The HER2 growth-factor gene is known to be over-active in breast and gastro-esophageal cancers. But now, irregularities in the genes 's expression – among them mutations, amplifications, substitutions, and translocations – have been found in 14 different advanced solid tumors. The results of the study of more than 2,000 tumors, being presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), both surprised researchers and provided hope that some of...

Regular use of low-dose aspirin may prevent the progression of breast cancer, according to results of a study by researchers at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Kansas City, Mo., and the University of Kansas Medical Center. The study found that aspirin slowed the growth of breast cancer cell lines in the lab and significantly reduced the growth of tumors in mice. The age-old headache remedy also exhibits the ability to prevent tumor cells from spreading. The lead author of the...

University of North Carolina Health Care Triple-negative breast cancers are more biologically diverse than previously believed and classification should be expanded to reflect this heterogeneity, according to University of North Carolina researchers. In a study published in the February issue of The Oncologist conducted by UNC and the Vall d'Hebron Institute of Oncology in Barcelona, Spain, a team lead by Charles Perou, PhD, of UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, examined more...

New Weill Cornell study shows anti-copper drug might prevent the spread of cancer to organs An anti-copper drug compound that disables the ability of bone marrow cells from setting up a "home" in organs to receive and nurture migrating cancer tumor cells has shown surprising benefit in one of the most difficult-to-treat forms of cancer -- high-risk triple-negative breast cancer. The median survival for metastatic triple-negative breast cancer patients is historically nine months....

-Triple-negative breast cancer is an aggressive form of breast cancer that has few treatment options; -This large-scale study shows that abnormal levels of small molecules called microRNA can be used to classify this malignancy into four subtypes; -The findings could lead to new ways to identify the best therapy for individual patients and to more effective therapies in the future. A new, large-scale study of triple-negative breast cancer shows that small molecules called microRNA can be...

A new approach mimicking the body's natural defenses could help treat a therapy-resistant breast cancer Cancer drugs of the new, molecular generation destroy malignant breast tumors in a targeted manner: They block characteristic molecules on tumor cells - receptors for the hormones estrogen or progesterone, or a co-receptor, called HER2, that binds to many growth factors. But about one in every six breast tumors has none of these receptors. Such cancers, called triple-negative, are...
