Modified marrow cells may resist chemotherapy’s toxic effects

Hans-Peter Kiem and colleagues find chemo-resistant genes may enable safer, more effective treatment for brain cancer patients

May 23, 2011 | By Dean Forbes

Chemotherapy kills cancer cells, but its toxic effects on normal cells such as bone marrow and blood cells limits its use. Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center researchers have found a possible approach to reduce this toxicity: modify the bone marrow cells with a gene that makes them resistant to chemotherapy.

Mouse mammary stem cell discovery

Identification, isolation of adult cells may lead to breast tissue regeneration, new cancer drug targets

Sept. 7, 2010 | By Kristen Woodward

Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center are the first to identify and isolate adult mammary stem cells in mice. Long-term implications of this research may include the use of such cells to regenerate breast tissue, provide a better understanding of the role of adult stem cells in breast cancer development, and develop potential new targets for anti-cancer drugs.
