(University of Akron) Researchers will model response of colon cancer cells to anticancer drugs using 3D cultures. By exploring specific mechanisms of a cancer cell's feedback signaling that renders tumors non-responsive, they can design treatment strategies that effectively block tumor growth with significantly reduced toxicity to normal cells.

Colon or Colorectal cancer is the growth of malignant polyps on the colon, bowel, anus and rectum. Growths in these locations can be benign, and removed by colonoscopy, but they have a risk of becoming malignant. About 10 per cent of bowel cancer...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
