Antibody for fighting cancer emerges

Antibody for fighting cancer emerges
While studying the underpinnings of multiple sclerosis, investigators came across important clues for how to treat a very different disease: cancer. Researchers describe an antibody that can precisely target regulatory T cells which in turn unleashes the immune system to kill cancer cells. The team reports that the antibody decreased tumor growth in models of melanoma, glioblastoma and colorectal carcinoma, making it an attractive candidate for cancer immunotherapy.

Ludwig researchers identify counterintuitive approach to treating a brain cancer
The loss of the tumor suppressor gene PTEN has been linked to tumor growth and chemotherapy resistance in the almost invariably lethal brain cancer glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Now, Ludwig researchers have shown that one way to override the growth-promoting effects of PTEN deletion is, surprisingly, to inhibit a separate tumor suppressor gene.

Biologists identify key step in lung cancer evolution
Biologists have identified a major switch that occurs as lung adenomas transition to more aggressive adenocarcinomas -- and that blocking this switch prevents the transition. The findings suggest drugs interfering with this switch could be useful in treating early-stage lung cancers.

Scientists find a likely genetic driver of smoking-related heart disease
Cigarette smoking accounts for about one fifth of cases of coronary heart disease (CHD), one of the leading causes of death worldwide, but precisely how smoking leads to CHD has long been unclear. Now, a team has uncovered a molecule that may at least partly explain the smoking-CHD connection.
