U of Utah study of rewiring metabolism shows that it could slow cancer growth
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/31/2014) - A University of Utah-led study reports that cancers select against a protein complex called the mitochondrial pyruvate carrier (MPC), and re-introduction of MPC in colon cancer cells impairs several properties of cancer, including growth.

Stanford researchers note that new molecular imaging technology could improve bladder-cancer detection
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/30/2014) - Researchers have developed a new imaging method that targets a protein known as CD47 in human bladder cancer.

MD Anderson researchers find that oxygen-deprived RNA molecules lead to tumor progression
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/30/2014) - New research at MD Anderson Cancer Center has unearthed a previously unknown phenomenon: Key regulatory molecules are decreased when deprived of oxygen which leads to increased cancer progression.

Stanford researchers find that genetic screening could reduce number of breast cancer cases
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/29/2014) - Genetic screening for breast cancer could help women make choices to limit the disease, Stanford researchers say.

Columbia U researchers find that generic medications boost adherence to breast cancer therapy
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/29/2014) - A study by Columbia University Medical Center researchers has found that the introduction of generic aromatase inhibitors, which are considerably less expensive than their brand-name counterparts, increased treatment adherence by 50 percent.

Indiana U researchers find that blood test could help to diagnose pancreatic cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/29/2014) - Indiana U researchers find that a blood test could help to diagnose pancreatic cancer. The disease is difficult to diagnose in early stages because the pancreas is hidden behind other organs such as the stomach, small intestine, liver, gallbladder, spleen and bile ducts.

UCSF researchers find that radiation exposure is linked to aggressive thyroid cancers
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/28/2014) - UCSF researchers have found that exposure to radioactive iodine is associated with more aggressive forms of thyroid cancer.

Fred Hutchinson researchers find that chest radiation to treat a rare childhood cancer increases patients' risk of breast cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/27/2014) - A new study has found that patients who received chest radiation for Wilms tumor, a rare childhood cancer, face an increased risk of developing breast cancer later in life due to their radiation exposure.

Dana-Farber researchers find that an unsuspected gene is frequently mutated in colorectal, endometrial cancers
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/27/2014) - Scientists say they have identified in about 20 percent of colorectal and endometrial cancers a genetic mutation that had been overlooked in recent large, comprehensive gene searches.

MD Anderson researchers find that cancer exosome 'micro factories' aid in cancer progression
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/24/2014) - Tiny nano-sized particles may play a major role in detecting and tracking breast cancer
