Good long-term quality of life after 'DIEP flap' breast reconstruction

April 29, 2016 - For women who have undergone mastectomy for breast cancer, breast reconstruction using the abdominal "DIEP flap" provides good long-term quality of life (QOL)--similar to that of women without breast cancer, reportsShow More Summary

A Long-noncoding RNA Regulates Repair of DNA Breaks in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Cells

Using a clinically guided genetic screening approach, researchers identified a non-coding RNA that is overexpressed in triple-negative breast cancer cells and regulated by the tumor suppressor p53 and the activated cell surface protein, EGFR. This molecule enhances the repair of DNA breaks by serving as a scaffold that links two other proteins in the repair machinery.

New gene testing technology finds cancer risks 'hiding in plain sight'

A new method for identifying mutations and prioritizing variants in breast and ovarian cancer genes, which will not only reduce the number of possible variants for doctors to investigate, but also increase the number of patients that are properly diagnosed.

Scientists predict cell changes that affect breast cancer growth

Using a broad spectrum of analytical tools, scientists have shown how sometimes small, often practically imperceptible, structural changes in a key breast cancer receptor are directly linked to regulating molecules and can produce predictable effects in curbing or accelerating cancer growth.

Help Poet Jeanine Webb Undergo Breast Cancer Treatment

Poets Megan Kaminski and Brenda Ijima are organizing a YouCaring Campaign for UC San Diego PhD candidate and poet Jeanine Webb, who is undergoing treatment for an aggressive form of breast cancer. From their YouCaring page: Help Jeanine get through this challenging time. She was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. This fund […]

This company wants to sequence your DNA and tell you your risk for 8 different cancers for $249

For $249, Color Genomics wants to tell you if you have the genetic mutations that could predispose you to certain types of cancer. Color launched last April with its breast and ovarian cancer screening test, which looked at 19 genetic markers, parts of our DNA that have been linked to certain conditions. Show More Summary

New gene testing technology finds cancer risks 'hiding in plain sight'

A research team led by an award-winning genomicist at Western University has developed a new method for identifying mutations and prioritizing variants in breast and ovarian cancer genes, which will not only reduce the number of possible...Show More Summary

A long-noncoding RNA regulates repair of DNA breaks in triple-negative breast cancer cells

PHILADELPHIA - The discovery of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) has dramatically changed the understanding of the biology of diseases such as cancer. The human genome contains about 20,000 protein-coding genes - less than 2 percent of the total - but 70 percent of the genome is made into non-gene-encoding RNA. read more

Scientists predict cell changes that affect breast cancer growth

JUPITER, FL - April 28, 2016 - Designing effective new drugs, especially drugs to fight cancer, demands that you know as much as you can about the molecular workings of cancer growth. Without that, it's like planning to fight a war against an enemy you've never seen. read more

Scientists Predict Cell Changes That Affect Breast Cancer Growth, Opening Door to More Effective Therapies

Scientists from The Scripps Research Institute's Florida campus have shown how sometimes small, often imperceptible, structural changes in a key breast cancer receptor are directly linked to regulating molecules and can produce predictable effects in curbing or accelerating cancer growth.

A Breast Cancer Awareness Legacy Lives On

The Nancy Floyd Haworth Foundation announced that it has donated to four New Mexico organizations to support women battling breast cancer: the Anita Salas Memorial Fund, Comadre a Comadre program, YWCA New Mexico and the New Mexico Cancer Care Alliance.

Breast cancer progression -- the devil is in the detail

Neuherberg, April 27, 2016. Researchers at Helmholtz Zentrum München describe how breast cancer cells challenged with a small-molecule inhibitor targeting specific invasive properties switch to an alternative mode-of-action, rendering them even more aggressive. Show More Summary

Breast cancer progression: the devil is in the details

Researchers describe how breast cancer cells challenged with a small-molecule inhibitor targeting specific invasive properties switch to an alternative mode-of-action, rendering them even more aggressive. The results may impair future therapeutic approaches in the TGF-beta pathway.
