A new protein variant underlies the ability of gastric cancers to resist an otherwise effective family of chemotherapy drugs, according to a study by a multidisciplinary team at Weill Cornell Medicine. The results suggest a treatment strategy that could improve the prognoses of many patients with cancer.
The master regulator behind the development of antibody-producing cells has been identified in a study by investigators at Weill Cornell Medicine. The findings provide new insight into the inner workings of the immune system and may help understand how tissues develop and how certain cancers arise.
Molecular characteristics detected in prostate cancers can provide clues that help predict how the disease will progress, according to new research from investigators at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian.
A team led by investigators at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian has used advanced technology and analytics to map, at single-cell resolution, the cellular landscape of diseased lung tissue in severe COVID-19 and other infectious lung diseases.
Researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine and Cornell University’s Ithaca campus have developed a new computational method for studying genetic and environmental interactions and how they influence disease risk.
Seeking to advance the scope of precision medicine, Weill Cornell Medicine, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, and Illumina, Inc. are entering into a collaboration to sequence the complete human genomes of thousands of consenting patients.
Drawing on New York’s diverse population, Weill Cornell Medicine scientists have been awarded grants from the New York Genome Center (NYGC) to study how several types of cancer differ in patients with different genetic backgrounds and point to precision treatments for groups that have been historically underrepresented in cancer research.
Localized radiation therapy against a tumor can trigger a beneficial immune response throughout the body by releasing DNA from mitochondria into the cytoplasm of tumor cells, according to new preclinical research by Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian investigators.
A new technique that involves growing brain tumors in a miniature laboratory model of the human brain recreated the complex genetics of the disease better than other approaches, according to research by investigators at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian.
A drug that blocks a male hormone receptor prolonged life by nearly a year compared with the placebo in men with nonmetastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer, according to the final analysis of the results of an international, multi-center Phase 3 clinical trial led by Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian investigators.
Physicians and scientists at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian have rapidly mobilized to confront the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing a broad spectrum of expertise on the critical issues the disease is posing to healthcare workers and public health officials.
Growth of the prostate is exceptionally common in aging men, leading to problems with urination. This overgrowth is not a tumor-like condition driven by gene mutations, and may be treatable in many cases with a class of drugs called mTOR inhibitors, according to a study led by investigators at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian.
