Award winning researchers reveal potential new role for Glivec

...r called dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) a malignant tumour that occurs in the second layer of the skin (the dermis)[1]. He said that complete control of the disease was achieved in eight out of 10 patients in a Phase II trial either through imatinib alone or imatinib plus surgery. The research team ar...

$7.5 Million grant to Yale researchers for role of viruses in cancer

In the current granting period, the DiMaio laboratory will continue to dissect the pathways activated when HPV oncogenes are repressed in cervical cancer cells. Epstein-Ba...

Targeted therapy knocks out pediatric brain cancer in mice

...subset of medulloblastoma, the most common type of malignant pediatric brain tumor. The finding is encouraging in that such precise, targeted therapies may someday replace traditional treatments that can have overwhelmingly negative side effects for pediatric cancer patients. The research is published in the S...

New anti-inflammatory strategy for cancer therapy identified by UCSD researchers

...ancer showed that cancer metastasis, the growth of malignant tumors beyond the original site, was halted with inhibition of either one of two naturally occurring substances, a pro-inflammatory protein called nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB) or an inflammatory mediator called tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα...

IBD (Crohn's, Colitis) 'joins' cancer, inflammatory diseases in associated blood vessel growth

...sis of cancer because it increases blood supply to malignant tissue. Relatively recently, a novel pathogenic role of angiogenesis has been established for such chronic inflammatory diseases as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and atherosclerosis. As a result, suppressing neoangiogenesis is being investigated a...

Analysis of gene expression in lymphoid cells can determine lymphoma cancer

Lymphomas are generally difficult to diagnose since no single test currently exists to sufficiently establish their presence. Clinical practice often revolves around a patho...

Anti-cancer compound in vegetables found to block late-stage breast-cancer cell growth

Within hours, SUL blocked cell division and disrupted microtubules, which are long, slender cylinders made up of tubulin (protein), that are essential for the separation of duplicated chromosomes during cell divisio...

In a new study, Israel Vlodavsky, Ph.D., of the Bruce Rappaport Faculty of Medicine in Haifa, Israel, and colleagues of the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem found that silencing the heparanase ge...

Tips from the journals of the American Society for Microbiology

...ls, proteins E6 and E7 are the determined cause of malignant transformation. In the study mice were immunized with a DNA vaccine encoding CRT (a binding protein with many cellular functions) and linked to E6 targeting HPV-associated lesions. Results showed a significant T-cell immune response specific to E6, ...

Marijuana ingredient inhibits VEGF pathway required for brain tumor blood vessels

...ricans each year and is considered one of the most malignant and deadliest forms of cancer, generally resulting in death within one to two years following diagnosis. The disease is usually treated with surgery, followed by conventional radiation alone or in combination with chemotherapy. However, the main tum...

UCSD researchers are first to demonstrate molecular link between inflammation and cancer

...ich become genetically transformed to give rise to malignant cells by the carcinogen, results in increased tumor growth and suppression of apoptosis, whose role is to reduce cancer incidence," Karin added. "Our studies show how NF-kB acts very early in the carcinogenesis process, in two different ways." The r...

Malignant cancer cells generate mice through cloning

...genes in these mice were activated, they developed malignant tumors at a much faster rate than the control mice. According to Lynda Chin of Dana-Farber's oncology department, this research opens up the door to developing cancer animal models in which researchers could ask epigenetic questions. "Although studi...

Study supports association between HPV infection and head and neck cancer

...t cells may allow us to design strategies to block malignant transformation," they write. "The promising results from a trial of an HPV vaccine to prevent cervical cancer raises hope that such a strategy can also be used to reduce the incidence of HNSCC."...

UCSD team determines cellular stress within body is critical

...tumors is unique because the unregulated growth of malignant cells does not allow for the normal development of blood and lymph vessels within the tumor, which could contribute to osmotic stress. If the growth of cancer cells in the body requires a means to adapt to osmotic stress, this stress response pathwa...

Subsequent illnesses may be associated with increased changes in the patient's genes resulting from their treatments during ALL therapy. Finette and his team of scientists examined the frequencies of ...

Kaposi's sarcoma virus 'reprograms' blood vessel cells into lymphatic cells

Characterized by lesions that may look red or purple on the skin or tissues lining areas like the nose and mouth, KS can seriously affect q...
