R-CHOP chemotherapy uses a combination of five different drugs to treat specific types of cancer, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Learn more about how this treatment works and the potential side effects here.
Macrophages, the immune cells that ‘eat’ pathogens and cell debris, are often ineffective against cancer cells. How can we co-opt them to attack tumors?
Cancer-fighting foods include apples, berries, and fatty fish. These foods may help prevent cancer and promote general health. Learn more about the best cancer-fighting foods here.
There are many benefits to fasting. It may even play a role in the prevention and treatment of cancer. There are also some potential risks to be aware of. Learn more about fasting and cancer here.
Signs that chemotherapy is not working include tumor growth and metastasis. Radiation and immunotherapy may be effective alternative treatments. Learn more about what to do if chemotherapy is not working here.
A new experimental device may be able to absorb chemotherapy drugs after they have reached cancer tumors but before they can reach healthy tissue.
Scientists reveal how cancer ‘tricks’ immune cells into working for tumors rather than against them, and a molecule that may stop this deceptive mechanism.
Researchers investigating a new biomarker for colorectal cancer have also uncovered a novel intervention that might help treat a range of cancer types.
Researchers from the United Kingdom are currently testing the accuracy of a newly developed breath test that could diagnose cancer in a noninvasive way.
Research has linked low vitamin D levels with a range of conditions, including bowel cancer. But, without magnesium, vitamin D may not function properly.
By combining two common cancer drugs, researchers have found a more effective way to treat colorectal cancer and reduce unpleasant side effects.
New research finds that combining the drug metformin with an antihypertensive drug cuts off the energy supply to cancer cells and inhibits tumor growth.
A ‘sprayable gel’ embedded with nanoparticles carrying drugs that boost immunity controlled tumor recurrence at surgery site and at distant sites in mice.
Appendix cancer is very rare, and many people experience no symptoms in the early stages. Doctors often diagnose this cancer when it spreads to other organs or after they remove a person’s appendix due to appendicitis. Learn more here.
Researchers use nanosensors to detect intracellular interactions that may signal cancer very early on. Their results may help detect lymphocytic leukemia.
‘Chemo brain’ affects many people who have undergone cancer treatment. What happens in the brain, and how can we reverse this effect?
Study reveals a common cellular mechanism through which bacterial infection could promote cancer and increase resistance to anticancer drugs.
Cancer cells have a unique pattern of chemical tags on their DNA, which differs from that of healthy cells and could serve as the basis for a universal test.
Researchers have discovered a new drug combination that may be able to boost cancer treatment while also preventing tumors from becoming therapy-resistant.
Either reducing glucose supply or altering its metabolism in cancer cells could greatly improve effectiveness of virus-based treatments, a study reveals.
