Experimental 'Nano-Chemo' Particle to Treat Bladder Cancer

Working with mice and rats, researchers have developed a way to successfully deliver nano-sized, platinum-based chemotherapy drugs to treat a form of bladder cancer called nonmuscle-invasive that is ... read more

3D Microscopy Gives More Accurate Cancer Diagnosis

A novel microscopy technique to examine tumor tissue in three dimensions can more accurately diagnose cancer than current two-dimensional methods, according to a ... read more

Comparing Cancer Drug Effectiveness from Cells to Mice to Man

Researchers who studied the cancer drug gemcitabine in cell culture, mouse models and humans have shown that the drug, at administered (tolerated) dose, arrests cell growth during cancer progression. ... read more
