New Genetic Syndrome Predisposes the Body to Cancer

A research led by Jordi Surrallés, professor of the Department of Genetics and Microbiology at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, director of the Genetics Unit at the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau and lead researcher at the Centre for Biomedical Network Research on Rare Diseases (CIBERER), has

Mitochondria Drive Cell Survival in Times of Need

The research, published in Molecular Cell, builds on previous work by McGill professor Nahum Sonenberg, one of the senior authors of the new study. Cells in our body grow in size, mass and numbers through a process governed by a master regulator known as mTOR (Mechanistic Target of Rapamycin). Sonenberg discovered years

Chemotherapy Pain Could be Eased by Jetlag Drug Study Suggests

The drug -- known as melatonin -- appeared to prevent pain caused by chemotherapy damage to nerves. It blocked harmful effects on nerve health, the study with rats shows. Experts say the findings help scientists understand more about ways to limit painful side effects of chemotherapy. Scientists from the Universities of Edinburgh

Chemo-Boosting Drug Discovered for Leukemia

In a study published in Cancer Cell, researchers at the Francis Crick Institute, King's College London and Barts Cancer Institute discovered that acute myeloid leukemia (AML) - the most common acute leukemia affecting adults - causes bone marrow to 'leak' blood, preventing chemotherapy from being delivered properly. Drugs that reversed bone

Possible Treatment for Deadly Weight Loss

Doctors have known about this serious complication affecting cancer patients for a long time. The ancient Greeks called it cachexia, meaning "bad condition." Many cancer patients develop cachexia. An estimated 20 to 30 per cent of those with the condition may die of it and not from their tumors. For many of

Drinking Coffee Could Lead to a Longer life

Drinking coffee was associated with a lower risk of death due to heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and respiratory and kidney disease for African-Americans, Japanese-Americans, Latinos and whites. People who consumed a cup of coffee a day were 12 percent less likely to die compared to those who didn't drink coffee.
