In many cancer types, cancer cells try to survive by escaping attack from the immune system. These cancer cells hijack mechanisms called immune checkpoints to trick the immune system into thinking they are healthy cells. Recent advances in cancer treatment have focused on developing immune c

A new study from the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center has found that a dietary change could be a key to enhancing colon cancer treatment.
Variable voltages have been discovered in the membranes of breast cancer cells, revealing information about how the cells grow and spread.

A Ludwig Cancer Research study has revealed a single protein expressed at high levels by cancer cells across a broad range of malignancies that erects a multifaceted barrier to anti-cancer immune responses in mouse models of cancer and so shields tumours from immune detection and destruction

Cancer cells require proteins that bind copper ions in order to develop and spread throughout the human body. Recent studies on the interactions between proteins and how they bind to metals in cancer-related proteins have revealed possible new therapeutic targets.
A recent study has found that membrane voltage being higher than in healthy cells it also fluctuates over time - with breast cancer cells behaving much like neurons.
