Immunotherapy response studied in body-on-a-chip models

Clinicians are using patient-specific tumor 'organoid' models as a preclinical companion platform to better evaluate immunotherapy treatment for appendiceal cancer.

Quantum physics helps destroy cancer cells

Quantum physics helps destroy cancer cells

Researchers have found a way to enhance radiation therapy using novel iodine nanoparticles.

MasSpec Pen shows promise in pancreatic cancer surgery

MasSpec Pen shows promise in pancreatic cancer surgery

The MasSpec Pen has shown to accurately identify tissues and surgical margins directly in patients and differentiate healthy and cancerous tissue from banked pancreas samples.

Microneedles for painless drug delivery

Microneedles for painless drug delivery

Researchers suggest using microneedles for immunotherapy due to the high abundance of immune cells under the skin. The aim is to vaccinate or treat different diseases with minimal invasiveness.

Researchers use bioprinting to create nose cartilage

Researchers use bioprinting to create nose cartilage

Researchers have used 3D bioprinting technology to create custom-shaped cartilage. They aim to make it easier for surgeons to safely restore the features of skin cancer patients living with nasal cartilage defects after surgery.
