London, Sept 26 - Scientists claim that high levels of calcium in blood, known as hypercalcaemia, can be used by GPs as an early sign of certain types of cancer, and can be diagnosed using a simple bold test.
Washington, Sept 22 : Researchers from Stanford has created an "evolved" protein therapy that might stop cancer from spreading in body.
According to the team of Stanford researchers the new protein therapy disrupts the process that causes cancer cells to break away from original tumor sites, travel through the blood stream and start aggressive new growths elsewhere in the body.
London, Sept 2 - A new survey has revealed that half of the young women, aged 26-35, do not know how to label a vagina on a medical diagram, while 65 percent have a problem using the words vagina or vulva.
Washington, Aug 15 - A new research has suggested that immune cells, known as natural killer cells could help in hunting down and kill cancers that have spread in the body.
The study showed that a protein called MCL-1 was vital for survival of natural killer cells.
Washington, Aug 08 - A new 'largest-of-its-kind' genomic study has offered a new cancer classification system, which could help provide different and better treatment to the patients.
Washington, June 5 - Researchers have said that weight loss surgery could also help reduce the risk of cancer to rates almost similar to those of people of normal weight.
New York, May 26 : The migration of cancer cells from the primary tumour to nearby tissues and organs is regulated by a signalling pathway in a finely orchestrated manner, researchers have discovered.
Most complications in cancer treatment arise from the spread of cancer to distant tissues and organs, rather than from the primary tumour itself.
Washington, Apr 19 - A new study has found that a common genetic variant that affects one in three people, appears to significantly increase the risk of colorectal cancer from the consumption of processed meat. The study of over 18,000 people from the US, Canada, Australia and Europe represents the first large-scale genome-wide analysis of genetic variants and dietary patterns that may help explain more of the risk factors for colorectal cancer.
Washington, Mar 23 - Scientists have revealed that one compound from "third-hand smoke," which forms when second-hand smoke reacts with indoor air, damages DNA and sticks to it in a way that could potentially cause cancer.
London, Feb 27 - Do you see any connection between gold and caffeine? If combined, these two can become a potential tool in fighting cancer, a study showed.
Researchers put the two together into certain configurations to see whether the new caffeine-based gold compounds could selectively stop cancer cells from growing without hurting other cells.
