My story started about 4 […]

Nanorobots Programmed to Destroy a Tumor!

They successfully test a system in mice that fights #cancer by letting the tumor starve without attacking healthy cells. New ways to fight cancer The films Fantastic Voyage (1966) and The Imaginary Chip (1987) imagined what it would be like to put a miniature manned submarine inside a person capable of traveling through the bloodstream to repair the damaged tissues of […]

Throwing molecular wrench into gene control machine leads to ‘melting away’ of leukemia

Cancer researchers today announced they have developed a way of sidelining one of the most dangerous “bad actors” in leukemia. Their approach depends on throwing a molecular wrench into the gears of an important machine that sets genes into motion, enabling cancer cells to proliferate.

Blood testing via sound waves may replace some tissue biopsies

Scientists from MIT and other institutions have developed a microfluidic device that uses sound waves to isolate cellular packets called exosomes from blood samples, which could be used to diagnose diseases such as cancer or fetal abnormalities.

Nanomachines that drill into cancer cells killing them in just 60 seconds developed by scientists

Nanomachines which can drill into cancer cells, killing them in just 60 seconds, have been developed by scientists. The tiny spinning molecules are driven by light, and spin so quickly that they can burrow their way through cell linings when activated. In one test conducted at Durham University the nanomachines

Gold could be used to treat cancer, scientists say

Tiny flecks of gold could be used in the fight against cancer, new research has suggested. Scientists at Edinburgh University have just completed a study which shows the precious metal increased the effectiveness of drugs used to treat lung cancer cells. Minute fragments, known as gold nanoparticles, were encased in a chemical device by the research team.

Cancer-associated mutations are common in patients with unexplained low blood counts

Patients with unexplained low blood counts and abnormally mutated cells who do not fit the diagnostic criteria for recognized blood cancers should be described as having clonal cytopenias of undetermined significance (CCUS), suggest University of California, San Diego School of Medicine researchers in a recent paper published in the journal Blood. The researchers found the condition surprisingly common in older patients with low blood counts.
