Smart contact lenses for cancer diagnostics and screening

(LOS ANGELES) – August 11, 2022 – Scientists from the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation (TIBI) have developed a contact lens that can capture and detect exosomes, nanometer-sized vesicles found in bodily secretions which have the potential for being diagnostic cancer biomarkers. The lens was designed with microchambers bound to antibodies that can capture exosomes … Read more

Men have greater cancer risk because of biology NOT because they drink and smoke more, study claims

Men notoriously drink and smoke more than women — but that is not the reason they have a higher cancer risk. A major study suggests biological differences are the real reason behind the disparity between sexes. Understanding these differences could help to improve prevention and treatment, researchers say. The study looked at 300,000 middle-aged and … Read more

Biological differences make men more susceptible to cancer than women

For decades, doctors have consistently noticed that men seem more likely to develop a range of cancers compared to women. This sex-based difference in cancer risk has often been waved away as a result of an assortment of lifestyle factors, from smoking and diet to occupational exposures. But more recently, researchers have begun to identify … Read more

New UCI-led study reveals computation-guided approach to suppressing cancer

Irvine, CA – Aug. 10, 2022 – A new study, led by researchers from the University of California, Irvine and the University of California, San Diego, reveals a new computation-guided approach to identify small molecules that can restore aspects of wild-type p53 tumor suppression function to mutated p53 , which play an important role in … Read more

Study examines ‘black boxing’ in breast cancer survivorship care

RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Today, many women diagnosed with breast cancer live long after completing their cancer treatments and have post-treatment health and information needs. Unfortunately, across healthcare systems, survivorship care is neither consistent nor systematically implemented. Credit: SPP/UC Riverside.
