Anti-inflammatory diet linked to reduced risk of early death

A new study finds that adhering to an anti-inflammatory diet is associated with lower risks of dying from any cause, dying from cardiovascular causes, and dying from cancer. In the study of 68,273 Swedish men and women aged 45 to 83 years who were followed for 16 years, participants who most closely followed an anti-inflammatory… Continue reading Anti-inflammatory diet linked to reduced risk of early death

Study suggests new strategies for using cell metabolism to treat cancer

Researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) have discovered that cell metabolism plays an important role in the ability of cells to start a survival program called autophagy, an unwanted side effect of some anti-cancer drugs that helps some tumor cells dodge treatment and eventually regrow into new tumors. These findings provides new insights for… Continue reading Study suggests new strategies for using cell metabolism to treat cancer

New genetic marker could help diagnose aggressive prostate cancer

Scientists from University of Turku have discovered a link between certain genetic mutations, the aggressiveness of prostate cancer, risk of developing the disease and poorer survival rates of patients. The gene, called ANO7, could play a vital role in improving diagnosis of prostate cancer patients. There is currently no clear way to diagnose aggressive prostate… Continue reading New genetic marker could help diagnose aggressive prostate cancer

Engineered cancer cells can fight primary and metastatic cancer

What if cancer cells could be re-engineered to turn against their own kind?  A new study led by researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital : The power of gene editing to take a critical step toward using cancer cells to kill cancer. The reports were promising results in preclinical models across multiple types of cancer… Continue reading Engineered cancer cells can fight primary and metastatic cancer

Discovery unlocks secrets behind cancer drug resistance

 University of Otago research provides insights into an underlying mechanism that could explain why new cancer therapies to help treat metastatic melanoma do not always work on patients, paving the way for predicting which patients will benefit from certain drugs. Their findings shed much needed light on why new immune checkpoint inhibitor therapies such as… Continue reading Discovery unlocks secrets behind cancer drug resistance

Off/on switch for DNA repair protein

Damage to DNA is a daily occurrence but one that human cells have evolved to manage. Mayo researchers have determined how one DNA repair protein gets to the site of DNA damage. The authors say they hope this discovery research will help identify new therapies for ovarian cancer. While the human genome is constantly damaged, cells have proteins that detect… Continue reading Off/on switch for DNA repair protein
