Stanford study highlights technique that allows for radiation-free detection of tumors
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 02/19/2014) - Researchers have developed a way to scan young cancer patients' bodies for tumors without exposing them to radiation, which could reduce their risk of developing secondary cancers.

NIH study confirms risk factors for male breast cancer
NCI News Note
(Posted: 02/19/2014) - Pooled data from studies of about 2,400 men with breast cancer and 52,000 men without breast cancer confirmed that risk factors for male breast cancer include obesity, a rare genetic condition called Klinefelter syndrome, and gynecomastia.

University of Michigan finding points to potential options for attacking stem cells in triple-negative breast cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 02/18/2014) - New research finds that a protein that fuels an inflammatory pathway does not turn off in breast cancer, resulting in an increase in cancer stem cells.

Duke researchers find that a natural compound can attack HER2 positive breast cancer cells
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 02/18/2014) - A common compound known to fight lymphoma and skin conditions actually has a second method of action that makes it particularly deadly against certain aggressive breast tumors.

UCLA study confirms method for detecting spread of deadly skin cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 02/14/2014) - The spreading of cancer cells to lymph nodes is tracked through lymphatic system and advancements to this process can now help doctors better determine which patients benefit.

Georgetown University researchers point to 55 genes linked to tumor suppressor to predict breast cancer survival
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 02/14/2014) - A panel of 55 genes, almost all of which are impacted by the loss of a particular protein, appears to predict if breast cancer will become invasive, leading to poorer survival.

New University of Kentucky study shows potential for targeting aggressive breast cancers
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 02/12/2014) - A new study led by University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center researcher Peter Zhou may provide an effective approach for treating triple-negative breast cancer.

UCSD researchers find that a large number of people who say they use cigarettes, don't consider themselves to be smokers
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 02/12/2014) - Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine report there is a surprisingly large number of people who say they use cigarettes, but don't consider themselves to be "smokers."

NYU scientists note weakness of a common cancer gene
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 02/11/2014) - NYU Langone Medical Center researchers have found a biological weakness in the workings of the most commonly mutated gene involved in human cancers, known as mutant K-Ras, which they say can be exploited by drug chemotherapies to thwart tumor growth.

Dana-Farber researchers report that a normal enzyme aids a mutant one to fuel blood cancer’s growth
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 02/11/2014) - A normal enzyme called SYK pairs with FLT3, the most commonly mutated enzyme found in acute myelogenous leukemia, to promote progression of the cancer and its resistance to treatment with FLT3-blocking drugs, which may explain relatively poor results in clinical studies.
