NUS study: Nanoparticles may promote cancer metastasis

National University of Singapore

Researchers from the National University of Singapore have found that cancer nanomedicine, which are designed to kill cancer cells, may accelerate metastasis. Using breast cancer as a model, they discovered that common nanoparticles made from gold, titanium dioxide, silver and silicon dioxide – found in processed food, consumer products, and also used in nanomedicines – widen the gap between blood vessel cells, making it easier for other cells, such as cancer cells, to go in and out of “leaky” blood vessels.

Scientists shed light on processes behind age-related decline in brain structures

Cardiff University

Ageing can cause damage to support cells in the white matter, which in turn may lead to damage in the grey matter of the hippocampus, finds a new study by Cardiff University.

Cell lines deserve unique considerations when creating research protections, authors say

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

New rules recently went into effect, seeking to protect patients who donate tissue samples for research in the age of genetic sequencing. But this rule could have unintended consequences for certain critical types of biospecimens.

Opposite Effect: Protein Widely Known to Fight Tumors Also Boosts Cancer Growth

University of California San Diego

UC San Diego researchers studying p53, the heralded cancer-fighting “guardian of the genome,” have found that the human protein also plays a role in promoting tumors, in addition to suppressing them.

High-dose radiation therapy improves long-term survival in patients with stage-IV cancers, trial finds

American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO)

The first report from a phase II, multi-center clinical trial indicates that a newer, more aggressive form of radiation therapy — stereotactic radiation — can extend long-term survival for some patients with stage-IV cancers while maintaining their quality of life. The study is published in the January issue of International Journal of Radiation Oncology • Biology • Physics (Red Journal), the flagship scientific journal of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).

Researchers Develop New Approach for Vanquishing Superbugs

Case Western Reserve University

A scientific team from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and Cleveland Clinic has developed a new way to identify second-line antibiotics that may be effective in killing germs already resistant to a first-line antibiotic – potentially helping overcome antibiotic resistance. This new research provides an approach clinicians could consult when deciding which antibiotic treatment courses will be most effective for patients.
