Essential Science: Venom from bees destroys breast cancer cells

Venom from honeybees has been discovered to be effective at inactivating aggressive breast cancer cells, based on a series of laboratory studies. This paves the way for more in-depth assessment.

Nanoparticles used to differentiate healthy and cancerous cells

Medical technologists have fashioned synthetic nanoparticles to track down cancerous cells and to enable medics to differentiate cancerous cells from healthy cells. The technique should enable better targeted treatments.

Do cancer cells have special acoustic signals?

A new study suggests that cells have particular acoustic signals, and that the signal from cancerous cells differs from that of healthy cells. This could be the basis of a new cancer detection method.

Devising biological sensors to kill a range of cancer cells

Scientists are investigating the use of biological sensors to trigger the body's own immune cells to seek out, locate and destroy a range of different cancerous cells.

Essential Science: Researchers locate the origin of cancer

In groundbreaking research, scientists have pinpointed how developing cells switch to a specialized state and how the process might go wrong in cancer. Digital Journal investigates further.

Graphene found to neutralize cancer cells

A team of researchers at the University of Manchester, UK, has successfully targeted and neutralized cancer stem cells with the use of graphene. Scientists now believe this could be used to combat a wide range of cancers.

New drug combination causes cancer cells to 'self-destruct'

Liverpool - Researchers in the United Kingdom have discovered a drug combination that triggers a self-destruct mechanism in lung cancer cells.

Canadian scientists use 3-D modeling to identify cancers

Montreal - Scientists have shown that the three-dimensional shape of a cancer cell genome can reliably classify sub-types of human leukemia. This could lead to new diagnosis using 3-D imaging.

How cancer cells are 'put back together'

As some cancer cells are destroyed they can sometimes survive and piece themselves back together. The results offer insight on how cancer cells might be able to withstand chemotherapy.

How cancer cells spread in the body, scientists gain new insight

Scientists at the University College London say they have gained new insight into how cancer cells spread. The findings could revolutionize cancer treatment because most cancer deaths are caused by cells spreading to other parts of the body.

Soybeans may slowdown cancer

Scientists have demonstrated that peptides isolated from certain types of soybean can inhibit the growth of human colon, liver, and lung cancer cells.

Scientists discover DNA with quadruple helix in cancer cells

Cambridge - Scientists at Cambridge have discovered DNA with four helices located in human cancer cells. They say "quadruple helix" DNA could lead to new drugs to fight cancer because if unique to cancer cells it could be possible to develop drugs to target them.

Henrietta Lack's immortal life: one woman, many medical miracles

Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but in the medical community, she is commonly known as HeLa. At 30, Lacks was diagnosed was cervical cancer and died months later, in 1951. Her cells, however, became (and still are) one of the most important medical tools.

Scientists find curry ingredient that can kill cancer cells Special

Scientists believe they have found a curry compound that can kill cancer cells within 24 hours and could possibly be used as an anti-cancer treatment.

Filming Blood Vessel Cells Enables Researchers to Understand Cancer Cells' Migration

A new method of filming blood-vessel cells that move in accordance with targeted signals has been developed by researchers at Uppsala University in collaboration with researchers at the University of California.
