More men at risk for prostate cancer as a result of less regular screening
The US Preventive Services Task Force recommendation against regular prostate specific antigen (PSA) screening for prostate cancer is controversial. While it may reduce the risk of over diagnosis and overtreatment, the reduction in intermediate and high risk cancer diagnoses raises concern because of the potential for delayed diagnoses of important cancers in men who may benefit from treatment, according to investigators reporting in The Journal of Urology.

Breast cancer: Care in Germany
Every year, more than 70,000 women in Germany develop an invasive breast tumor. This makes breast cancer the most common tumor disease in women. The current edition of Deutsches Ärzteblatt International contains no less than three articles focusing on breast cancer.

Study finds targeting exercise is not the best way to reduce prolonged sitting
Targeting sitting time, rather than physical activity, is the most effective way to reduce prolonged sitting, according to the first comprehensive review of strategies designed to reduce sitting time. The research, led by the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at King's College London, is published in the journal Health Psychology Review.

More than half of people invited to take a new bowel cancer screening test didn't take up the opportunity -- even though it could stop them developing or dying from the disease, according to a Cancer Research UK report published today in the Journal of Medical Screening.

Scientists identify DNA alterations as among earliest to occur in lung cancer development
Working with tissue, blood and DNA from six people with precancerous and cancerous lung lesions, a team of Johns Hopkins scientists has identified what it believes are among the very earliest 'premalignant' genetic changes that mark the potential onset of the most common and deadliest form of disease.

The new approach could be used to study everything from semiconductor chips to cancer cells.

Van Andel Research Institute, University of Toledo find way to combat brain cancer
Scientists at the University of Toledo Health Science Campus (UT) and Van Andel Research Institute (VARI) have discovered an innovative way that may stop the spread of the most lethal and aggressive brain cancer glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). In laboratory studies, scientists demonstrated that activating a specific family of proteins halted cancer cell migration into healthy tissue.

Mice exposed to environmental chemicals may show decreased physical activity in offspring
Endocrine disruptors interfere with endocrine or hormone systems and can cause tumors, birth defects and developmental disorders in mammals. Now, a University of Missouri study suggests that female mice exposed to environmental chemicals may cause decreases in their daughter's metabolism and the amount of exercise in which they engage in later in life. These disruptors when introduced in developmental stages, are essentially creating 'couch potatoes' among female mice and could predict future metabolic complications.

TSRI study identifies novel role of mitochondria in immune function
Scientists at the Scripps Research Institute have discovered a new role for an enzyme involved in cell death. Their study shows how the enzyme, called RIPK3, relays signals between the cell's mitochondria 'powerhouses' and the immune system. The new study shows that this crosstalk is important not only for launching immune responses against tumors, but also for regulating the inflammatory responses that may result in autoimmune diseases.

Discovery of a triple barrier that prevents cells from becoming cancerous
Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona researchers have identified for the first time a triple mechanism that stops mitosis when the integrity of the chromosomes is threatened. The activation of any of the three control pathways blocks the process that could lead to a malignant transformation. The study has been published in PLOS Genetics.

Western University hopes to use artificial intelligence to improve breast cancer patient outcomes
Western University researchers are working on a way to use artificial intelligence to predict a patient's response to two common chemotherapy medications used to treat breast cancer -- paclitaxel and gemcitabine. Peter Rogan, Ph.D., and a team of researchers, including Stephanie Dorman, Ph.D., and Katherina Baranova, B.M.Sc., at Western's Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, are hoping to one day remove the guesswork from breast cancer treatment with this technique.

Research discovery leads to potential diagnostic for assessing breast cancer recurrence
Every woman successfully treated for breast cancer lives with the knowledge that it could come back. New research published today in the journal Clinical Epigenetics may lead to a simple blood test to determine the risk of such recurrence, or the cancer invading other organs such as the lungs, bone or brain. Such a test would have profound implications for improving the future treatment of women with all types of breast cancer.
