Potential drug target may nip cancer in the bud
12 November 2013
Scientists at A*STAR have discovered an enzyme, Wip1 phosphatase, as a potential target to weed out the progression of cancer. Although studies in the past have revealed that this enzyme plays a critical role in regulating the budding of tumours, scientists have for the first time unearthed a mechanism for its mode of action.

NUH testing a drug delivery method that may help patients in late stage
When cancer spreads into the lining of the abdomen, patients unusualy have fewer than six months to live, even with chemotherapy. But a new way of delivering anti-cancer drugs, new being tested at National University Hospital (NUH), could offer hope even to patients with final-stage gastric cancer.
It involves sending the chemotherapy drug straight into the abdominal cavity via a tube inserted in the body. This is much like how dialysis fluid is fed into the abdomen of kidney patients, also using a tube.

New battle tactic in breast cancer warLocal study finds taking drug before chemotherapy shrinks tumours more
09 August 2012
A NEW treatment could offer hope for breast cancer patients whose tumours remain too large to remove via surgery despite undergoing chemotherapy. Taking a drug called sunitinib one week before chemotherapy helps shrink the tumours so they get a better shot at going under the knife safely if the need arises, doctors at the National University Cancer Institute have found.
