Adding chemotherapy following radiation treatment improves survival for adults with a slow-growing type of brain tumor
NCI Press Release
(Posted: 02/03/2014) - Adults with low-grade gliomas, a form of brain tumor, who received chemotherapy following completion of radiation therapy lived longer than patients who received radiation therapy alone, according to long-term follow-up results from a NIH-supported randomized controlled clinical trial. Low-grade gliomas have a more indolent or slower growing behavior and better outcome compared to the more common high-grade gliomas such as glioblastoma. [Image copyright Mayo Clinic, 2012]

Hopkins researchers find that a vaccine used to treat cervical precancers can trigger an immune cell response
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/31/2014) - Preliminary results of a small clinical trial show that a vaccine used to treat women with high-grade precancerous cervical lesions triggers an immune cell response within the damaged tissue itself.

UCSD researchers find that DNA damage can affect Golgi bodies in a cell
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/31/2014) - In studying the impact of DNA damage on the Golgi, a research team from USCD have discovered a novel pathway activated by DNA damage.

Mayo Clinic researchers find that new data contradict current recommendations for management of breast biopsy abnormalities
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/30/2014) - Contrary to existing understanding, long-term follow-up of patients with two types of breast tissue abnormalities suggests that both types of abnormalities have the same potential to progress to breast cancer.

NCI launches trial to assess the utility of genetic sequencing to improve patient outcomes
NCI Press Release
(Posted: 01/30/2014) - A pilot trial to assess whether assigning treatment based on specific gene mutations can provide benefit to patients with metastatic solid tumors is being launched this month by the NCI. The Molecular Profiling based Assignment of Cancer Therapeutics, or M-PACT, trial is one of the first to use a randomized trial design to assess if assigning treatment based on genetic screening can improve the rate and duration of response in patients with advanced solid tumors.

University of Colorado researchers find method that lets ALK+ lung cancer patients continue crizotinib
NCI Press Release
(Posted: 01/29/2014) - Patients taking crizotinib for ALK+ non-small cell lung cancer may safely and durably use up to three courses of targeted radiation therapy to eradicate pockets of drug-resistant disease.

TCGA bladder cancer study reveals potential drug targets, similarities to several cancers
NCI Press Release
(Posted: 01/29/2014) - Investigators with TCGA have identified new potential therapeutic targets for a major form of bladder cancer, including important genes and pathways that are disrupted in the disease. They also discovered that, at the molecular level, some subtypes of bladder cancer resemble subtypes of breast, head and neck and lung cancers, suggesting similar routes of development.
