UCSD scientists find gene mutation for aggressive form of pancreatic cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/27/2014) - Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have identified a mutated gene common to adenosquamous carcinoma tumors – the first known unique molecular signature for this rare, but particularly virulent, form of pancreatic cancer.

MD Anderson scientists discover potential new target for cancer immunotherapy
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/27/2014) - Scientists have found a way to target elusive cells that suppress immune response, depleting them with peptides that spare other important cells and shrink tumors in preclinical experiments.

Albert Einstein College of Medicine study identifies how signals trigger cancer cells to spread
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/27/2014) - Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have discovered a signaling pathway in cancer cells that controls their ability to invade nearby tissues in a finely orchestrated manner.

Memorial Sloan-Kettering study suggests double mastectomy often done unnecessarily
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/23/2014) - A new study suggests double mastectomies may be performed unnecessarily in many women.

Cold Spring Harbor team validates potential new way to treat HER2-positive breast cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/22/2014) - Scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory today report a discovery that they hope will lead to the development of a powerful new way of treating an aggressive form of breast cancer.

Mayo Clinic study shows virotherapy is promising against multiple myeloma
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/22/2014) - In a proof of principle clinical trial, Mayo Clinic researchers have demonstrated that virotherapy — destroying cancer with a virus that infects and kills cancer cells but spares normal tissues — can be effective against the deadly cancer multiple myeloma.

Mayo Clinic researchers find that a molecule is linked to aggressive pancreatic cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/21/2014) - One sub-form, Rac1b, played a role in pancreatic cancer. The Mayo team began their research by investigating why pancreatic cancer cells produce matrix metalloproteinases.

Roswell Park researchers find that some electronic cigarettes may increase health risks
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/19/2014) - High-voltage electronic cigarettes may expose users to increased levels of toxic chemicals, including formaldehyde and acetaldehyde.

St. Jude studies reveal how key cancer-fighting protein is held in check
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/16/2014) - St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital analysis reveals how the protein p53, which triggers cancer cells to commit suicide, attaches to its regulatory molecule.

USC and NYU scientists develop a molecule to block cancer growth in mice
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/14/2014) - In a mouse study, researchers used a molecule to disrupt two key protein interactions that contribute to cancer growth.
