Biomarker for an Aggressive Breast Cancer Identified

Using bioinformatics, scientists have identified an overactive transcription factor strongly associated with basal-like breast carcinoma—providing a biomarker with potential for improved diagnostics and as a smart target for new therapeutics for patients with this highly aggressive, often chemotherapy-resistant cancer.  More...

Biomarker Identified for Head and Neck Cancers

Evidence has been found suggesting that the deleterious health effects of a mutated gene may in large part be due to other genetic abnormalities, at least in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.   More...

Effective Prognostic Marker Identified for Ovarian Cancer

High-grade serous ovarian carcinoma is the most prevalent of epithelial ovarian cancers and remains poorly understood due to a lack of biomarkers identified for clinical use, for diagnosis, or for prognosis of patient survival rates.  More...
