Colorectal cancer

Patterns of epigenetic markers revealed by EPINUC on blood nucleosomes (bright-red dots)

If larger studies confirm the results of a Weizmann Institute innovation, diagnosing cancer may one day be as easy as taking blood

Cultured colorectal cancer cells. Top: Cells that have become resistant to certain forms of chemotherapy and continue to thrive. Bottom: The same cells, which have had the LIP gene inserted and are then treated with chemotherapy drugs

What makes cancer cells survive chemotherapy?

Normal human colonic crypts. SMOC-2 expression (red) in the colonic stem cells demonstrates that these cells are localized in the bottoms of the crypts. Bars represent 100 micrometers (left) and 50 micrometers (right)

Some tumor cells in the advanced stages of colorectal cancer adopt a...

Without the c-Kit gene, colon cancer cells grow in a disorderly, aggregated manner and are invasive (A); when c-Kit expression is restored in these cells, they revert to a more normal organization (B)

A cancer-causing gene can prevent the deadly spread of a tumor at a later point in malignancy
