Proteogenomic studies may provide a better understanding of how to match cancer patients with an effective treatment for their specific cancer.
According to a study the enzyme called serine palmitoyl-transferase can be utilized as a metabolically responsive “switch” that reduces the growth of tumor.
AZoLifeSciences speaks to Dr. James Whittle and Professor Geoff Lindeman about their research in enhancing breast cancer therapy through killing sleeper cells.
Precision medicine in cancer treatment uses genetic changes in the cancer cells to select the best therapies for individual patients.
With advances in genome sequencing, cancer treatments have increasingly sought to leverage the idea of "synthetic lethality," exploiting cancer-specific genetic defects to identify targets that are uniquely essential to the survival of cancer cells.
Researchers have developed a new pair of agents that show exceptional effectiveness for precision diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer in preclinical studies.
