Lynch Syndrome is a heritable genetic mutation that causes colorectal, endometrial and other cancers.
Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have identified a new so-called pseudogene that regulates the tumor-suppressing PTEN gene.
We dream of a world where we can eat whatever we like and not worry about the consequences, like weight gain and health issues, and now we might be a step closer.
In a perfect world, we could eat to our heart's content without sacrificing our health and good looks, and now it appears that maybe we can.
An international study led by the University of Melbourne has provided a clearer understanding of the cancer risks associated with the genetic mutation Lynch syndrome, a finding that could lead to earlier detection of a wide range of cancers in sufferers.
Researchers at Cleveland Clinic have discovered that a gene – known as an androgen receptor (AR) – is found in both prostate and breast cancers yet has opposite effects on these diseases.
Mayo Clinic researchers have found a mutant gene, which was long thought to accelerate tumor growth in thyroid cancer patients, actually inhibits the spread of cancerous cells.
Researchers have discovered a method for more precise identification of individuals who should undergo testing for genetic mutations of the tumor suppressor gene PTEN, which associates with a variety of conditions including several types of cancers.
An important gene that normally protects the body against cancer can itself cause a variety of cancers depending on the specific mutation that damages it
Scientists know a protein gene called PTEN is a major tumor-suppressor. When itâ€™s reduced or mutated, cancers can grow.
