After more than 10 years of research, the US government's National Toxicology Program (NTP) has released its final report into the effects of radio frequency radiation (RFR), like that emitted by cell phones, on rats and mice. The results suggest that high levels of RFR exposure can cause some cancers in the animals, however the conclusions have been labeled as "weak" and impossible to equ
While investigating a protein whose production is known to be elevated in a wide range of cancers, a team of researchers has inadvertently discovered a powerful new metabolic regulator that in early mouse experiments has reduced the animal's fat levels by a third...

A large clinical trial is moving ahead at more than 40 hospitals in Australia and New Zealand exploring the efficacy of an exciting new blood test designed to help doctors determine whether a patient needs to undergo chemotherapy following surgery to remove cancerous tumors...

Discoveries of potentially life-saving peptides in the venom of deadly animals are, counter-intuitively, not all that rare. Scorpions, rattlesnakes and funnel-web spiders have all provided scientists with promising building blocks for next-generation medicines, and a dangerous Australian arachnid has again reared its head with a compound in its venom found to be a potent killer of melanoma
Mostly known for its lustrous fleece and predilection for vigorous spitting, the humble alpaca may soon be more famous for its novel immune system. A study has discovered that the animals produce a unique nanobody that could be recruited into a new treatment for cancer...

A new study is compellingly comparing cancer cell populations to parasites, describing how it can alter the body's ability to metabolize glucose creating more energy sources that help tumors grow. One of those strategies, of course, involves reducing a type of gut bacteria that keeps blood glucose levels in check... Continue Reading How cancer grows by parasitically altering its host's gut
Early results from a phase 1 clinical trial into the safety and efficacy of a new cancer vaccine is suggesting promise for a new treatment designed to stimulate the immune system into attacking certain cancers known to overexpress a specific protein...

Results from a recent randomized clinical trial have found autologous fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) can effectively restore patient's gut microbiome after major antibiotic treatments. The study examined a group of cancer patients finding that fecal transplants can quickly and safely restore a compromised microbiome within days of treatment... Continue Reading Fecal transplants hel
Skin cancer might seem like the easiest cancer to deal with – after all, it's right there on the outside of the body, so removing it should be simple and safe, right? But treatment often still requires chemotherapy, which is delivered intravenously and can cause a whole range of unpleasant side effects. Now, researchers have made the first steps towards a kind of chemo that can be "painted
doctors fit the 3D-printed plate into place perfectly – a technique that will eliminate the need to model an implant in the operating room and reduce patient risk. The post veterinarians 3D-print a piece of a skull for a dachshund with cancer appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine. is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
