A new blood test for cancer detecting without the need for invasive procedures

A simple blood test, reducing or eliminating the need for more invasive procedures, has been developed by the researchers from Purdue University. It will give an opportunity for doctors to monitor a patient's cancer (lat. Carcinoma). The researchers have identified a series of proteins in blood plasma that, when elevated, signify that the patient has cancer. This work was done with samples from breast cancer patients, but it is possible the method could work for any type of cancer and other types of diseases.

New compound that reprograms protein normally found in sperm kills cancer cells' energy-generating system

Israeli researchers found a synthetic compound to disable the enzymes that allow cancer (lat. Carcinoma) cells to metastasize. The novel cancer therapy uses E260 anti-cancer agent that imposes metabolic stress and cell death in cancer cells. Such enzyme is found only in metastatic cancer cells and normal sperm cells. This new approach forms the basis for promising cancer treatment.

The test can detect 13 kinds of cancers from a single drop of blood

Japanese scientists had invented an innovational blood-test that can detect 13 types of cancers. The innovatory test is based on the diagnostic from one drop of the blood. Usually, the blood test can not identify several types of cancer at the same time. If the validity of the test will be confirmed, then with its help it will be capable to accelerate the diagnosis and significantly reduce the number of lethal consequences. However, this will be capable just after three years when all tests will be completed, and the drug will receive approval from the government.

Brain cancer treatment that delivers cancer-killing viruses bypassing the blood-brain barrier

The naturally occurring virus could be an effective method of immunotherapy for patients with brain tumors and other forms of cancers (lat. Carcinoma) that could spread to the brain. Moreover, this completely new treatment method could deliver cancer-killing viruses to the brain through the blood-brain barrier that protects the brain from pathogens. Specialists at the University of Leeds are very optimistic about reovirus therapy aiming to fight the severe brain tumors within 5 years. The non-toxic form of treatment can be used in conjunction with the traditional methods to increase the number of killed tumor cells providing all-around safer option for brain cancer sufferers.

3D print explosive materials with custom inkjet printer

A new way to 3D print energetic materials using inkjet printing technology was developed by the researchers from Purdue University. The project gives an opportunity for energetic materials to be deposited with unprecedented precision and safety. Energetic materials, that consist of explosives and pyrotechnics, can be something of a handful, and in cоntrast wіth what people might think, they’re not just used for blowing things up or making firework displays.
