Pseudogenes may provide clearer understanding of biomarkers
The results indicated that the science of pseudogene expression analysis may very well play a key role in explaining how cancer occurs by helping medical experts in the discovery of new biomarkers. The study's findings appear in today's issue of Nature Communications.

Does cycling increase risk for erectile dysfunction, infertility, or prostate cancer?
Cycling is a popular activity that offers clear health benefits, but there is an ongoing controversy about whether men who ride have a higher risk of urogenital disorders such as erectile dysfunction, infertility, or prostate cancer.

DNA origami nano-tool provides important clue to cancer
Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have headed a study that provides new knowledge about the EphA2 receptor, which is significant in several forms of cancer. This is important knowledge in itself -- but just as important is how this study, which is published in the highly respected journal Nature Methods, was conducted.

Support team aiding caregivers of cancer patients shows success, CWRU researchers report
Many caregivers of terminal cancer patients suffer depression and report regret and guilt from feeling they could have done more to eliminate side effects and relieve the pain. So researchers from the nursing school at Case Western Reserve University devised and tested an intervention that quickly integrates a cancer support team to guide caregivers and their patients through difficult end-of-life treatment and decisions.

First cancer immunotherapy for dogs developed
Nearly every second dog develops cancer from the age of 10 years onward. A specific form of therapy by which antibodies inhibit tumor growth has not been available for animals so far. Scientists at the Messerli Research Institute of the Vetmeduni Vienna, the Medical University, and the University of Vienna have developed, for the first time, antibodies to treat cancer in dogs. The scientists published their research data in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics.

Scientists find important piece in the brain tumor puzzle
Scientists at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, McGill University and McGill University Health Centre have shown that a member of the protein family known as SUMO -- small ubiquitin-like modifier -- is a key to why tumor cells multiply uncontrollably, especially in the case of glioblastoma.

A CNIO team reduces the size of the human genome to 19,000 genes
A study led by Alfonso Valencia and Michael Tress at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre updates the number of human genes to 19,000; 1,700 fewer than the genes in the most recent annotation, and well below the initial estimations of 100,000 genes. The work, published in the journal Human Molecular Genetics, concludes that almost all of these genes have ancestors prior to the appearance of primates 50 million years ago.

New study reveals how tumors remodel their surroundings to grow
Research identifies a mechanism in the tumor stroma that triggers an inflammatory response, promoting tumor growth and metastasis. The findings suggest a new approach to anti-cancer therapies that incorporates targets in the tumor microenvironment.

Rapid surgical innovation puts patients at risk for medical errors
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have found that the risk of patient harm increased two-fold in 2006 -- the peak year that teaching hospitals nationwide embraced the pursuit of minimally invasive robotic surgery for prostate cancer. Results of the study are published in the July 2 online issue of JAMA Surgery.

Stem cell type resists chemotherapy drug
In lab tests, Brown University researchers have found that adipose-derived stem cells, which can generate bone tissue, appear resistant to the toxicity of the chemotherapy drug methotrexate, which degrades bone in patients such as kids suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The newly published findings are preliminary but more tests are planned.
