3-D culture system for pancreatic cancer has potential to change therapeutic approaches
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer, with only 6 percent of patients surviving five years after diagnosis. Today, CSHL and The Lustgarten Foundation announce the development of a new model system to grow both normal and cancerous pancreatic cells in the laboratory. Their work promises to change the way pancreatic cancer research is done, allowing scientists to interrogate the pathways driving this devastating disease while searching for new drug targets.

More than 1.5 million cancer deaths averted during 2 decades of dropping mortality
The American Cancer Society's annual cancer statistics report finds that a 22 percent drop in cancer mortality over two decades led to the avoidance of more than 1.5 million cancer deaths that would have occurred if peak rates had persisted.

Cancer treatment potential discovered in gene repair mechanism
Case Western Reserve researchers have identified a two-pronged therapeutic approach that shows great potential for weakening and then defeating cancer cells. The team's complex mix of genetic and biochemical experiments unearthed a way to increase the presence of a tumor-suppressing protein which, in turn, gives it the strength to direct cancer cells toward a path that leads to their destruction. The breakthrough detailed appeared in the Nov. 24 online edition of the journal PNAS.

Lung cancer metastases may travel through airways to adjacent or distant lung tissue
A new study by researchers in Canada supports the hypothesis that lung cancer, particularly adenocarcinoma, may spread through the airways. The putative occurrence of intrapulmonary aerogenous metastasis of lung cancer has staging, management, and prognostic implications.

Protein ID'd as possible universal therapeutic target for many infections, including Ebola
A protein called GRP78 could be a universal therapeutic target for treating human diseases like brain cancer, Ebola, influenza, hepatitis and superbug bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, according to a Virginia Commonwealth University-led preclinical study published this month in the Journal of Cellular Physiology.

Sugar molecule links red meat consumption and elevated cancer risk in mice
While people who eat a lot of red meat are known to be at higher risk for certain cancers, other carnivores are not, prompting researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine to investigate the possible tumor-forming role of a sugar called Neu5Gc, which is naturally found in most mammals but not in humans.

CNIO researchers activate hair growth by modifying immune cells
How to restore hair loss is a task not undertaken exclusively by beauty practitioners. The discovery, now published by a group from the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre, reveals a novel angle to spur hair follicle growth. This also adds new knowledge to a broader problem: how to regenerate tissues in an adult organism, especially the skin.

Suppressing a protein reduces cancer spread in mice
In a new study, researchers found that a specific protein called 'chitinase 3-like-1' appears key in enabling malignant melanoma or breast cancer to spread to the lungs of mice. Decreasing its levels or blocking the protein dramatically reduced that spread.

These mutations occur at four specific sites in what is known as the 'hTERT promoter' in more than 75 percent of glioblastomas and melanomas.
