Researchers identify telomere-based mechanism which turns mutant cells into aggressive cancers.

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.

In a world’s first, researchers image the origins of cancer from the first affected cell.

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.
