central nervous system in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as 'Lou Gehrig's disease,' researchers ...

Breast Duct Treatment for Early Breast Cancer Eliminates All Signs of Disease in Laboratory Experiments

Delivering a targeted immunotoxin into breast ducts via openings in the nipple wiped out all visible and invisible precancerous lesions in laboratory studies of very early stage breast ...

Pushing T Cells Down 'Memory Lane' May Improve Cancer Therapy

Scientists have identified proteins that help decide T cell fate and used the finding to improve CAR-T cell therapy in a solid tumor ...

Breast Cancer Spreads at Night, Study Shows

A new study shows that breast cancer metastases form more efficiently while patients are sleeping. The finding could significantly change the way cancer is diagnosed and treated in ...

Custom Suits for Worms That Really Deliver

Researchers have found that nematodes can be coated with a protective hydrogel sheath that can be engineered to carry functional cargo. This system could potentially be developed to deliver ...

Can We Save More Lives If We Let Resistant Bacteria Live?

Every day, people die of simple inflammation because bacteria can no longer be killed with antibiotics. So what do we do? Maybe we should spend less energy on killing them and more on ...

Plant Virus Plus Immune Cell-Activating Antibody Clear Colon Cancer in Mice, Prevent Recurrence

A new combination therapy to combat cancer could one day consist of a plant virus and an antibody that activates the immune system's 'natural killer' cells, shows a new study. In mouse ...

How Tumors Make Immune Cells 'Go Bad'

Investigators have discovered that cancerous tumors called soft-tissue sarcomas produce a protein that switches immune cells from tumor-attacking to tumor-promoting. The study could lead to improved ...

Vitamins, Supplements Are a 'Waste of Money' for Most Americans

Scientists say for non-pregnant, otherwise healthy Americans, vitamins are a waste of money because there isn't enough evidence they help prevent cardiovascular disease or cancer. They've ...

New Model Helps Identify Mutations That Drive Cancer

Scientists built a computer model that can rapidly scan the entire genome of cancer cells and identify mutations that occur more frequently than expected, suggesting that they are driving tumor ...

Single Brain Scan Can Diagnose Alzheimer's Disease

A single MRI scan of the brain could be enough to diagnose Alzheimer's disease, according to new ...

New Effective Combination Therapy for Pediatric T-Acute Leukemia

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common cancer affecting children. The T-ALL form of leukemia that emerges from early T lineage cells has a poorer prognosis than B-lineage ALL. The ...

Why Vaccination Against Malaria Quickly Loses Its Protective Effect

Scientists have studied the human immune response after immunization with the malaria pathogen Plasmodium falciparum. Their findings could explain why natural infections, to which people in endemic ...

More Than One Way to Skin a Tumor

The mechanism by which active inflammation occurs in parallel with immunosuppression in the tumor microenvironment has been identified. Results showed reduced gene expression of regulatory T cell ...

Targeting a Specific Protein in Smooth Muscle Cells May Dramatically Reduce Atherosclerotic Plaque Formation

A new study shows targeting a protein in smooth muscle cells can block and decrease buildup of atherosclerotic plaque in mouse models, according to ...
