  • Successful test of 'Trojan Horse' cancer drug offers hope for an end to chemotherapy: Molecule poses as 'ideal prey' for 'greedy' malignant cells that eat it 'without realising it's toxic'

    05/31/2021 11:19:44 AM PDT · by algore · 20 replies
    Scientists at the University of Edinburgh combined the tiny cancer-killing molecule called SeNBD with a chemical food to trick the harmful cells into ingesting it. Cancerous cells are 'greedy' and need to consume high amounts of food for energy and they typically ingest more than healthy cells, the experts said. By coupling SeNBD with a chemical food compound it becomes the 'ideal prey for harmful cells' which ingest it 'without being alerted to its toxic nature'.Scientists hope the treatment will boost survival rates among cancer patients and spare many from damaging chemotherapy. So far, it has only been used on...

    BBC ^ | 01/20/2020 | By James Gallagher Health and science correspondent
    A newly-discovered part of our immune system could be harnessed to treat all cancers, say scientists. The Cardiff University team discovered a method of killing prostate, breast, lung and other cancers in lab tests. The findings, published in Nature Immunology, have not been tested in patients, but the researchers say they have "enormous potential". Experts said that although the work was still at an early stage, it was very exciting. What have they found? Our immune system is our body's natural defence against infection, but it also attacks cancerous cells. The scientists were looking for "unconventional" and previously undiscovered ways...

    Scientists have discovered a new cell in the immune system that can kill many types of cancer, which they hope could one day be used to create a "one size fits all" treatment for the disease.In mice experiments and in lab dishes, the team showed that a new type of what are known as T-cells could detect a range of cancerous cells, while differentiating them from healthy cells.A T-cell is a type of white blood cell in the immune system, which both helps to fight off infections as well as cancers. These new T-cells and their special receptors can home...

    New treatment for killing cancer cells may have accidentally been discovered by a group of British scientists, according to reports. Cardiff University’s research team found a T-Cell that attaches itself onto human cancers, and kills them while ignoring healthy cells. Although in its early stages of development, the treatment successfully destroys bone, lung, breast, colon, prostate, and other cancers, The Telegraph reported. (RELATED: Alex Trebek Announces He Was Diagnosed With Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer) Originally, researchers were only looking for immune cells that were capable of fighting bacteria, before they discovered the T-Cell virus. Their findings were made available on...

Safer and less invasive treatment options could soon be on the table, however, including a novel MRI-guided ultrasound technique that eliminated significant cancers in 80 percent of subjects in a year-long study. The new technique is called MRI-guided transurethral ultrasound ablation (TULSA) and has been under development for...

    An international team of scientists is getting closer to perfecting molecule-sized motors that drill through the surface of cancer cells, killing them in an instant. Researchers at Rice University, Durham (U.K.) University and North Carolina State University reported their success at activating the motors with precise two-photon excitation via near-infrared light. Unlike the ultraviolet light they first used to drive the motors, the new technique does not damage adjacent, healthy cells. The research led by chemists James Tour of Rice, Robert Pal of Durham and Gufeng Wang of North Carolina may be best applied to skin, oral and gastrointestinal cancer...

    The Sun ^ | 19th November 2018, 12:15 am | Andrea Downey, Digital Health Reporter
    A GENETICALLY modified virus that kills cancer cells and destroys their hiding places has been developed by British scientists. It targets both cancer cells and healthy cells that are tricked into protecting the cancer from the immune system. Fibroblasts, the most common type of cell in connective tissues, are vital in the body's healing process, but they can get hijacked by cancer-associated fibroblasts or CAFs. These then help tumours grow, spread and evade therapy. The new treatment, a form of immunotherapy developed by Oxford University scientists, attacks carcinomas - the most ­common type of cancer. Currently, any therapy that kills...

Researchers from the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO), have produced the first mouse model that faithfully reproduces the steps of human HCC development, from the appearance of the first lesions in the liver to the development of metastasis. The results, published in the prestigious journal Cancer Cell, indicate that diets rich in nicotinamide riboside, a derivative of vitamin...
