Research in rats suggests that breast cancer patients should avoid even low levels of light in the bedroom.
Studies using rats have linked chemicals released by tumours with depression.
Scientists have managed to modify the cold virus so that it only targets and damages cancerous cells.
The largest animal study ever on the cancer-causing risk (carcinogenicity) of chemicals could have profound implications for the species used in such testing, the numbers of animals used, and the accuracy of current tests.
Working with 'substitute' breast cancer stem cells and mice, scientists have discovered a chemical which can kill the cells that cause tumours to spread and return, even after seemingly successful treatment.
A group of scientists has harnessed the power of bee venom and used it to kill tumour cells in mice.
A team of scientists studying mice have found a target that could lead to an effective way to kill colon cancer cells.
New findings indicate that the link between diesel exhaust fumes and cancer lies in the ability of particles within the exhaust fumes to cause the growth of new blood vessels, which can aid tumour development.
A new study identifies a stem cell that may cause some types of prostate cancer, at least in mice.
Researchers have identified the master gene that causes blood stem cells to turn into natural killer (NK) immune cells.
Antivivisectionists have spoken out against giving dogs with cancer a new cancer drug.
Researchers have discovered a new medicine which is able to stop lung tumours from growing in mice, even eliminating them altogether in half of all cases.
Mice are used widely in the study of cancer and to test the clinical efficiency and safety of anti-cancer therapies.
A cancer ‘vaccine' which can be implanted under the skin and instructs the body to attack tumour cells has proved successful in experiments with mice.
Loneliness and stress are more likely to cause breast cancer, a study using rats suggests.
Mice lacking the p21 gene can be healed scar free, a study has shown.
Eating walnuts as part of a balanced diet may reduce the size and growth of prostate tumours, a study on mice has shown.
A chemical in broccoli can kill breast cancer cells and halt tumour growth, accroding to new research on mice.
