The Division of Oncology is dedicated to developing multidisciplinary and lifesaving treatments for people worldwide who are affected by cancer. At the forefront of ground breaking treatments for cancer, our faculty is involved in more than 100 clinical trials to develop diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to various types of cancer.
Predicting success of lung cancer drug
With the help of a new radioactive tracer, doctors can predict with more than 80 percent accuracy how well a widely-used lung cancer drug will combat tumors, according to researchers at Stanford.
Misbehaving cells predict relapse in leukemia
Analyzing individual cancer cells has enabled Stanford researchers to identify the small population of cells that spur relapse in some children with leukemia.
Reducing side effects of a cancer therapy
Stanford scientists created an odd couple: a modified version of an immune-signaling protein and a coordinately modified receptor for this protein. The two bind only to each other, easing an advanced anti-cancer therapy’s side effects.
IPS cells slow tumor growth in mice
Priming the immune system with induced pluripotent stem cells prevented or slowed the development of cancer in mice, Stanford researchers found.
Potential skin cancer treatment
Stanford researchers have learned how basal cell carcinoma evades drug treatment without mutating. The researchers found possible drug targets that may allow for more personalized treatment of this common skin cancer.
