Combined Gene Transduction and Light Therapy Targets Gastric Cancer

Researchers from the Okayama University in Japan report photoimmunotherapy to be effective against elusive gastric cancer cells following transduction with the gene that expresses the extracellular domain protein of HER2. The results are published in the February 2016 edition of the journal Small Molecule Therapeutics in February 2016. 

“Gastric cancer is one of the most common malignancies worldwide, making it the third leading cause of cancer-related death,” explain…

Study shows ‘Nano-sensing’ drives Melanoma cells’ Invasion

A new study supported by funding from the National Institutes of Health and the Yale Cancer Center sheds light on how melanoma cells change from benign to malignant, and how the complex interaction between the cells and their surrounding environment affects outcomes of the cancer.

The transition from the radial growth patterns of benign melanoma cells to the vertical patterns of malignant cells has long been a mystery to researchers. But a study from the lab of Andre Levchenko, the…

Researchers are Studying Cardiac Drugs that Also Attack Cancer

Several drugs now being used to treat heart failure and atrial arrhythmia also show promise as DNA disruptors in cancer cells and could be readily repurposed as anticancer agents, according to a new study by Yale researchers which was supported by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, and the Yale Center for Molecular Discovery.

Cardiac glycosides, which are bioactive natural products found in certain plants and insects, aid in cardiac…

Industry Visionaries Meet to Explore New Combination Cancer Drug Development Paradigm

Senior leaders from more than a dozen biopharmaceutical companies came together today with world-class academic clinicians from four leading cancer centers, representatives from oncology non-profits, the FDA, and other key stakeholder organizations to advance the most promising avenues for curing cancer: accelerating the development of investigational drug combination therapies of two or more investigational treatments which may hold great promise for cancer patients. 

The endeavor,…
