Nigeria: FG and Cost of Cancer Screening

THE Federal Government’s recent directive to its hospitals to reduce the cost of cancer screening, though very commendable, is long overdue, considering that late diagnosis of the disease has resulted in the high rate of cancer related deaths in the country. Cancer is one of the leading causes of deaths in the world, especially in developing countries, which carry about 80 per cent of the burden, globally....

Coffee Drinking Linked To Lower Risk Of Common Ski...

New research presented at a conference in the US on Monday finds that drinking coffee is linked to a lower risk of a common form of skin cancer known as basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Results of a prospective study that followed over 25,000 cases of skin cancer suggest coffee may be an important dietary option to prevent BCC. The research is the work of Dr Fengju Song and colleagues. Song is a postdoctoral fellow in the...

7TH DUESSELDORF SYMPOSIUM ON IMMUNOTOXICOLOGY Biol...

Heinrich Heine University Duesseldorf September 21 – 24, 2011 AhR research has taken great momentum recently, with a number of seminal discoveries, especially regarding its role in physiological events. This has opened new arenas, attracted new groups into the field, and led to a steep interest in the potential of AhR as a therapeutic target for the immune...

Canadian-made virus shows promise as cancer treatm...

An Ottawa-based research team has developed a virus that is showing promise as a new way of attacking and shrinking cancer tumours while leaving healthy tissue alone. It’s early days in the still-experimental field of therapeutic cancer viruses, called oncolytic viruses. But this new study from researchers from the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) and the University of Ottawa advances the field a little...

Genetic Link Predisposes to Mesothelioma

An investigation led by scientists at the University of Hawaii Cancer Center, Honolulu, and Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia has identified germline mutations in the BAP1 gene that predispose individuals to malignant mesothelioma. The research, published online yesterday in Nature Genetics, describes two U.S. families with a high incidence of mesothelioma, as well as other cancers, associated with mutations of the...

Combining Gene and Cell Therapy Is Arming Research...

A few years ago most pharma and biotech companies ran away from autologous therapies, especially complex cell-based treatments. Following Dendreon’s introduction of its autologous dendritic cell therapy to treat prostate cancer, however, researchers are venturing into one-off treatments for difficult to treat diseases. In a huge scientific boost to the entire field of cell-based adoptive immunotherapy, scientists from...
