Photo: Shape-shifting material [14/08/2014] Researchers report that they have developed a "self-fitting" material that expands with warm salt water to precisely fill bone defects, and also acts as a scaffold for new bone growth.'Shape-shifting' material could help reconstruct faces - Read more

Malaria: chloroquine inhibits tumor growth and metastases

Photo: Pills and a clinical thermometer [12/08/2014] The anti-cancer effect of the antimalarial agent chloroquine when combined with conventional chemotherapy has been well documented in experimental animal models. To date, it was assumed that chloroquine increases the sensitivity of cancer cells to chemotherapy by means of a direct effect on the cancer cells.Malaria: chloroquine inhibits tumor growth and metastases - Read more

Graphic: Petri dish with a tube of blood [05/08/2014] Despite improved therapy, only one out of every two adult patients survive acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). A team of Frankfurt-based researchers discovered that these cells do have a weakness: The enzyme 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) plays a significant role in the survival of leukaemic AML stem cells.

Blocking cells' movement to stop the spread of cancer

( Source: MEDICA.de )

Graphic: cell [10/07/2014] Insights into how cells move through the body could lead to innovative techniques to stop cancer cells from spreading and causing secondary tumors, according to new UCL research. Scientists discovered that cells can change into an invasive, liquid-like state to readily navigate the narrow channels in our body.
