Dana-Farber researchers take new approach to stop 'most wanted' cancer protein
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 11/10/2014) - Researchers at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center have found a way to defeat one of the most tantalizing yet elusive target proteins in cancer cells – employing a strategy that turns the protein’s own molecular machinations against it. In a study published online by the journal Cell, the scientists used a specially crafted compound to disrupt the protein’s ability to rev up its own production and that of other proteins involved in tumor cell growth.

UCLA study finds tai chi reduces inflammation in breast cancer survivors
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 11/07/2014) - UCLA researchers have discovered that the Chinese practice of tai chi can reduce inflammation in people who have had breast cancer, thereby reducing a risk factor for the recurrence of the cancer.

MD Anderson researchers find that the number of younger patients with newly diagnosed colorectal cancer may nearly double by 2030
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 11/06/2014) - In the next 15 years, more than one in 10 colon cancers and nearly one in four rectal cancers will be diagnosed in patients younger than the traditional screening age, according to researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Dana-Farber researchers find that immune booster combined with checkpoint blocker improves survival in metastatic melanoma
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 11/05/2014) - Researchers reported survival of patients with advanced melanoma was improved when they received an immune stimulant along with a checkpoint blocker immunotherapy drug.

U of Pennsylvania studies show exercise therapy, acupuncture benefit breast cancer survivors
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 11/04/2014) - Two new studies from the Abramson Cancer Center and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania on breast cancer survivors struggling with cancer-related pain and swelling, and point to ways to enhance muscular strength and body image.

U Pittsburgh researchers find that NSAIDs prevent colon cancer by inducing death of intestinal stem cells that have mutation
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 11/04/2014) - Aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) protect against the development of colorectal cancer by inducing cell suicide pathways in intestinal stem cells that carry a certain mutated and dysfunctional gene, according to a new study led by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and the School of Medicine.

St Jude researchers find that telephone counseling leads more adult childhood cancer survivors to get heart screenings
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 11/04/2014) - St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital-led national study finds that brief telephone counseling by advanced-practice nurses prompts more childhood cancer survivors to get recommended heart screenings.

UC Davis researchers find that obesity is a factor in immunotherapy toxicity in mice
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 11/04/2014) - New research suggests that the accumulation of fat in older mice is responsible for their increased susceptibility to deadly inflammation in response to anti-cancer immunotherapy.

U of Utah study of rewiring metabolism shows that it could slow cancer growth
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/31/2014) - A University of Utah-led study reports that cancers select against a protein complex called the mitochondrial pyruvate carrier (MPC), and re-introduction of MPC in colon cancer cells impairs several properties of cancer, including growth.

Stanford researchers note that new molecular imaging technology could improve bladder-cancer detection
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/30/2014) - Researchers have developed a new imaging method that targets a protein known as CD47 in human bladder cancer.
