Scientists have published one of the most detailed maps ever made of structural variations in a cancer cell’s genome.
Oncology is the most advanced area in genomics right now. The field is setting the standard for other indications to follow and improve upon.
Scientists have developed a technique that shows individual cancer cells in a tumour in real-time, revealing which cells that interact with a drug and which cells the drug fails to reach.
Scientists are taking advantage of the “self-homing” abilities of cancer cells and are creating armies of cancer-killing cells using CRISPR gene-editing.
The enzyme TLK2 displays lower levels of activity in intellectual disability, and overactivity in cases of breast cancer, say researchers.
People living in England will be the first in the world to have access to DNA tests as routine care starting this fall, putting the NHS at the forefront of healthcare, as it takes a huge step towards precision medicine.
For many women diagnosed with breast cancer, genetic testing can offer important information that might guide treatment choices. A new study finds that surgeons are a key influence.
New research links higher body fat with lower breast cancer risk before menopause.
“Artificial ovaries” are offering an alternative, safer, option for women that are infertile following chemotherapy treatment as for the first time ever, scientists have successfully isolated viable, early stage follicles in ovarian tissue scaffold in mice.
Researchers have discovered that men and women have different genetic risk factors for developing glioma.
Studies of breast cancer do not take sufficient account of patients’ race, ethnicity, economic status, education level, health insurance coverage, and other social factors, a group of scientists argue.
Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute is pushing for the use of genetic testing to transform treatment of breast cancer with the Personalised Breast Cancer Programme.
Researchers have created nanoparticles that can zap tumours with significant amounts of heat under a low magnetic field.
There’s no therapy developed yet, that can stop cancer cells from moving throughout the body. New research shows that it may be possible to do so, in freezing cancer cells and killing them where they stand.
A mechanism enabling cells to bind and isolate toxic substances could have significant implications for how tumours develop resistance to certain types of chemotherapy.
