Cooperation between cancer cells makes therapies ineffective, suggests new treatment
New research from the University of East Anglia shows why many cancers are difficult to treat and come back following treatment. Scientists have shown that cancer cells cooperate with each other in the production of growth factors (molecules produced by the cancer cells that are essential for tumor progression). It is hoped that the findings will lead to a new type of treatment involving genetically modified cancer cells being reinserted into a tumor. (2015-01-26)

New strategy to attack tumor-feeding blood vessels
Scientists at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute have discovered a key molecule needed to kill the blood vessels that supply tumors. The research team from the institute's Molecular Genetics of Cancer and Cancer and Haematology divisions found that for anti-cancer therapies that target tumor blood vessels to work the death- inducing molecule Bim is required. The finding could lead to improved anti-cancer treatments that are based on a two- or three-pronged attack on both the tumor and its blood supply. (2011-06-06)

FAU researchers take new approach to determining risk of cancer reoccurring
What is the likelihood of a patient developing cancer again after having a tumor removed?
