Crowdsourced AI learns to target lung tumors for radiation

( Reuters Health) – In lots of parts of the world there are insufficient radiation oncologists to develop and provide radiation treatments for lung cancer clients, however that space might one day be filled with the assistance of expert system, scientists recommend in a brand-new research study. In an unique technique to the issue, the … Read more

Single-cell sequencing reveals landscape of immune cell subtypes in lung cancer tumors: Map of myeloid immune cell subpopulations points to new targets for immunotherapy

The recent emergence of immunotherapy has marked a sea change in research and care for many forms of cancer, bringing new hope to patients and families around the world. For those who respond to treatment, the results can be dramatic. Activation of a patient’s immune system against cancer can kill or shrink tumors and, in … Read more

Many women worry about breast cancer, but most aren’t at high risk for these tumors due to factors like a family history of … Read more

Cancer exports molecular ‘saboteurs’ to remotely disarm immune system: Discovery may help explain immunotherapy resistance, hints at new therapies

Immunotherapy drugs known as checkpoint inhibitors have revolutionized cancer treatment: many patients with malignancies that until recently would have been considered untreatable are experiencing long-term remissions. But the majority of patients don’t respond to these drugs, and they work far better in some cancers than others, for reasons that have befuddled scientists. Now, UC San … Read more

At the same time, rates of obesity and diseases like type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure have increased. Now, a new study … Read more

Platelet ‘decoys’ outsmart both clots and cancer

Platelet ‘decoys’ outsmart both clots and cancer Platelet decoys (pink), unlike normal platelets, are not activated by collagen fibers (gray), making them an attractive option for antithrombotic and cancer treatment. Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard University Deactivated, the cells offer a potential drug-free, reversible antiplatelet therapy Heart disease, stroke, sepsis, and cancer collectively cause the … Read more
