Immune cells become cancer killers
Neutrophils often suppress the immune system’s response to cancer, but when activated, they eliminate several types of tumors in laboratory mice, a study led by Stanford Medicine has found.
Stanford and Invus collaborate
The collaboration will enable the development of medications to treat a type of brain cancer.
Shoshana Levy dies
Shoshana Levy discovered a family of molecules called tetraspanins, launching a new field of cancer research. She was an active researcher, collaborator and mentor at Stanford Medicine for nearly three decades.
Possible new way to kill cancer cells
After finding long, repetitive sequences in the genomes of seven kinds of cancer, researchers at Stanford Medicine and their colleagues developed a molecule that curbed their production.
Hepatitis C treatment low
Antiviral medicine eliminates hepatitis C in 97% of patients, but Stanford Medicine researchers and colleagues find that many don’t receive the treatment.
New National Academy of Medicine members
Grace Lee, Crystal Mackall, Paul Mischel, Kari Nadeau, Anthony Oro and Krishna Shenoy are among the 100 members elected this year to the National Academy of Medicine.
Improving end-of-life care for kids
Research into medical decisions for children with terminal illnesses can be improved by sensitively tapping the expertise of families who have lost a child, according to Stanford Medicine experts.
Bertozzi research advances medicine
Bertozzi’s chemistry expertise advances research into cancer immunotherapies, tumor biology and COVID-19.
Hodgkin lymphoma pioneer Rosenberg dies
Rosenberg combined radiation and chemotherapy to treat Hodgkin lymphoma, revolutionizing cancer care. He taught at Stanford Medicine for more than 50 years.
Cancer tolerated by immune system
Cancer cells in the lymph nodes trick the immune system into tolerating their presence and welcoming metastasis, a pair of Stanford studies find. Blocking this process could stop cancer’s spread.
