Poliovirus kills off cancer cells, stops tumor regrowth

Poliovirus kills off cancer cells, stops tumor regrowth

Researchers from Duke University in Durham, NC, may have discovered a new way of killing off cancer cells. The team was jointly led by Dr. Matthias Gromeier, a professor in the Department of Neurosurgery, and Prof. Smita Nair, who is an immunologist in the Department of Surgery. The new research – which is published in the journal Science Translational […]

New inhibitor brings new hope for aggressive triple receptor-negative breast cancer

New inhibitor brings new hope for aggressive triple receptor-negative breast cancer

Scientists from the cluster of excellence BIOSS Centre for Biological Signalling Studies at the University of Freiburg and the Freiburg University Medical Center have shown that inhibiting the epigenetic regulator KDM4 might offer a potential novel treatment option for breast cancer patients. They used a newly established cell model that enables scientists to isolate cancer […]

New Low-Cost Cancer Treatment Could Kill Tumors With Ethanol

New Low-Cost Cancer Treatment Could Kill Tumors With Ethanol

ETHANOL-BASED CANCER TREATMENTS Researchers from Duke University have achieved a 100 percent cure rate for squamous cell carcinoma in a hamster model by injecting an ethanol-based gel directly into tumors. The work, published in Nature Scientific Reports, was inspired by an existing low-cost therapy called ethanol ablation, and improves the method to work on a wider variety of tumors. Ethanol […]

Z-endoxifen shows promise as new treatment for common breast cancer type

Z-endoxifen shows promise as new treatment for common breast cancer type

Z-endoxifen, a potent derivative of the drug tamoxifen, could itself be a new treatment for the most common form of breast cancer in women with metastatic disease. This finding was reported from a clinical trial conducted by researchers at Mayo Clinic and the National Cancer Institute, and published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. The final […]

Breast cancer ‘game changer’ here – but only for women who can afford it

Breast cancer ‘game changer’ here – but only for women who can afford it

A new drug described as a “game changer” for women with a common and incurable type of breast cancer is now available in New Zealand – but only to those who can afford it. Breast cancer charity Breast Cancer Aotearoa Coalition [BCAC] chairwoman Libby Burgess said Medsafe NZ had just approved the use of Ibrance […]

Aggressive Breast Cancers May Contribute to Racial Survival Disparities

Aggressive Breast Cancers May Contribute to Racial Survival Disparities

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — A higher proportion of aggressive breast cancer subtypes are seen in black women, University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers have found. The study findings help to explain a gap in mortality that exists between black and white women with breast cancer, and could lead to improved treatment approaches […]

Study: History of Gum Disease Increases Cancer Risk in Older Women

Study: History of Gum Disease Increases Cancer Risk in Older Women

BUFFALO, N.Y. – Postmenopausal women who have a history of gum disease also have a higher risk of cancer, according to a new study of more than 65,000 women. The study, led by researchers at the University at Buffalo, is the first national study of its kind involving U.S. women, and the first to focus […]

Humanmmade peptides reduce breast cancer’s spread

Humanmmade peptides reduce breast cancer’s spread

Humanmade peptides that directly disrupt the inner workings of a gene known to support cancer’s spread significantly reduce metastasis in a mouse model of breast cancer, scientists say. The WASF3 gene helps cancer become mobile and invasive. Humanmade peptides that can come between the WASF3 protein and two other proteins that regulate its stability and […]

Female cancer survivors are a third less likely to get pregnant

Female cancer survivors are a third less likely to get pregnant

July 3 (UPI) — Research shows that female cancer survivors are one-third less likely to become pregnant compared to women in the general population. A large population study linked all cancers diagnosed in Scotland between 1981 and 2012 to subsequent pregnancies, revealing that women and girls younger than 39 who were cancer survivors were 38 percent […]

Does MRI plus mammography improve detection of new breast cancer after breast conservation therapy?

Does MRI plus mammography improve detection of new breast cancer after breast conservation therapy?

A new article published by JAMA Oncology compares outcomes for combined mammography and MRI or ultrasonography screenings for new breast cancers in women who have previously undergone breast conservation surgery and radiotherapy for breast cancer initially diagnosed at 50 or younger. Women who are treated with breast conservation surgery and radiotherapy remain at an increased […]
