Immune Memory Is Achieved by Epigenetic and Topological Rearrangements of DNA in Immune Cells

A team of researchers has discovered that the memory of the immune system relies on characteristic epigenetic features and a specific 3D arrangement of the DNA in the nucleus of memory cells, allowing for a fast activation of these cells. These ...

Previously Unidentified Proteins Suggest New Way to Diagnose Ovarian Cancer

A group has discovered previously unidentified ovarian cancer-specific membrane proteins. Their findings suggest a new strategy to diagnose ovarian ...

Existing Cancer Drug Could Be Repurposed to Fight Certain Aggressive Cancers

A team of scientists has found that an existing cancer drug could be repurposed to target a subset of cancers that currently lack targeted treatment options and is often associated with poor outcomes. This subset of cancers makes up 15 per cent of ...

Cancer's Origin Story Features Predictable Plot Line, Researchers Find

Human cells evolving in the laboratory undergo a series of predictable, sequential genetic changes that lead to pre-cancer. Blocking these changes may allow intervention before cancer ...
