New method predicts the course of cancer

Research from Germany shows that microRNAs predict recurrence risk of head and neck tumours



Cell line models and media for difficult to culture tumour types

Directly derived from patient tumours without any genetic manipulation, these new products provide the assurance of primary cells with long-term reproducibility and scalability



3D imaging of biomedical samples

Focus motor supplied by Prior Scientifc enables the Mesolens microscope to provide highly accurate imaging in the Z-Axis



Drug-resistant tumours

A Personal DeltaVision cell microscopy imaging system supplied by Image Solutions UK Ltd. is assisting scientists at Cancer Research UK to understand how tumours develop drug resistance.



Researchers have identified why cancer tumours resist drugs designed to 'starve' tumours

The findings demonstrate how cancer cells detect glucose levels and have the ability to survive with virtually no blood supply in the middle of a tumour mass



Healthy cells 'collaborate' with tumours to help build new blood vessels

New study shows how healthy ‘collaborator’ cells build a beneficial environment around tumours to help cancer grow



Scientists find genes that make brain tumours resistant to treatment

Two genes have been pinpointed that can predict whether patients with a deadly brain tumour will respond to the gold standard treatment



Marking brain tumours

Researchers have developed a way to enhance how brain tumours appear in MRI scans and during surgery, making the tumours easier for surgeons to identify and remove.



Fluorescent probes light up cancerous tumours

A team of researchers has developed biological probes that can stick to and light up tumours in mice.



How brain tumours outsmart drugs

Researchers have shown one way in which gliomas, a deadly type of brain tumour, can evade drugs aimed at blocking a key cell signaling protein, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR),that is crucial for tumour growth.



Nano Cocktail kills tumours

A team of researchers has developed a 'cocktail' of different nanometre-sized particles that work in concert within the bloodstream to locate, adhere to and kill cancerous tumours.



Delivering Medicine Directly into a Tumours

Researchers have identified a peptide that specifically recognises and penetrates cancerous tumours but not normal tissues.



Brain tumours in childhood

The first study of the lasting impact of these tumours -- the most common solid malignancies in childhood -- shows that survivors have ongoing cognitive problems.



High-Quality Images of Small Tumours

A new study shows that combining high resolution and high sensitivity collimation provides better quality images when using single photon emission computed tomography scans, said researchers.



Targeting tumours using tiny gold particles

Researchers have developed tiny gold particles that can home in on tumours, and then, by absorbing energy from near-infrared light and emitting it as heat, destroy tumours with minimal side effects.



Blood proteins may combat tumours

A recent discovery by researchers could clear the way for a new drug that inhibits tumour growth in cancer patients and could potentially help in the healing of wounds.



Inhibiting tumours

Researchers have shown that they can kill prostate cancer cells in the laboratory and in experimental animal models by blocking a signalling protein.



Shining light on tumours

A technique that specifically tags tumours responding to chemotherapy may offer a new strategy for determining a cancer treatment's effectiveness within days of starting treatment.



Comprehensive classification for genetic make-up tumours

Information about the genetic make-up of tumours should, in the long term, help clinicians decide on the most effective course of treatment for patients with cancer.



Robot assisted surgery to treat pancreatic tumours

This month Fox Chase Cancer Center performed the world's first successful minimally invasive distal pancreatectomy using the ViKY system's revolutionary robotic, compact laparoscope holder.
