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

St. Jude researchers find that experimental breast cancer drug holds promise in combination therapy for Ewing sarcoma
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/24/2014) - St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital researchers have identified a promising new triple-drug combination therapy that exploits DNA repair problem in Ewing sarcoma tumors.

MIT researchers undertake fast modeling of cancer mutations in mice
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/23/2014) - MIT researchers have developed a new way to model the effects of genetic mutations in mice. Their approach, based on the genome-editing technique known as CRISPR, is much faster than existing strategies, which require genetically engineering mice that carry the cancerous mutations.

U of Chicago researchers find that new anti-cancer drug shows few side effects in mice
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/23/2014) - A new drug, known as OTS964, may eradicate aggressive human lung cancers transplanted into mice, according to a report in Science Translational Medicine.

Dana-Farber and other researchers find that silencing the speech gene FOXP2 causes breast cancer cells to metastasize
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/23/2014) - A research team led by investigators at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has identified an unexpected link between a transcription factor known to regulate speech and language development and metastatic colonization of breast cancer.

TCGA study improves understanding of genetic drivers of thyroid cancer
NCI News Note
(Posted: 10/23/2014) - A comprehensive analysis of the genomes of nearly 500 papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTC) – the most common form of thyroid cancer – has provided new insights into the roles of frequently mutated cancer genes and other genomic alterations that drive disease development, information that may help improve diagnosis and treatment. Findings confirmed that PTCs are driven primarily by mutations in one of two cancer-associated genes: BRAF (and a particular BRAF mutation noted as V600E ) or RAS.

UNC scientists discover hidden subpopulation of melanoma cells
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/22/2014) - UNC researchers discover a subpopulation of melanoma cancer cells in blood vessels of tumors.
