Commonly prescribed heartburn drug linked to pneumonia in older adults

Tue, 24 Apr 18 00:08:10 -0700

Researchers at the University of Exeter have found a statistical link between pneumonia in older people and a group of medicines commonly used to neutralise stomach acid in people with heartburn or stomach ulcers.

How colorectal cancer cells spread to the liver

Tue, 24 Apr 18 00:15:40 -0700

A new study by Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) researchers helps explain the connection between a tumor suppressor called protein kinase C zeta (PKC zeta) and metastatic colorectal cancer.

Patients in major prostate cancer study older, sicker than average patient population

Tue, 24 Apr 18 00:00:40 -0700

Researchers at Henry Ford Hospital compared the patient population of a major US prostate cancer study with patients found in three US cancer databases, ultimately finding the patients of the study to be inconsistent with the average prostate cancer patient. The researchers found the patients of the Prostate Cancer Intervention versus Observation Trial (PIVOT) to be between three and eight times more likely to die than real-world patients.

Research shows possible new target for immunotherapy for solid tumors

Tue, 24 Apr 18 00:02:50 -0700

Research from the University of Cincinnati (UC) reveals a potential new target to help T cells (white blood cells) infiltrate certain solid tumors.

Bariatric surgery successes lead to type 2 diabetes treatment

Tue, 24 Apr 18 00:05:10 -0700

Bariatric surgery has long yielded almost immediate health benefits for patients with type 2 diabetes, and new findings from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine may be the key to developing drug alternatives to surgery.

People with false-positive cancer screening results may be more likely to receive future screening

Mon, 23 Apr 18 00:01:30 -0700

An analysis of electronic medical records indicates that patients who previously had a false-positive breast or prostate cancer screening test are more likely to obtain future recommended cancer screenings.

Odd one out: Protein goes against the family to prevent cancer donate

Mon, 23 Apr 18 00:03:40 -0700

Melbourne researchers have made the surprise discovery that the 'odd one out' in a family of proteins known to drive cancer development is instead critical for preventing stomach cancers. The research team showed switching off a gene called NF-κB1 caused spontaneous development of stomach cancers, driven by chronic inflammation. The study also revealed that immunotherapy may prove to be a significant tool for treating stomach cancers that are driven by runaway inflammation, warranting further investigation.

Vitamin A derivative selectively kills liver cancer stem cells

Mon, 23 Apr 18 00:00:10 -0700

Acyclic retinoid, an artificial compound derived from vitamin A, has been found to prevent the recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common form of liver cancer. Now, in research published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists have discovered that the compound targets one class of cancer stem cells, preventing them from giving rise to new tumors.

UNC scientists create better laboratory tools to study cancer's spread

Mon, 23 Apr 18 00:02:20 -0700

In the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering, UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center's Andrew Wang, MD, and colleagues report they have developed tissue-engineered models for cancer metastases that reflect the microenvironment around tumors that promotes their growth.

Six in 7 women at high risk of breast cancer shun tamoxifen as a preventative measure

Mon, 23 Apr 18 00:03:20 -0700

Six in seven women with a family history of breast cancer opt out of taking tamoxifen as a preventative measure, according to a study funded by Cancer Research UK and published in Breast Cancer Research and Treatment today.

Correcting tiny differences in patient's position for radiotherapy could increase survival chances

Sat, 21 Apr 18 00:14:00 -0700

Very small differences in the way a patient lies during radiotherapy treatment for lung or esophageal cancer can have an impact on how likely they are to survive, according to research presented at the ESTRO 37 conference.

Skin cancers linked with reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease

Thu, 19 Apr 18 00:02:50 -0700

Previous studies have demonstrated a decreased risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD) in individuals with various cancers, including non-melanoma skin cancers (including squamous cell cancers and basal cell cancers).
