An Ontario clinical study that shows adding PET imaging to conventional CT imaging to stage locally advanced cervix cancer can change treatment means newly diagnosed women in this province may also receive PET imaging. The findings are published online today by JAMA Network Open. Co-principal investigators Dr. Anthony Fyles, radiation oncologist at Princess Margaret Cancer […]Continue Reading ...
BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Sept. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cyclacel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:CYCC, Nasdaq:CYCCP) (“Cyclacel” or the “Company”), a biopharmaceutical company developing innovative medicines based on cancer biology, announced the initiation of a Phase 1b/2 investigator-sponsored clinical trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of sapacitabine in combination with olaparib in patients with BRCA mutant […]Continue Reading ...
Biomedical scientists at the University of Salford found that sugars from the common cockle (Cerastoderma edule) were approximately as effective as some standard chemotherapy drugs at relative lower dosage. And they say ‘cockle-chemo’ could be particularly suitable for children as it is potentially less toxic and less likely to cause unhealthy side-effects. Publishing in the […]Continue Reading ...
Pancreatic cancer is currently very difficult to detect while it is still resectable. A new blood test developed by researchers at Lund University in Sweden, Herlev Hospital, Knight Cancer Center and Immunovia AB, can detect pancreatic cancer in the very earliest stages of the disease. The results have been published in the Journal of Clinical […]Continue Reading ...
A research team at the University of Turku in Finland discovered a link between the interplay of certain simultaneously occurring genetic changes in the HOXB13 and CIP2A genes, aggressiveness of prostate cancer, high risk of developing the disease, and poorer survival rates of patients. Prostate cancer is a major challenge in health care with over […]Continue Reading ...
A new three-year grant totaling nearly $1 million from the U.S. Department of Defense will fund University of Illinois at Chicago research on the gene SELENOF and its role in the development of prostate cancer among black men. White men accounted for about 106 new cases of prostate cancer per 100,000 men for the years […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers from the University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center estimate that screening for and treating prostate cancer in men aged 70 years or older, which is not recommended by national guidelines, cost Medicare more than $1.2 billion over a three year period for each group of men diagnosed in the United States each […]Continue Reading ...
Cancer cell during cell division. Credit: National Institutes of Health A retrospective study led by researchers at Baylor College of Medicine and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Public Health found that survivors of HPV-associated cancers have a high incidence of developing second HPV-related cancers. Their findings, which were […]Continue Reading ...
An online initiative offering low-cost genetic testing to relatives of people with genetic mutations that increase their risk of cancer encourages the “cascade” testing that can help to identify healthy people at risk of the disease, according to a new study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Color, a health services […]Continue Reading ...
A new computer program can analyze images of patients’ lung tumors, specify cancer types, and even identify altered genes driving abnormal cell growth, a new study shows. Led by researchers at NYU School of Medicine and published online in Nature Medicine, the study found that a type of artificial intelligence (AI), or “machine learning” program, […]Continue Reading ...
Killer T cells surround a cancer cell. Credit: NIH Scientists at the VIB-UGent Center for Medical Biotechnology have taken important steps toward the development of cancer-targeting immunotherapy. The research team developed a treatment in mice that destroys part of the tumor and stimulates the immune system to attack persistent surviving cancer cells. In addition, the […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers from the University of Luxembourg have discovered a molecular mechanism that is responsible for the spread of cancer cells in the body and the development of metastases in patients with colon cancer. Their findings could help to develop treatments that inhibit tumor growth. Colorectal cancer (CRC) is among the most prevalent cancer types worldwide, […]Continue Reading ...
Getting magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans twice a year instead of one annual mammogram is far more effective at detecting early breast cancers in young women with a high-risk genetic profile than mammograms alone, according to a research team based at the University of Chicago Medicine and the University of Washington, Seattle. The results, first […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, Sept. 12, 2018 — Patients with prostate cancer receiving care in a Medicare-only setting are more likely to receive guideline-discordant imaging, according to a study published online Aug. 17 in JAMA Network Open. Danil V. Makarov, M.D., from New York University School of Medicine in New York City, and colleagues examined the correlation between […]Continue Reading ...
The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) today released its annual Cancer Progress Report highlighting how federally funded research discoveries are fueling the development of new and even more effective ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat cancer. Key advances outlined in the AACR Cancer Progress Report 2018 include the following: Twenty-two treatments for cancer […]Continue Reading ...
