Latest Fusion gene Stories
Geneticists led by University of Utah Nobel Prize Laureate Mario R. Capecchi, Ph.D., have engineered mice that develop clear cell sarcoma (CCS), a significant step in better understanding how this rare and deadly soft tissue cancer arises.
A new study opens doors to understanding prostate cancer with the identification of a potential new pathway in prostate cancer cells by which cancer-driving gene products can be created.
Researchers have identified a potential new pathway in prostate cancer cells by which cancer-driving gene products can be generated.
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.
Smoking is a well-known risk factor for lung cancer, but nearly 25% of all lung cancer patients have never smoked.
Ovarian tumors can be deadly - especially if gone undetected like so many are.
About 15 percent of cases of an aggressive, difficult-to-detect form of ovarian cancer contain a unique fusion between two neighboring, normally separate genes, say researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
About half of prostate cancers have a genetic anomaly that appears to make tumor cells responsive to a new class of cancer-fighting drugs.
