A new study charts the slow build-up of genetic mutations. The researchers are surprised to find that even healthy human tissue carries many mutants.
Researchers have been developing a ‘universal’ blood test that can quickly detect the presence of cancer. The scientists are now working to improve it.
The potency of cancer treatments is often reduced by a lack of oxygen in and around the tumor. Researchers have found an existing drug that might help.
The latest study to investigate the relationship between regular aspirin use and liver cancer risk finds a significant positive interaction.
There are several risk factors associated with mouth cancer. A recent study conducted in Taiwan might add another to the list: air pollution.
Two new studies show that the use of complementary and alternative medicines is widespread among people who have been diagnosed with cancer.
Nanoparticles can boost the immune system’s natural killer cells in the fight against cancer, making immunotherapy successful in more patients.
A new phase I clinical trial looks at whether a modified bacterial strain is safe and effective in attacking stubborn, treatment-resistant cancer tumors.
A new cancer vaccine shows promise for treating a range of more aggressive HER2-positive cancers in an early, phase I clinical trial.
A systematic review of 71 studies suggests that regular aspirin intake may help treat cancers such as colon cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer.
A new study focusing on nuclear pores finds that manipulating certain cell features could help to stop cancer cells from thriving.
Radiation dermatitis occurs when radiotherapy, a standard cancer treatment, damages the healthy skin cells. People can ease skin redness and peeling with calming skincare routines, some of which we explain here.
Scientists have found some surprising common ground between the Zika virus and brain cancer. They hope that a Zika vaccine may help combat glioblastoma.
A large multinational cohort study finds that eating foods with a low nutritional quality on a regular basis is linked with a heightened risk of cancer.
Scientists reveal that targeting a pathway in cancer cells that controls the motion of their mitochondria could make them more yielding to radiotherapy.
Scientists have uncovered a previously uncharted mechanism of cell growth that helps several cancers resist rapamycin and similar drugs.
Infections with one type of bacteria increase the risk for stomach cancer. Now, specialists have identified exactly which bacterial strain may be at fault.
Aggressive brain cancer cells are able to prolong their own lifespans indefinitely. How does this happen, and what strategy might curb this mechanism?
In this article, we outline some of the most interesting recent findings from cancer research, covering work from a range of institutions and journals.
Targeting cell metabolism could stop cancer cells from using a survival mechanism called autophagy to escape treatment and seed new tumors, says new study.
