  • In 2003, researchers at the University of Milan in Naples, Italy, reported that non-psychoactive compounds in marijuana inhibited the growth of glioma cells in a dose dependent manner and selectively targeted and killed malignant cancer cells. (norml.org)
  • The following year, researchers reported in the journal of the American Association for Cancer Research that marijuana's constituents inhibited the spread of brain cancer in human tumor biopsies. (norml.org)
  • A malignant tumor is by definition a cancer. (sharecare.com)
  • Oral cavity cancer treatment, particularly for advanced tumors (because of radical surgery), destroys the integrity of this area. (medscape.com)
  • A protein that governs development of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) also inhibits the growth and spread of malignant melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer, Northwestern University researchers have discovered. (innovations-report.com)
  • However, when the group exposed metastatic tumor cells to the microenvironment of hESCs containing Lefty, they witnessed dramatically reduced Nodal expression (production) in these cancer cells together with decreased tumor cell growth and invasiveness and an increase in apoptosis, or programmed cell suicide. (innovations-report.com)
  • Although exposure to a hESC microenvironment inhibited Nodal expression and tumor growth in both metastatic melanoma and breast cancer cells, the breast cancer cells underwent more complex reprogramming. (innovations-report.com)
  • Yet, despite the inherent differences between melanoma cells and breast cancer cells, these divergent tumor types both underwent cell suicide following exposure to the hESC microenvironment. (innovations-report.com)
  • Further, the tumor suppressive effects of the hECs microenvironment, by neutralizing the expression of Nodal in aggressive tumor cells, provide previously unexplored novel therapeutic modalities for cancer treatment," Hendrix said. (innovations-report.com)
  • In summary, therapy for laryngeal cancer is predicated on the tumor type and staging, patient's wishes and compliance, and the surgeon's and institution's preferences and experience. (medscape.com)
  • Is a seborrheic keratosis is a malignant skin cancer tumor or benign? (healthtap.com)
  • Fast neutron therapy has been applied to the treatment of cancer of the head and the neck, prostatic cancer, osteosarcoma, and malignant melanoma, and the basic treatment schedule for this therapy for them has been almost established. (osti.gov)
  • tumours
  • To establish whether anaesthetic technique ( general anaesthesia versus regional anaesthesia or a combination of the two techniques) influences the long-term prognosis for individuals with malignant tumours. (cochrane.org)
  • malignancy
  • Therefore, the patient and clinician often ignore or minimize the initial presentation of these tumors and treat early-stage malignancy as a benign sinonasal disorder. (medscape.com)
  • If however, a second peak appears within the range of the red color band of the graphic presentation it is a characteristic peak of malignancy, indicating the existence of a malignant tumor. (google.es)
  • surgically
  • Often, these tumors can be removed surgically and usually do not recur. (sharecare.com)
  • Xgeva has been approved in cases where the tumor can't be surgically removed, or might lead to a severe outcome such as loss of a limb, the agency said. (medicalxpress.com)
  • behavior
  • Occasionally, this prediction is confounded by a marked discrepancy between the morphologic appearance of a tumor and its behavior: An innocent face may mask an ugly nature. (humpath.com)
  • in general, there are morphologic criteria by which benign and malignant tumors can be differentiated, and the behavior of the tumors can be predicted by these criteria. (humpath.com)
  • Auersperg, N. Histogenetic behavior of tumors. (springer.com)
  • rarely
  • Tumors rarely appear in the posterior pharyngeal wall or postcricoid region without also involving the pyriform sinus. (medscape.com)
  • cell growth
  • That year, a research team at the Medical College of Virginia (acting at the behest of the federal government) discovered that cannabis inhibited malignant tumor cell growth in culture and in mice. (norml.org)
