Mushroom-derived compound could stamp out HPV infe...

A compound derived from mushrooms may provide a new therapeutic option for treating human papillomavirus and curbing HPV-related cancers. Researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center Medical School at Houston treated HPV-positive mice with active hexose correlated compound, or AHCC, a natural supplement produced from the shiitake mushroom family, and found that a once-daily treatment of the compound began to...

Radiation able to be securely stored in nontoxic m...

Researchers have discovered that microscopic “bubbles” developed at Kansas State University are safe and effective storage lockers for harmful isotopes that emit ionizing radiation for treating tumors. The findings can benefit patient health and advance radiation therapy used to treat cancer and other diseases, said John M. Tomich, a professor of biochemistry and molecular biophysics who is affiliated with the...

Key enzyme in pancreatic cancer growth

A study by the Imperial College London, funded by the U.K. research charity Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund, examined the role of Hedgehog, whose usual job is to send signals to cells in embryos to divide and grow into the correct body parts. But while Hedgehog usually switches off when the embryo is formed, in many cancers, including pancreatic, it becomes abnormally reactivated. Hedgehog cannot function without the help of...

5th Cancer Targets & Therapeutics Conference ...

Antipsychotic drugs use to treat brain tumors

Researchers are finding more potential uses for existing drugs by repurposing them to treat other medical conditions. One class of FDA-approved antipsychotic drugs may provide a new approach to treating the most aggressive form of primary brain cancer, glioblastoma. A team of scientists at the UC San Diego School of Medicine made the discovery, using a technology platform called small hairpin RNA (shRNA). The shRNA sequences...
