Disturbances in blood cell gene transcription may lead to leukemia
Researchers have succeeded in shedding light on the pathogenesis of DNA breakpoints that are associated with leukemia. A mechanism discovered in a recent study can explain up to 90 percent of DNA damages present in the most common type of leukemia in children. The study was carried out by the University of Eastern Finland and the University of Tampere, and the findings were published in eLife.

Uncovering a new principle in chemotherapy resistance in breast cancer
A laboratory study has revealed an entirely unexpected process for acquiring drug resistance that bypasses the need to re-establish DNA damage repair in breast cancers that have mutant BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes.

Liquid biopsies offer hope for earlier treatment, better tracking of ovarian cancer
Researchers at the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine have found a promising new way to monitor and treat recurrence of ovarian cancer -- a hard-to-detect disease that claims many lives. New research from George Vasmatzis, Ph.D., of the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at Mayo Clinic, finds liquid biopsies from blood tests and DNA sequencing can detect a return of ovarian cancer long before a tumor reappears.

More imaging after thyroid cancer treatment identifies recurrence, but it does not always improve survival, a new study suggests.

Study raises concerns over unnecessary imaging after thyroid cancer
A marked rise in use of imaging tests after thyroid cancer has been associated with increased treatment for recurrence, but no clear improvement in survival from the disease, finds a study in The BMJ today.

Cancer stem cells in 'robbers cave' may explain poor prognosis for obese patients
University of Colorado Cancer Center study published in the journal Cell Stem Cell offers a compelling hypothesis explaining poor prognosis for obese cancer patients: researchers found that leukemia stem cells "hide" in fatty tissue, even transforming this tissue in ways that support their survival when challenged with chemotherapy.

Metastatic prostate cancer cases skyrocket
The number of new cases of metastatic prostate cancer climbed 72 percent in the past decade from 2004 to 2013, reports a new study. The report considers whether a recent trend of fewer men being screened may be contributing to the rise, or whether the disease has become more aggressive -- or both. The highest increase is among men ages 55 to 69, who could benefit the most from screening and early treatment.

IVF treatment not associated with increased risk of breast cancer
Among women undergoing fertility treatment in the Netherlands between 1980 and 1995, the use of in vitro fertilization compared with non-IVF treatment was not associated with increased risk of breast cancer after a median follow-up of 21 years, according to a study appearing in the July 19 issue of JAMA.

Radiologists do not face elevated risk of radiation-related mortality
Radiologists who graduated from medical school after 1940 do not face an increased risk of dying from radiation-related causes like cancer, according to a new study. Researchers said the findings point to the success of efforts to reduce occupational radiation doses over the past several decades.

Rare mutations in bowel cancer may identify patients with a better prognosis
A study focused on colorectal cancers and examined the presence of mutations in a gene that is essential for the accurate copying of DNA when cells divide, known as DNA polymerase epsilon (POLE). As a consequence of the defects in copying their DNA, these tumors accumulate a much higher number of additional mutations than other bowel cancers -- a characteristic that may explain an apparently enhanced immune response against them.

Prostate cancer: should screening test procedures be tightened again?
The number of new cases of men suffering from metastatic prostate cancer has risen significantly in a decade's time, and is 72 percent greater in the year 2013 compared to 2004. This is according to the authors Adam Weiner and Edward Schaeffer of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in the US. Their findings are published in Springer Nature's journal Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases.

Many skin cancer patients still too likely to sunburn
A recent study by researchers at Johns Hopkins concludes that a substantial number of people with a history of the most frequent kind of nonmelanoma skin cancers still get sunburned at the same rate as those without previous history, probably because they are not using sun-protective methods the right way or in the right amounts.

Genetic cause of 15 percent of colorectal cancer diagnoses identified

Genetic drivers of immune response to cancer discovered through 'big data' analysis
Scientists at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) have identified over 100 new genetic regions that affect the immune response to cancer. The findings, published in Cancer Immunology Research, could inform the development of future immunotherapies -- treatments that enhance the immune system's ability to kill tumors.

New method of calculating protein interaction to speed up drug development
Incorrect behavior of proteins in cells is a cause of many dangerous illnesses, such as cancer or the Alzheimer's disease. Understanding protein-protein interactions is essential for finding the cure to them. Scientists from MIPT have created a new method to predict possible protein configurations in cells, which is a hundred times faster than any of the previously developed algorithms. This fact makes the algorithm a viable substitution to an experimental approach.
