Gene Involved In Hereditary Neuroendocrine Tumors Identified

To date, 11 main genes whose mutations are responsible for pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas have been identified and of these, 6 are involved in cellular metabolism, more specifically, the Krebs cycle, which is the machinery used by cells to burn oxygen and obtain the energy required for cellular work.   More...

Biomarker Based Blood Test Detects Colorectal Cancer

A test is needed that offers greater certainty and that can detect bowel cancer at an early stage and at the same time reaches the whole population. Should this be achieved with a blood test, it might lower the reluctance seen in patients towards the stool test.   More...

Gene Identified That Drives Aggressive Form of Breast Cancer

A gene has been identified that drives one of the most aggressive forms of breast cancer, giving hope that by finding a way to block the gene they may be able to make the cancer less aggressive.  More...
