Roundup cancer trial ends with $2 billion verdict against Monsanto

It hasn't been a good year for the makers of Roundup weed killer. Back in March, a man was awarded an $80 million verdict after a jury decided that Monsanto's herbicide contributed to his positive diagnosis for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. That was just the latest in a string of rulings in favor of individuals who believe glyphosate, the active ingredient in the weed killer, gave them cancer, but it doesn't hold a candle to the massive verdict that was just handed down in California.T...

Researchers identify important signaling molecule in the biology of Hodgkin's lymphoma

Although classical Hodgkin's lymphoma is generally easily treatable today, many aspects of the disease still remain a mystery.

Why Hodgkin's lymphoma cells grow uncontrollably

Although classical Hodgkin's lymphoma is generally easily treatable today, many aspects of the disease still remain a mystery. A team at the Max Delbrück Center led by Professor Claus Scheidereit has now identified an important signaling molecule in the biology of this lymphoma: LTA. It helps the cancer to grow unimpeded - for example, by activating genes for immune checkpoint ligands that protect tumor cells from the body's built-in defense system.

New hope for cancer patients: Studies identity whether you will respond to chemotherapy or not

Using radiomics, two new studies identified whether patients would respond to chemotherapy or not.This breakthrough occurred by investigating tissue around the tumor, instead of only looking at the tumor itself. This could lead to the cessation of much suffering for patients that will not respond to chemo. None We can thank warfare for one of the most important medical discoveries of the 20th century.

CD30: From witness to culprit

Cells of certain blood cancers such as Hodgkin's lymphoma carry the protein CD30 on their surface. The molecule is not only an indicator of a few cancers of the immune system but also increases the risk of their occurrence, according to a report in the journal Blood by researchers of the Helmholtz Zentrum München. A greatly increased number of CD30-bearing cells are produced after certain viral infections, e.g. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection, and in autoimmune diseases.

A new treatment could deal '1, 2 punch' to Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and other incurable cancers

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) is a unique cancer that originates in the white blood cells of the human bone marrow. It is the seventh most common cancer in the United States and an estimated 75,000 cases are diagnosed each year. Researchers at Mount Sinai in New York have used a form of NHL to develop a novel approach to cancer immunotherapy, injecting immune stimulants directly into a tumor to teach the immune system to destroy it and other tumor cells throughout the body, Dr. Joshua Brody, di...

Researchers discover how tumor-killing immune cells attack lymphomas in living mice

In a study that will be published April 1 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, researchers from the Institut Pasteur and INSERM reveal that chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells can induce tumor regression by directly targeting and killing cancer cells, uncovering new details of how these immune cells work and how their effectiveness could be improved in the treatment of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and other B cell cancers.
