Oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
The involvement of clathrin in the development of liver cancer has been described for the first time, which could lead to more targeted therapy.
A new study has shown the specific cellular mechanisms that limit the ability of CD8 T cells to infiltrate the tumour microenvironment, which could guide new immunotherapeutic strategies in cancer.
Regulator genes and proteins have been identified on circulating tumour cells in mice which allow them to target other organs in the body.
Peptide-based nanoparticles have been designed which can suppress pancreatic cancer growth without the toxic side effects.
A new mechanism by which cancer cells become resistant to chemotherapy has been found which could lead to a new target for drugs.
A study has demonstrated that the stiffness of cells indicates whether a tumour will spread and inducing this state could help to avoid metastasis.
A study has found a selective inhibitor for an enzyme that allows cancer cells to mutate and become resistant to treatments.
Cells containing Meflin play a role in restraining the progression of pancreatic cancer and could lead to new therapies against the disease.
A new platform has the potential to better understand what dictates the invasive behaviour of brain tumours.
Researchers have discovered that a specific subset of gamma delta T cells can be found in higher numbers of breast cancer survivor tissue, indicating its role in fighting the condition.
