Cancer research - basic

The technology developed by Prof. Yuval Shaked's research group was registered as a patent and is now in the process of being commercialized
Researchers are trying to find treatments adapted to protein networks that characterize cancer tumors
Researchers have discovered that two epigenetic events (removing and adding methyl from DNA) lead to the differentiation of stem cells into muscle cells and thus to the regeneration and healing of muscles after their injury
The error rate of the existing biopsy tests is 30%. Mistakes that are fatal because the test turns up clay but the cancer exists and continues to spread. Good imaging can improve accuracy
The ability of the cells of the immune system to inhibit the cancer cells depends to a large extent on the distance between the receptors by means of which they check and identify the "suspicious" cell
Researchers at the Hebrew University and the Hadassah Medical Center have developed an ointment to treat the severe side effects of targeted cancer treatment and significantly improve the quality of life of patients.
A team of researchers from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev has developed a breakthrough technology that includes a revolutionary new test that will predict the response of cancer patients to immunotherapy with a higher percentage of accuracy than existing technologies. The results of the research were published in the prestigious magazine "Science Advances"
A certain essential protein increases the expression of another protein in cancer cells in the uterus - and this transforms its skin, encourages them to divide and thus contributes to the spread of the tumor
The institute's scientists reveal how cancer leads to fatal emaciation and point the way to treatment
Hebrew University researchers have discovered the molecular mechanism that allows pancreatic cancer to metastasize and become fatal. The discovery offers new treatment methods for the first time
The researchers believe that they have succeeded in finding all the roles played by the ELG1 gene. The gene in question is also evolutionarily conserved in humans and mutations in it cause cancer, understanding its meaning in yeast can help fight the disease.
The creation of double-strand breaks in the DNA of certain cancer cells may help inhibit the growth
The Technion team for the iGEM synthetic biology competition that took place at the end of October in Paris: A technology to stop hair loss caused by chemotherapy * Students from Tel Aviv University won a gold medal for a new development that enables efficient and precise planning of messenger RNA molecules, so that they are expressed only in the target cells (for example in a tumor cancerous)
The researchers explain that today, the accepted method of treating cancer is surgical removal of the tumor, in combination with complementary treatments (chemotherapy, immunotherapy, etc.). Therapeutic ultrasound is a non-invasive alternative to destroying the cancerous tumor instead of surgery
Immunotherapy treatment may cause the spread of cancerous tumors
Researchers from Tel Aviv University discovered that aerobic activity may reduce the risk of metastatic cancer by 72%
Weizmann Institute of Science scientists and their research partners have mapped the presence of fungi in 35 different types of cancer ■ The fungi that live inside the cancerous tumors may facilitate the detection, diagnosis and perhaps even the treatment of cancer ■ "Fungal presence is a new and significant hallmark of cancer"
Weizmann Institute of Science scientists presented the possibility of reliable and accurate blood tests for cancer diagnosis
Prof. Yuval Ebenstein's laboratory was announced as one of the most advanced in Europe in the research and development of technological solutions for cancer
In the experiments conducted on mice, it was found that in the presence of the energy source (brain cells called astrocytes) the tumor was 100% fatal, and all the animals that got sick died within 4-5 weeks from the moment of its appearance. When the researchers eliminated the astrocytes, within a few days of starting the treatment, the tumor died and disappeared * A new method for curing one of the most violent types of cancer and other brain tumors
A small molecule that inhibits the spread of cancer metastases - an original development by researchers at the Technion, the Netherlands and the UK
Prof. Ronit Sachi-Painero: "I believe that in the future the small molecule will be available and will make immunological treatment accessible and effective for cancer patients."
The new technology we developed provides accurate data on the nature of the mutation based on the RNA sequencing of the tumor only - that is, without the need for DNA sequencing of the tumor and any sequencing of the healthy tissue
