Turning on the thyroid
Despite the prevalence of thyroid disease and its sometimes serious effects, researchers have struggled to answer a pretty basic question about the hormone-producing gland: What turns it on? A study published in this week's issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry provides an answer, and that answer was found within the gland itself. (2016-01-08)

Scientists root out the 'bad seeds' of liver cancer
Researchers have found the 'bad seeds' of liver cancer and believe they could one day reprogram them to remain responsive to cancer treatment, a new USC study has found. The key to disrupting chemo-resistant stem cells that become liver tumors from multiplying is to target the stem cell marker NANOG, said Keigo Machida, senior author. (2016-01-06)

Skin bacteria help cancer cells grow
Our skin is covered in millions of bacteria and most of them help keep us healthy. However, for patients with lymphoma, it may be a rather different story, as new research from the University of Copenhagen shows that toxins in the staphylococcus bacteria help cancer cells gain control over healthy cells. The Danish Cancer Society's Break Cancer Collection contributed DKK 3 million (US$0.5 million) to the research project. (2016-01-06)

Gene thought to suppress cancer may actually promote spread of colorectal cancer

Cancer risk myth debunked
A recent study published in Science by Tomasetti and Vogelstein suggests that variations in terms of cancer risk among tissues from various organs in the body merely amount to pure bad luck. In other words, cancer risk is linked to random mutations arising in the normal course of DNA replication of healthy cells. They also claim that environmental and genetic factors play a lesser role. (2015-12-09)

'Purity' of tumor samples may significantly bias genomic analyses
A new study by UC San Francisco scientists shows that the proportion of normal cells, especially immune cells, intermixed with cancerous cells in a given tissue sample may significantly skew the results of genetic analyses and other tests performed both by researchers and by physicians selecting precision therapies. (2015-12-04)

Breast density alone found not to be a factor for breast cancer risk

Rather than targeting one or two specific genes or proteins that contribute to cancer, the task force was charged with researching a broad-spectrum approach. 'This type of approach involves combinations of multiple low-toxicity agents that can collectively impact many pathways that are known to be important for the genesis and spread of cancer,' said Kumar. (2015-11-18)

Our closest wormy cousins
OIST has analyzed the genomes of two acorn worm species and found that approximately two-thirds of human genes have counterparts in the ancestors of these marine animals. These ancient genes, and their organization within the genome, were already in place in the common ancestor of humans and acorn worms that lived over half a billion years ago. (2015-11-18)

Kidney failure and its treatment may impact cancer risk
