Mitosis study identifies new potential target for cancer therapy

Mitosis study identifies new potential target for cancer therapy

When a cell divides, it is called mitosis. Mitosis is essential to life, but it is a process that goes haywire in cancer. Researchers have discovered that that as chromosomes of the copied begin to pull away to from a new cell (a process called anaphase) a protein called...

Study demonstrates safety and effectiveness of new SLN radiotracer in breast cancer patients

SLN stands for “Sentinel Lymph Nodes” and determining whether breast cancer has spread to those sentinel lymph nodes is key to prognosis and treatment of breast cancer. The traditional “blue dyes” used to identify sentinel lymph node spread are not “held” by the lymph node very long, so imaging...

Should Addrogen-deprivation Therapy (ADT) be reserved for for African-American Men with High-Risk Prostate Cancer?

African American men with "favorable-risk" prostate cancer dianosis have shortened survival rates when they undergoAndrogen-deprivation therapy (ADT) according to a new study. This suggest that only African American men with High-risk prostae cancer be subjected to ADT.

Novel small-molecule Wnt inhibitor may provide new treatment option for colorectal cancer patients

Novel small-molecule Wnt inhibitor may provide new treatment option for colorectal cancer patients

Wnt signaling plays a role in embrryonic development, cell proliferation, cell mirgation, and even plays a role int detrmining call fate. Wnt signaling also controlls tissue regeneration in adult marrom, skin, and intestine. This is a big deal for people with colorectal cancer.
