Researchers at Caltech and their colleagues have identified how at least one brain cancer adapts quickly to therapeutic drugs—and they show that by formulating the right combination of drugs, doctors could potentially overcome this resistance and stop a tumor in its tracks.

A team of researchers led by Caltech scientists has shown that nanoparticles can function to target tumors while avoiding adjacent healthy tissue in human cancer patients.

Caltech chemists develop a technique that could one day lead to early detection of tumors and less invasive testing.

A new method for detecting and inhibiting a mutation related to cancer targets the protein that exhibits the abnormality rather than the DNA that encodes it. The technique could be expanded to provide a general way of derailing other mutations only when they are actively expressed.

Caltech researchers have shown for the first time that a specific sugar, known as GlcNAc ("glick-nack"), plays a key role in helping cancer cells grow rapdily and survive under harsh conditions. The finding suggests new potential targets for therapeutic intervention.
