Malaria drug halts cancer cell survival

A computer illustration of a cancer cell.© Getty Images/iStockphoto / Thinkstock Qatar-based researchers have proposed a way to effectively halt cancer cell production using an existing malaria drug that, they say, can stop proliferation.  The malaria drug, according to the team at Weill-Cornell Medicine in Qatar, could improve the effectiveness of a new class of […]

Turning white blood cells into 'living cancer drugs' with electric shocks

Turning white blood cells into 'living cancer drugs' with electric shocks

A promising new class of cancer treatments recruits the cells in our blood to fight tumors, using powerful gene-editing tools to transform a type of white blood cell — called a T cell — from an immune cell that normally targets bacterial or fungal infections into a living cancer drug. The genetic alterations could boost […]

Pune scientists use nanovesicles for improved cancer drug delivery

Pune scientists use nanovesicles for improved cancer drug delivery

According to the researchers, nanovesicles with the drugs loaded become water dispersible thus increasing the uptake by cancer cells. Researchers at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Pune have been able to increase the uptake of anticancer drug Alisertib by breast cancer cells and achieve greater ability to restrict cancer cell growth. […]

Glaxo to put faith in blockbuster cancer drugs

Glaxo to put faith in blockbuster cancer drugs

Emma Walmsley is set to put oncology at the heart of the turnaround of Glaxosmithkline’s core pharmaceuticals division. In a strategy update this week, Glaxo is expected to outline plans to focus on developing blockbuster cancer drugs as it rebuilds its portfolio in the medicines industry’s most lucrative market four years after it largely, and […]

IISER Pune uses nanovesicles to improve cancer drug delivery

By encapsulating the poorly water-soluble anticancer drug Alisertib in polysaccharide nano-sized balls or vesicles, researchers at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Pune have been able to increase its uptake by breast cancer cells and achieve greater ability to restrict cancer cell growth. Better uptake of the drug when encapsulated meant lower […]

Cancer drug screening: the historical perspective

Cancer drug screening: the historical perspective

Chemotherapy with cytotoxic and growth inhibitory drugs have played an important role in cancer therapy, used either alone or in combination with other treatment modalities such as surgery, radiation or biological therapy. Chemotherapy, in most instances, was the only alternative treatment for metastatic cancer – mainly given as drug combinations… Conventional chemotherapy has shown to […]
