Common cancer gene sends death order to tiny killer

...3's uncanny ability to kill cells likely to become malignant because of damaged genes in their nuclei. MicroRNAs are small chains of ribonucleic acid (RNA) made by the same machinery that produces other types of RNA in the cell, such as the messenger RNAs that carry the instructions to make proteins. Once prod...

Rising skin cancer rates are more likely to affect wealthy people, says 12-year review

Catching cancer's spread by watching hemoglobin

...hs would be very useful for distinguishing between malignant and benign skin tumors, and would remove the critical need for skin biopsies, which is especially helpful if there are multiple suspicious areas that need to be investigated. Since hemoglobin is highly concentrated in red blood cells, imaging the ...

Effect on breast tumors of DNA alternations in 3 genes described

... normal cell growth to produce proteins that cause malignant behavior, or unregulated cell growth. Until now, data has been very limited regarding the mechanism and causes of hypermethylation, especially for hypermethylation in breast cancer. The purpose of the current study was to determine how DNA hypermeth...

Leukemia drug turns mini-molecules up, cancer genes down

...uggest that these three miRNAs help re-program the malignant cells to a more normal state," Garzon says, "and that they are also important for normal differentiation." In this study, the researchers used leukemia cells grown in the laboratory and cells donated by patients to study how the drug ATRA affects...

UC Davis researchers use heated nanoprobes to destroy breast cancer cells in mice

...eek out and latch onto receptors on the surface of malignant cells. Three days later, the team applied an alternating magnetic field to the tumor region, causing the magnetic nanospheres latched onto the tumor cells to change polarity thousands of times per second, instantaneously generating heat. As soon a...

Study examines risk of soft tissue sarcomas in hereditary retinoblastoma survivors

...iagnosed sarcomas were fibrosarcoma (13 patients), malignant fibrous histiocytoma (12), rhabdomyosarcoma (8), and liposarcoma (3). The authors calculated that there was a 184-fold increase in soft-tissue sarcomas among hereditary retinoblastoma survivors compared with the general population and a 390-fold incr...

Molecular differences between early and advanced melanomas could provide new drug targets

...aling molecule Akt is a primary trigger that leads malignant melanomas on the skin's surface to begin growing vertically beneath the skin and turn into deadly invasive cancers, scientists have found. Understanding this key molecular difference between radial melanomas that spread on the surface of the skin an...

Vasectomy may put men at risk for type of dementia

...ou can use as a parallel," Weintraub said. Certain malignant tumors produce antibodies that reach the brain and cause an illness similar to encephalitis, she noted. The next step in Weintraub's research will be to launch a national study to see if her results will be confirmed in a larger population. "I...

Finnish scientists discovered a new approach to treat virus-induced lymphomas

...way. TP53 gene is mutated or deleted in 50% of all malignant tumors. A recently discovered strategy for p53 activation targets the interaction of p53 with its negative regulator MDM2. This is based on a potent and selective small-molecule inhibitor of the p53–MDM2 interaction, the Nutlin-3a, originally discove...

HIV protein enlisted to help kill cancer cells

...e cell-killing effect of radiation. When mice with malignant tumors were treated with TAT-Bim, their tumors shrank, and they survived longer than mice that didn't get the treatment. After 40 days, 80 percent of mice receiving TAT-Bim were alive compared to 20 percent of mice that didn't get the treatment. Ha...
