Trial results show high remission rate in leukemia following immune cell therapy
NCI News Note
(Posted: 10/12/2014) - Children and young adults (age 1 to age 30) with chemotherapy-resistant B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) experienced high remission rates following treatment with an experimental immunotherapy. Results demonstrated that the immunotherapy treatment had anti-leukemia effects in patients and that the treatment was feasible and safe.

Thomas Jefferson U researchers find that hormone loss could be involved in colon cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/10/2014) - Like diabetes, colon cancer may be caused in part by the loss of one hormone, suggesting hormone replacement therapy could stall cancer formation.

Duke researchers find that elevated cholesterol and triglycerides may increase the risk for prostate cancer recurrence
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/10/2014) - Higher levels of total cholesterol and triglycerides, two types of fat, in the blood of men who underwent surgery for prostate cancer, were associated with increased risk for disease recurrence.

Columbia University Medical Center researchers find that a new computational approach finds gene that drives aggressive brain cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/10/2014) - Columbia University Medical Center researchers have combined existing computational tools with a new algorithm called DIGGIT, which 'walks' backward from the master regulators to find the genetic events that drive brain cancer.

MD Anderson researchers reveal genomic diversity of individual lung tumors
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/10/2014) - Known cancer-driving genomic aberrations in localized lung cancer appear to be so consistently present across tumors that a single biopsy of one region of the tumor is likely to identify most of them, according to a paper published today in Science.

Sanford-Burnham researchers find RNA molecules in urine, tissue that detect prostate cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/10/2014) - Researchers at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute have identified a set of RNA molecules that are detectable in tissue samples and urine of prostate cancer patients, but not in normal healthy individuals.

Thomas Jefferson U researchers find that circulating tumor cells provide genomic snapshot of breast cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/09/2014) - The genetic fingerprint of a metastatic cancer is constantly changing, which means that the therapy that may have stopped a patient's cancer growth today, won't necessarily work tomorrow.

UCSD researchers identify new at-risk group for gastrointestinal stromal tumors
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/08/2014) - Researchers at the UCSD School of Medicine have, for the first time, clearly defined the epidemiology of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), which occur primarily in the lining of the stomach and small intestine.

NCI scientists awarded National Medal of Technology and Innovation by President Obama
NCI News Note
(Posted: 10/07/2014) - President Obama announced that two NCI scientists would be recipients of the National Medal of Technology and Innovation -- the nation's highest honor for technological achievement. The honorees, John Schiller, Ph.D., Laboratory of Cellular Oncology (LCO), Center for Cancer Research, NCI, and Douglas Lowy, M.D., also from LCO and NCI deputy director, will receive their medals at a White House ceremony later in 2014.

U of Minnesota researchers find that microRNA is tied to colon cancer tumor growth
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/07/2014) - Researchers have identified microRNAs that may cause colon polyps from turning cancerous. The finding could help physicians provide more specialized, and earlier, treatment before colon cancer develops.
