Hopkins researchers identify risk factors for prediction of lethal prostate cancer after recurrence

...he Journal of the American Medical Association. If discovered early through screening, prostate cancer is treatable and is often cured by a surgical procedure called radical prostatectomy. However, as many as one-third of those who undergo surgery will eventually show signs that the cancer has recurred, said Fr...

Researchers identify gene set linked to breast cancer's spread to lungs

...ready on the market that target a few of the genes discovered in the new study. "If you can successfully target these genes with a drug, you are helping slow the growth of any primary tumor and also blocking the growth of any tumor cells that have spread to the lungs," he said.

Once-dreaded leprosy 'replaced' by tuberculosis, say researchers

...as found by the researchers in the DNA from a body discovered in a 1st century CE burial cave in Jerusalem. This prompted the investigators to re-examine DNA samples from other ancient sites that they and their colleagues had worked on previously. In doing so, they found leprosy and tuberculosis bacteria in re...

Dialysis treatment choice affects risk of death in patients with end-stage kidney disease
