New Cancer-Driving Mutation in 'Dark Matter' of the Cancer Genome

A research group has discovered a novel cancer-driving mutation in the vast non-coding regions of the human cancer genome, also known as the 'dark matter' of human cancer ...

Bone Cells Suppress Cancer Metastases

A subpopulation of bone cells releases factors that can halt the growth of breast cancer that's traveled to the bone, putting the cells in ...

Young Bone Marrow Rejuvenates Aging Mouse Brains

A new study has found that transplanting the bone marrow of young laboratory mice into old mice prevented cognitive decline in the old mice, preserving their memory and learning abilities. The ...

Leukemia Breakthrough: CircASXL1-1 Regulates BAP1 Deubiquitinase Activity in Leukemia

Researchers have identified covalently closed circular RNAs (circRNAs) from key genes involved in leukemia development and provided greater understanding of their roles in haematological ...

Researcher Seeks Safer, More Effective Leukemia Treatment

A potentially safer, more effective chemotherapy treatment for patients with blood-related cancers, such as leukemia, who need a particular bone marrow transplant procedure is under study. The ...

Nanoparticle for Overcoming Leukemia Treatment Resistance

One of the largest problems with cancer treatment is the development of resistance to anticancer therapies. A research team found that repurposing a commonly used chemotherapy drug using a ...

More Selective Elimination of Leukemia Stem Cells and Blood Stem Cells

Hematopoietic stem cells from a healthy donor can help patients suffering from acute leukemia. However, the side effects of therapies are often severe. Researchers have now shown how human healthy ...

Cellular Mechanism Involved in Krabbe Disease

Researchers determined which cells are involved in Krabbe disease and by which mechanism. They discovered that both myelin-forming cells, or Schwann cells, and macrophages require the GALC enzyme, ...

Cancer Mutation in Dual Role

Analyses of cell signals provide insight into the origin of severe inflammatory symptoms that appear in various types of blood cancer and point to possible therapeutic approaches: In around ...

Mutation's Role in Blood Cancers Revealed by Ideal Team-Up

After a Bone Injury, Shape-Shifting Cells Rush to the Rescue

Conventional thinking is that bone regeneration is left to a small number of mighty cells called skeletal stem cells, which reside within larger groups of bone marrow stromal ...

Cheap Drug May Alleviate Treatment-Resistance in Leukemia

A common and inexpensive drug may be used to counteract treatment resistance in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), one of the most common forms of blood cancer. The researchers will now ...

Cancer Study May Accidentally Help Researchers Create Usable Blood Stem Cells

A new study shows that cancer-causing MLL gene may also push pluripotent stem cells to make hematopoietic stem cells, a strong step in the decades-long effort to make personalizable, durable blood ...

Mutations in Donors' Stem Cells May Cause Problems for Cancer Patients

A new study suggests that extremely rare, harmful genetic mutations present in healthy donors' stem cells -- though not causing health problems in the donors -- may be passed on to cancer ...

Elevated Leukemia Incidence Is Found in World Trade Center Rescue and Recovery Workers

Responders who worked at the World Trade Center site after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, have an increased overall cancer incidence compared to the general population, particularly in thyroid ...

Investigational Drugs Block Bone Loss in Mice Receiving Chemotherapy

Studying mice, researchers have found a driver of bone loss related to cancer treatment. Radiation and chemotherapy can halt cell division in bone, which results in a stress response called ...

Human Immune Cells Produced in a Dish in World First

A research team has reproduced and visualized the earliest developmental steps in human immune cell production in the laboratory and are now set to advance our understanding of childhood diseases ...

Artificial Intelligence Tracks Down Leukemia

Artificial intelligence can detect one of the most common forms of blood cancer - acute myeloid leukemia -- with high reliability. Researchers at the DZNE and the University of Bonn have now shown ...

Acute Leukemia Patients Treated With Common Therapy Have Increased Risk for Heart Failure

Patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) or acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who are treated with anthracyclines are at a heightened risk of heart failure -- most often within one year of ...
