In the latest episode of the sixth season of Adorama's Through the Lens, the focus is on photographer Kathryn Dyer. Sacramento-based Dyer first forayed into the world of Instagram and became more serious about photography when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her husband bought a camera for them to share and take Kathryn's mind off her battle with cancer through nature photography se
Researchers at the Center for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) have developed a new targeted treatment for cancer. Chemotherapy drugs are wrapped in "nano-bubbles" called liposomes, which are then injected into the desired part of the body and made to release their payload on demand, by applying X-ray radiation...

Last week a jury in St. Louis awarded US$4.69 billion in damages to 22 women who were claiming Johnson & Johnson's talcum powder products contained asbestos and induced ovarian cancer. While this isn't the first legal action brought against the company in recent years over these allegations, this is by far the largest payout it has ever faced despite many experts still suggesting the links
A fascinating study by a team of researchers from Weill Cornell Medicine, Columbia University Irving Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian has found that the ketogenic diet may improve the efficacy of a new class of cancer drug that has been inexplicably showing disappointing results in early human clinical trials... Continue Reading How the ketogenic diet could improve efficacy of a new
Cancer is one of humanity's biggest killers, but scientists are coming up with some creative ways to fight back. Researchers at the University at Buffalo have developed new kinds of nanoparticles that can infiltrate, heat up and kill cancer cells more effectively and efficiently than similar methods...

The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is set to overturn a controversial recent court decision that proposed all coffee shops and makers in the state brand their product with a cancer warning label. The new government regulation is another chapter in the long-running battle over whether a cup of coffee is a legitimate cancer risk... Continue Reading The wa
Strong and light, spider silk is one of the most impressive materials in the natural world. Both the real thing and synthetic versions have been used to improve everything from clothing to car seats, cooling electronics to preserving produce, making sweet music or helping people hear it, and even patching up severed nerves. Now, scientists in Germany and Switzerland have found a new use fo
Two recently published studies are raising new concerns that the breakthrough CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing system could potentially trigger an increased cancer risk in cells edited using the technique. With human trials using the gene-editing technique set to commence this year, the scientists behind these new studies urge researchers to be aware of this newly discovered and dangerous cancer-d
Cancer can be a tricky foe, so the best way to fight it might not be with a direct attack, but to cut off its supply lines. One such method, known as gas embolotherapy, involves creating tiny bubbles in the tumor blood vessels, which block the blood supply and starve the cancer out. Now, researchers from China and France have found that the technique could also deal a second blow as a drug
A recently published case study from an ongoing clinical trial revealed an experimental immunotherapy treatment has cured a breast cancer patient. The 49-year-old patient with advanced breast cancer was given three months to live before enrolling into the trial. Within weeks her tumors had disappeared and 22 months later she is still in complete remission... Continue Reading Milestone immu
