Dana-Farber study suggests that targeting growth-driving cells within tumors, not the fastest-proliferating cells within tumors, may lead to more effective treatments
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 07/31/2014) - Researchers find that targeting growth-driving cells within tumors, not the fastest-proliferating cells within tumors, may lead to more effective treatments.

UPenn researchers find that acupuncture improves quality of life for breast cancer patients using aromatase inhibitors
NCI Cancer Center news
(Posted: 07/30/2014) - Use of electroacupuncture produces significant improvements in fatigue, anxiety and depression in as little as eight weeks for early stage breast cancer patients experiencing joint pain related to the use of aromatase inhibitors to treat breast cancer.

Penn team makes cancer glow to improve surgical outcomes
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 07/30/2014) - Viewed under infrared light, a tumor in a dog's lung glows green. The targeted dye ICG concentrates in cancerous tissues, allowing surgeons to tell normal tissue from tumor.

Hopkins researchers find that cell's recycling center is implicated in division decisions
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 07/29/2014) - Researchers at The Johns Hopkins University have identified a mechanism that overrides a cells’ warning signals, enabling cancers to continue to divide even without a robust blood supply.

Huntsman researchers discovery of protein's role in making platelets in mice may aid multiple myeloma patients
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 07/28/2014) - A University of Utah School of Medicine-led study in mice has identified a previously unknown but crucial component in the process to make platelets, a discovery that could help spare multiple myeloma patients from a dangerous side effect of the primary drug (bortezomib) used to treat their cancer.
