(Posted: 04/18/2014) - A common genetic variant that affects one in three people appears to significantly increase the risk of colorectal cancer from the consumption of processed meat.

Johns Hopkins researchers find that chronic inflammation is linked to high-grade prostate cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/18/2014) - Men who show signs of chronic inflammation in non-cancerous prostate tissue may have nearly twice the risk of actually having prostate cancer than those with no inflammation, according to results of a new study led by researchers from the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center.

Ohio State study identifies a likely key driver of colorectal cancer development and progression
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/17/2014) - New targets are needed for agents that will more effectively treat colorectal cancer. This study identifies a molecule that is probably a key driver of colorectal cancer.

Stanford study finds that gene panel effectively screens dozens of genes for cancer-associated mutations

Study in mice shows that an aggressive type of breast cancer is linked to an inflammatory protein
NCI News Note
(Posted: 04/14/2014) - Aberrant expression of an inflammatory protein, nitric oxide synthase 2 (NOS2), may enhance the progression and metastasis of an aggressive and less common form of breast cancer, known as the estrogen receptor-negative type of disease.
