Oncology & Cancer

Dozens of non-oncology drugs can kill cancer cells

Drugs for diabetes, inflammation, alcoholism—and even for treating arthritis in dogs—can also kill cancer cells in the lab, according to a study by scientists at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and Dana-Farber ...

New diagnostic approach rapidly identifies the right antibiotics

Patients with bacterial infections who are promptly diagnosed and treated with the most effective antibiotic fare better than those who wait. But current methods of identifying which drug will kill the pathogen take days ...

New genomic regions linked to common vascular disorder

Blood clotting in veins, a disorder called venous thromboembolism (VTE), is a common vascular disease like heart attack and stroke, but hasn't been as well studied. Genetics are known to be involved, but only about a dozen ...

Mathematical model finds the cancer mutations that matter

Researchers have generated a long list of genetic mutations linked to cancer, but sorting out which ones really drive tumors to grow uncontrollably and which ones don't has been a challenge. A new mathematical model developed ...

DNA sequencing study suggests common genetic basis for epilepsy

Epilepsy is one of the most widespread neurological disorders, but relatively little is known about the genes involved in the more common types. By examining all the genes of over 17,000 people, an international research ...

Reinvigorating the clinical drug pipeline for TB

A research team led by scientists from the Broad Institute has uncovered a novel group of chemical inhibitors that can kill the bacteria that causes tuberculosis (TB). Importantly, these chemical compounds take aim at a previously ...
