Existing cancer therapies are geared toward killing tumour cells, but Johns Hopkins researchers propose a different strategy, subtly hardening cancer cells to prevent them from invading new areas of the … Continue Reading New strategy sees therapy ‘stiffening’ cancer cells and limiting mobility.
By blocking a widespread enzyme, Centenary Institute amd Sydney Medical School researchers have shown they can slow down the movement of cells and potentially stop tumours from spreading and growing. … Continue Reading Researchers identify and observe enzyme slowing down living cancer cells.
For decades, researchers have used petri dishes to study cell movement. These classic tissue culture tools, however, only permit two-dimensional movement, very different from the three-dimensional movements that cells make … Continue Reading Penn-NIH team discover new type of cell movement.
