Skin Care Knowledge Crucial to Avoid Treacherous Skin Cancers (PRWEB) September 15, 2013 Tan skin, for many, is the ideal picture of health. It can, however, simultaneously put people in life-threatening situations by opening the door for skin cancer. Increased knowledge on the perils of over exposure to the sun have led medical professionals to create guidelines that can protect you and the ones you love from the hazards associated with excessive sunlight. Taking precautionary methods...

Treatment associated with 6-month improvement, even in patients older than 80 Although numerous randomized clinical trials have demonstrated a benefit of chemotherapy for patients with small-cell lung cancer (SCLC), these trials have predominantly compared different chemotherapy regimens rather than comparing chemotherapy to best supportive care. Some of them included chest radiation or prophylactic cranial irradiation. Moreover, many trials excluded elderly patients. A recent...

A new study has revealed marked differences in the genomic terrain of the two most common types of cervical cancer, suggesting that patients might benefit from therapies geared to each type’s molecular idiosyncrasies. The study, published August 23, 2013 in the online version of the journal Cancer by researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), is the first to compare the spectrum of cancer-related gene mutations in the two main subtypes of...

Surgery is not always necessary for women with a type of breast tissue abnormality associated with a higher risk of cancer, according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology. Researchers said that periodic imaging and clinical exam are effective in these patients when radiology and pathology findings are benign and concordant, or in agreement. Atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH) and lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) are abnormal breast lesions that occasionally appear as...

Stowers investigators use genetics and live cell imaging to illuminate molecular mechanisms that position the cell division machinery in growing tissues Constructing a body is like building a house—if you compromise structural integrity, the edifice can collapse. Nowhere is that clearer on a cellular level than in the case of epithelial sheets, single layers of cells that line every body cavity from the gut to mammary glands. As long as epithelial cells pack tightly and...

Identified a new function of a protein involved in the development of squamous-cell carcinoma, the second most common type of skin cancer Researchers from the Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute (IMIM), lead by Lluís Espinosa, have identified a new function of the IB protein that is key in the development of squamous-cell carcinoma, a type of skin cancer. The study has been published in the prestigious journal Cancer Cell and provides a new tool for the diagnosis of the...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new study has determined a possible explanation as to why aspirin is able to lower the risk of some cancers. Aspirin has been known to lower the risk of cancers, and researchers wrote in the journal PLOS Genetics that the reason why is because the medicine slows the accumulation of DNA mutations in abnormal cells in at least one pre-cancerous condition. "Aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which are...
