  • Mini tumors predict how cancer responds to heat treatment
    Posted on June 3, 2020 at 5:04 am

    Hyperthermia has shown promise in the treatment of cancer in previous studies. Now, in a new study by scientists at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, the researchers tested the effects of a combination of heat and radiation on mini tumors grown in a spheroid, where cells are placed in a three-dimensional structure. The research is published in the journal Scientific Reports. […]

  • Novel 3D imaging technique could prove to be valuable for wide range of studies

    A collaboration between Colorado State University and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign resulted in a new, 3D imaging technique to visualize tissues and other biological samples on a microscopic scale, with potential to assist with cancer or other disease diagnoses. […]

  • Deep vein clots in critical COVID-19 illness
    Posted on June 1, 2020 at 3:02 am

    A new research paper published in the journal JAMA Network Open in May 2020 reports a high incidence of deep vein clots in patients with severe COVID-19 at a single French medical center. This could indicate the need for systematic anticoagulant therapy in these patients as a preventive measure. […]

    A new landmark study by researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) found that patients with a vascular condition, called an abdominal aortic aneurysm, received no benefits from taking a common antibiotic drug to reduce inflammation. […]

  • New technique offers high-resolution 3D view inside tumors
    Posted on May 27, 2020 at 12:50 am

    Malignant tumors consume nutrients and oxygen faster than healthy cells. To do so, they recruit blood vessels in their environment. Depending on tumor type and genetic profile, there are differences on how tumors look internally. […]
