Combination therapies could help treat fatal lung cancers: Combining a new class of drug with two other compounds can significantly shrink lung tumors in mice and human cancer cells

Combining a new class of drug with two other compounds can significantly shrink lung tumours in mice and human cancer cells, finds a new study led by the Francis Crick Institute and The Institute of Cancer Research, London. The study, published in Science Translational Medicine, looked at G12C KRAS inhibitors. This new type of drug

Durvalumab combined with chemotherapy improves overall survival in patients with lung cancer: First-line treatment reduces mortality risk by 27%

Adding immunotherapy in the form of durvalumab to chemotherapy improves overall survival in patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer, according to research presented today at the IASLC 2019 World Conference on Lung Cancer hosted by the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC). The research was presented by Dr. Luis Paz-Ares, from

Electromagnetic fields may hinder spread of breast cancer cells: Early findings in lab show reduced ability of cells to migrate

Electromagnetic fields might help prevent some breast cancers from spreading to other parts of the body, new research has found. The study showed that low intensity electromagnetic fields hindered the mobility of specific breast cancer cells by preventing the formation of long, thin extensions at the edge of a migrating cancer cell. The research was

Research advances to better target debilitating effects of cachexia syndrome: Cachexia research advances better target debilitating effects of cancer-related wasting syndrome

A study published in Cell Reports Aug. 6 describes the generation of a new mouse model developed at Hollings Cancer Center that could lead to a better understanding of the cachexia syndrome. This wasting condition, characterized by excessive weight loss, has one of the highest incidence in pancreatic cancer patients. Denis Guttridge, Ph.D., Hollings Cancer

Transfer of oncogene in colon cancer cells demonstrated

For years, doctors and scientists have known very little about why patients can receive drugs successfully for months, or even years, before developing a drug resistance. New University of Minnesota Medical School research proposes that there is a cellular as well as molecular cause to this phenomenon in colon cancer, with potential application to other

Motherhood can deliver body image boost: Study links perfectionism and breast size dissatisfaction — but only in childless women

New research indicates that perfectionism is related to breast size dissatisfaction, but only in non-mothers — suggesting that mothers are more comfortable with their bodies. The study, carried out by Professor Viren Swami of Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) and academics from Sapienza University of Rome, has been published in the journal Body Image. Of the

New breast cancer drug increases the survival rate massively

Ribociclib improved the Survival of breast cancer-Affected Brustkresbs is worldwide the most common cancer in women. Approximately every eighth woman becomes ill in the course of their lives. Most of the risk between the 40’s. and 70. Years of age. In Germany, about 70,000 new cases are registered per year. Of 17,000 women die each

Radiomics predicts who will benefit from chemotherapy

Using data from computed tomography (CT) images, researchers may be able to predict which lung cancer patients will respond to chemotherapy, according to a new study published in the journal Radiology: Artificial Intelligence. Platinum-based chemotherapy is typically the first-line treatment of advanced-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, only about one in four patients responds

New study warns: cow’s milk and beef is a cancer trigger

Make us cow’s milk and beef sick? The German cancer research center (DKFZ) warns currently facing a newly discovered pathogen that is widely used in cow’s milk and beef products. Researchers found several relationships between the so-called BMMF-Eregern from milk and meat of animals of the bovine species and the Occurrence of colon cancer, and

New study warns: cow’s milk and beef is a cancer risk factor

Make us cow’s milk and beef sick? The German cancer research center (DKFZ) warns currently facing a newly discovered pathogen that is widely used in cow’s milk and beef products. Researchers found several relationships between the so-called BMMF-Eregern from milk and meat of animals of the bovine species and the Occurrence of colon cancer, and

Coping with cancer: Partners can reframe challenging situations

We’re often told we are responsible for our own happiness. But in challenging situations, a UC Riverside study not only demonstrates the benefits of positive reframing — finding a “silver lining” — but also suggests our partners can be more adept at finding that silver lining than we are. A UCR psychology researcher says the
