Advanced prostate cancer previously considered inoperable may be operable, curable
... Zincke also explains that when malignant prostate tumors
are high grade -- more aggressive -- they are not especially responsive to radiation therapy alone. He believes the current trend away from surgery is a disservice to patients. "Patients are being denied surgical treatment when indeed they could hav...

of the immune system led to the development of Rituxan, the first monoclonal antibody approved to treat cancer. Dr. Levy's talk will be "Immunology: From science to therapy." V. Craig Jordan, Ph.D., D.Sc. , Vice President and Scientific Director of ...
Study finds no link between cell phone use and brain tumors
... The Danish study questioned 427 people with brain tumors
and 822 people without brain tumors
about their cell phone use. The study found no increased risk for brain tumors

Scientists identify protein that controls cancer cells
... them to infiltrate normal tissue. It also enables tumors
to grow a blood supply. In addition, when non-tumor forming cells were supplied with Fra-1, they began producing tumors. On the other hand, when Fra-1 was eliminated from cells that were already tumor-producing, they stopped forming tumors. "It is a ...
Shape-altering genes linked to ovarian cancer
...For example, turning on HOXA9 caused cells to form tumors
that resembled high-grade serous ovarian cancer. On the other hand, HOXA10 activation resulted in tumors
that resembled endometrioid ovarian cancer and HOXA11 caused cells to form tumors
that resembled muc...
MR spectroscopy may be superior for determining prostate cancer prognosis
A new way of evaluating prostate tumors

Measuring enzymes at end of cancer pathway predicts outcome of Tarceva, Taxol
...sotypes of CDK activity accurately predicted which tumors
would respond to Taxol in the experiments with human breast cancer cell lines and tumor tissues of human xenograft model. "This provides solid preclinical evidence that we can use toward development of a novel device that can measure CDK activity in ...
Combination chemotherapy shows small survival benefit in advanced stomach cancer

are inoperable. Although small tumors
can be surgically removed in the earliest stages of the disease, the only cure for advanced stomach ...
Used in a new way, RNA interference permanently silences key breast cancer gene
...ted breast cancer cells were unable to form breast tumors
either at the site of injection or at distant sites typically involved in metastatic breast cancer in this mouse model. Arlinghaus points out that a human therapy based on these findings is not on the horizon because lentivirus delivery systems haven...
Nanoparticles offer new hope for detection and treatment

High levels of immunosuppressant may lead to tumor recurrence
... cyclosporine, which were higher in patients whose tumors
recurred. Other factors, such as recipient sex, underlying liver disease, or the use of cyclosporine with other immunosuppressants or steroids did not affect tumor recurrence. "We provide here further evidence on the key role of immunosuppression in ...
