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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Long-term follow-up of risk of cancer among twins
In a long-term follow-up study among approximately 200,000 Nordic twin individuals, there was an increased cancer risk in twins whose co-twin was diagnosed with cancer, with an increased risk for cancer overall and for specific types of cancer, including prostate, melanoma, breast, ovary, and uterus, according to a study in the Jan. 5 issue of JAMA.

A new phase III trial with positive results is taking intravaginal DHEA a step closer to governmental approval. The formulation could provide women who cannot or do not wish to use intravaginal estrogen with an effective vaginal alternative for easing vaginal symptoms and pain with sex after menopause. The trial results were published online today in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society.

CNIO finds a possible new pharmacological target for one of the most important and elusive oncogenes
MYC is altered in more than half of human cancers, and it is often associated with very aggressive tumors. Researchers have identified a second gene, called BPTF, that has an important role in the chain of molecular events that allow MYC to function, therefore revealing itself as a possible new therapeutic target.

Prostate cancer surveillance criteria may not be accurate for African American men
A new study published in The Journal of Urology revealed that African American men with Gleason score 3+3=6 prostate cancer (PCa) produce less prostate specific antigen (PSA) and have significantly lower PSA density (PSAD) than Caucasian men. These findings could have important implications when selecting patients for inclusion in active PCa surveillance programs.

Improving access to clinical trials when biopsies are required
The requirement for tumor tissue specimens and associated analyses in order to participate in clinical trials appears to be a significant barrier to clinical trial enrollment and may delay treatment. Potential solutions to reducing or eliminating these barriers include routine tissue banking at diagnosis, easing use of available diagnostic samples, development of less invasive tests, faster turnaround time at central laboratories or allowing for local testing and more resources for timely tissue collection.
