CTRC enrolls first patients in novel phase II study for sarcoma -- living virus destroys cancer cell

...oma family tumors, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, synovial sarcoma, fibrosarcoma and leiomyosarcoma. The second patient to enroll in the study was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2005 and 11 months later received an additional diagnosis for a rare form of sarcoma. A specialist at the Dana-Farber Ca...

Arthritis: What Wnt wrong?

...y cytokines were produced in primary cartilage and synovial cells from arthritic versus normal joints. While OA cells did not differ from controls, primary RA cells produced TNF-a, IL-1 and IL-6 at levels 2- to 4-fold above controls. Importantly, this effect could be replicated in normal cells when they wer...
