A novel biomarker could help pathologists assessing tumors during surgery

Phosphatidylinositol Acyl Chain

Researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) today report the discovery of a novel cellular biomarker that could make it comparatively easy for cancer surgeons to determine if a patient has a potentially lethal mutation in a protein called p53, the most powerful of the body’s natural tumor suppressors and often called “the guardian of the More...

A team of researchers has developed a method to grow pancreatic tissue in a three-dimensional culture system, called organoids. The scientists are able to use tissue not only from laboratory mouse models, but also from human patients. The technology promises to change the way pancreatic cancer research is done, offering a path to personalized treatment approaches in the future.
