Abstract

Abstract for Scientists While decades of cancer research have firmly established multiple “hallmarks of cancer” [1][1],[2][2], cancer’s genomic landscape remains to be fully understood. Particularly, the phenomenon of aneuploidy – gains and losses of large genomic regions, i.e. whole ch...read more

Breast Cancer: Therapeutic Approaches

Several different therapeutic approaches are used to treat breast cancer. These include chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy, and Immunotherapy. Discover the latest research on breast cancer therapeutic approaches here.

Immune System in Humans: Tissues & Ages

Mapping the human immune system spatially, within and between tissues, will provide the basis for studying mechanisms of tissue residency and the effects of aging. Find new research on analysis of the immune system by multiple approaches here.

Chromosomal Duplication

Chromosomal duplication is a result of extra genetic material within the area of the chromosome. The duplication may have no effect or may be expressed in the phenotype of that individual. Some duplications are thought to be of evolutionary selection. Discover the latest research on chromosomal duplication here.

Drug Resistance in Cancer

Drug resistance to cancer treatments is a major concern for patients with the disease. Single and multi-drug resistance to cancer therapeutics can occur, making it difficult to kill the cancer cells. Here is the latest research on drug resistance in cancer.

Chromosomal Abnormalities

Chromosome abnormalities can be classified as either structural or numerical. Numerical abnormalities include duplications or deletion of a pair of chromosomes, such as Down Syndrome. Structural abnormalities include missing, extra or switched parts of a chromosome. Discover the latest research on chromosomal abnormalities here.

NFkB: Linking Inflammation and Cancer

Nuclear factor-κB (NFkB) signaling is an important pathway for regulating inflammation and is dysregulated in cancer. Chronic inflammation is involved in cancer development and progression. Discover the latest research here.

Apoptosis

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis

Inflammation & Obesity

Obesity is the accumulation of abnormal or excessive fat that may interfere with the maintenance of an optimal state of health. The excess of macronutrients in the adipose tissues stimulates them to release inflammatory mediators such as tumor necrosis factor α and interleukin 6, and reduces production of adiponectin, predisposing to a pro-inflammatory state. Discover the latest research on inflammation and obesity here.

American Thoracic Society: Allergy, Immunology & Inflammation

This feed has been developed in conjunction with the American Thoracic Society for the benefit of its Allergy, Immunology, and Inflammation Assembly. It highlights new and impactful papers on allergy, asthma, genetics, and the pathogenesis of lung diseases.

NK Cells: Viral Immunity

Natural Killer (NK) cells are critical for the containment of viral replication, particularly during early infection. Some viruses such as HIV and influenza have developed mechanisms to evade NK detection and infect the host. Here is the latest research on NK cells and viral immunity.

Apoptosis in Cancer

Apoptosis is an important mechanism in cancer. By evading apoptosis, tumors can continue to grow without regulation and metastasize systemically. Many therapies are evaluating the use of pro-apoptotic activation to eliminate cancer growth. Here is the latest research on apoptosis in cancer.

Signal Transduction & Gene Expression (Keystone)

Tumor cells have their own unique signal transduction and gene expression control. Targeting these specific cellular mechanisms and genetic proflies of cancer cells is an area of therapeutic exploration for some cancers. Discover the latest research on this topic with this feed.
