The dietary supplement gamma-linoleic acid can inhibit the growth of a subset of pancreatic cancer cells and selectively promote cancer cell death in mice.

Scientists at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) have discovered a literal 'break through' in pancreatic cancer.

Pancreas cancer tumors spread quickly and are notoriously resistant to treatment, making them among the deadliest of malignancies.

A protein abundantly found in treatment-resistant cancers holds an important tumor-suppressor out of the cell nucleus, where it would normally detect DNA damage and force defective cells to kill themselves, a team of scientists reports in the current Cancer Cell.

Until now, researchers have not examined never-smokers as extensively as they have smokers as potential lung cancer patients.

Researchers have begun to identify which mutations and pathway changes lead to lung cancer in never-smokers — a first step in developing potential therapeutic targets.

Multicentric carcinogenesis with the same genetic mutation appears to occur in lung adenocarcinoma.

Researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) have begun to identify mutations and cellular pathway changes that lead to lung cancer in never-smokers — a first step in developing potential therapeutic targets.

Smoking is a well-known risk factor for lung cancer, but about 25% of all lung cancer patients have never smoked. According to this study, a gene fusion event could explain a significant proportion of these lung cancer cases, and may serve as a target for new therapies.


Word of the Day
bretelles
  • In dressmaking, straps running from the belt in front over the shoulders to the belt in the back, with more or less elaboration of trimming and outline. They usually broaden at the shoulder and narrow toward the waist.
The word 'bretelles' comes from a French word meaning 'braces'.
