Now scientists have used CRISPR to remove and add genes to these cells to help them recognize a patient’s specific tumor cells.
An experimental cancer-killing virus has been administered to a human patient for the first time, with hopes the testing will ultimately reveal evidence of a new means of successfully fighting cancer tumors in people.
There's a lot of evidence to suggest that the gut microbiota play a role. Over the next year, US researchers will try to suss out how millions of tiny microbes living inside us might make the difference between a cancer treatment's success and its failure.
The Nobel Prize Committee has honored two researchers for their role in pioneering a new avenue for cancer treatment, one where the therapy targets the immune system, which then goes on to attack the cancer.
The drug Larotrectinib, which had no severe side effects, showed “unprecedented” success with certain pediatric tumors, as well as several adult forms of cancer.
Thanks to the astonishing effectiveness of the HPV vaccine, Australia is on track to becoming the first country to eliminate cervical cancer.
They’re designed to kill cancer cells, and they kill themselves in the process.
Researchers say a combination of new treatments can stop the world's deadliest form of skin cancer—melanoma.
A Food and Drug Administration panel has recommended approval of a leukemia treatment that rewires a patient’s immune cells to fight cancer.
A first-of-its-kind nanoparticle vaccine immunotherapy has been developed that targets several different cancer types
A chemical found in tumors may help stop tumor growth, according to a new study.
Two infants diagnosed with an aggressive and previously incurable form of leukemia are now in remission, after British doctors say they cured the babies using so-called "designer cells".
The CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technique has been used in its first human trial. Scientists at Sichuan University in Chengdu, China began a trial last month to treat a lung cancer patient.
