Preventing metastasis: An antibody with therapeutic potential

A receptor in the cell layer that lines the blood vessels from the inside stimulates both the formation of new blood vessels in tumors and metastasis. Scientists at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg (DKFZ) and ...

Alzheimer's risk genes converge on microglia

DNA determines a large part of the risk for Alzheimer's disease, but it remained unclear how many genetic risk factors contribute to disease. A team led by Prof. Bart De Strooper (VIB-KU Leuven) and Dr. Mark Fiers now show ...

Tracking down 'illegal parkers' in cancer cells

Squamous cell carcinoma is a very unusual type of cancer. It occurs in many tissues—for example in the lungs, esophagus, pancreas, throat and pharynx, and on the skin. Due to the many mutations in this type of cancer, treatment ...
