Making Brain Cancers in Children Respond Better to Treatment

Research has identified a small molecule compound that can activate the Wnt pathway in non-Wnt subtypes of medulloblastoma, making these aggressive forms of cancer more responsive to therapies. The ...

Novel Device to Improve Performance of Underactive Bladders

Researchers have developed a new device that can monitor bladder volume in real-time and effectively empty the ...

Standard Pathology Tests Outperform Molecular Subtyping in Bladder Cancer

While trying to develop a comparatively easy, inexpensive way to give physicians and their patients with bladder cancer a better idea of likely outcome and best treatment options, scientists found ...

Anthrax May Be the Next Tool in the Fight Against Bladder Cancer

Researchers have come up with a way to combine the anthrax toxin with a growth factor to kill bladder cancer cells and ...

Laboratory Studies Identify a Potential Way to Treat Human Cancers With ARID1A Mutations

A new study shows that tumor cells depleted of ARID1A -- a protein that acts as a cancer suppressor -- become highly sensitive to anticancer poly ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitor drugs after ...

Key Step Toward Cancer Treatments That Leave Healthy Cells Unharmed

Researchers have opened up a possible avenue for new cancer therapies that don't have the side effects that oftentimes accompany many current cancer treatments by identifying a protein ...

Technique Using Urine Suggest Individualize Bladder Cancer Treatment Possible

Researchers have devised a very promising non-invasive and individualized technique for detecting and treating bladder cancer. The method uses a 'liquid biopsy' -- a urine specimen -- ...

Nutritional Cues Regulate Pancreatic Tumor's 'Cell Drinking'

Desperate for nutrients, rapidly growing pancreatic tumors resort to scavenging 'fuel' through an alternative supply route, called macropinocytosis. Blocking this process, often described ...

Aggressive Prostate and Lung Cancers Are Driven by Common Mechanisms, Researchers Find

Researchers have discovered a common process in the development of late-stage, small cell cancers of the prostate and lung. These shared molecular mechanisms could lead to the development of drugs to ...

Researchers Compare Chemotherapy Regimens for Best Outcomes in Invasive Bladder Cancer

Patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer have been shown to benefit from chemotherapy prior to surgical removal of the bladder. But which type of chemotherapy leads to the best outcomes in terms ...

New Way to Break Cancer's Vicious Cycle

This study reveals how some tumors fuel their own growth and how stopping this vicious cycle could lead to new ...

One Step Closer to Bioengineered Replacements for Vessels and Ducts

Researchers bioprint complex tubular tissues to replace dysfunctional vessels and ducts in the ...

Medical Testing: Drop the C-Word to Reduce Anxiety and Overtreatment

Medical researchers are calling for the word 'cancer' to be dropped from some doctor-patient conversations in a bid to reduce patient anxiety and harm from over treatment. The appeal ...

Products of Omega-3 Fatty Acid Metabolism May Have Anticancer Effects

A class of molecules formed when the body metabolizes omega-3 fatty acids could inhibit cancer's growth and spread, researchers report in a new study in mice. In mice with tumors of osteosarcoma ...

New Findings on Bacteria in Female Bladders

A new study has found that the female bladder not only contains bacteria, but the microbes are similar to those found in the vagina. The finding could lead to improved diagnostic tests and treatments ...

Researchers Find Combination Can Enhance Ipilimumab Immunotherapy

Using a targeted therapy to block a protein that suppresses T cell activity could improve cancer treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors, researchers ...

Experimental Drug Restores Some Bladder Function After Spinal Cord Injury, Study Finds

An experimental drug that blocks abnormal neural communication after spinal cord injury could one day be the key to improving quality of life by improving bladder function, new research ...

Olfactory Receptor as Therapeutic Target in Bladder Cancer

Researchers have detected an olfactory receptor in the human bladder that might prove useful for bladder cancer therapy and ...

Cell Type Switch Helps Colon Cancer Evade Treatment, Study Suggests

Researchers have discovered that colon cancers are often resistant to existing drug treatments because they are composed of two different cell types that can replace each other when one cell type is ...

Soil Metals Linked With Cancer Mortality

Epidemiologists and geologists have found associations between esophageal cancer and soils where lead is abundant, lung cancer and terrains with increased copper content, brain tumor with areas rich ...
