UNITED STATES - The World Health Organization has issued a warning on the relationship between alcohol use and a number of oncological diseases. This publication was dedicated to the World Cancer Day, celebrated annually on February 4. According to scientists, alcohol can cause at least seven...

Scientists claim to develop a vaccine for all types of cancer

GERMANY - Scientists at Stanford University have developed a new vaccine that they say can treat all cancers, just one dose, reports Deutsche Welle. The vaccine consists of a combination of two drugs, activates the immune system and stimulates it to fight cancer. Scientists said the new...

Study: Linking exposure to high levels of mobile phone radiation and injury of male rats to cancer

UNITED STATES - Male mice exposed to very high levels of the same type of radiation from cell phones have cancer in the tissues surrounding their hearts, according to a draft report by US researchers on possible health risks for mobile phones. The initial report...

Vaccine cured mice from cancer and metastases

UNITED STATES - Recently, special attention has been paid to the development of new ways of diagnosing and treating cancer - scientists understand what else can provoke the development of tumors, how to prevent their appearance, if they already exist, how to help the...

Nicotine in electronic cigarettes may increase the risk of developing cancer

The growing popularity of electronic cigarettes has led to a fierce debate among health professionals. On the one hand, some physicians believe that the use of electronic cigarettes (wapping) is a relatively safe way to wean heavy smokers from much more dangerous tobacco products. On...

High-cholesterol diet causes tumours to form 100 times faster

UNITED STATES - New research has found that high-cholesterol diets increase the growth rate of cancer tumors 100 times. Scientists from the University of California, Los Angeles, for the first time, showed the mechanism of cholesterol-lowering effect on the risk of developing colon cancer and...

Scientists have discovered a cancer-causing enzyme

DENMARK, University of Copenhagen - The development of cancer was associated with the presence in the tissues of the colon of the enzyme GalNAc-T6, which causes the cells to mutate, turning them into cancer cells. About this discovery, scientists from the University of Copenhagen told the Journal...

A universal test will detect cancer

Scientists have moved one step further to one of the most important goals at the moment - a universal blood test that could show the presence of all types of cancer. A team from the Johns Hopkins University has tested a test that can...

Colorectal cancers rising in adults as young as in their 20s and 30s in the US

There has been a sharp rise in colorectal cancers in adults as young as in their 20s and 30s in the U.S., found a new study from the American Cancer Society (ACS). The vast majority of colorectal cancers are still found in older people, with...

Anti-tumor immune therapy for colon cancer works in mice, says new study

Researchers report that increasing expression of a chemical cytokine called LIGHT in mice with colon cancer activated the immune system's natural cancer-killing T-cells and caused primary tumors and metastatic tumors in the liver to shrink. A chemical found in tumors may help stop tumor growth,...

A developer test protects women from cervical cancer

Viruses that help the immune system defeat cancer

Using viruses to destroy cancer cells is an old idea, but an international team of researchers has presented data likely to turn a new page in the fight against tumors. Some viruses "in collaboration" with the immune system will be able to defeat cancer, say...

A virus is found that attacks brain cancer and invokes the immune system

The use of harmless for human viruses to help in the treatment of serious diseases can be called a promising medical technology. For example, adeno-associated viruses are used in gene therapy, which can insert their genome into the host genome. But in the treatment...

Scientists develop a test predicting breast cancer a year before its onset

Scientists have developed a DNA test that could diagnose deadly breast cancer a year before it occurs. Changes in part of DNA, described by researchers as "EFC # 93", refer to early warning of life threatening breast cancer. These changes occur in patients' blood before cancer...

Scientists say alcohol provokes several types of cancer at once
