Researchers develop virus-based treatment platform to fight pancreatic cancer

27th January 2021

Researchers from Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London, and Zhengzhou University have developed a powerful therapeutic platform that uses a modified virus for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. By using the virus in combination with other drugs, the treatment significantly extended survival in preclinical models of pancreatic cancer.

Chromosomal instability in ovarian cancer

26th November 2020

We spoke with Dr Sarah McClelland and senior postdoctoral researcher in her group, Dr Nadeem Shaikh, about the team’s most recent paper, published in Cancer Research, which set out to explore the mechanisms of chromosomal instability in high-grade serous ovarian carcinoma – the most common type of ovarian cancer. The study sheds light on how these mechanisms may be able to be targeted to overcome treatment resistance in this cancer type.
