Purdue-designed tool helps guide brain cancer surgery
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 07/03/2014) - A tool to help brain surgeons test and more precisely remove cancerous tissue was successfully used during surgery, according to a Purdue University and Brigham and Women's Hospital study.

Mayo study finds that proton therapy has advantages over IMRT for advanced head and neck cancers
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 07/02/2014) - A new study by radiation oncologists at Mayo Clinic comparing the world’s literature on outcomes of proton beam therapy in the treatment of a variety of advanced head and neck cancers of the skull base compared to intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) has found that proton beam therapy significantly improved disease free survival and tumor control when compared to IMRT. The results appear in the journal Lancet Oncology.

NCI and Penn researchers find that HIV-infected people with early-stage cancers are more likely to go untreated for cancers
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 07/01/2014) - HIV-infected people diagnosed with cancer are two to four times more likely to go untreated for their cancer compared to uninfected cancer patients, according to a new, large retrospective study from researchers in Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) published online ahead of print in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

Dana-Farber and Brigham and Women's Hospital researchers engineer nanoparticles to prevent bone cancer, strengthen bones
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 07/01/2014) - A research collaboration between Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) has utilized nanomedicine technologies to develop a drug-delivery system that can precisely target and attack cancer cells in the bone, as well as increase bone strength and volume to prevent bone cancer progression. The study is published the week of June 30, 2014 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

NCI and Georgetown researchers find that a single gene separates aggressive and non-aggressive lymphatic system cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 06/30/2014) - For a rare form of cancer called thymoma, researchers have discovered a single gene defining the difference between a fast-growing tumor requiring aggressive treatment and a slow-growing tumor that doesn’t require extensive therapy.

UCSF researchers find that a sugary coating on cells may drive aggressive cancers
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 06/26/2014) - A research team led by UC San Francisco scientists has shown that cancer-induced structural changes in a sugary coating ensheathing cells can promote mechanical interactions that fuel tumor growth and metastasis.

Yale researchers find that continued use of low-dose aspirin may lower pancreatic cancer risk
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 06/26/2014) - For individuals with strong family histories of pancreatic cancer or who otherwise have been evaluated to be at substantially increased risk of pancreatic cancer, aspirin use could be part of a regimen designed to reduce their risk.

Where HIV genetic information is inserted into host DNA is linked to clonal growth and persistence of infected cells
NCI News Note
(Posted: 06/26/2014) - Based on an analysis of blood cells from five HIV-infected individuals, NCI researchers have identified more than 2,400 HIV DNA insertion sites. Analysis of these sites showed that there is extensive clonal expansion (growth) of HIV infected cells.

Dartmouth researchers find that youth indoor tanning increases early risk of skin cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 06/24/2014) - Dartmouth researchers have found that early exposure to the ultraviolet radiation lamps used for indoor tanning is related to an increased risk of developing basal cell carcinomas at a young age.

UAB research points to possible therapy because brain tumor cells move, damage tissue
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 06/23/2014) - This study provides insight into the mechanisms of how glioma cells spread throughout the brain as a devastating form of brain cancer, and potentially offers a tantalizing opportunity for therapy.
