Researchers have condensed methods for identifying cancer gene mutations in cells into a single process, to aid understanding of tumours and improve treatment outcomes.
Flow cytometry has played a key role in drug development, largely due to its ability to measure up to twenty parameters on single cells or particles suspended in a fluid stream. Typically, cells are labelled with fluorescent markers and passed through a series of lasers, after which the resultant fluorescent…
Scientists have successfully overcome the persistent cell rejection that has hitherto plagued attempts to introduce neural stem cells to replace damaged tissue in pigs.
An experimental drug demonstrated selective cancer-killing ability against breast, colon, leukaemia, brain and melanoma cancer cells with no apparent effects on normal cells...
