To build better vaccines, scientists want to know more about how our bodies make adequate numbers of effective, durable antibodies against the influenza virus.
Seven faculty members received awards for their excellence in research and teaching at Augusta University.
A key way radiation therapy and chemotherapy work is by making highly lethal double-strand breaks in the DNA of cancer cells.
Augusta University student Nitish Sood took part in a third study into states' lockdowns. This time they found states that locked down late suffered up to 25% higher penetration of the disease than those who locked down earlier in the crisis.
How long will we have to shelter in place to get COVID-19 under control? According to Augusta University student Nitish Sood and his fellow researchers, the answer is months.
Aggressive colorectal cancers set up an interactive network of checkpoints to keep the immune system at bay, scientists report.
While trying to develop a comparatively easy, inexpensive way to give physicians and their patients with bladder cancer a better idea of likely outcome and best treatment options, scientists found that sophisticated new subtyping techniques designed...
A transcription factor that aids neuron function also appears to enable a cell conversion in the prostate gland that can make an already recurrent cancer even more deadly, scientists say.
An enzyme induced by stress to help reduce production of damaging free radicals is also used by liver cancer to regulate two major cell proliferation pathways that enable the cancer to thrive, scientists report.
MCG scientists looking at body's natural checkpoint, the enzyme CD73, and how it may convert the cell fuel that normally promotes our immune system to attack head and neck cancer cells into something that instead inhibits that attack.
MCG scientists hope non-invasive and better tests that measure a gene variant commonly found in bladder cancer could help improve patient outcomes.
MCG scientists now know how the immune system rids the body of tumor cells, helping prevent cancer metastasis.
Our bodies are continuously concocting specific antibodies to thwart invaders like a virus or even pollen, and scientists have new information about how the essential production gets fired up and keeps up.
Faculty at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University were recognized with Exemplary Teaching Awards for their contributions to students and residents at the state’s public medical school.
Lingering inflammation in the colon is a known risk factor for colorectal cancer, and now scientists report one way it resets the stage to enable this common and often deadly cancer.
Dr. Vinata B. Lokeshwar, chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, is the recipient of the 2018 Distinguished Service Award from the Society for Basic Urological Research.
A member of a protein family known for protecting our cells also protects cancer cells in aggressive, metastatic breast cancer, scientists report.
A team of three Georgia Cancer Center researchers is taking the next step towards finding a future treatment option for colorectal cancer, the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths.
