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.
A new modeling study estimates the number, proportion, and type of specific cancers associated with the under or overconsumption of foods and sugar-sweetened beverages among American adults.
Researchers at the Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine have found that cancer patients in New Mexico have lower chances of survival when compared to the rest of the nation.
A new Journal of Diabetes study from China, which has the highest number of people with diabetes among all countries, found that type 2 diabetes was linked with an elevated risk of 11 types of cancer in men and 13 types of cancer in women.
