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.
A team of scientists studying mice have found a target that could lead to an effective way to kill colon cancer cells. Scientists developed treatments for many types of cancer in… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/new-target-for-stopping-colon-cancer/

Nanobees deliver deadly sting

A group of scientists has harnessed the power of bee venom and used it to kill tumour cells in mice.
A group of scientists has harnessed the power of bee venom and used it to kill tumour cells in mice. By arming small particles dubbed nanobees with the bee venom melittin,… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/nanobees-deliver-deadly-sting/

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.

Cold virus fights cancer selectively

Scientists have managed to modify the cold virus so that it only targets and damages cancerous cells.
Scientists have managed to modify the cold virus so that it only targets and damages cancerous cells. Cancer cells suppress the body’s immune system, allowing viruses to enter.… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/cold-virus-fights-cancer-selectively/

Scientists link tumours to depression

Studies using rats have linked chemicals released by tumours with depression.
Studies using rats have linked chemicals released by tumours with depression. Cancer patients often become depressed once diagnosed. This is often put down to the psychological… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/scientists-link-tumours-to-depression/

Cancer cells baited into suicide

Scientists have developed a way to prompt cancerous cells to kill themselves in mice. Traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy work by damaging cancer… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/cancer-cells-baited-into-suicide/

Implants and the immune system fight cancer

Small plastic disks impregnated with chemicals specific to fighting tumour cells and implanted under the skin can reprogramme the immune system to attack tumours in mice. The… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/implants-and-the-immune-system-fight-cancer/
