Cannibal cells may limit cancer growth
New research led by scientists at the Babraham Institute, Cambridge reveals a link between cell cannibalism and cancer biology. Cell cannibalism occurs when one cell surrounds, kills and digests another. This latest research reveals that cannibalism can be triggered by cell division; when one cell divides to form two. Since uncontrolled cell division is a key hallmark of cancer, this suggests that cannibalism may have a role to play in resisting cancer. (2017-07-11)

Onalespib could be an effective treatment for glioblastoma, preclinical studies show
This study showed that the targeted drug onalespib reduced the expression of cell-survival proteins such as AKT and endothelial growth factor receptor in glioma cell lines and glioma stem cells from patient tumors. This, in turn, reduced the survival, proliferation, invasion and migration of the cells. In animal models of glioblastoma the agent crossed the blood-brain barrier and showed effectiveness as a single agent and greater effectiveness in combination with temozolomide. (2017-11-02)

Modular gene enhancer promotes leukemia and regulates effectiveness of chemotherapy
Every day, billions of new blood cells are generated in the bone marrow. The gene Myc is known to play an important role in this process, and is also known to play a role in cancer. Scientists from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the HI-STEM have now found that just how big a role Myc plays is determined by a distant section of DNA that contains a cluster of gene enhancers. (2018-01-17)

A mere drop of blood makes skin cells line up
A team of researchers from Oslo University Hospital performed experiments on blood-deprived cells that were subsequently exposed to blood serum.

New blood test may transform the way cancer is monitored and treated
Stanford University scientists have described a new type of test that can detect genetic mutations in minute amounts of DNA released from cancer cells into the blood. The test, which is called single color digital PCR, requires only a fraction of a tube of blood and can detect as few as three mutation-bearing molecules in a single reaction. According to the report, this highly sensitive test has the potential to be personalized to recognize mutations unique to any individual cancer. (2017-08-14)
