Stanford researchers find that genetic screening could reduce number of breast cancer cases
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/29/2014) - Genetic screening for breast cancer could help women make choices to limit the disease, Stanford researchers say.

Columbia U researchers find that generic medications boost adherence to breast cancer therapy
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/29/2014) - A study by Columbia University Medical Center researchers has found that the introduction of generic aromatase inhibitors, which are considerably less expensive than their brand-name counterparts, increased treatment adherence by 50 percent.

Indiana U researchers find that blood test could help to diagnose pancreatic cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/29/2014) - Indiana U researchers find that a blood test could help to diagnose pancreatic cancer. The disease is difficult to diagnose in early stages because the pancreas is hidden behind other organs such as the stomach, small intestine, liver, gallbladder, spleen and bile ducts.

UCSF researchers find that radiation exposure is linked to aggressive thyroid cancers
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/28/2014) - UCSF researchers have found that exposure to radioactive iodine is associated with more aggressive forms of thyroid cancer.

Fred Hutchinson researchers find that chest radiation to treat a rare childhood cancer increases patients' risk of breast cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/27/2014) - A new study has found that patients who received chest radiation for Wilms tumor, a rare childhood cancer, face an increased risk of developing breast cancer later in life due to their radiation exposure.

Dana-Farber researchers find that an unsuspected gene is frequently mutated in colorectal, endometrial cancers
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/27/2014) - Scientists say they have identified in about 20 percent of colorectal and endometrial cancers a genetic mutation that had been overlooked in recent large, comprehensive gene searches.

MD Anderson researchers find that cancer exosome 'micro factories' aid in cancer progression
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/24/2014) - Tiny nano-sized particles may play a major role in detecting and tracking breast cancer

St. Jude researchers find that experimental breast cancer drug holds promise in combination therapy for Ewing sarcoma
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/24/2014) - St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital researchers have identified a promising new triple-drug combination therapy that exploits DNA repair problem in Ewing sarcoma tumors.

MIT researchers undertake fast modeling of cancer mutations in mice
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/23/2014) - MIT researchers have developed a new way to model the effects of genetic mutations in mice. Their approach, based on the genome-editing technique known as CRISPR, is much faster than existing strategies, which require genetically engineering mice that carry the cancerous mutations.

U of Chicago researchers find that new anti-cancer drug shows few side effects in mice
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 10/23/2014) - A new drug, known as OTS964, may eradicate aggressive human lung cancers transplanted into mice, according to a report in Science Translational Medicine.
