Tumors can harness healthy white blood cells to enhance their own growth and suppress attacks by the immune system. St. Jude researchers have discovered that the immune suppression is primarily the work of cells called monocytes.
A new anti-malarial drug candidate triggers the immune system to rapidly destroy red blood cells infected by malaria parasites. Clinical trials are being planned to test its safety in humans.
The Thanksgiving season and the month of November is a special time for Rebecca Rogers of the St. Jude Pathology Department. A former St. Jude patient, Rebecca discusses how St. Jude has allowed her to be thankful for the important anniversaries in her life.
Gene therapy developed at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, University College London and the Royal Free Hospital has transformed life for 10 men with severe hemophilia B.
For childhood cancer survivors, regular heart checkups can save lives. Yet despite the potential benefits, many survivors fail to get recommended checkups on schedule.
Scientists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital have discovered a promising new triple-drug therapy for Ewing sarcoma, a cancer of the bone and soft tissue.
Childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) treatment is one of the 20th Century’s great cancer success stories. Today more than 90 percent of children with ALL become long-term survivors, compared to just 4 percent in 1962 when St. Jude opened its doors.
Children with cancer are tougher than you might assume.
At St. Jude, central lines are everybody’s business.
Adult survivors of childhood cancer who don’t get enough exercise and eat an unhealthy diet more than double their chances of developing metabolic syndrome.
Just as accessories like boots and gloves help humans adapt to their environment, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital scientists have discovered a mechanism that serves as an “on” switch for the machinery that helps proteins accessorize.
A missing gene and the resulting slow connection between brain structures may leave individuals vulnerable to the “voices” that are a common symptom of schizophrenia.
My 11-year-old daughter, Alyssa, is a cancer survivor. As we approach the two-year mark from when we first heard the words, “Your child has melanoma,” I think about how those four words have forever changed our family. We are different. Alyssa is different.
Cells may be small, but they are home to plenty of mystery and drama. Take the enzyme known as RIPK1. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital scientists have just determined that after birth, RIPK1 functions like an umpire in cells, making the tough calls necessary to balance competing signals that determine if cells live or die.
DNA may be the cornerstone of life, but the molecule breaks all the time. To read DNA’s code or make more DNA, cells routinely nick and unwind the famous double helix using specialized enzymes. Free radicals and other stresses can also break DNA.
What are the risks? How can we counteract them?
St. Jude scientists develop a new treatment strategy that offers hope to children and adults with a form of high-risk leukemia.
Scientists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital have more evidence that age matters when it comes to the devastating brain tumors called high-grade gliomas (HGGs).
For a few hours last night, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital teen patients forgot about doctors’ appointments and instead danced, laughed and reveled at prom.
Children with an aggressive form of the most common childhood brain tumor, medulloblastoma, face a tough prognosis. Effective treatments are limited, and long-term survival is poor. But new hope may be offered by a discovery from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital involving a pair of drugs used to treat adult cancers.
The latest results from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study reinforce the importance of lifelong health care for adult survivors of childhood cancer. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital investigators led the study.
Inspired by their St. Jude caregivers, seven former patients help others by pursuing careers in health care.
St. Jude researchers find clues to preventing hearing loss and other side effects of chemotherapy.
“Our family owes everything to St. Jude. There is no doubt that if it weren’t for St. Jude, we would have buried our kids by now. No doubt.”
A hunt through billions of pieces of genetic information uncovers new clues on treatments for childhood ependymoma.
We depend on the disease-fighting immune system to protect us from flu infections or to help us recover if we catch the virus. Now there is evidence the immune system can also help to predict which flu patients will develop severe symptoms and wind up in the hospital.
When the doctors said that Christopher was cancer-free, his mother and her fiancé decided to get married at St. Jude, surrounded by their new family.
Chemo can make foods taste yucky. St. Jude staff have created special gummies that are delicious, fun and (don’t tell the kids) nutritious.
National statistics show that African-American and Hispanic children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) are less likely than white children to survive their disease. But at St. Jude, patients of all races and ethnic backgrounds have the same high rates of survival.
ALS remains incurable, but new insight into its causes gives reason to hope. A research team led by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital revealed that mutations causing ALS have an unexpected toxic effect in human nerve cells.
On February 4, 1962, the dream of one young entertainer with a heart for hopeless causes became a reality with the opening of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Antibiotic resistance is a growing global concern, especially in bacteria that cause serious diseases, such as tuberculosis (TB). TB kills 1.3 million people a year, and extremely drug-resistant TB has been reported in dozens of countries.
The Country Cares for St. Jude Kids program began in 1989, after Randy Owen, lead singer of the music group Alabama, met St. Jude founder Danny Thomas.
Despite having life-threatening illnesses, children and teens with cancer were no more likely than their healthy peers to report symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Accomplishments at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since last World Cancer Day are giving us new insights into the origins and possible treatment of the many and varied cancer subtypes and include published discoveries in genomics, pharmacogenomics, immunology and long-term survivorship.
Hospital staff help teens embrace and enhance their talents.
Scientists unearth genes driving a childhood brain tumor.
Patients with HIV ensure their voices are heard.
Blood contains a large number of T cells, which act like soldiers that defend against infections and other invaders. When T cells detect a threat, they “wake up” and start multiplying into an army to destroy it. How T cells are triggered to multiply has been largely a mystery.
Even cancer cells can feel stress. In fact, it can kill them. According to new research led by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, drugs that enhance a process called oxidative stress may offer a new way to combat an aggressive soft tissue tumor called rhabdomyosarcoma.
One St. Jude program offers caregivers and patients a break.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital scientists have made a surprising connection between a rare disorder that strikes young people and Alzheimer’s disease, a disease that usually affects older people.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital scientists warn the flu virus that caused a pandemic in the 1950s remains a threat today. The risk is greatest for those under age 50; this group lacks immunity to the virus.
