Immunotherapy of precancerous skin lesions may prevent squamous cell carcinoma

Added: 26.03.2019 20:21 | 4 views | 0 comments

A treatment previously shown to clear the precancerous skin lesions called actinic keratosis now appears to reduce the chance that the treated skin will develop squamous cell carcinomas, the second most common form of skin cancer.

Cancer comparison across species highlights new drug targets

Added: 26.03.2019 20:21 | 5 views | 0 comments

Cancer genes in mucosal melanoma, a rare and poorly understood subtype of melanoma, have been compared in humans, dogs and horses for the first time. Researchers sequenced the genomes of the same cancer across different species to pinpoint key cancer genes. The results give insights into how cancer evolves across the tree of life and could guide the development of new therapies.

Unraveling the genetic causes of skin cancer

Added: 26.03.2019 20:21 | 4 views | 0 comments

Medical researchers are helping to identify the genetic factors that lead to squamous cell carcinoma. In a new article, they show how the interaction between a cell signaling pathway called MET and a gene, Tpl2, contributes to skin cancer progression.

Cutting the legs off cancer

Added: 26.03.2019 20:21 | 3 views | 0 comments

Melanoma skin cancer tumors grow larger and are more likely to metastasize due to interactions between a pair of molecules, according to experiments in mice and human cells. The results may restore the potential for a type of cancer therapy previously abandoned in clinical trials. The results also implicate one molecule already connected to obesity and dementia as a potential cause of metastasis, or spread of cancer cells to other areas of the body.

How a protein factor contributes to cancer cell migration

Added: 26.03.2019 20:21 | 4 views | 0 comments

Researchers have discovered a new protein factor that contributes to a fibroblast cell's ability to migrate to a wound and participate in its healing process. The study's results could help scientists prevent cancer cells from using the same mechanisms to move throughout the body and spread.

Study explains why tall individuals are more prone to cancer

Added: 26.03.2019 20:21 | 3 views | 0 comments

For most cancers, risk increases dramatically with age. But what about the effect of having more cells in the body? Might taller people be more prone to cancer because they have more cells? Yes, according to an evolutionary biologist who examined data from four large-scale surveillance projects on 23 cancer categories.
