A new study reports cancer patients who frequently eat peanuts may be at increased risk of their cancer spreading. Researchers found Peanut agglutinin (PNA), a carbohydrate-binding protein that enters blood circulation after a peanut is eaten, interacts with endothelial cells to produce cytokines. Some of the cytokines are recognized promoters of cancer metastasis.
Three subgroups of medulloblastoma brain cancer can be identified non-invasively using MRS neuroimaging technology.
Researchers report incorrect assumptions about what may cause cancer is rife in the general population. Despite lacking solid scientific evidence, 34% of people believe GMOs, and 15% of people believe drinking from plastic bottles can cause cancer.
An experimental nanotechnology drug crosses the blood-brain barrier and targets brain tumor cells, a new study suggests. The drug also blocks the growth of tumor blood vessels.
Researchers report our gender can determine longevity and response to treatment for glioblastoma brain cancer. The study reports male survival is determined by genes that control cell division, where as female survival is often determine by genes that regulate the ability of cancer cells to migrate to different brain areas.
Researchers reveal the important role of microRNAs in regulating neuroblastoma brain cancer development.
A new zebrafish model holds the potential for future studies of glioblastoma, an aggressive and lethal brain cancer.
Researchers report AP2gamma, a protein associated with the growth of breast cancer tumors, plays a vital role in the regulation of hippocampal neurogenesis.
Researchers discover glioblastoma brain tumor cells disrupt the blood brain barrier. The findings offer potential new avenues to treat brain cancer.
The Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccine, commonly used to innoculate against tuberculosis and as a bladder cancer treatment, also appears to reduce the development of Alzheimer's disease.
According to a new study, a computer program was almost twice as accurate as neuroradiologists in determining whether abnormal brain tissue seen on an MRI scan was due to radiation or brain cancer.
A new study reports adults who survived posterior fossa brain tumors as children have lower working memory performance than healthy adults.
