Drug candidate shrinks tumor when delivered by plant virus nanoparticle
In a pair of firsts, researchers at Case Western Reserve University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology have shown that the drug candidate phenanthriplatin can be more effective than an approved drug in vivo, and that a plant-virus-based carrier successfully delivers a drug in vivo.

New study lays groundwork for potential new anti-cancer therapy
Identifying the cell of origin is crucial to understanding how a tumor develops and metastasizes and for developing targeted therapies. Researchers have found evidence supporting a lymphatic endothelium origin for angiomyolipoma (AML) and lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), two related tumors with previously unknown cellular origins. Furthermore, the newly identified lymphatic endothelial lineage shows translational potential for pharmaceutical treatment. Their findings are published in The American Journal of Pathology.

Sanger Institute: Landmark study shows AML is at least 11 different diseases
Patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) could be separated genomically into at least 11 major groups, each with different constellations of genetic changes and distinctive clinical features. This genetic complexity helps explain why AML shows such variability in survival rates among patients. Full knowledge of the genetic make-up of a patient's leukemia substantially improved the ability to predict whether that patient would be cured with current treatments.

Cancer researchers take on an old foe
In the annals of cancer research, a protein known as KRas has become notorious. Part of a family of proteins implicated in 30 percent of cancers, KRas is considered a highly desirable but defiant drug target. Scientists have resuscitated efforts to crack its structure and find drugs to disable it. The cover story of Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society, reports on the latest efforts to fight KRas.

Whole-exome sequencing predicts which bladder cancers and cell lines respond to cisplatin
University of Colorado Cancer Center study published online in Oncogene describes mutational landscape of bladder cancer cell lines, demonstrates that alterations in these cells lines do indeed match changes in samples of human bladder cancer and shows genes and gene pathways that may be functionally involved in the ability of bladder cancer to resist therapy.

New types of blood cancer discovered in children
Through a detailed study of leukaemia cells from more than 200 children, a research group at Lund University in Sweden has discovered two new types of childhood leukaemia. Using next-generation sequencing technology (NGS), the researchers were able to study the genome of cancer cells, which is how they discovered the new types of cancer.

Predicting advanced prostate cancer outcomes with NaF-PET/CT
A recent pilot study reported in the June issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine found that sodium fluoride (Na-F-18) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (NaF-PET/CT) accurately detects bone metastases in patients with advanced prostate cancer, and follow-up scans over time correlate clearly with clinical outcomes and patient survival.

In research appearing in the current issue of Annals of the New York Academy of Science, Aktipis and her colleagues Helen Wasielewski (ASU's Department of Psychology), and Joe Alcock, (at the University of New Mexico Department of Emergency Medicine), examine the role of microbes in the gut. Their study explores how dietary choices promote cooperation or might fuel conflict between gut microbes and the humans they interact with, maintaining health or encouraging the onset of disease.
