Phase 1 trials begin of a cancer vaccine

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard University have launched a human trial to test a potential vaccine against melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer. The cross-disciplinary team of scientists, engineers and clinicians includes researchers from the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University. The researchers are now recruiting patients for the Phase I study, which is expected…

Turmeric spice when combined with anti-nausea drug kills cancer cells

One of the keys to tumor suppression could possibly lie in the Indian spice turmeric. Often used in curry dishes, it is commonly known as “Indian solid gold” for its proven health benefits. Various scientific studies have shown that the yellow compound in turmeric, curcumin, contains potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These can inhibit tumor cell growth and suppress enzymes…

Human trials having 75% success rating for curing leukemia

Leukemia had invaded his bone marrow and spread like a stain through his lymph nodes; the traditional options, including chemo and radiation, had failed. Walt needed something radically different if he was going to live. And the treatment he’d been given a few days ago was certainly that. Over the past several years, a couple of hundred mice had received…

A new technique for detecting cancer by imaging the consumption of sugar with magnetic resonance imaging, could provide a safer and simpler alternative to standard radioactive techniques and enable radiologists to image tumours in greater detail.

A new technique for detecting cancer by imaging the consumption of sugar with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been unveiled by UCL scientists.he researchers found that sensitising an MRI scanner to glucose uptake caused tumours to appear as bright images on MRI scans of mice. http://www.alphagalileo.org/ViewItem.aspx?ItemId=132714&CultureCode=en Related articles Sugar makes cancer light-up in MRI scanners…
