Gene's function may give new target for cancer drugs

(Phys.org)—Purdue University scientists have determined that a gene long known to be involved in cancer cell formation and chemotherapy resistance is key to proper RNA creation, an understanding that could one day lead ...

SMU biochemists super-compute a cancer drug

When chemotherapy fails to halt the spread of cancer, it is typically because new super cells develop resistance to the chemotherapy. Instead of dying off, the cells reject the medicine, are able to pump it out and continue ...

Droplet array sheds light on drug-resistant cancer stem cells

Researchers at the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) have developed a miniaturized biochip for investigating the effect of drugs on cancer stem cells (CSCs). Published recently in Nano Today, this new technology ...
