Targeted Genetics Collaborators Report Additional Phase I E1A Gene Therapy Data At American Society of Clinical Oncology Meeting
Targeted Genetics Corporation today announced additional Phase I results of its E1A gene therapy for the treatment of breast and head and neck cancers at the 34th Annual Meeting of The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) (1998-05-18)

Wistar Scientist Awarded American Cancer Society Grant For Research On Gene Therapy
Frank J. Rauscher III, Ph.D., head of The Wistar Institute's Molecular Genetics Program, has been awarded a $224,000 two- year grant from the American Cancer Society. The funds will be used to support his research into the genetic causes of alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS), a highly malignant tumor found most often in the skeletal muscles of children.

High Blood Pressure Caused By Salt Retention May Be Related To Oncogenes Implicated In Cancer
Sodium transport may be intimately related to some of the same oncogenes that have been implicated in the unchecked cellular growth of cancer, say Emory University researchers at Experimental Biology '98 in San Francisco. (1998-04-20)

UNC-CH Researchers Discover Key Cancer Control Mechanism
A gene called ARF attaches to and disables a protein known as MDM2 and in the process helps protect the body against cancer, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine researchers have discovered. (1998-03-22)

Gene Therapy In Mice Delays Onset Of Lou Gehrig's Disease
Scientists studying mice genetically engineered to develop familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, have found that the human gene Bcl-2 may delay the onset of ALS. ALS is the most common motor neuron disease in humans. Currently, the only treatments for ALS are mechanical ventilation and, to a lesser extent, the drug riluzole. (1997-07-24)

Retrovirus Transforms Normal Animal Cells Into Cancer Cells, Finds University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute Researchers
The first evidence that a retrovirus causes melanoma development is being presented by University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute researchers on April 16 at the American Association for Cancer Research meeting in San Diego. Scientists showed that C-typeecotropic retrovirus can infect normal mouse melanocytes and transformed them into melanoma cells. (1997-04-16)

Researchers Reveal Architecture Of Protein From First Known Oncogene: Three-D View Of Molecular Switch Assists Drug Development, Basic Science
The crystal structure of Src, a protein produced by the first known cancer-causing gene, has been revealed by Howard Hughes and Harvard Medical School researchers in the highest resolution ever for a protein of its class. This structural image of human Src appears in the February 13 Nature and eventually may aid in rational drug design. (1997-02-13)

New Cancer Switch Discovered By Duke Medical Center Pharmacologists
A new way that cancers may be triggered in the body -- through damage to molecular (1996-04-29)
