Scientists identify pancreatic cancer stem cells

... for the aggressive tumor growth, progression, and metastasis that define this deadly cancer. In the February 1 issue of Cancer Research, the researchers demonstrate that only 100 of these stem cells are needed to produce human pancreatic cancer in half of mice tested. They also found these cells are at least ...

Inflammation may play role in metastasis of prostate cancer

...ression of tumors actually plays a key role in the metastasis of prostate cancer. The research, appearing online March 19 in advance of publication in the journal Nature, identifies a mechanism which triggers metastasis, which is the spread of cancer in late stages of prostate cancer development. The findings ...

Napoleon's mysterious death unmasked, UT Southwestern researcher says

Mayo Clinic: Gene expression profiling not quite perfected in predicting lung cancer prognosis

...to classify various tumors and assess tumor stage, metastasis and patient survival rates, the evidence suggests that gene-based prediction for lung cancer is not yet entirely dependable. However, some results have been promising: gene profiling has reliably predicted patient survival for lung adenocarcinoma al...

Speeding discovery of the 'human cancer genome'

...vasive, identifying Nedd9 as a "bona fide melanoma metastasis gene." Nedd9's role appears to result from its interaction with another enzyme known to be important for cell's ability to migrate and take root. As further evidence, they also found that the Nedd9 gene was frequently expressed at higher levels in...
