New way of looking at cancer immunotherapies

USCF researchers have developed a new way of looking at cancer immunotherapies, matching the immune environment around the tumour site. The research time analysed 364 individual tumours across 12 cancer types, identifying a range of immune cells such as macrophages, NK and B cells that could be potential targets for new immunotherapies. The discovery opens […]

2021 cancer research round-up

Scientists worldwide are doing incredible things to improve the diagnosis and treatment of all forms of cancer. New approaches such as targeted immunotherapies are opening up new avenues for cancer treatment that prove highly effective. At RGCC, we’ve pioneered the use of personalised genetic testing for cancer diagnosis, and others are listening with the NHS […]

CTCs accurate predictor of chemotherapy resistance

Liquid biopsy tests before and during chemotherapy can accurately detect whether patients with prostate cancer are resistant to treatment with anti-cancer drug docetaxel, scientists have found. By analysing a blood test for circulating tumour cells (CTCs), researchers were able to identify patients who are resistant to docetaxel treatments. Identifying patterns in the data can predict […]

New oral inhibitor improves pancreatic cancer treatment

Scientists have developed a new oral DPP inhibitor that, when used in combination with targeted immunotherapy, has shown promise at treating pancreatic cancer. In trials, the combination therapy proved to be successful at increasing the number of cancer-killing cells around a tumour, reducing its growth and, in some cases, eliminating cancer altogether. The authors believe […]

Chemotherapy drugs open door to cancer cells

Chemotherapy drugs could enhance the spread of cancer beyond a primary tumour site, scientists have established. In tests, researchers found that mice injected with cyclophosphamide, a popular chemotherapy drug, enabled breast cancer cells to squeeze through the blood vessel linings in the lungs and stick to cell walls. While chemotherapy remains an effective treatment for […]

How cancer cells evade the immune system

Mutations in cancer-suppressing genes that block cell growth may explain why some cancers evade the body’s immune system, scientists have established. A US team has identified 100 “mutated tumor suppressor genes” that affect the body’s ability to spot and destroy cancer cells in mice. While at an early stage, identifying genetic mutations could lead to […]

Molecular boost for cancer immunotherapies

Scientists have identified a new synthetic molecular code that could improve a patient’s response to an effective cancer treatment, known as PD-1 blockade immunotherapy. The team from Kyoto University have created a new molecular code that ensures a supply of energy to cancer-killing T-cells. The molecular code is highly effective at targeting cancer cells when […]

Researchers identify a key enzyme in tumours

Researchers have identified a key enzyme that cancerous tumours rely on to grow and spread within the body. Described as cancer’s “Achilles Heel”, scientists believe that targeting this enzyme stops tumour cells from growing and spreading. The findings could accelerate the development of new treatments for solid-tumour cancers. Solid cancerous tumours rely on an available […]

ctDNA accurate at diagnosing rectal cancer relapse

Combining circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can more accurately predict the likelihood of locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) returning after treatment, Chinese scientists have found. In a new study published in PLOS Medicine, researchers describe how combining the techniques improved diagnosis and could improve treatment and outcomes for patients. In addition, […]

Measuring circulating tumour DNA can improve bladder cancer treatment

The presence of circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) is a crucial biomarker for patients with bladder cancer (urothelial carcinoma) researchers have found in a new study. Scientists suggest that post-operative screening for ctDNA could improve cancer treatments and patient outcomes. The authors hope the findings could help improve outcomes for bladder cancer and more broadly illustrates […]

Promising new immunotherapy for colorectal cancer patients

Patients with advanced colorectal cancer can benefit from treatment with advanced immunotherapy, known as immune checkpoint inhibitor PD-1/PD-L1, scientists have discovered. The findings provide new hope for colorectal cancer patients and more broadly demonstrate the incredible potential for immunotherapies to extend life and treat all forms of cancer. If chemotherapy fails, patients with microsatellite stable […]
