Predicting chemotherapy resistance in breast and ovarian cancer with BRCA epigenetics

New research discovers genomic and epigenomic BRCA alterations that can predict chemotherapy resistance in breast and ovarian cancers.   A new […]

IL-33 secreting senescent cells offer new target for obesity-based liver cancer

New research has discovered how senescent cells and their secretion of IL-33 can encourage immunosuppression and tumour expansion in obesity-linked […]

Cancer cells spread during sleep

A new study shows that breast cancer spreads more efficiently while patients are sleeping. The finding could significantly change the […]

Overcoming enzalutamide drug resistance in prostate cancer

Scientists have discovered a molecular pathway that may answer why some prostate cancers can resist an approved cancer drug. The […]

Cancer vaccine provokes a coordinated attack on tumours

A study in Nature describes a new type of cancer vaccine that works by obstructing a tactic used by tumours […]
