Buckyballs boost antibody's chemotherapy payload

...ong, covalent bonds -- tend to block the targeting centers on the antibody's surface. If an antibody is modified with too many covalent bonds, the chemical changes will destroy its ability to recognize the cancer it was intended to attack. Wilson said the team from Rice and M. D.

First-ever genomic test predicts which lung cancer patients need chemotherapy to live

..., will enroll more than 1,000 patients at multiple centers in the United States and Canada. "If we can use the test to increase patient survival by even 5 percent, we would save 10,000 lives a year," Harpole said.
