Gene mutation patterns in melanoma vary from North to South in New Zealand
Melanomas in patients from New Zealand's South Island are significantly more likely than those of North Islanders to carry a gene mutation that has implications for mutation-targeted drug therapies and for patient outcomes, new University of Otago-led research suggests.

Researchers find blood marker that determines who will respond to colorectal cancer drug
Cancer researchers have identified a marker that shows up in a blood test that determines which patients with colorectal cancer that has spread would benefit from receiving the drug cetuximab.

Dogs provide information about brain tumor development in humans
Brain tumors in dogs are strikingly similar to their human tumor counterparts. In a recent study in the journal PLOS Genetics, researchers at Uppsala University and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences have used genetic analyses in different dog breeds to identify genes that could have a role in the development of brain tumors in both dogs and human.

Stopping cancer in its tracks
Inhibiting autophagy, the process cells use to degrade large intra-cellular cargo, effectively blocks tumor cell migration and breast cancer metastasis in tumor models. Metastasis is responsible for 90 percent of cancer deaths. There are approved drugs that can disrupt autophagy.

Andrei Goga's UCSF team finds new approaches to eradicate aggressive breast cancers
Dr. Goga's team identified fatty acid oxidation intermediates as being significantly upregulated in a MYC-driven model of TNBC. In the MYC-driven transgenic TNBC model and also MYC over-expressing TNBC PDX models, they found that inhibition of FAO decreased energy metabolism and blocked tumor growth, suggesting that FAO has a critical role for in vivo tumor activity.

Study of glioma susceptibility in dogs may yield insights for humans
A new study of the genetic factors underlying glioma formation in dogs may hold clues to how these common and often untreatable tumors form in humans. The genome study, which was conducted across 25 dog breeds, identified three genes associated with the tumor. The results from this research, led by Katarina Truvé of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Kerstin Lindblad-Toh of Uppsala University, were published on May 12 in PLOS Genetics.

Is initiation of chemo affected by complementary, alternative medicine use?
Women with early-stage breast cancer for whom chemotherapy was indicated and who used dietary supplements and multiple types of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) were less likely to start chemotherapy than nonusers of CAM, according to a new study published online by JAMA Oncology.

Scientists find that cancer can arise from changes in the proteins that package DNA
Mutations in histones, the proteins that shield and package DNA, have been linked to many types of cancer, but their role in promoting disease has not been clear. Now, for the first time, scientists have found that a change to the structure of a histone can trigger a tumor on its own.

Gene regulatory mutation linked to rare childhood cancer
A single defect in a gene that codes for a histone -- a 'spool' that wraps idle DNA -- is linked to pediatric cancers in a study published today in the journal Science. 'Unlike most cancers that require multiple hits, we found that this particular mutation can form a tumor all by itself,' says Peter W. Lewis, an assistant professor of biomolecular chemistry in the School of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Surgical oncology societies: Global curriculum to address training variations, inadequacies
The Society of Surgical Oncology and the European Society of Surgical Oncology, in two jointly published reports, highlight the global variations in training and make the case for a streamlined global surgical oncology curriculum of uniform standards. It is envisioned that the application of this minimum uniform standards of training will create a robust workforce of well-trained surgical oncologists to meet the growing need resulting from the rising global cancer burden.

Use of complementary, alternative medicine affects initiation of chemotherapy
Women with early-stage breast cancer for whom chemotherapy was indicated and who used dietary supplements and multiple types of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) were less likely to start chemotherapy than nonusers of alternative therapies, according to latest research at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health. This is one of the first studies to evaluate how complementary and alternative medicine use affects decisions regarding chemotherapy.

No symptoms, but could there be cancer? Our chemosensor will detect it!
Many cancers could be successfully treated if the patient consulted the doctor sufficiently early. But how can a developing cancer be detected if it doesn't give rise to any symptoms? In the near future, suitably early diagnosis could be provided by simple and cheap chemical sensors -- thanks to special recognizing polymer films developed at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw.
