UPenn researchers find radiation plus hormone therapy prolongs survival for older men with prostate cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/06/2015) - Adding radiation treatment to hormone therapy saves more lives among older men with locally advanced prostate therapy than hormone therapy alone, according to a new study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology this week from Penn Medicine researchers.

Hopkins researchers find cancer is caused mainly by random mutations that occur during cell division
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/05/2015) - Scientists from the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center have created a statistical model that measures the proportion of cancer incidence, across many tissue types, caused mainly by random mutations that occur when stem cells divide.

Hopkins researchers find that risk for leukemia after treatment for early-stage breast cancer higher than reported
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 12/24/2014) - The risk of developing leukemia after radiation therapy or chemotherapy for early stage breast cancer remains very small, but it is twice as high as previously reported.

A key molecular defect in a childhood gastrointestinal tumor may have important diagnostic implications
NCI News Note
(Posted: 12/24/2014) - NCI scientists have identified a key molecular defect in a tumor in children known as gastrointestinal stromal tumor, or GIST, that may have important diagnostic implications.

U of Michigan researchers discover new genetic anomalies in lung cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 12/22/2014) - By analyzing the DNA and RNA of lung cancers, researchers found that patients whose tumors contained a large number of gene fusions had worse outcomes than patients with fewer gene fusions.

St. Jude researchers identify cells that enhance tumor growth and suppress anti-cancer immune attack
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 12/18/2014) - Scientists used a novel strategy to find the white blood cells that tumors rely on to suppress the immune response.

UCLA researchers find that lens-free microscope can detect cancer at the cellular level
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 12/18/2014) - UCLA researchers have developed a lens-free microscope that can be used to detect the presence of cancer or other cell-level abnormalities with the same accuracy as larger and more expensive optical microscopes.

Thomas Jefferson U researchers explore how prostate cancer forms
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 12/18/2014) - The cause of prostate cancer may be linked to Parkinson's disease through a common enzyme.

Roswell Park study suggests additional applications for FL118 as personalized therapy for cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 12/16/2014) - Study results showed that FL118 can also activate the p53 tumor-suppressor pathway in cancer cells, encouraging cell senescence, or aging.

Ohio State researchers find that long noncoding RNAs are a novel prognostic marker in older patients with acute leukemia
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 12/16/2014) - A new study shows that patterns of molecules called long noncoding RNAs might help doctors choose the least toxic, most effective treatment for many older patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
