Along with data, cancer biology also requires a new generation of scientists who can bridge mathematics and statistics to determine the genetic changes occurring over time in drug resistance. https://news.cancerresearch/what-netflix-can-teach-us-about-treating-cancer/

Nanomedicine has great potential to safely treat children’s cancer. However, it is currently stymied by too little research.

Radiotherapy can be used before or after other treatments to make them more effective by, for example, shrinking the tumour before chemotherapy or treating cancer that remains after surgery. https://news.cancerresearch/what-are-cancer-radiotherapy-and-proton-beam-therapies/

Researchers are now exploring how your unique gut bacteria determine your cancer risk, and whether modifying its composition can control cancer progression and predict response to treatment.

Researchers at the Children’s Cancer Institute (CCI) in Sydney, together with collaborators in Prague, have found a new technique for tracking leukaemia cells containing a genetic change called BCR-ABL1. https://news.cancerresearch/new-childhood-leukaemia-subtype-found/

Most cancers are caused by small DNA mutations in a number of key genes, but prostate cancer is different to most cancers because it is more likely to be driven by complex rearrangements of DNA within the genome. Congratulations to the research team at Garvan for ground-breaking research into prostate cancer. #Endcancer #1stepcloser
