Indicators related to lung cancer recurrence, metastases and survival can inform treatment of patients
NCI News Note
(Posted: 03/23/2015) - This study describes prognostic factors for lung cancer spread and recurrence, as well as subsequent risk of death from the disease. The investigators observed that regardless of cancer stage, grade, or type of lung cancer, patients in the study were more likely to have distant metastasis than local recurrence.

Washington U researchers find that kidney cancer could be detected early with urine test
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 03/19/2015) - Washington University School of Medicine researchers have developed a noninvasive method to screen for kidney cancer by measuring the presence of proteins in the urine.

St. Jude scientists trace genomic evolution of high-risk leukemia
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 03/19/2015) - Whole exome sequencing of 20 pediatric ALL patients yielded important insights into the genetic basis of ALL treatment failure.

Dartmouth doctors say women with atypia or DCIS should seek second opinions after breast biopsies
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 03/19/2015) - While doctors almost always agree on a pathological diagnosis of invasive breast cancer, there is room for improvement when diagnosing atypia (or atypical ductal hyperplasia-ADH) and DCIS (ductal carcinoma in-situ).

U of Michigan study suggests precision medicine for adrenal cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 03/19/2015) - In a randomized phase 3 trial, adrenal cancer patients receiving the investigational drug linsitinib fared no better than patients receiving a placebo.

Fred Hutchinson researchers find that link between aspirin, NSAIDs and colon cancer prevention may hinge on genetic variations
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 03/18/2015) - A new study has discovered that the benefits of using aspirin and NSAIDs like ibuprofen to cut colorectal cancer risk actually hinge on a person’s particular DNA.

Stanford scientists discover how to change human leukemia cells in lab into harmless immune cells
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 03/17/2015) - After a chance observation in the lab, researchers found a method that can force dangerous leukemia cells in the lab to mature into harmless immune cells called macrophages.

Lombardi Cancer Center researchers observe when cancer cells stop acting like cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 03/17/2015) - Cancer cells crowded tightly together suddenly surrender their desire to spread, and this change of heart is related to a cellular pathway that controls organ size.

Washington University researchers find that mouse stem cells lurking in tumors can resist treatment​​​​
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 03/13/2015) - A mouse study at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis shows that slow-growing tumors have treatment-resistant stem cells.

U of Michigan researchers find that Naproxen plus acid blocking drug shows promise in preventing bladder cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 03/11/2015) - The anti-inflammatory class of drugs NSAIDs have shown great promise in preventing cancers including colon, esophagus and skin. However, they can increase the risks of heart attacks, ulcers and rare but potentially life-threatening bleeds. A new study suggests there may be ways to reduce these dangerous side effects.
