This new tiny biomedical device makes diagnosing cancer types easier A team of scientists has made valves which can operate on tiny channels of fluid the width of 3 human hairs. It can deliver colored stains to tissue samples accurately, so that scientists can view cancer cells under the microscope more easily.

Nationwide study reveals the deadly impact of the coronavirus on cancer patients In a study of 2,000 cancer patients, hydroxychloroquine showed no clinical benefit. Remdesivir was associated with a lower mortality risk but only certain groups of patients had access to it. Cancer patients also showed a higher risk of dying within 30 days of receiving a coronavirus diagnosis.

Brain Cancer Treatment Finishes Phase 3 of Clinical Trials Immunotherapy using the patient's own dendritic cells looks promising as a treatment for this highly fatal form of cancer.

For most types of cancer, survival rates have steadily been improving since the 1970s as medical advancements have been made in both cancer diagnosis as well as in treatment. Some of the largest improvements seen have been in the most READ MORE

Popular Over the Counter Sleep Aid May Prevent Cancer Treatment Side Effects A study in rats shows the potential for melatonin, an over-the-counter hormone supplement, to protect the intestines of cancer patients undergoing radiation treatment

An over-the-counter hormone supplement called melatonin, typically made from animal pineal glands or synthesized in a laboratory, was tested on rats in the present study to see if it would be able to protect the intestines of rats treated with radiation.

Viruses May Help Us In The Fight Against Cancer Viruses have long been our enemies, but we may have found a way to join forces against cancer cells.

Cancer is one of the greatest challenges of our time. A common misconception about cancer is that it is one disease. There are hundreds of unique types of cancers that all require different treatment strategies. This diversity in cancer types READ MORE
