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.
No survival benefit with new cancer drug
Cisplatin chemotherapy can bring lasting adverse health effects, but a new, presumably less-toxic alternative is not as effective at promoting survival, according to a large, Stanford-led trial.
Study: Anti-CD47 cancer therapy safe
An immunotherapy conceived at Stanford appeared safe in an early clinical trial. Half of the participants responded positively to the treatment, aimed at triggering macrophages to engulf cancer cells, the researchers reported.
Clue charting cancer gene regulation
Understanding when and where proteins bind to DNA may be the ticket to identifying cancer at the cellular level, according to researchers at Stanford.
Artandi to lead Stanford Cancer Institute
A cancer biologist, Artandi studies the role of telomerase in stem cells and cancer. He replaces outgoing director Beverly Mitchell.
‘Cascade’ testing identifies relatives at risk
An online effort coupled with lower costs significantly increased the proportion of cancer patients’ relatives who chose to undergo genetic testing for cancer-associated mutations in Stanford study.
