Roswell Park study finds that lack of insurance coverage is a barrier to lung cancer screening
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/03/2014) - The majority of current and former smokers would welcome screenings for lung cancer if their insurance covered the spiral computed tomography (CT) scans.

Harvard researchers analyze the mammography dilemma
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/03/2014) - Harvard researchers explored guidance on how best to individualize their approach to breast cancer screening.

UNC researchers show cancer chemotherapy accelerates molecular aging
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/01/2014) - Using a test developed at UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center to determine molecular aging, UNC oncologists have directly measured the impact of anti-cancer chemotherapy drugs on biological aging.

Dartmouth researchers find that certain genetic variants may help identify patients at increased risk of bladder cancer recurrence
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/01/2014) - A new study suggests that certain inherited DNA sequences may affect a bladder cancer patient’s prognosis.

Dana-Farber study finds that oncologists differ widely on offering cancer gene testing
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 03/25/2014) - A study by researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute shows that not all doctors are ready to embrace tests that look for hundreds of DNA changes in patients' tumor samples, while others plan to offer this type of cancer gene testing to most of their patients.
