Tests on mice showed that both Glivec and Sutent depleted pericytes by 70 percent while metastasis rates tripled

0 37

A new study suggests that cancer drugs that shrink tumors by cutting off their blood supply may end up helping them to spread. Drugs such as Glivec and Sutent reduce the size of tumors but could also make them more aggressive and mobile, it is claimed. A little-studied group of cells called pericytes that provide structural support to blood vessels act as “gatekeepers” to pen in cancer, scientist...

British researchers have made a device that can “smell” bladder cancer in urine samples. The device uses a sensor to detect gaseous chemicals that are given off if cancer cells are present. Early trials show the tests gives accurate results more than nine times in 10, its inventors told PLoS One journal. However, experts say more studies are needed to perfect the test before it can be...

A new way of screening for ovarian cancer is showing potential

0 33

According to researchers in the US, a new way of screening for ovarian cancer is showing “potential”. Tumors in the ovaries are hard to detect in the earliest stages meaning it can be too late to treat them effectively by the time they are found. A trial of 4,051 women, reported in the journal Cancer, showed the method could identify those needing treatment. But a huge study taking pl...
