CLL Patient Goes Into Remission Thanks to Single CAR T Cell

Researchers say a patient treated for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) in 2013 went into remission because of a single CAR T cell and the cells it produced as it multiplied, and has stayed cancer ... read more

Cancer 'Vaccine' Eliminates Tumors in Mice

Injecting minute amounts of two immune-stimulating agents directly into solid tumors in mice can eliminate all traces of cancer in the animals, including distant, untreated metastases, according to a ... read more

Why Hodgkin's Lymphoma Cells Grow Uncontrollably

Although classical Hodgkin's lymphoma is generally easily treatable today, many aspects of the disease still remain a mystery. A team has now identified an important signaling molecule in the ... read more

Radiotherapy After Chemo May Improve Survival in Patients With Advanced Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Patients with advanced Hodgkin's lymphoma who have large tumors at the time of diagnosis may benefit from radiotherapy after chemotherapy even when all traces of the cancer appear to have ... read more

Researchers Discover How Tumor-Killing Immune Cells Attack Lymphomas in Living Mice

Researchers reveal that chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells can induce tumor regression by directly targeting and killing cancer cells, uncovering new details of how these immune cells work and ... read more

A New Method to Diagnose Cancer Cells Inside Lymph Nodes

The vast majority of cancer deaths occur due to the spread of cancer from one organ to another, which can happen either through the blood or the lymphatic system. However, it can be tricky to detect ... read more

Killer Blows? Knockout Study of Pair of Mouse MicroRNA Provides Cancer Insight

Researchers used knockout mouse models created by gene editing to reveal that the miRNA miR-146b, like miR-146a, is involved in the development of cancers, with them having similar but not identical ... read more

New Strategies May Improve CAR-T Cell Therapy

Researchers have developed two new strategies that may improve the performance of chimeric antigen receptor therapy (CAR-T cell therapy) in treating ... read more

Long Periods of Viral Suppression Shown to Reduce Cancer Risk in Aging HIV Population

Early, sustained antiretroviral therapy (ART), which results in long-term viral suppression, helps to prevent AIDS-defining cancers and also non-AIDS-defining cancers, to a lesser degree. However, ... read more

Breaking Through a Tumor's Defenses

Researchers have shown that some tumors use not one but two levels of protection against the immune system. Knocking out one level boosted the protective effects of the second and vice versa. The ... read more

Molecular Culprit Behind Virus-Mediated Chronic Inflammation and Cancers Identified

Within cells infected by Kaposi sarcoma herpesvirus (KSHV), the human protein CADM1 interacts with viral proteins to promote chronic inflammation, which plays a major role in the development of ... read more

Attacking Lymphoma at the Source

The efficacy of target specific therapies in lymphoma is limited to subgroups of patients. Scientists have identified a mechanism that confers resistance against a common therapy for lymphoma. They ... read more
