Tulane University researchers have discovered that the protein PHLDB3, thought to be a potential tumor suppressor, actually allows cancer cells to thrive in pancreatic, prostate, colon, breast, lung, and other common cancers. The discovery could explain how cancer is able to overcome p53 - a key tumor-suppressing protein.
(Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute) Researchers at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute have discovered 'hotspots' of mutations in breast cancer genomes, where mutations thought to be inactive 'passengers' in the genome have now been shown to possibly drive further cancerous changes. Show More Summary
(Imperial College London) Scientists have discovered why a type of breast cancer drug stops working in some patients.
Scientists report findings of how triple negative breast cancer cells are able to bypass treatment with trametinib, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved drug that belongs to a class of commonly used anti-cancer drugs called kinase inhibitors. Show More Summary
Study finds higher death rate among breast cancer patients who ate a lot of those foods.
In the journal Cancer Discovery, UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers and colleagues report findings of how triple negative breast cancer cells are able to bypass treatment with trametinib, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved drug that belongs to a class of commonly used anti-cancer drugs called kinase inhibitors.

(Georgia State University) Administering chemotherapy to African-American breast cancer patients prior to surgery could improve their prognosis and survival rates from the disease, according to a new study.
(Reuters Health) - Women who eat a lot of grilled, smoked and barbecued meats and develop breast cancer may be more likely to die from their cancer than those who eat less of these foods, a U.S. study suggests.
Investigators have identified a protein that may play an essential role in maintaining a population of tumor-initiating cells -- treatment-resistant cells responsible for cancer recurrence and metastasis -- in breast cancer, as well as a compound that appears to reduce the molecule's ability to protect TICs from the effects of chemotherapy.
More than 200 scientists have signed up to a tissue-sharing database designed to reduce the number of animals needed for biomedical research.
One in eight U.S. women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, according to BreastCancer.org. While that statistic is troubling, it is important to note that current treatment options for the disease can have a very high success rate -- so long as it is diagnosed in its early stages.

An international group of scientists has created a new approach to the diagnostics of breast cancer with the help of nanoparticles of porous silicone.
Olivia Newton-John is opening up about what she learned from her battle with breast cancer. As you may know, the Grease star was diagnosed with cancer in 1992 at the age of 44 (the same weekend her father passed away), and was later treated with chemotherapy and a mastectomy. Since, the singer has dedicated her life to [...]
I first met her in the urgent care at the cancer center when I was on call one night. She was beautiful: 53 years old, four adult sons, and in incredible pain. She had stage 4 breast cancer, and unbeknownst to her, she had a metastatic lesion in her femoral neck, which she had fractured […]
