Cancer Immunotherapy Is Not the Holy Grail: A New Study Casts a Shadow

There is no doubt that the use of recently approved drugs to “boost” the immune response to cancer cells represents a novelty that has enriched the arsenal of ammunition against human cancer Nevertheless, even though some of these drugs (i.e. the class of drugs named Immune-checkpoint-Inhibitors, ICi) have been sometimes hailed as “wonder drugs,” the … Continue reading Cancer Immunotherapy Is Not the Holy Grail: A New Study Casts a Shadow

No more doubts: e-cigs are less toxic than traditional cigarettes.

International Replica project network validated the conclusion of the most important studies on e-cigs. It also confirmed the lower toxicity of aerosol produced by electronic cigarettes in comparison to conventional ones. Thousands of studies with different and often inconsistent results have so far been the primary snag to evaluate the toxicity of e-cigarettes. An issue … Continue reading No more doubts: e-cigs are less toxic than traditional cigarettes.

Single-cell sequencing and bioinformatic tools applications discussed in Research Review

Nowadays, single-cell RNA sequencing technologies and related bioinformatics tools are emerging as essential devices for dissecting tumors at single-cell resolution and understanding carcinogenesis and drug response mechanisms, representing a turning point in cancer research. The most significant outcomes have been collected and discussed in the review “Single-cell RNA sequencing and bioinformatics as tools to decipher … Continue reading Single-cell sequencing and bioinformatic tools applications discussed in Research Review

Tumor Blood Vessel Growth May Be Target to Treat Glioblastoma and Other Cancers

Figure 1. TMEM230 promotes aggressive tumor behavior in a human cell line model of GBM. Down regulation of TMEM230 resulted both in fewer tumor cells and less vascularization 3D tissue models Figure 2 TMEM230 promotes vascular mimicry by inducing cancer cells to generate vessel like structures. A novel protein regulator of tumor angiogenesis, TMEM230, was … Continue reading Tumor Blood Vessel Growth May Be Target to Treat Glioblastoma and Other Cancers

Research Supports More Effective Choices Than Ever for Drug-Free Pain Relief During Labor and Delivery

Researchers coordinated by Professor Antonio Giordano, M.D., Ph.D., Founder and Director of the Sbarro Health Research Organization (SHRO) have highlighted the effectiveness of non-pharmacological analgesic techniques during childbirth in a review recently published in the journal Eukaryotic Gene Expression. “The search for alternative analgesic techniques is a promising and exciting research field,” comments the first author, … Continue reading Research Supports More Effective Choices Than Ever for Drug-Free Pain Relief During Labor and Delivery

Elucidation of Novel mechanisms regulating the tumor suppressor RBL1/p107 levels in mesothelioma and lung cancer cells

Research Alert The retinoblastoma-like (RBL)1/p107 protein is a member of the retinoblastoma (RB) family including the retinoblastoma (RB)1/p105 protein and RBL2/p130. They are key regulators of the cell cycle and play a central role in modulating cell proliferation.  RB proteins act as tumor suppressors and their dysregulation is associated with tumor initiation. However, the mechanisms … Continue reading Elucidation of Novel mechanisms regulating the tumor suppressor RBL1/p107 levels in mesothelioma and lung cancer cells
