UCSD research shows that enzymes believed to promote cancer actually suppress tumors
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/23/2015) - A team of scientists at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine say enzymes long categorized as promoting cancer may, in fact, be tumor suppressors and that current clinical efforts to develop inhibitor-based drugs should instead focus on restoring the enzymes' activities.

Hopkins researchers find that a new cancer-fighting strategy would harden cells to prevent metastasis
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/21/2015) - Existing cancer therapies are geared toward massacring tumor cells, but Johns Hopkins researchers propose a different strategy: subtly hardening cancer cells to prevent them from invading new areas of the body.

U Penn researchers find that mutated ATRX gene linked to brain tumors is a potential biomarker for rare adrenal tumors too
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/21/2015) - For the first time, researchers at Penn's Abramson Cancer Center have found that a mutation in the ATRX may serve as a much-needed biomarker for the pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas that become malignant.

Dana-Farber study shows that vitamin D protects against colorectal cancer by boosting the immune system
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/16/2015) - A new study by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute investigators demonstrates that vitamin D can protect some people with colorectal cancer by perking up the immune system's vigilance against tumor cells.

(Posted: 01/16/2015) - New research from the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center helps explain why pancreatic cancer is so lethal, with fewer than one-third of patients surviving even early stage disease.

UCLA study shows children of melanoma survivors need better protection from sun's harmful rays
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/15/2015) - UCLA researchers find that children of melanoma survivors are not being optimally protected against UV radiation. Survey results found 43 percent of melanoma survivors say their child had a sunburn in the past year.
