Zika virus can activate immune cells to destroy an aggressive brain cancer in mice, giving a powerful boost to an immunotherapy drug and sparking long-lasting immunological memory, according to a study from School of Medicine researchers.
The lab of Quing Zhu at the McKelvey School of Engineering has developed an imaging system that helps differentiate residual cancerous tissue from recovered healthy tissue after treatment in patients with rectal cancer, the third-most common cancer type in the U.S.
A new study from the School of Medicine shows that whole genome sequencing is at least as accurate — and often better than — conventional genetic tests that help determine the treatment for a patient’s blood cancer.
A new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the National Cancer Institute finds a possible link between slow walking pace and an increased risk of death among cancer survivors.
