Researchers at Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine have found a way to help more patients who want to stop smoking. The successful strategy involves using electronic medical records to help identify smokers when they visit their oncologists and offering help with quitting during such visits.
Interdisciplinary Washington University research finds patients may be OK with artificial intelligence playing a role in medical diagnostics.
New research from Washington University School of Medicine shows that blocking a major inflammatory pathway in pancreatic cancer makes the tumors sensitive to chemotherapy and a type of immunotherapy that helps the immune system’s T cells to attack cancer cells.
WashU’s Hong Chen and her team have developed a method for producing a low-cost, easy-to-use focused ultrasound device that can help open up the blood-brain barrier for non-invasive procedures and diagnostics.
An investigational cancer drug that starves tumors of their energy supply also shows evidence of improving whole body metabolism, according to a new study in mice from Washington University School of Medicine.
A new study from Washington University School of Medicine shows that treatment with an immune-boosting protein called interleukin 7 (IL-7) in combination with radiation improves survival in mice with glioblastoma.
Cancer Navigation: Charting the Path Forward for Low Income Women of Color is a practical quick-reference resource for U.S. health care providers working with marginalized women throughout the cancer continuum.
Two new studies from Washington University School of Medicine have identified a previously unrecognized pathway of cell death — named lysoptosis — and demonstrate how it could lead to new therapies for cervical cancer.
Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine have shown, in a small clinical trial, that pre-activated natural killer cells can help some children and young adults with recurrent acute myeloid leukemia and few other treatment options.
Asthma has been associated with a lowered risk of brain tumors, and researchers at Washington University School of Medicine now think they know why: Immune cells activated under conditions of asthma are less able to promote the growth of brain tumors.
