AIDS and Cancer Links
People living with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) are at greater risk of various forms of cancer. In fact, when these cancers appear, it means the virus has turned into full-blown AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).
Leukemia and Workplace Chemicals
Benzene is a chemical that's used in a number of industrial processes. People who are exposed to this chemical in the workplace may have increased cancer risks.
Diabetes Linked to Blood Cancers
Doctors have to carefully watch their diabetes patients for other serious health problems like kidney disease and heart disease. Now, it seems doctors should keep an eye out for blood cancers as well.
How to Turn Cancer Off
If certain changes can cause a cell to become cancerous, reversing those changes should return the cell to normal. It may be simple, but it's not easy.
A Double Negative Effect on Lymphoma
Cancer cells are extremely versatile and adaptable. They find ways to wiggle out of any attempts to restrain them. Researchers are working with the very mechanism that cancer uses to avoid death to develop a potentially powerful therapy for lymphoma.
Chemo Gets the Job Done Alone
A long-term risk analysis of Hodgkin lymphoma patients shows that the traditional practice of using radiation together with chemotherapy may be too much, causing more problems without extending life expectancy.
Safer Treatment for Skin Lymphoma
Part of the process of developing and testing drugs involves seeing if treatments work in similar conditions, and science is full of surprises.
Two Sisters Help Understand One Disease
It's well known that cancer can be passed between a donor and recipient during a transplant operation. One such exchange has actually advanced the scientific understanding of lymphoma.
New Lymphoma Bull's-Eye
It's the most aggressive blood cancer. Unfortunately, Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma ( DLBCL ) is also the most common form of lymphoma in adults. But there is some good news - researchers may have a new target for treating this disease.
Horizon Brightening for Lymphoma
Just because something works in mice, doesn't mean it will work in humans. That being said, a new mouse study holds out hope for a new therapy for lymphoma. Researchers have identified two molecules that are better killers of lymphoma than existing therapies. These findings, if they hold true for humans, could lead to new cancer therapies. Ask your doctor about the very latest science relating to lymphoma therapies.
