Chronic inflammation leads to imbalanced blood system and potentially cancer risk
A study in Nature Cell Biology shows that chronic exposure to interleukin-1 causes HSCs to produce cells needed to fight infection and repair injury, but at the expense of their own ability to self-renew and maintain a healthy blood system. Elevated interleukin-1 (IL-1) accompanies the chronic inflammation associated with human conditions including obesity, diabetes and autoimmune disorders.

Top tobacco control experts to FDA: Studies of e-cigs suggest more benefit than harm
Seven top international tobacco control experts are prompting regulators at the US Food and Drug Administration to have a broad 'open-minded' perspective when it comes to regulating vaporized nicotine products, especially e-cigarettes.

Researchers find potential new treatment target for deadly brain cancer
A team of researchers has found a key player in brain tumor formation that may lead to new therapies for a deadly and incurable cancer. The study published in Nature Neuroscience is the first to show that a protein called OSMR (Oncostatin M Receptor) is required for glioblastoma tumours to form. Glioblastoma is one of the most deadly cancers, resistant to radiation, chemotherapy and difficult to remove with surgery.

Organ recipients with previous cancers linked to higher death rates, new cancers
People who had cancer before receiving an organ transplant were more likely to die of any cause, die of cancer or develop a new cancer than organ recipients who did not previously have cancer, a new paper has found.

Risk of liver cancer from hepatitis B persists even after clearing the virus
Long-term infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) can cause liver inflammation and increase the risk of liver cancer. Researchers from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, however, found that resolving HBV infection was not associated with reduced rates of liver cancer.

Cell death mechanism may -- paradoxically -- enable aggressive pancreatic cells to live on
The most aggressive form of pancreatic cancer -- often described as one of the hardest malignancies to diagnose and treat -- thrives in the presence of neighboring tumor cells undergoing a particular form of 'orchestrated cell death.' This is according to a major study from researchers at NYU Langone's Perlmutter Cancer Center and recently published in the journal Nature.

Successful laboratory test of photoswitchable anti-tumor agent
Photoswitchable agents might reduce side effects of a chemotherapy. So far, photodynamic therapies have been dependent on oxygen in the tissue. But hardly any oxygen exists in malignant, rapidly growing tumors. A group of researchers of KIT and the University of Kiev has now developed a photo-switchable molecule as a basis of an oxygen-independent method. Their successful laboratory tests on tumors are reported in the journal Angewandte Chemie.

Estrobolome disparities may lead to developing biomarkers that could mitigate cancer risk
Investigating disparities in the composition of the estrobolome, the gut bacterial genes capable of metabolizing estrogens in both healthy individuals and in women diagnosed with estrogen-driven breast cancer may lead to the development of microbiome-based biomarkers that could help mitigate the risk of certain cancers, according to a review paper published April 22 in the JNCI: Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

No increased risk of fatal CV events for breast cancer patients on newer hormone therapy
In a new study from Kaiser Permanente, researchers found the use of aromatase inhibitors, hormone-therapy drugs used to treat patients with breast cancer, was not associated with an increased risk of fatal cardiovascular events, including heart attacks or stroke, compared with tamoxifen, another commonly prescribed anti-cancer drug that works on hormones and which has been associated with a serious risk of stroke.

Researchers identify new mechanism to target 'undruggable' cancer gene
RAS genes are mutated in more than 30 percent of human cancers and represent one of the most sought-after cancer targets for drug developers. A new study published in the April 20 issue of the journal Cell by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai led by E. Premkumar Reddy, Ph.D., has identified a new mechanism for targeting this important cancer gene.

The cell copying machine: How daughters look like their mothers
Tiny structures in our cells, called centrioles, control both cell division and motility. The number of these structures is highly monitored, with deviations causing infertility, microcephaly and cancer. A research team, from Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciencia, led by Monica Bettencourt-Dias, uncovered the mechanism by which mother cells know that they provide the right number of centrioles to their daughters, in a study now published in the scientific journal Current Biology.

VCU Massey researchers uncover process that drives prostate cancer metastasis
Researchers at VCU Massey Cancer Center have uncovered a novel function of the gene PLK1 (polo-like kinase 1) that helps prostate cancer cells metastasize (spread) to other parts of the body. This mechanism highlights new potential targets for cancer therapies and challenges the previous understanding of PLK1's role in cancer growth and progression.
