Pathologists often disagree on breast biopsy results when diagnosing DCIS
A study applying B-Path (Breast Pathology) Study results to patient populations found that pathologists disagree with one another about 8 percent of the time when diagnosing a single breast biopsy slide. Discordance was more likely in cases of DCIS or atypia, with a tendency toward overdiagnosing disease. The findings are published in Annals of Internal Medicine.

Moffitt pathologists identify new potential target in ovarian serous cancer
Moffitt Cancer Center researchers discovered that patients with ovarian serous cancer and an overexpression of the HER4 protein are less likely to respond to chemotherapy and have a lower rate of survival. That's according to a study Carolina Strosberg, M.D., is presenting this week at the 2016 United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) Annual Conference in Seattle, Washington.

For first time, scientists use CRISPR-Cas9 to target RNA in live cells
Scientists have long sought an efficient method for targeting RNA -- intermediary genetic material that carries the genetic code from the cell's nucleus to protein-making machinery -- in living cells. Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have now achieved this by applying the popular DNA-editing technique CRISPR-Cas9 to RNA. The study is published March 17, 2016 in Cell.

Reprogramming bone tumors
There exist several oncogenes that drive cancer. In many cases, however, the oncogenes themselves are not sufficient and must be complemented with other mutations before cancer develops. Researchers at the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application, Kyoto University, use cell reprogramming technology to revert cancer cells to a stem cell state. The researchers show that dysfunctional differentiation in conjunction with a specific oncogene could explain the cause of certain bone cancers.

Moffitt: Neutralizing tumor acidic environment improves immune-targeting therapies
Cancer cells have the ability to grow in an acidic tumor environment that is detrimental to other cells, including immune cells. In a Cancer Research cover article published this week, Moffitt Cancer Center reported that neutralizing the acidic tumor environment increases the efficacy of several immune-targeting cancer therapies.

10-minute urine test can measure specific compounds from food consumed
Can we say goodbye to unreliable food diaries and diet recall in exchange for a urine test that will better aid researchers in figuring out what foods might help prevent cancer? Researchers have developed a method that can quickly evaluate specific food compounds in human urine. They say their method could one day replace unreliable food logs used in population studies examining the effects of diet on cancer and will also help scientists accurately identify the most beneficial anticancer foods.

Chinese scientists modulate cholesterol metabolism to potentiate T-cell antitumor immunity
As key players in the immune system, T cells provide tumor surveillance and have direct antitumor effects. In their new study, Prof. XU Chenqi's group and Prof. LI Boliang's group with the Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology of the Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, found that inhibiting cholesterol esterification can potentiate the antitumor activity of CD8+ T cells (also known as killer T cells).

In a new study led by researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital, investigators looked at men with aggressive prostate cancer who were treated with radiation as well as the case volume of the facility at which they were treated. They found that receiving radiation at a facility that treats a high volume of prostate cancer patients with radiation was associated with improved overall survival.
