E-cigarettes serve as smoking gateway for teens and young adults, Pitt-Dartmouth study finds
Young people across the United States who smoke electronic cigarettes are considerably more likely to start smoking traditional cigarettes within a year than their peers who do not smoke e-cigarettes, according to an analysis led by the University of Pittsburgh Center for Research on Media, Technology, and Health and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center.

CTCA study shows characterization of lung micro-organisms could help lung cancer patients
A study of microbes that inhabit human lungs and how they may relate to the development of lung cancer, led by Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Western Regional Medical Center in Goodyear, Arizona, was presented today in Denver during the 16th World Conference on Lung Cancer. Dr. Glen Weiss, Director of Clinical Research and Medical Oncologist at CTCA at Western presented the study at today's WCLC poster session on Biology, Pathology and Molecular Testing.

Biomarker helps predict survival time in gastric cancer patients
Gastric cancer poses a significant health problem in developing countries and is typically associated with late-stage diagnosis and high mortality. A new study in The American Journal of Pathology points to a pivotal role played by the biomarker microRNA (miR)-506 in gastric cancer. Patients whose primary gastric cancer lesions express high levels of miR-506 have significantly longer survival times compared to patients with low miR-506 expression. In addition, miR-506 suppresses tumor growth, blood vessel formation, and metastasis.

Increased detection of low-risk tumors driving up thyroid cancer rates, Mayo study finds
Low-risk cancers that do not have any symptoms and presumably will not cause problems in the future are responsible for the rapid increase in the number of new cases of thyroid cancer diagnosed over the past decade, according to a Mayo Clinic study published in the journal Thyroid. According to the study authors, nearly one-third of these recent cases were diagnosed when clinicians used high-tech imaging even when no symptoms of thyroid disease were present.

Drugs behave as predicted in computer model of key protein, enabling cancer drug discovery
Drugs behaved as predicted in a computer-generated model of the key protein, P-glycoprotein, say researchers at Southern Methodist University, Dallas. The model allows pharmacological researchers to dock nearly any drug and see how it behaves in P-gp, a cellular protein linked to failure of chemotherapy. A dynamic mechanism that overcomes reliance on static images of P-gp's structure, the new model provides hope for finding drug-like compounds that inhibit P-gp from pumping out chemotherapeutic drugs.

New drug-like compounds may improve odds of men battling prostate cancer, researchers find
Researchers at Southern Methodist University, Dallas, have discovered new drug-like compounds that could ultimately be developed into medicines that offer better odds of survival to prostate cancer patients. The new compounds target the human protein P-gp, which causes resistance against a majority of the drugs currently available for treating cancer and HIV/AIDS. The new compounds, discovered via computer-generated models, are good candidates for development into drugs since the compounds have low toxicity to noncancerous cells.

Acupuncture reduces hot flashes in breast cancer survivors
Acupuncture may be a viable treatment for women experiencing hot flashes as a result of estrogen-targeting therapies to treat breast cancer, according to a new study. Hot flashes are particularly severe and frequent in breast cancer survivors, but current FDA-approved remedies for these unpleasant episodes, such as hormone replacement therapies are off-limits to breast cancer survivors because they include estrogen. The results of the study are published this week in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
