Controlling protein intake may be key to a long and healthy life
While it's clear that diet can affect longevity, there's great uncertainty about which combinations of foods are best for attaining a long and healthy life. Now two groups of researchers publishing in the March 4 issue of the Cell Press journal Cell Metabolism each suggest that low protein intake may be a key factor, at least until old age.

Imprint of chemotherapy linked to inflammation in breast cancer survivors
Chemotherapy can leave a long-lasting epigenetic imprint in the DNA of breast cancer patients' blood cells. That imprint is associated with biological signs of inflammation up to six months after the completion of treatment.

Does palliative chemotherapy palliate?
Terminal cancer patients who receive chemotherapy in the last months of their lives are less likely to die where they want and are more likely to undergo invasive medical procedures than those who do not receive chemotherapy, according to research in this week's BMJ.

Meat and cheese may be as bad for you as smoking
A high-protein diet during middle age makes you nearly twice as likely to die and four times more likely to die of cancer, but moderate protein intake is good for you after 65.

Investigational drug may increase survival for some patients with advanced melanoma
An experimental drug aimed at restoring the immune system's ability to spot and attack cancer-halted cancer progression or shrank tumors in patients with advanced melanoma, according to a multi-site, early-phase clinical trial at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and 11 other institutions. All patients had experienced disease progression despite prior systemic therapies, and most had received two or more prior treatments.

TGen identifies key protein that helps prevent lung cancer tumors from being destroyed
Researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute have discovered a protein, Mcl-1, that helps enable one of the most common and deadly types of cancer to survive radiation and drug treatments. In a new laboratory study published in the scientific journal Molecular Cancer Research, TGen investigators found that a protein called Mcl-1 helps enable TWEAK-Fn14, which in turn helps protect NSCLC tumors from being destroyed by radiation and drugs.

Screening does not shift breast cancer to earlier stages
New research from Aarhus University suggests that screening for breast cancer results in increased diagnoses of early stage cancer -- but without a similarly sized decrease in the more serious and aggressive cases.

Researchers identify 'carbohydrates in a coal mine' for cancer detection
Researchers at New York University and the University of Texas at Austin have discovered that carbohydrates serve as identifiers for cancer cells. Their findings show how these molecules may serve as signals for cancer and explain what's going on inside these cells, pointing to new ways in which sugars function as a looking glass into the workings of their underlying structures.

Eliminating bacteria, changing lifestyle could lower risk in people genetically susceptible to colorectal cancer
Using a transgenic mouse model, Mount Sinai researchers found that the intestinal polyps depend on gut bacteria and that antibiotic treatment eradicated the bacteria and prevented polyp formation. They propose that bacteria in the gut cross into the intestine promoting inflammation and tumor growth.

Big stride in understanding PP1, the ubiquitous enzyme
The enzyme PP1 has a key role in many of the body's healthy functions and diseases. It's so generally important that drug developers dare not target it. In a new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Brown University scientists report a big leap in understanding how PP1 interacts with other proteins to behave specifically in distinct situations. That could lead to medicines that target it for precise benefits.

Researchers develop antibody-targeted treatment for recurrent small-cell lung cancer
Researchers at Norris Cotton Cancer Center have found an antibody that may be used in future treatments for recurrent small-cell lung cancer, which currently has no effective therapy. The mouse monoclonal antibody they have developed, MAG-1, targets the ProAVP surface marker. When given alone, it significantly slows the growth of tumor xenografts of human recurrent small-cell lung cancer in mice.

Homing in on cancer with a comprehensive measurement method
Whether a tumor develops from individual cancer cells and whether metastases are formed depends on many factors in the affected tissue. A greater understanding of a tumor's complex switch and control circuits could help to combat cancer in a more targeted fashion. Re-searchers at the University of Zurich have come up with an imaging method that is able to simultaneously visualize a previously unachieved number of factors involved in cancer.

New approach to breast reconstruction surgery reduces opioid painkiller use
A new approach to breast reconstruction surgery aimed at helping patients' bodies get back to normal more quickly cut their postoperative opioid painkiller use in half and meant a day less in the hospital on average, a Mayo Clinic study found. The method includes new pain control techniques, preventive anti-nausea treatment and getting women eating and walking soon after free flap breast reconstruction surgery. It has proved so effective, it is now being used across plastic surgery at Mayo Clinic.
