Promising Treatment for Aggressive Childhood Cancer
Can New Molecule Stop Cancer from ‘Tricking’ the Immune System?
The latest promising treatment for aggressive childhood cancer neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of childhood cancer, is the KSP inhibitor. The study was led by researchers at Lund University in Sweden, and is published in the journal Science Translational Medicine. About 800 children in the US are diagnosed with neuroblastoma annually. Neuroblastoma is an aggressive cancer of […]
Childhood Cancer Survivors @ Higher Risk of Mental Illness
Cancer has many sly ways in which it tricks the immune system into sparing it or even into boosting its spread. Now, however, new research is throwing a wrench in cancer’s deception plans. A molecule that scientists have designed stops cancerous cells from tricking the immune system into sustaining their growth. One such way involves […]
Researchers Engineer A ‘Cancer Differentiation Therapy’ For Leukaemia.
The results of a new study suggest that being labelled “a child survivor” leads to problems in adulthood While many Children with Cancer now survive, new research has shown that they are at greater risk of poor mental health outcomes, such as anxiety and substance abuse, according to a Canadian oncologist who was surprised at […]
Researchers Identify New Role for Cytokine VEGFA in the Metastasis of Neuroblastoma
Some great strides being made in Leukaemia Research… Researchers at the Stanford University have discovered that when a certain aggressive leukemia is causing havoc in the body, the solution may be to force the cancer cells to grow up and behave. After a chance observation in the lab, the researchers found a method that can […]
Some really great research going on at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the University of Southern California. Healthy bone is continuously involved in a dynamic process that includes bone deposition and bone resorption. However, when a person has cancer that spreads to the bone and bone marrow, the tissue becomes increasingly fragile, and this process is […]
