Does the presence of fungi in cancer cells speed up tumour growth?

Written by Aaron Khemchandani, Science Writer. The link between bacteria and cancer has long been evidenced by researchers. Now, however, […]

Evolutionary arms race: artificial selection for host resistance to tumour growth

Researchers have used artificial selection to observe the evolutionary arms race between tumour cells and the host immune response. Evolutionary […]

Method developed to identify treatment resistant cancer cells in tumours

Researchers have developed a novel way to understand tumour heterogeneity that could be used to prevent cancer relapse. The study, […]

Multi-omics study helps unravel how germ cell tumours develop and differentiate

Written by Miyako Rogers, Science Writer A new study investigates the origins and development of germ cell tumours (GCT), which […]

Genome-wide CRISPR and tumour suppressor genes could open new pathways for discovering anticancer drugs

Researchers at the University of Texas have performed genome-wide CRISPR screens to uncover vulnerabilities critical for discovering anticancer drugs. The […]

Arming CAR-T cells to fight solid tumours

Written by Charlotte Harrison, Science Writer  Immunotherapy with chimeric antigen receptor T cells (CAR-T cells) has yielded impressive anticancer responses […]

Iron Levels Target Tumour Drug to Cancer Cells

Written by Vered Smith, Science Writer  Researchers have altered a pre-existing drug so that it is only activated in RAS-mutated […]

How do tumour cells use collagen to become dormant?

Researchers have discovered that collagen is key for the ability of tumour cells to enter a dormant life cycle, with […]

A new strategy to combat solid tumours with neoantigen-based immunotherapy

A preclinical study has provided in vitro and in vivo evidence for using mutated KRAS epitopes as a viable target […]

Pan-cancer tumour organoids pave the way towards precision medicine

Researchers have developed a platform of pan-cancer tumour organoids and a neural-network-based drug assay, that has the potential to advance […]
