The Company, in collaboration with Cytogen Corporation, is developing immunotherapies for prostate cancer, including a human monoclonal antibody directed against prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), a protein found on the surface of prostate cancer cells
About 30 years later, a researcher named James Ewing encountered Paget's theory by arguing that cancer cells
don't spread randomly throughout the circulation in search of fertile soil.
Although prostate cancer is often a slow-growing, noninvasive type of cancer, there are some cases where a deadly migration of cancer cells
invades other parts of the body.
The researchers injected one group of mice with lung cancer cells
that lacked RASSF1A and another group with the same kind of cells containing added, functional RASSF1A.
We think there is great market potential for FBS replacement in cancer cell
The virus appeared to act like a red cape waved before a bull: It directed the immune system's attention to cancer cells
, even distant ones, previously ignored.
ArQule's fundamental approach to treating cancer is to restore the natural biological function of these checkpoints and thereby to kill cancer cells
selectively while maintaining the integrity and function of healthy cells, thus avoiding the undifferentiated damage caused, for example, by chemotherapy or radiation.
Lead author Fernando LopezDiaz, Salk staff scientist, said the team aimed to uncover the diversification "switch" by which cancer cells
replicated but vary slightly from one another and that turning off this cellular process would strip cancer's ability to survive drug treatment, Science Daily reported.
If any remaining cancer cells
had continued to grow normally, the disease should have returned in weeks or months.
Tissue-engineered bone provides the 3D architecture for the cancer cells
which more closely resemble bone metastasis instead of growing the cancer cells
and bone cells on a flat Petrie dish.
Stress, diet and fatigue can wake up the cancer cells
, sometimes causing the cells to grow back, many times stronger and faster than ever.
Fractions (1 min) were collected, and triplicate aliquots were assayed for mitogenic activity in MCF-7 breast cancer cells
The third phase includes clinical trials in which RECAF(tm) will be used as a way to specifically deliver therapeutic agents to destroy the cancer cells
with minimal damage to normal tissues.
RESEARCHERS at America's St Louis University are destroying tumours with genetically engineered viruses that infect cancer cells
whilst leaving healthy cells unharmed.
The disease-fighting immune system is programmed to destroy abnormal cells, like cancer cells
