Purdue U researchers find that gold nanoparticles help target, quantify breast cancer gene segments in a living cell
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/23/2014) - Purdue University researchers have developed a way to detect and measure cancer levels in a living cell by using tiny gold particles with tails of synthetic DNA.

Ohio State researchers find that a gene within a gene contributes to the aggressiveness of acute myeloid leukemia
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/22/2014) - High expression of a gene called BAALC is known to be associated with poor survival of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients. BAALC has a second smaller gene embedded within it that is also active.

Dana-Farber researchers uncover link between Down syndrome and leukemia
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/21/2014) - A team of researchers led by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute investigators has uncovered a connection between people with Down syndrome and having a heightened risk of developing acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) during childhood.

Hopkins researchers find that chronic inflammation is linked to high-grade prostate cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/21/2014) - Men with chronic inflammation in non-cancerous prostate tissue may have nearly twice the risk of actually having prostate cancer.

Stanford scientists identify source of most cases of invasive bladder cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/21/2014) - A single type of cell in the lining of the bladder is responsible for most cases of invasive bladder cancer. The study may help explain why many human bladder cancers recur after therapy.

UCSD scientists find that cancer stem cells are linked to drug resistance
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/21/2014) - UCSD researchers have discovered a molecule, or biomarker, called CD61 on the surface of drug-resistant tumors that appears responsible for inducing tumor metastasis by enhancing the stem cell-like properties of cancer cells.

Johns Hopkins researchers find that chronic inflammation is linked to high-grade prostate cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/18/2014) - Men who show signs of chronic inflammation in non-cancerous prostate tissue may have nearly twice the risk of actually having prostate cancer than those with no inflammation, according to results of a new study led by researchers from the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center.

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center researchers find a new gene variant that increases the risk of colorectal cancer from eating processed meat
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/18/2014) - A common genetic variant that affects one in three people appears to significantly increase the risk of colorectal cancer from the consumption of processed meat.

Ohio State study identifies a likely key driver of colorectal cancer development and progression
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/17/2014) - New targets are needed for agents that will more effectively treat colorectal cancer. This study identifies a molecule that is probably a key driver of colorectal cancer.

Stanford study finds that gene panel effectively screens dozens of genes for cancer-associated mutations
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/15/2014) - A new study shows that multiple-gene panels can be a quick, low-cost screening method to look for a few gene variants known to be associated with specific types of cancer.
