Cancer-induced Weakness in Immune System May Be Key to HER2+ Breast Cancer Recurrence, and Prevention

Cancer-induced Weakness in Immune System May Be Key to HER2+ Breast Cancer Recurrence, and Prevention

By

T cells from patients whose breast cancer had recently recurred showed weak response to the HER2 receptor protein, according to a recent study. The study findings suggest that immune status monitoring may be used to gauge the risk of recurrence.

High Remission Rate Seen With Arsenic Trioxide Consolidation for Children With Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia

By

Increased rates of event-free surviva were seen with lthe use of arsenic trioxide consolidation for children newly diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL).

Network of Thread-like Branches Enables Brain Tumors to Avoid Effects of Treatment

By

Incurable astrocytomas grow into healthy brain tissue like mycelium. Therefore, these tumors cannot be completely removed by surgery and invariably start growing again at some point despite intensive treatment.

Molecular Imaging Study Reveals Improved Detection of Early Stage Recurrent Prostate Cancer

Molecular Imaging Study Reveals Improved Detection of Early Stage Recurrent Prostate Cancer

By

In the study, management was changed in 44% more cases by Use of the imaging agent Ga-68 PSMA with PET/CT resulted in a change in management of prostate cancer in 44% more cases than with another widely used agent.

Combining chemotherapy with an immune-blocking drug could stop cancer recurrence

Combining chemotherapy with an immune-blocking drug could stop cancer recurrence

By

Shutting down the healing action of certain white blood cells triggered by chemotherapy may help prevent the spread of cancer.

Blood test detects the return of early-stage breast cancer

Blood test detects the return of early-stage breast cancer

Circulating tumor DNA analysis spots stray cells months before scans detect breast cancer recurrence.

Partial versus entire breast radiation does not increase recurrence

Partial versus entire breast radiation does not increase recurrence

Women diagnosed with breast cancer and treated with a one-week regimen of partial breast radiation after tumor removal saw no increase in cancer recurrence or difference in cosmetic outcomes.

Novel tool predicts postoperative liver cancer recurrence after transplant

By

The risk of disease recurrence in liver cancer patients who have undergone a liver transplant can now be more accurately calculated, thanks to new tool.

Combination therapy can reduce chance of recurrence from small HER2+ breast tumors

By

Women with stage 1 HER2-positive breast tumors who received a combination of lower-intensity chemotherapy and a targeted drug following surgery were unlikely to suffer cancer recurrence within 3 years of treatment.

Personalized genetic test predicts recurrence risk for prostate cancer

By

A genetic test has been developed to identify which men are at higher risk for prostate cancer recurrence after localized treatment with surgery or radiotherapy.

Elevated cholesterol associated with prostate cancer recurrence

Elevated cholesterol associated with prostate cancer recurrence

Findings suggest that elevated levels of cholesterol and triglycerides may be linked with greater risk of the prostate cancer recurrence, but normalization of blood fats may reduce risk.

Limiting carbs may reduce breast cancer recurrence in some women

Limiting carbs may reduce breast cancer recurrence in some women

By

Reducing carbohydrate intake could reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence among women whose tumor tissue is positive for the insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF1) receptor, according to a new study.

Lowering carb intake could help reduce breast cancer risk

Lowering carb intake could help reduce breast cancer risk

Concerned about the associations between obesity, diabetes, and cancer risk, researchers examined the links between carbohydrate intake and breast cancer risk.

ASCO: Fish and exercise can thwart colon cancer recurrence

ASCO: Fish and exercise can thwart colon cancer recurrence

The likelihood that patients will suffer a return of colon cancer more than doubles if they eat fish less than twice a week, or if they get less than 60 minutes of moderate exercise a week.

DNA methylation markers ID bladder cancer recurrence

DNA methylation markers ID bladder cancer recurrence

For patients with noninvasive urothelial carcinoma, three DNA methylation markers are able to accurately predict tumor recurrence, according to a study.

Low recurrence breast cancer rates with negative margins

Low recurrence breast cancer rates with negative margins

Positive margins linked to two-fold increased risk of ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence, according to consensus guidelines.

Stage III/IV melanoma patients at risk for NPMs

Stage III/IV melanoma patients at risk for NPMs

Patients with stage III or IV melanoma who have not received treatment with BRAF inhibitors remain at risk for developing new primary melanomas (NPMs).

MicroRNA-222, -146b levels tied to papillary thyroid cancer

MicroRNA-222, -146b levels tied to papillary thyroid cancer

Tumor levels were associated with PTC recurrence, and circulating levels were linked to presence of cancer.

By

A biomarker based on the expression levels of seven tumor-specific genes was able to accurately assess the risk for breast cancer recurrence beyond the first 5 years of treatment.

Phone calls improve health behaviors in colorectal cancer survivors

By

A telephone-delivered program, CanChange, helped survivors of colorectal cancer be more physically active, maintain their body weight, and have a healthier diet, according to a new study.
