New way to tackle cancer cells

New way to tackle cancer cells

In-situ assembly of amphiphilic peptides with accompanying cellular functions inside a living cell (i.e., intracellular assembly) and their interaction with cellular components have been emerging as a versatile strategy in controlling cellular fate. However, achieving spatiotemporal control (i.e., inside cellular organelles or other sub-compartments) over the self-assembly of synthetic molecules inside the cell is challenging […]

Inherited gene variations tied to treatment-related hearing loss in cancer patients

Inherited gene variations tied to treatment-related hearing loss in cancer patients

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital investigators have discovered inherited genetic variations that are associated with rapid hearing loss in young cancer patients treated with the drug cisplatin. The research appears in the current online issue of the scientific journal Nature Genetics. Cisplatin is one of the most widely used anti-cancer drugs and is a mainstay […]
