UCSD researchers study of E-cigarettes and mental health
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/13/2014) - Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine report that people living with depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions are twice as likely to have tried e-cigarettes and three times as likely to be current users of the controversial battery-powered nicotine-delivery devices, as people without mental health disorders.

Georgetown researchers find that children of nicotine-addicted parents are more likely to become heavy smokers
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/13/2014) - The more time a child is exposed to a parent addicted to smoking, the more likely the youth will not only take up cigarettes but also become a heavy smoker.

Study by University of Maryland finds that US cervical cancer rates are higher than previously reported, especially among older women
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/13/2014) - Cervical cancer rates in the United States are higher than previously believed, particularly among 65- to 69-year-old women and African-American women, according to a study led by a researcher at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

Dartmouth scientists identify genetic blueprint for cancers of the appendix
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/13/2014) - Using next generation DNA sequencing, Dartmouth scientists have identified potentially actionable mutations in cancers of the appendix.

NIH study demonstrates that a new cancer immunotherapy method could be effective against a wide range of cancers
NCI Press Release
(Posted: 05/08/2014) - A new method for using immunotherapy to specifically attack tumor cells that have mutations unique to a patient’s cancer has been developed by NCI scientists.

Moffitt researchers develop model for predicting therapy outcomes in prostate cancer with bone metastasis
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/05/2014) - Researchers have developed a model that simulates bone metastasis of prostate cancer which has the potential to rapidly assess experimental therapy outcomes and help develop personalized medicine for patients with this disease.

Hopkins researchers use human fat to fight brain cancer in mice
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/02/2014) - Johns Hopkins researchers use stem cells derived from human body fat to deliver treatment for deadly glioblastoma in mice.

Northwestern U researchers find that vitamin D deficiency could be linked to aggressive prostate cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/01/2014) - African-American and European-American men at high risk of prostate cancer have greater odds of being diagnosed with an aggressive form of the disease if they have a vitamin D deficiency.

Cold Spring Harbor researchers find immunogenic mutations in tumor genomes correlate with increased patient survival
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/01/2014) - Developing immunotherapies for cancer is challenging because of significant variability among tumors and diversity in human immune types. In a study published online today in Genome Research , researchers examined the largest collection of tumor samples to date to predict patient-specific survival

Hopkins researchers find that brain tumor cells penetrated by tiny, degradable particles can carry genetic instructions
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/30/2014) - Johns Hopkins biomedical engineers and neurosurgeons report that they have created tiny, biodegradable 'nanoparticles' able to carry DNA to brain cancer cells in mice.
