No bones about it, this protein slows down fracture-healing: Abundance of ApoE may explain why older people have more trouble healing broken bones

Broken bones are a bigger deal the older you are: even after they’ve healed, the bones of older people are weaker and more likely to re-fracture. And since more than 6 million Americans break a

How prostate cancer cells mimic bone when they metastasize: Understanding this process could lead to innovative and improved therapies

Prostate cancer often becomes lethal as it spreads to the bones, and the process behind this deadly feature could potentially be turned against it as a target for bone-targeting radiation and potential new therapies. In

New potential therapeutic target for pancreatic cancer discovered: Study demonstrates role of protein syndecan-1 in regulation of KRAS gene

Cancer cells demand enormous amounts of molecular “food” to survive and grow, and a study published March 27 online in Nature by researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center may have identified

Researchers 3D bio-print a model that could lead to improved anticancer drugs and treatments: Researchers create the first 3D in vitro model capable of isolating specific metastatic cells

University of Minnesota researchers have developed a way to study cancer cells which could lead to new and improved treatment. They have developed a new way to study these cells in a 3D in vitro
