By identifying the role of a specific protein in the development of obesity-related liver diseases, UNIGE researchers pave the way for better diagnosis, and potentially better treatment.
A protein naturally produced in the body has been found to suppress breast cancer metastasis in animal models of human tumors. Researchers led by Baylor College of Medicine also found that high levels of this protein, AKAP8, predicts a better survival for breast cancer patients.
Research conducted on human pancreatic tumors transplanted in mice reveals promising results, TAU researchers say
Tiny devices made of DNA could detect cancer with fewer false alarms
Viruses get a bad rap as potential cancer-causers, but at least one class of viruses that commonly live on human skin – so-called “low-risk” human papillomaviruses -- appear to play an unwitting role in protecting us against skin cancer according to a new study published in Nature.
