ASH 2011 Conference Coverage

Tumor suppressor mutations alone do not explain deadly cancer

Although mutations in a gene dubbed the "guardian of the genome" are recognized as being associated with more aggressive cancers, evidence suggests that the deleterious health effects of the mutated gene may in large part be due to other genetic abnormalities.

For patients with lung cancer, new method may safely increase radiotherapy dose

Researchers have designed a method that increase the radiotherapy dose administered to patients with lung cancer.

Triple therapy revs up immune system against a common brain tumor

A triple therapy for glioblastoma, consisting of two types of immunotherapy and targeted radiation, has significantly prolonged the survival of mice with these brain cancers, according to a new report.

Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial identifies men most likely to undergo biopsy

Healthy men participating in the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial who actively participate in all trial steps are most likely to undergo a biopsy at the end of the trial, according to recent research.

Promising results from trial for late-stage peritoneal cancers

A drug originally used to treat ovarian cancer has shown promising results in patients with advanced peritoneal cancers during a phase I clinical trial.

Prostate cancer education is key for patient decision-making

Researchers found that men who aren't well educated about prostate cancer have more difficulty making decisions.

Risk of death from colon cancer lower among those with intestinal polyps

Patients with intestinal polyps have a lower risk of dying from cancer than previously thought.

New analyses of epigenetics reveal tumor weaknesses

Scientists have known for decades that cancer can be caused by genetic mutations, but more recently they have discovered that chemical modifications of a gene can also contribute to cancer.

Major breakthrough in understanding acute lymphoblastic leukemia

By analyzing the DNA sequence of patients at different stages of leukemia, researchers have discovered mutations in genes that lead to childhood leukemia of the acute lymphoblastic type, the most common childhood cancer.

American Heart Association (AHA) issues guidelines for electronic cigarette use
