We need your help to achieve the goal of growing our online, geographically searchable database of resources and support for cancer patients, their families and caregivers. Whether you're in the initial phase of shock, in the battle, or handling the aftermath of cancer, our resources take out the stress of searching multiple places and thousands of online listings.
Researchers at the University of Oregon have uncovered a molecular mechanism by which the human stomach pathogen Helicobacter pylori is attracted to bleach, also known as hypochlorous acid or HOCI.
Scientists at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine and the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona have published a study in the journal Nature Communications revealing the structure of a key protein, known as a portal, in Epstein-Barr virus infection.
Australian researchers have unlocked the mystery as to why the chemotherapy drug 5-Fluorouracil is not effective at treating certain cancers.
A layer of cells that look like normal stomach lining on top of sites of stomach cancer can make it difficult to spot after removal of a Helicobacter pylori infection. In a recent study, researchers from Hiroshima University have uncovered the origin of this layer of cells: it is produced by the cancer tissue itself.
Stem cells are not only key players in tissue regeneration, they are also capable of taking direct action against bacteria.
A cancer therapy based on the work of Ben Seon, PhD, at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for patients with an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Biosensors are currently used in healthcare to monitor blood glucose; however, they also have the potential to detect bacteria.
A new study in JNCI Cancer Spectrum finds that dramatic increases in cancer survival in adolescents and young adults are undermined by continuing disparities by race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status.
Extended use of popular drugs to treat heartburn, ulcers and acid reflux has been associated with an increased risk of premature death. However, little has been known about the specific causes of death attributed to the drugs.
Helicobacter pylori, a globally distributed gastric bacterium, is genetically highly adaptable. Microbiologists at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet in Munich have now characterized its population structure in individual patients, demonstrating an important role of antibiotics for its within-patient evolution.
