Brightening prospects of using fluorescent nanotubes in medical applications

...suing research that uses gold nanoclusters to burn away cancer cells. He has developed a selective method for attaching the gold clusters to the surface of tumors and then exposing them to wavelengths of light that cause them to grow hot enough to destroy nearby cells. The approach has one drawback: He do...

Migration alert -- How tumor cells home in on the lymphatic system

... fluid, there will always be slow fluid flow going away from the tumor into the lymphatic vessel. This slow flow biases the concentration distribution of this molecule towards the lymphatic, and the tumor cell follows it, like the proverbial carrot on a stick. Near the vessel, concentrations of the signal...

The findings are important because disruption of the precise movement of these repair proteins can cause mutations, cell d...

Study shows continued success for new HPV vaccine against virus responsible for cervical cancer

... most people, HPV causes no complications and goes away on its own. However, in some cases, if left untreated, certain high-risk types of HPV can lead to cervical cancer. "The goal of the study was to see if we could prevent precancerous cases and we were 98 percent effective. Everyone who gets cance...
