Pancreatic cancer 'time machine’ exposes plot twist in cell growth and invasion

February 14, 2020

Pancreatic cancer has one of the worst survival rates among cancers. Patients can expect as low as a 9% chance to live for at least five years after being diagnosed. Going back in time to observe how cells with key gene mutations interact and become invasive would help researchers better understand how the cancer starts and identify it sooner.

BMS Scholar Helps Lead Team Studying Worldwide Patented Innovations Available for Gene Therapy Treatment

February 14, 2020

The global gene therapy market is expected to reach $13 billion by 2024 as new treatment options target cancers and other diseases. Dr. Marxa Figueiredo, associate professor of basic medical sciences in the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine, has helped lead a team of scientists from Purdue and other research institutions around the world who came together to better understand the growing number of worldwide patented innovations available for gene therapy treatment.

New technology for pathogen detection driven by lasers

February 14, 2020

Researchers at Purdue University have been working to develop new technologies to help stop the spread of foodborne illnesses, which kill 3,000 people a year, by detecting them more efficiently. They have developed a lanthanide-based assay coupled with a laser that can be used to detect toxins and pathogenic E. coli in food samples, water and a variety of industrial materials.

Scientists make startling discovery by using 'time machine' to study pancreatic cancer

February 14, 2020

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in people. It has one of the lowest survival rates and the life-expectancy post-diagnosis is one of the lowest among all forms of cancers. Therefore, tracing its development back in time can help in understanding how cancerous cells with specific mutations interact and invade, and enable better identification and treatment. However, how can one go back in time to study this? What will they find?
