Disparities in breast cancer persist across all subtypes and stages
Minority women were more likely to have aggressive subtypes of breast cancer and were more likely to receive non-guideline concordant treatment when compared with non-Hispanic white women.

Cancer survivors often have poor diets, which can affect their long-term health
While most cancer survivors in the United States are motivated to seek information about food choices and dietary changes to improve their health, a new study comparing their dietary patterns to federal guidelines indicates that they often fall short.

Turncoat protein regulates sensitivity of breast cancer cells to drug
A surprising, paradoxical relationship between a tumor suppressor molecule and an oncogene may be the key to explaining and working around how breast cancer tumor cells become desensitized to a common cancer drug.

First comprehensive profile of non-protein-coding RNAs in human cancers
70 percent of the genome is made into non-coding RNA, but most studies of genomic alterations in cancer have focused on the miniscule portion of the human genome that encodes protein. An international team has mined these RNA sequences more fully to identify non-protein-coding segments whose expression is linked to 13 different types of cancer.

Scientists uncover 4 different types of bowel cancer
Bowel cancer can be divided up into four distinct diseases, each with its own set of biological characteristics, a major new study reports. The research could allow doctors to treat each type of bowel cancer differently - and drive the design of distinct sets of targeted drugs for each type.

Prostate cells undergo 'reprogramming' to form tumors, study finds
Researchers link early prostate cancer to alterations in a program controlled by a 'master regulator' of cell growth. These epigenetic changes point to new avenues for preventing and treating prostate cancer.

Adoption of streamlined breast cancer treatment has stagnated, study finds
It was hoped that the development of accelerated partial breast irradiation would increase the number of early-stage breast cancer patients getting radiation treatment. A new study, however, has found that adoption of the technique has stagnated -- and many women still aren't getting the radiation treatment that could save their lives.

Researchers use gut bacteria composition to genetically classify colorectal tumors
By analyzing the types of gut bacteria present around colorectal tumors, researchers have found a way to predict key genetic mutations in the tumors themselves, a method that could eventually inform the development of colorectal cancer diagnostics and therapeutics. Their findings were presented at the American Society of Human Genetics 2015 Annual Meeting in Baltimore.

Antioxidants cause malignant melanoma to metastasize faster
Fresh research at Sahlgrenska Academy has found that antioxidants can double the rate of melanoma metastasis in mice. The results reinforce previous findings that antioxidants hasten the progression of lung cancer. According to Professor Martin Bergö, people with cancer or an elevated risk of developing the disease should avoid nutritional supplements that contain antioxidants.

Scientists pave way for diamonds to trace early cancers
Physicists from the University of Sydney, Australia, have devised a way to use diamonds to identify cancerous tumours before they become life threatening. Their findings, published today in Nature Communications, reveal how a nanoscale, synthetic version of the precious gem can light up early-stage cancers in non-toxic, non-invasive Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans.

3-D image of cancer protein aids quest for new treatments
Scientists at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute have created the first three-dimensional image of a key protein known to be involved in the development of blood and other cancers. The discovery showed the protein, called Trib1, plays a vital role in controlling how and when other proteins are degraded, which is essential for managing protein levels in the cell. The finding could be used to develop new drugs to treat cancers such as leukaemia, caused by malfunctioning of the Trib1 protein.

UV light robots cut c. diff transmissions by 25 percent on cancer patient floors
New research from Penn Medicine infection control specialists found that ultraviolet robots helped reduce the rates transmission of the common bacterial infection known as Clostridium difficile among cancer inpatients -- mostly blood cancer patients, a group more vulnerable to hospital-acquired infections -- by 25 percent. The interventions also saved about $150,000 in annual direct medical costs.

Researchers discover new information on the spread of cancer
A new study from the University of Turku, Finland, shows that intracellular receptor signalling sustains cancer cells that have detached from the surrounding tissue. When the signalling is prevented, the cells cannot spread to other parts of the body. This significant research result influences how cancer research is directed in the future.

A multilaminar model explains the structure of chromosomal aberrations in cancer cells
The organization of DNA packaged in chromosomes during cell division has been very difficult to study experimentally. Researchers from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona have found that the structure of translocations in cancer cells shows that chromosomes are formed by thin plates of chromatin.
