Genes and biomarkers that allow doctors to choose the right therapy for the right patient

...that are involved in regulating the sensitivity of squamous cell head and neck cancer cells to lapatinib, a cancer drug that was recently approved for use in metastatic breast cancer under the name Tykerb. The study, a collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline, evaluated 7,000 genetic targets in human head and n...

Abnormal overexpression of p53 is a predictive molecular biomarker

...n Austin, Texas, found that patients with advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck cancer (SCCHN) whose pre-treatment tumor samples over-expressed p53 protein were significantly more likely to respond to Advexin therapy than those whose tumor showed little p53 protein. Advexin is a gene based dru...

Long-term cancer risk follows stem cell transplant recipients

...second cancers were cancers of the skin (basal and squamous cell), lung, oral cavity, and colon. Furthermore, data analysis showed that the risk more than tripled for patients who received their transplant when they were over 40 years of age. The study also identified a new risk factor: patients who recei...

Gene first linked to rare disease may trigger skin cancer, other tumors

...idermis, including basal cell carcinomas (BCC) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCC). BCC and SCC represent the two most common forms of skin cancer, which together affect an estimated one million Americans each year. "Interestingly, we observed reduced or absent expression of CYLD in more than ten samples of ...

Biomarkers may hone anti-aging therapies

...cer, particularly the most common forms: basal and squamous cell carcinomas. Sligh and colleagues were surprised to find a panel of mitochondrial DNA deletions in the tumor-free skin that was adjacent to the tumors, but not in the tumors themselves. The tumor samples were more likely to have full-length mito...

Forsyth scientists find three bacteria associated with oral cancer

...r bacteria in saliva indicate the presence of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC)--one of the deadliest of cancers because it often goes undetected in its early stages. "Finding bacteria associated with OSCC encourages us to hope that we have discovered an early diagnostic marker for the disease," said Donna...

Compound from Chinese medicine shows promise in head and neck cancer

... their team treated cell cultures of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma with the (-)-gossypol compound and found it inhibited tumor cell growth. Additional testing in animals was also positive and showed (-)-gossypol did not harm surrounding healthy tissue. Researchers hope to begin a clinical trial in he...
