Imaging System Helps Surgeons Remove Tiny Ovarian Tumors

Ovarian cancer is usually diagnosed only after it has reached an advanced stage, with many tumors spread throughout the abdomen. Most patients undergo surgery to remove as many of these tumors as possible, but because some are so small and widespread, it is difficult to eradicate all of them. Researchers at MIT, working with surgeons […]

Vistusertib Plus Paclitaxel – Promising Results In Ovarian Cancer

Administering a new targeted cancer drug with chemotherapy has shown promise in an early clinical trial, in patients with ovarian or lung cancer for whom all other treatments had failed. The combination of vistusertib along with paclitaxel (Taxol) chemotherapy caused tumours of over half of patients with ovarian cancer and over a third with lung […]

Fighting Ovarian And Uterine Cancers With Sticky Nanoparticles

A team of researchers has found that a treatment using bioadhesive nanoparticles loaded with a potent chemotherapy drug proved more effective and less toxic than conventional treatments for gynecological cancer. The work was led by professor Mark Saltzman at the Yale School of Engineering and Applied Science and professor Alessandro Santin at the Yale School […]

Psaptides Attack Ovarian Cancer On Two Fronts

Two forms of a peptide derived from a naturally-occurring human protein can force tumors to shrink significantly in an animal model of metastatic ovarian cancer, according to a team led by researchers from Boston Children’s Hospital’s Vascular Biology Program, the University of Bergen and Weill Cornell Medical College. The peptides, dubbed psaptides, stimulate a response […]
