Cancer drugs may help the liver recover from common painkiller overdoses

In mice given a toxic dose of acetaminophen, an anticancer medication kept liver cells alive Experimental anticancer drugs may help protect against liver damage caused by acetaminophen overdoses. In mice poisoned with the common painkiller, the drugs prevented liver cells from entering a sort of pre-death state known as senescence. The drugs also widened the treatment window: […]

First Study On Physical Properties Of Giant Cancer Cells May Inform New Treatments

Polyploidal cancer cells—cells that have more than two copies of each chromosome—are much larger than most other cancer cells, are resistant to chemotherapy and radiation treatments and are associated with disease relapse. A new study by Brown University researchers is the first to reveal key physical properties of these “giant” cancer cells. The research, published Aug. 9 […]

Researchers build up World’s Fastest Nanomechanical Rotor

At more than 60 billion revolutions per minute, a nanomechanical rotor developed by Purdue University researcher Tongcang Li and co-authors is more than 100,000 times faster than a high-speed dental drill. Dr. Li and his colleagues from Peking University, Tsinghua University, Collaborative Innovation Center of Quantum Matter and Sandia National Laboratories synthesized a tiny dumbbell […]
