Approximately 80% of cancer patients experience substantial muscle wasting or loss of muscular tissue, and 30% of these individuals die as a result of this illness. According to new mouse research, the severity of muscle wasting is related to the kind, size, and location of the tumour.

Scientists at Duke-NUS Medical School and colleagues in Singapore have sequenced the response to viral infection in colony-bred cave nectar bats (Eonycteris spelaea) at single-cell resolution. Published in the journal Immunity, the findings contribute to insights into bat immunity that could

Appendiceal cancer (malignancies of the appendix, a small tissue pouch that is part of the gastrointestinal tract) is very rare, occurring in perhaps one or two people per 1 million per year. Prognoses are mixed, with a 5-year survival rate of 67 to 97 per cent for low-grade tumours detected

Scientists at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research have identified molecular profiles of the surrounding matrix of a common type of lung cancer that might indicate which patients are likely to develop aggressive tumours.

Although leprosy is among the oldest and most enduring diseases in the world, the bacteria that cause it may also have a surprisingly strong capacity to grow and regenerate an essential organ.

A Ludwig Cancer Research study has revealed a single protein expressed at high levels by cancer cells across a broad range of malignancies that erects a multifaceted barrier to anti-cancer immune responses in mouse models of cancer and so shields tumours from immune detection and destruction

Immune checkpoint inhibitors such as Keytruda and Opdivo work by unleashing the immune system's T cells to attack tumour cells. Their introduction a decade ago marked a major advance in cancer therapy, but only 10 per cent to 30 per cent of treated patients experience long-term improvement.
Scientists have identified a drug that could be a game-changer for patients. Istradefylline, which is already approved for Parkinson's disease, could reduce not only the harmful effects of cisplatin but also improve its anti-tumour properties.

The amount of glucose (sugar) consumed by internal organs rises during intense aerobic exercise, according to the researchers, which decreases the amount of energy available to the tumour. The study discovered how probability of cancer metastatic spread can be reduced by aerobic exercise.

With over 2 million new cases each year, colon cancer is the third most prevalent disease in the world. The majority of patients receive their diagnosis while the tumour is still in the colon or rectum.
Cancer cells require proteins that bind copper ions in order to develop and spread throughout the human body. Recent studies on the interactions between proteins and how they bind to metals in cancer-related proteins have revealed possible new therapeutic targets.
