Smokers diagnosed with pneumonia found to have higher risk of lung cancer
A new study from Tel Aviv University proposes that screening heavy smokers admitted to the hospital with community-acquired pneumonia could facilitate the early diagnosis of lung cancer and thereby reduce the incidence of mortality.

Scientist identifies energy sensor as potential target for cancer drugs
An international research team formed by a University of Cincinnati cancer researcher has shown for the first time that a specific enzyme is responsible for sensing the available supply of GTP, an energy source that fuels the uncontrolled growth of cancer cells. The research underscores the enzyme's potential to become a therapeutic target for future cancer drugs.

Blocking melanoma's escape: Avatars break theraping resistance in relapsed cancers
By utilizing a revolutionary method that allows mice to serve as 'avatars' for patients, scientists at The Wistar Institute have shown that a previously ineffective targeted drug for melanoma may actually be quite potent in halting the progression of disease in certain patients.

A 'printing press' for nanoparticles
Gold nanoparticles have unusual properties, which scientists are seeking to put to use in a range of technologies. Some of the most interesting properties emerge when nanoparticles are brought close together. But a major challenge has been finding ways to assemble these bits of gold while controlling the three-dimensional shape of their arrangement. In results reported in Nature Chemistry, researchers from McGill University outline a new technique.

Scientists root out the 'bad seeds' of liver cancer
Researchers have found the 'bad seeds' of liver cancer and believe they could one day reprogram them to remain responsive to cancer treatment, a new USC study has found. The key to disrupting chemo-resistant stem cells that become liver tumors from multiplying is to target the stem cell marker NANOG, said Keigo Machida, senior author.

Early trial shows injectable agent illuminates cancer during surgery
Doctors at the Duke University School of Medicine have tested a new injectable agent that causes cancer cells in a tumor to fluoresce, potentially increasing a surgeon's ability to locate and remove all of a cancerous tumor on the first attempt. The imaging technology was developed through collaboration with scientists at Duke, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Lumicell Inc.

International CTCA study shows statins could be effective against small cell lung cancer
Researchers at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) at Western Regional Medical Center (Western), in collaboration with international colleagues, found that statins could be an effective therapeutic against metastatic small cell lung cancer. The study of 876 late-stage SCLC patients, published today in the scientific journal PLOS ONE, showed that statins, a class of drugs primarily used to lower cholesterol in patients at risk for heart disease, appeared to provide an increase in overall survival.

New drug may overcome treatment resistance in a high-risk children's cancer
Pediatric oncologists from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have reported their latest results in devising new treatments for stubbornly deadly forms of the childhood cancer neuroblastoma. The 'unparalleled' strength of an ALK inhibitor in their preclinical studies, say the researchers, justifies fast-tracking the drug into pediatric clinical trials this year.

Proposed link between liver cancer and adeno-associated virus challenged in human gene therapy
The conclusion drawn from a recent study that insertion of adeno-associated virus 2 into human DNA causes mutations leading to the development of hepatocellular carcinoma was resoundingly rejected by leading researchers in the fields of gene therapy and molecular genetics. Calling the conclusions of the study authors 'an enormous leap from their data,' the team of researchers challenge details of the experimental methods, interpretation of the findings, and limitations of the study design in an Editorial published in Human Gene Therapy.

New FAU study suggests benefits of regular mammography extend to the elderly
Although a number of randomized trials demonstrate the clear benefits of mammography screening in women up to age 74 on reducing mortality, data are sparse in women over the age of 74, especially minorities. A new study shows that black and white women ages 75 to 84 years who had an annual mammogram had lower 10-year breast cancer mortality than corresponding women who had biennial or no/irregular mammograms.
