Is DNA fate? Are cell mutations really the cause of cancer? A Fred Hutch skin cancer and stem cell scientist poses other possibilities.
Most pancreatic cancer cells have relatively few mutations on their surface to attract the attention of cancer-killing immune T cells.
Understanding the evolutionary path that tumors follow is essential for designing effective clinical interventions.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning can help identify genetic changes that lead to cancer—and which treatments work best.
A combo treatment of Tafinlar and Mekinist may be better than chemo for some children with a brain cancer called low-grade glioma.
People who never smoked were less likely to have cell mutations linked to lung cancer.
I’ll try to be brief, but there’s a lot to tell you.
Things have evolved pretty quickly. First, the non-existent pain in my cancerous rib went from zero to 60 in the middle of a game of golf.
I have been incredibly fortunate to be on a medication for six years and nine months with no growth until recently.
I hoped the first sign of “growth” in one of my tumors was a measurement error, but the PET scan told me that I’m not fooling anyone.
Mutations can affect how viruses behave and how well drugs and vaccines work.
A slow vaccine rollout and the emergence of new coronavirus mutations threaten progress in reducing new cases and death.
Scientists studied how a series of stepwise mutations in normal blood cells could trigger the transformation to cancer.
Tumors with large numbers of genetic mutations may be especially susceptible to treatment with immunotherapy.
Tumors known as gliomas generally don’t respond to the immunotherapy drugs even when the tumor cells are “hypermutated."
Researchers have long sought a way to select the people who are most likely to respond to the treatments, and spare others the side effects.
