Texas Researchers Receive $5.7M to Further Cancer Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Thu, Dec 14, 2017

 The state of Texas is striving to increase cancer research capabilities and opportunities with the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT). One method that CPRIT uses to increase cancer research opportunities throughout the state is through the institutes core facility support awards, which provide more funding and opportunities for researchers from different Texas institutions. Recently, researchers from Texas A&M University received a $5.7 million grant from CPRIT to expand cancer research at the university through this additional core facility funding.

$11.5M Granted to Houston Scientists for Lymphoma Treatment Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Oct 04, 2017

Lymphoma is one of the most common types of cancer, with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma making up about 4% of all cancer cases in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. Although treatment methods like chemotherapy and radiation therapy are able to treat the cancer, researchers still actively study this cancer to gain a better understanding of it to develop new targeted treatment methods. 

Researchers from the Center for Cell and Gene Therapy at Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children's Hospital and Houston Methodist Hospital have been studying new therapies for the cancer using T-cells, research that they will continue with the assistance of a new $11.5 million grant from the National Cancer Institute.

Houston Researchers Identify Genes Involved in Rare Sézary Syndrome

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Nov 16, 2015

Sézary syndrome is a rare form of T-cell lymphoma that causes different types of lesions to appear on the skin once. Very little is known about the cause of this cancer, and there are no current cures available. Researchers from Baylor College of Medicine and the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas have identified certain genes that, when mutated, appear to play a role in Sézary syndrome

TMC Researchers Test Mushroom Extract to Beat HPV

Posted by Laura Braden on Fri, Jan 16, 2015

Imagine knowing that you have a disease that could potentially lead to cancer, and having to live in a state of constant uncertainty about whether or not a tumor would develop. For people with Human Papillomavirus (HPV), the most common sexually transmitted disease in the United States, this is a reality. HPV is a serious disease that can lead to cervical cancer (along with other types). Although there is now a vaccines for the disease, there is no known cure for those already afflicted. Life science researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHealth) in Houston have recently discovered that an extract from shiitake mushrooms could potentially lead to a cure for HPV.

$5.8 Million Awarded to New Collaborative Program to Study Genes to Find New Drug Targets

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Nov 05, 2014

There are thousands of genes in the human genome that all have different purposes. At least 3,000 of these genes are known to express proteins that can be altered by different medications, however, the FDA has only approved drugs that target around 10 percent of these genes. That means that there are still thousands of genes that have not been thoroughly studied that, with the help of the right medication, could be targeted to help improve human health. The National Institutes of Health Common Fund has awarded 8 U.S. institutions $5.8 million for a new collaborative three-year program called Illuminating the Druggable Genome (IDG) that will study different genes and their potential to be modified by different medicines.

TMC Life Science Researchers Test "Chemo Brain" Drugs on Sea Snails

Posted by Laura Braden on Fri, Oct 31, 2014

After undergoing cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, many people experience a lapse in memory, known as chemo brain. Along with memory problems, chemo brain can also include having trouble concentrating, taking more time to finish simple tasks, and having trouble multi-tasking. The cause of chemo brain is currently unknown, but researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston (UTHealth) have recently discovered a possible cause of chemo brain.  (Image on right courtesy of Wikimedia).
