These tumors can become malignant in humans Rhode Island Hospital researchers have found that the absence of the Shp-2 enzyme near specialized cartilage cells can lead to the development of multiple benign cartilage tumors in mice, a model that recapitulates the rare human tumor syndrome metachondromatosis. Shp2 is an enzyme in the cell that regulates the activity of other proteins and signaling pathways. Mice lacking Shp2 formed two types of tumors: enchondromas and osteochondromas, and...

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Modern day exposure to pollution, toxins, radiation, and even unhealthy foods are considerable factors in the risk of future cancer. And because these factors are associated with modern society, it is especially rare to find cancers in earlier civilizations. Still, cancers have been found previously in ancient cultures; the oldest was in an Egyptian mummy from about 2,200 years ago. While that was a remarkable find for...

First-of-its-kind research presented today showed microwave ablation (MWA) therapy cut pain in half for patients with painful bone and soft-tissue tumors and took less time to complete than radiofrequency ablation. Pain relief lasted over 4 months on average and up to 15 months in some patients, according to results reported at the 29th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Pain Medicine. Approximately 10,600 new cases of soft-tissue sarcoma and 2,570 new cases of bone sarcoma were...

Emerging Cancer Drugs May Cause Bone Tumors To Spread

Washington University in St. Louis Cancer drugs should kill tumors, not encourage their spread. But new evidence suggests that an otherwise promising class of drugs may actually increase the risk of tumors spreading to bone, according to researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The drugs, IAP antagonists, block survival signals that many cancer cells rely on to stay alive. Working in mice, the investigators found that targeting the same protein that makes...

Ewing´s sarcoma is a bone cancer commonly diagnosed in about 250 U.S. teenagers per year. If early chemotherapy is effective, improvement can be durable. But for children and teens who respond poorly to a first attempt at chemotherapy or if the disease spreads, long-term survival can be less than 10 percent. A University of Colorado Cancer Center study published this week in the journal Molecular Cancer Research shows an important difference that may explain why some respond and some...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- New research shows when it comes to bone-cancer-related fractures, pain can be reduced by drug treatment, but no one drug is superior. Researchers undertook a systematic review of the current evidence on bisphosphonate drugs, which are used to prevent bone damage in multiple myeloma. Severe back pain is a common symptom of multiple myeloma–a type of cancer that can cause fractures in long bones and the spine. Bisphosphonate drugs may help to reduce the...

Bone cancer-related fractures and pain can be reduced by drug treatment, but no one drug is superior, according to a review published in The Cochrane Library. Researchers undertook a systematic review of the current evidence on bisphosphonate drugs, which are used to prevent bone damage in multiple myeloma. Multiple myeloma is a type of cancer that grows in and on bones, and can cause fractures in long bones and the spine. Severe back pain is a common symptom. Bisphosphonate drugs may help...
