Recent studies by researchers at Thomas Jefferson University’s Kimmel Cancer Center have shown a gene known to coordinate initial development of the eye (EYA1) is a powerful breast tumor promoter in mice. The gene EYA1 was also shown to be overexpressed in a genetic breast cancer subtype called luminal B. Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 28, 2013 Recent studies by researchers at Thomas Jefferson University’s Kimmel Cancer Center have shown a gene known to coordinate initial development...

Findings suggest a potent new therapeutic target for certain types of cancer Scientists have discovered the survival secret to a genetic mutation that stokes leukemia cells, solving an evolutionary riddle and paving the way to a highly targeted therapy for leukemia. In a paper published today in Cell, researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center describe how a mutated protein, called Fbxw7, behaves differently when expressed in cancer cells versus healthy cells. "Fbxw7 is essential for making...

-A protein called Nanog helps the renewal of healthy embryonic stem cells. -This study shows that Nanog also promotes cancer stem cell proliferation in head and neck cancer and shows how it promotes their growth. -The findings could lead to new, novel treatments for head and neck cancer. A new study led by researchers at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center — Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC—James) has...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports — Your Universe Online The genetic traits of glial cells -- the cells which give rise to the most common form of malignant brain cancer in humans -- have been identified by a team of researchers led by University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) neurologist Dr. Steven Goldman. “This study identifies a core set of genes and pathways that are dysregulated during both the early and late stages of tumor progression,” Goldman, senior...

How And Where Breast Tumor Cells Become Dormant And What Causes Them To Become Metastatic
2013-06-03 19:49:37

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory The long-standing mystery behind dormant disseminated breast tumor cells and what activates them after years and even decades of latency may have been solved. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)´s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have identified the microenvironment surrounding microvasculature — the small blood vessels that transport blood within tissues — as a niche where dormant cancer cells...

Injection of human stem cells into mice with tumors slowed down tumor growth, finds research published in BioMed Central's open access journal Stem Cell Research & Therapy. Human mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), isolated from bone marrow, caused changes in blood vessels supplying the tumor, and it is this modification of blood supply which seems to impact tumor growth. The use of stem cells in treating cancer has been controversial, with some studies finding that stem cells force tumors...
