In the largest long-term study of its kind, NIH and University of Michigan researchers tested the blood of 30 patients who had undergone chemotherapy and radiation treatment for advanced throat canc...

Loss of stem cells correlates with premature aging in animal study

...gy fields since premature aging syndromes and many cancers involve the loss of DNA repair genes.” When the researchers deleted ATR in the tissues of adult mice, they noticed that the mice showed signs of premature aging, such as hair graying, hair loss, and osteoporosis, within three to four months. T...

Study shows big power of small RNAs, not just proteins, in halting cancer

...amage to this pathway is something that almost all cancers have in common,” said CSHL Cancer Center Deputy Director and HHMI Scott Lowe. “Collaboration among different CSHL research laboratories has not only found that p53 can arrest the growth and even eradicate cancers, but we’ve revealed something very...

Sun exposure early in life linked to specific skin cancer gene mutation

Skin cancers often contain different gene mutations, but just how these mutations contribute to the cause of melanomas has been a mystery. A new clue comes from scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Schools of Medicine and Public Health. ...

U-M researchers discover gene switched off in cancer can be turned on

...s in large amounts, causing cancer to develop. But cancers also arise because genes that control growth are turned off. While researchers can use these turned-off genes to identify or monitor cancer, currently no treatments actually target these genes. U-M researchers found that a gene called Brahma, or B...

CABI houses one of the world’s largest genetic resource collections of fungi, numbered at over...

Cancer stem cells similar to normal stem cells can thwart anti-cancer agents

... According to Dr. Donnenberg, the very fact that cancers can and do relapse after apparently successful therapy indicates the survival of a drug-resistant, tumor-initiating population of cells in many types of refractory cancers. “Because of the similarities between the way that normal stem cells and cance...

Mutating the entire genome

...so can create new genes from two other genes. Many cancers – certain sarcomas, leukemias and lymphomas – start with translocation. Existing methods result in the desired translocation of two chromosomes in one of every 1 million to 10 million cells cultured, Capecchi says, while the new method produces t...

Master regulatory gene of epithelial stem cells identified

The role of p63 in epithelial stem cells has been controversial. Some studies found that p63 maintains a steady pool of the regenerative cells, while other studies...

According to Hacker, this is the first study of real-time collection of fatigue data in acutely ill cancer patients. Ecological momentary assessment holds substantial promise for investigating fatigue and other can...
