UCLA researchers develop new nanomaterials to deliver anti-cancer drugs to cells
...hat these nanoparticles are biocompatible, contain tubular
pores and are relatively easy to modify, Zink said. Additional modification by attaching a ligand against a cancer-cell-specific receptor can make the nanoparticles recognizable by cancer cells. A critical obstacle and challenge for cancer therapy ...
Advances in screening and markers improve early detection of colorectal cancer
...e centimeter was missed and all missed tumors were tubular
adenomas, or non-cancerous tumors. Based on these results, researchers established the colorectal tumor miss rate as zero percent (up to 2%) for significant tumors and 12 percent for all tumors. However, no significant difference of missed lesions ...

GI screening: Racing time or wasting time?
... Caucasian patients had a higher risk for proximal tubular
adenoma while African American patients had a higher risk for proximal adenocarcinoma and proximal tubulovillous adenoma. Tubulovillous adenomas have a higher rate of progression to cancer. There was a trend towards females having more advanced neo...

SCAI Founders' Lecture traces impressive progress in interventional cardiology
...es would be propped open virtually end-to-end with tubular
metal scaffolding. Fewer still could have envisioned how to dismantle that mesh support system once the artery healed. Dr. Richard S. Stack, professor emeritus of medicine at Duke University, Durham, NC, had that vision. Today, during the Society fo...
Understanding cell death may bring new life to kidney treatment
...or apoptosis, particularly in the energy-consuming tubular
cells of the kidneys, he says. Fifty percent mortality rates from resulting ischemic renal failure haven't changed in nearly as many years, Dr. Dong says. Tubular cells which have the daunting daily task of reabsorbing nearly 50 gallons of usuable f...
