Purified cancer exosome samples

Help researchers study the role of exosomes in cancer development and metastasis



Underlying health linked to worse outcomes for melanoma, U-M study finds

Patients with decreased core muscle density were more likely to see their cancer spread to distant parts of the body



Key Enzyme in Melanoma Cell Development

Researchers have discovered a mechanism by which an enzyme regulates gene expression and growth in melanoma cells, a finding that could someday lead to more effective drugs to attack cancers and make them more treatable.



Melanoma not caused by early UVA light exposure

Early life exposure to ultraviolet A light does not cause melanoma in a fish model that previously made that connection, scientists claim.



The helpful sound of melanoma

Researchers are studying how photoacoustics, or a laser-induced ultrasound, could help scientists locate the general area of the lymph node where melanoma cells could be residing.



Genes that cause melanoma discovered

Scientists from the Queensland Institute of Medical Research have found two new genes that together double a person's risk of developing melanoma.



Virus-gene therapy against melanoma, genetics research

Researchers are injecting a modified herpes virus into melanoma tumors, hoping to kill the cancer cells while also bolstering the body's immune defenses against the disease.



Novel epigenetic markers of melanoma, biotechnology news

Scientists have mapped chemical modifications of DNA in the melanoma genome, finding new markers that will help develop more effective treatment strategies to fight this disease.



New therapeutic target for melanoma identified

A protein called Mcl-1 plays a critical role in melanoma cell resistance to a form of apoptosis called anoikis, according to research published recently.



Scientists create mouse model of melanoma

Researchers have developed a new mouse model that allows them to replicate normal pigment cells at the earliest stages of conversion to malignant skin cancer in humans.



Vegetable-based drug could inhibit melanoma

Compounds extracted from green vegetables such as broccoli and cabbage could be a potent drug against melanoma, according to cancer researchers.
