Researchers Seek to Develop Genetically Engineered Brain Cancer Treatment

Scientists at Purdue University are trying to develop a new treatment for glioblastoma tumors. Glioblastoma is a type of cancer that originates in the spinal cord and/or brain. This cancer is fatal, with a median time of survival of 14 months. Conventional treatments for other cancers, including immunotherapy and chemotherapy, are ineffective on this particular cancer. These treatments work by blood cells being taken from a patient then reintroduced back into their bodies after genetic engineering to fight cancer cells. This study was led by associate professor Sandro Matosevic of Purdue’s department of industrial and molecular pharmaceutics. The study’s objective…

Advancements in Medical AI Are Improving Timely Esophageal Cancer Detection

Scientists in China recently identified an innovative system that considerably increases the rate of detection of esophageal cancer lesions. Esophageal cancer starts from the esophagus, which ferries food from the throat to the stomach. Early detection of this particular cancer is crucial as rates of survival considerably increase when the illness is identified and treated in its early stages. Unfortunately, this cancer is often diagnosed in its later stages when patients begin presenting with symptoms, which makes treatment more difficult. So, how does artificial intelligence improve esophageal cancer detection? Artificial intelligence analyzes endoscopic images using advanced algorithms to identify lesions…
