Jump-starting T Cells In Skin Cancer

...e. Understanding the characteristics of the T cell populations that are expanded after vaccination may help in the development of more effective anti-tumor vaccines. Tumor-specific T cells can be detected in the blood and the tumors of many melanoma patients, and yet these cells are unable to kill the tumor. Wh...

...ymphoma (CTCL) cells to clonally expand into large populations of malignant lymphocytes. CTCL is the most common adult malignancy of T lymphocytes, the white blood cells of the immune system. Finding CTCL triggering factors has been a major goal of Richard L. Edelson, M.D., Director of the Yale Cancer Center, a...

U-M scientists find genes that control growth of common skin cancer

...CC tumor growth, suggesting that the residual cell populations mayrepresent BCC tumor stem cells, but Dlugosz cautions that there is asyet no definitive evidence that tumor stem cells exist in BCC. Inadditional studies, the researchers found that regressing BCC cellscould be reprogrammed to differentiate into va...

Genetically modified natural killer immune cells attack, kill leukemia cells

...ncountered leukemic cells. In order to grow large populations of NK cells, the team started with samples of blood containing a variety of different immune system cells. They placed this sample into a dish containing a type of human leukemia cell called K562. Campana's team genetically modified the K562 cells so...

Same mutation aided evolution in many fish species, Stanford study finds

...ause ocean fish quickly evolved into such distinct populations when they colonized new freshwater lakes and streams, they are an ideal model for understanding how animals adapt to their unique environments. The recent work carries a few surprises. Kingsley said that the gene in question, called Eda, is an old f...

Researchers trace evolution to relatively simple genetic changes

Marine fish colonized new freshwater lakes and streams when the last ice age ended 10,000 to 15,000 years ago. Then they evolved along separate paths, each adapting to the unique environments created by ...

Research Gives Hope For Liver Damage

...A have, for the first time, identifiedtwo separate populations of immune cells macrophages in the liver. Onegroup of macrophages causes scarring to the liver, but the next wave ofimmune cells, produced only a few days later, change function to breakdown and reabsorb the scarring. These findings, published in the...

UCSD discovery may help extend life of natural pesticide

"If changes are detected, switching to another pesticide, perhaps even another variety of Bt that works through a differ...

Boosting HIV screening can increase survival and is cost effective

...s. Frequent HIV screening in moderate-to-high-risk populations could produce life expectancy gains at costs that compare favorably to many commonly employed screening interventions in other chronic conditions, including breast cancer, colorectal cancer, diabetes and hypertension. Paltiel said that even in settin...

A new study examines how shared pathogens affect host populations

...ea that sharing pathogens necessarily affects host populations negatively. They show that if there is frequency-dependent transmission, a host can be rescued from pathogen-mediated extinction by the presence of a second host with which it shares a pathogen. Sharing a pathogen among one or more alternative speci...

Stephenson and van Mantgem pointed out that increased dominance by younger trees could also lead to changes in the amount of carbon stored in forests, though the direction and magnitude of such...
