In a new study, a team of US scientists have used gene editing to change the genetic code of white blood cells and transform them into more efficient tumor fighting cells. How did they do it?
Researchers are trying to boost the power of our immune system by genetically altering our white blood cells and transforming them into super-soldiers to fight cancer.
Oxygen is vital for life, so much so that cells can sense when there isn't enough and adapt almost instantly. So how do they do it? The winners of the 2019 Nobel Prize for Physiology figured it out.
Pancreatic cancer currently has one of the least optimistic prognosis, with just 5% of patients surviving five years after diagnosis. A recent study opens a door to hope.
When you think of viruses, you might think of the horrible illnesses they cause, like flu or Ebola. But now researchers are learning how to use the unique traits of viruses to treat disease.
Sea turtles contend with a contagious disease that causes debilitating tumors. Genetic analysis is helping researchers figure out precision medicine-based treatments for the turtles.
Research has resulted in advances in treating breast cancer in recent decades, but a wide gap exists in mortality rates between African-American women and white women. Here's a look into why.
Breast cancer awareness month may be over, but don't put away your pink. The disease is with us year-round. While researchers have found several ways to treat it, here are some things to know.
A diagnosis of glioblastoma did not keep John McCain from the Capitol to cast a crucial vote that could end Obamacare. His actions are a reminder that stats are one thing but human beings, another.
Not only are tumors are different from one another, but there can even be genetic differences within a single tumor.
But not in the way you think. Insurance isn't just about getting care when you are really sick. It's also about the care you get before that.
Growth states of cancer cells can now be visualised in real time, thanks to a new 3D model of a melanoma tumour developed…
A new test may predict the risk of the most common type of breast cancer spreading to other organs. The effectiveness of…
For the first time, 3D images have been used to track tumors as they spread, and the effects of particular drugs on cancer…
