Investigating new strategies to target lung cancer

6th December 2021

Recent research from Barts Cancer Institute (BCI) at Queen Mary University of London has identified a novel therapeutic strategy to target lung cancer tumours that lack the gene LIMD1. We spoke with Professor Tyson V Sharp from BCI’s Centre for Cancer Cell & Molecular Biology, who led the study with Dr Sarah Martin, to find out more about the research and the significance of the findings.

Blood test predicts chemotherapy resistance in prostate cancer

11th November 2021

Research conducted at Barts Cancer Institute (BCI), Queen Mary University of London, indicates that regular blood tests before and during chemotherapy for prostate cancer can detect whether or not a patient is resistant or developing resistance to treatment with a drug called docetaxel. Ms Caitlin Davies, a PhD student at BCI, presented the findings from her PhD research at the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Festival, which is taking place from 8-12th November 2021.

Immune cells assemble – boosting the effects of chemotherapy in pancreatic cancer

9th July 2021

A new study from Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London, has demonstrated that immune cells can be stimulated to assemble into special structures within pancreatic cancer such that, at least in a pre-clinical model, researchers can demonstrate an improvement in the efficacy of chemotherapy.

Study suggests blood test could guide precision treatment in bladder cancer

16th June 2021

A blood test that can detect tiny amounts of circulating cancer DNA may be able to identify risk of cancer recurrence and guide precision treatment in bladder cancer following surgery, according to a clinical study led by Professor Tom Powles from Barts Cancer Institute at Queen Mary University of London and Barts Health NHS Trust. The findings from the study, published today in Nature, may change our understanding of cancer care following surgery.

Researchers use machine learning to rank cancer drugs in order of efficacy

25th March 2021

Researchers from Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London, have developed a machine learning algorithm that ranks drugs based on their efficacy in reducing cancer cell growth. The approach may have the potential to advance personalised therapies in the future by allowing oncologists to select the best drugs to treat individual cancer patients.
