Math can predict how cancer cells evolve

Tue, 16 Jan 18 00:02:10 -0800

Applied mathematics can be a powerful tool in helping predict the genesis and evolution of different types of cancers, a study from the University of Waterloo has found.



Researchers develop a remote-controlled cancer immunotherapy system

Mon, 15 Jan 18 00:00:20 -0800

A team of researchers has developed an ultrasound-based system that can non-invasively and remotely control genetic processes in live immune T cells so that they recognize and kill cancer cells.



NHS bowel scope uptake boosted by a fifth when patients sent reassuring reminders

Sun, 14 Jan 18 00:12:00 -0800

Bowel scope screening increased by more than a fifth (21.5 percent) when people were sent additional reminders with a leaflet that addressed common concerns, according to a new study funded by Cancer Research UK.



New epidemiological study finds no connection between cases of cancer and use of plant protection products containing glyphosate

Fri, 12 Jan 18 00:07:30 -0800

BfR Communication No. 036/2017 from 22 December 2017 Epidemiological studies are a central element of public discussion in the debate surrounding the carcinogenic potential of glyphosate. A publication that appeared in the USA in November examined whether there is a possible connection between the use of glyphosate containing plant protection products and cases of cancer among people who work in agriculture using a significantly broader data base.



Scleroderma study: Hope for a longer life for patients with rare autoimmune disorder

Fri, 12 Jan 18 00:08:40 -0800

The approach could represent the first new treatment to improve survival in patients with severe scleroderma in more than four decades.



Cancer's gene-determined 'immune landscape' dictates progression of prostate tumors

Fri, 12 Jan 18 00:09:20 -0800

The field of immunotherapy -- the harnessing of patients' own immune systems to fend off cancer -- is revolutionizing cancer treatment today. However, clinical trials often show marked improvements in only small subsets of patients, suggesting that as-yet unidentified variations among tumors result in distinct paths of disease progression and response to therapy.



Cell biology: Positioning the cleavage furrow

Thu, 11 Jan 18 00:03:00 -0800

Researchers from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have identified a signaling pathway that restricts cleavage furrow formation to the mid-plane of the cell.



New biomarkers for colorectal cancer

Thu, 11 Jan 18 00:04:30 -0800

Researchers from the University of Luxembourg found a new biomarker for colorectal cancer (CRC) that might improve therapy and survival rates of patients. Biomarkers are measurable biological indicators for a specific disease, such as changes in the amounts of certain proteins that occur in combination with certain illnesses. Such biomarkers help physicians to diagnose a condition, identify the disease stage, and determine a patient's risk for recurrence of the disease. This supports the doctor in choosing the best-fitting treatment plan.



Education and income determine whether women participate in cervical screening

Thu, 11 Jan 18 00:05:30 -0800

The impression that foreign-born women in Sweden more often are excluded from gynecological cancer screening needs to be reconsidered. A study from Sahlgrenska Academy, published in the journal PLOS One, makes it clear that foreign-born women participate to the same extent as women born in Sweden with a corresponding educational level and income.



New AI technology significantly improves human kidney analysis

Thu, 11 Jan 18 00:06:50 -0800

The ability to quantify the extent of kidney damage and predict the life remaining in the kidney, using an image obtained at the time when a patient visits the hospital for a kidney biopsy, now is possible using a computer model based on artificial intelligence (AI).



Estrogen-mimicking compounds in foods may reduce effectiveness of breast cancer treatment

Thu, 11 Jan 18 00:10:10 -0800

Scientists from The Scripps Research Institute have discovered that two estrogen-mimicking compounds found in many foods appear to potently reverse the effects of palbociclib/letrozole, a popular drug combination for treating breast cancer.



NIH researchers report first 3-D structure of DHHC enzymes

Thu, 11 Jan 18 00:15:40 -0800

The first three-dimensional structure of DHHC proteins -- enzymes involved in many cellular processes, including cancer -- explains how they function and may offer a blueprint for designing therapeutic drugs.



Researchers demonstrate RAS dimers are essential for cancer

Thu, 11 Jan 18 00:13:40 -0800

Researchers at UT Southwestern's Simmons Cancer Center have shown that RAS molecules act in pairs, known as dimers, to cause cancer, findings that could help guide them to a treatment.



Certain factors may predict lung cancer patients' response to chemotherapy

Wed, 10 Jan 18 00:14:20 -0800

In a retrospective analysis of 73 lung squamous cell carcinoma patients treated with the chemotherapy regimen of gemcitabine plus cisplatin, higher body mass index and younger age were linked with longer progression-free survival, the length of time that a patient lives with cancer but it does not get worse. Patients with better response to treatment and higher body mass index had longer overall survival in the Thoracic Cancer analysis.



Chemoradiation in elderly patients with stage III NSCLC improves overall survival

Wed, 10 Jan 18 00:00:40 -0800

Elderly patients with stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) showed improved overall survival when treated with chemoradiation compared to definitive radiation alone.



New research improves our understanding of cancer cell regulation

Wed, 10 Jan 18 00:05:10 -0800

New research measures how changes in kinase activity can influence the growth, development and regulation of cancer cells. They measure kinase network rewiring that occurs in cancer patients so that they can identify new strategies for killing cancer cells.
