Telomere dysfunction has been proposed as a key event that causes cancer progression. According to this model, progressive telomere shortening results in telomere dysfunction and end-to-end chromosomal fusions. The resulting … Continue Reading Researchers identify telomere-based mechanism which turns mutant cells into aggressive cancers.
An important mystery has been why some cells in the body already have mutations seen in cancer, yet do not fully behave like the cancer. Now, researchers led by the … Continue Reading In a world’s first, researchers image the origins of cancer from the first affected cell.
A common, yet previously undistinguished protein, which is elevated in many late-stage cancers, may play a strategic role in tumour growth through a non-conventional pathway, researchers at the Indiana University … Continue Reading Researchers identify previous unknown pathway for p53 cancer cell activation.
Case Western Reserve researchers have identified a two-pronged therapeutic approach that shows great potential for weakening and then defeating cancer cells. The team’s complex mix of genetic and biochemical experiments … Continue Reading Cancer treatment identified in gene repair pathway.
