Research by Chronix Biomedical and Institute of Veterinary Medicine Gottingen highlights cell-free DNA analysis for cancer minimal residual disease Researchers from the University Göttingen Institute of Veterinary Medicine and Chronix Biomedical have published a new study exploring the genetic hallmarks of canine mammary cancer. Appearing in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS ONE, the paper identifies important similarities and differences between human and canine breast tumors, providing a...

Study adds to growing health concerns about common plastic additive A new study finds that fetal exposure to the plastic additive bisphenol A, or BPA, alters mammary gland development in primates. The finding adds to the evidence that the chemical can be causing health problems in humans and bolsters concerns about it contributing to breast cancer. "Previous studies in mice have demonstrated that low doses of BPA alter the developing mammary gland and that these subtle changes increase...

Research study reports extending survival in mice by 70 percent; initial studies in humans are under way Pancreas cancer tumors spread quickly and are notoriously resistant to treatment, making them among the deadliest of malignancies. Their resistance to chemotherapy stems in part from a unique biological barrier the tumor builds around itself. Now scientists at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center have found a way to break through that defense, and their research represents a potential...

SAN DIEGO and WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARNA) and Eisai Inc. announced today results from a Pathology Working Group's (PWG) re-adjudication of female rat mammary tumor diagnoses from a two-year rat carcinogenicity study of lorcaserin. Arena convened the PWG in response to the lorcaserin Complete Response Letter (CRL), which questioned the certainty of the female rat mammary tumor classifications. The PWG reviewed relevant...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ Researchers have discovered a protein (Runx3) that is a potent suppressor of breast cancer growth. "People suggested that Runx3 might be a tumor suppressor in breast cancer because they found that it is down-regulated in a lot of breast cancer cell lines and breast cancer tissues," University of Illinois medical biochemistry professor Lin-Feng Chen, who led the study, was quoted as saying. In this study, Chen and his colleagues at Nagasaki University discovered...

Researchers have identified a protein long known to regulate gene expression as a potent suppressor of breast cancer growth. Their study, in the journal Oncogene, is the first to demonstrate how this protein, known as Runx3, accomplishes this feat. "People suggested that Runx3 might be a tumor suppressor in breast cancer because they found that it is down-regulated in a lot of breast cancer cell lines and breast cancer tissues," said University of Illinois medical biochemistry professor...

The findings could relate to known association between human social isolation and elevated cancer risk Stress from social isolation, combined with a high-fat diet, increases levels of a brain neurotransmitter "“ neuropeptide Y, or NPY "“ in mice that then promotes obesity, insulin resistance, and breast cancer risk, say researchers at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, a part of Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC). Major increases in NPY levels are seen when...

Elevated fat and cholesterol levels found in a typical American-style diet play an important role in the growth and spread of breast cancer, say researchers at the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson. The study, published in the January issue of The American Journal of Pathology, examines the role of fat and cholesterol in breast cancer development using a mouse model. The results show that mice fed a Western diet and predisposed to develop mammary tumors, can develop larger tumors that are...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ A study done in young mice that experienced the psychosocial stress of being separated from their mothers for a long period of time had higher incidence and faster onset of breast tumors compared with young mice that did not experience such event. The study showed that neonatal mice separated from their mothers for a prolonged period of time developed mammary tumors twice as fast as mice that experienced short or no maternal separation. The results add to the...
