The early identification of cancer may be aided by locusts’ ability to distinguish between healthy and cancerous cells

Researchers at Michigan State University have demonstrated that locusts can identify between several cancer cell lines in addition to being able to “smell” the difference between cancer cells and healthy cells. Patients shouldn’t be concerned about locusts infesting their doctors’ offices, though. Instead, according to the researchers, this discovery could serve as the foundation for […]

Hope for a cure is provided by research on the molecular drilling of skin cancer cells

According to research that opens the door to potential new treatments for the condition, skin cancer cells create “molecular drills” in order to infiltrate healthy tissues and spread throughout the body. The London Institute of Cancer Research has identified the gene that promotes tumour growth. Melanoma cells growing in 3D skin-like material in the lab […]
