About 6,000 years ago, an unfortunate dog suffered from a relatively rare form of cancer. Since then, unlike any other cancer, its cancer cells were swiftly transmitted from one dog to another. Today, this age-old ailment has a name—Canine Transmissible Venereal Tumour or CTVT. In a recent study, they traced the history of CTVT to Asia, and in the process, helped understand the evolution of cancer in the long term.

A team of Indian scientists, working with collaborators from Singapore, Australia and France, have shown how clusters of circulating tumour cells—cancer cells that have sloughed off the tumour and are circulating in the blood—could help monitor the response to cancer treatments and predict a patient's survival chances using a simple blood test.
Researchers from IIT Bombay and CSIR-NCL show how gold-liposome nanohybrids can kill cancer cells.
A team of researchers from Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Basic Sciences, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, have reported a new compound that has shown promising potential to fight against cervical cancer.
Researchers at IIT Kanpur show that increasing the levels of specific microRNAs reduce the progression of prostate cancer.
Researchers from IIT Bombay have designed a protein-based carrier for delivering drugs into cancer cells.
Researchers from the National Centre for Cell Science, Pune and Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT), Bhubaneswar, have identified a novel noncoding RNA that causes cancer in mice.
Researchers from IIT Mandi, and the North Eastern Hill University, Shillong, have found molecules that could potentially stop cancer cells from flushing out drugs. This research could lead to a cure for multidrug resistance in cancer cells.
Cancer, a condition where healthy cells in the body grow out of control and instead of undergoing programmed death, keep multiplying without a check, has now become quite widespread. Most of us are familiar with the disease either through personal experience or a loved one battling it.
