New approach to treating cancer with therapeutic short interfering RNA (siRNA) delivered by nanohydrogel nanoparticles

A novel targeted therapy using nanoparticles has enabled researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology to purge ovarian tumors in limited, in vivo tests in mice. "The dramatic effect we see is the massive reduction or complete eradication of the tumor, when the 'nanohydrogel' treatment is given in combination with existing chemotherapy," said chief researcher … Continue reading New approach to treating cancer with therapeutic short interfering RNA (siRNA) delivered by nanohydrogel nanoparticles

Onionin A, natural compound from onions found effective against Epithelial Ovarian Cancer

Research from Kumamoto University, Japan has found that a natural compound isolated from onions, onionin A (ONA), has several anti-ovarian cancer properties. This discovery is a result of research on the effects of onionin A on a preclinical model of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) both in vivo and in vitro. This research comes from the … Continue reading Onionin A, natural compound from onions found effective against Epithelial Ovarian Cancer
