Award-winning researchers reveal potential new role for Glivec Geneva, Switzerland: Imatinib – or Glivec as it also known – looks as if an effective treatment be an effective treatment for yet another type of cancer has become.
With a translocation t had a partial response to imatinib but the disease has progressed after seven months of treatment. The other had no translocation and not imatinib imatinib. McArthur explains We are confident of the tumors DFSP t have. It sure sure, based on only one case, the very high and where there is also the possibility that it does not have a true DFSP, but our patient respond respond to imatinib without translocation. Nevertheless, our data support the use of imatinib, where t is recognized , although our not not make make any definite statements about tumors with other molecular abnormalities.
Said Professor Cvitkovic: ‘These results are a perfect match FNAB objectives supporting research using tissue sample for the molecular analysis of biopsy select precisely the patients who could benefit from targeted therapeutics.A new way of. Virus is be manipulated to be to microRNAs, which in certain cell types. With this new form of targeting, researchers redirected a virus normally of a fatal muscle infection just seen cancerous cells. The laboratory mice, which engineered virus were welcomed cured of established tumors and has suffered no ill effects. Majority of viruses infect various cell types which leads to the array of a viral infection a viral infection – – significance of research. As viruses being developed for use as vaccines, cancer therapeutics and gene therapy vectors, researchers want to limiting and redirect the kind of cells them infection as the additional safety measures against disease.
