July 18, 2018 A new International Journal of Cancer study reveals that eating an early supper and having a long interval between the last meal and sleep are associated with lower breast and prostate cancer risks. The study included 621 cases of prostate and 1205 of breast cancer with 872 male and 1321 female population […]Continue Reading ...
July 20, 2018 University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center scientists have uncovered a potential therapeutic target for kidney cancers that have a common genetic change. Scientists have known this genetic change can lead to an overabundance of blood vessels, which help feed nutrients to the tumors. Their latest finding shows a potential new […]Continue Reading ...
July 19, 2018 Bottom Line: Analysis of cancer death data from 2008-2014 in New York state revealed high cancer mortality rates among U.S.-born blacks and Puerto Ricans and relatively low cancer mortality rates among Hispanic South Americans and Asians. Journal in Which the Study was Published: Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the […]Continue Reading ...
July 19, 2018 Women who eat a high amount of fruits and vegetables each day may have a lower risk of breast cancer, especially of aggressive tumors, than those who eat fewer fruits and vegetables, according to a new study led by researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. In their findings, cruciferous […]Continue Reading ...
July 18, 2018 Research led by Suresh Alahari, PhD, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine, has shown for the first time that a tiny piece of RNA deregulates energy metabolism, an emerging hallmark of cancer. The finding identifies a new target for therapeutic intervention in breast cancer. […]Continue Reading ...
July 19, 2018 Scientists have made a major discovery about how cells repair broken strands of DNA that could have huge implications for the treatment of cancer. Their study, published in Nature today (Wednesday), uncovered a brand new protein complex in cells that shields broken DNA ends and controls the way in which it is […]Continue Reading ...
July 19, 2018 Alzheimer’s protease curates neuron surfaces The brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease contain many protein aggregates outside of cells, known as plaques. These are mainly made of the peptide amyloid-beta, which is released from the plasma membrane when the protease BACE1 cleaves its membrane-anchored precursor protein. Because amyloid-beta cannot be produced without […]Continue Reading ...
July 18, 2018 Researchers at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) have identified a new potential target protein (c-Cbl) they believe can help further the understanding of colon cancer and ultimately survival of patients with the disease. They found colon cancer patients with high levels of c-Cbl lived longer than those with low c-Cbl. Even […]Continue Reading ...
July 20, 2018 Researchers at the University of Oulu in Finland have discovered novel genes and mechanisms that can explain how a genomic variant in a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs11672691 influences prostate cancer aggressiveness. Their findings also suggest ways to improve risk stratification and clinical treatment for advanced prostate cancer. The study is published […]Continue Reading ...
July 18, 2018 High bitter-taste sensitivity is associated with a significantly increased risk of cancer in older British women, according to researchers who conducted a unique study of 5,500 women whose diet, lifestyle and health has been tracked for about 20 years.

During that same period, there was a drop in […]Continue Reading ...
By Dr Ananya Mandal, MDJuly 18, 2018 West Australian researchers from Edith Cowan University have managed to develop a blood test that is capable of diagnosing melanomas before they can spread to other parts of the body. The study titled, “A diagnostic autoantibody signature for primary cutaneous melanoma,” was published in the latest issue of […]Continue Reading ...
July 18, 2018 Previous research has shown that cannabinoids can help lessen side effects of anti-cancer therapies. Now a new British Journal of Pharmacology review has examined their potential for the direct treatment of cancer. Phytocannabinoids are the most notable type of cannabinoid, and they occur naturally in the cannabis plant. Studies have shown that […]Continue Reading ...
July 16, 2018 The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is funding the research of a University of Akron (UA) scientist that could lead to more effective cancer treatment. Dr. Hossein Tavana and students in his Tissue Engineering Microtechnologies lab recently developed and patented a method to make 3D cultures of clustered cancer cells (called spheroids) […]Continue Reading ...
