This Week in Animal Research: 19th-25th June

Research in rats suggests that breast cancer patients should avoid even low levels of light in the bedroom.

Cold virus fights cancer selectively

Scientists have managed to modify the cold virus so that it only targets and damages cancerous cells.

40,000 trout undercut costs, increase accuracy

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.

Stopping cancer spreading

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.

Nanobees deliver deadly sting

A group of scientists has harnessed the power of bee venom and used it to kill tumour cells in mice.

New target for stopping colon cancer

A team of scientists studying mice have found a target that could lead to an effective way to kill colon cancer cells.

Diesel fumes grow new blood vessels?

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.

Stem cell link to prostate cancer

A new study identifies a stem cell that may cause some types of prostate cancer, at least in mice.

'Master gene' for immune cells identified

Researchers have identified the master gene that causes blood stem cells to turn into natural killer (NK) immune cells.

Lung tumour treatment shows promise

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.

Biomatrix may allow tumour testing without mice

Mice are used widely in the study of cancer and to test the clinical efficiency and safety of anti-cancer therapies.

Cancer vaccine implant success in mice

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.

Walnuts to fight prostate cancer

Eating walnuts as part of a balanced diet may reduce the size and growth of prostate tumours, a study on mice has shown.

Broccoli chemical kills cancer cells

A chemical in broccoli can kill breast cancer cells and halt tumour growth, accroding to new research on mice.
