Microscopy Innovation Developed to Diagnose Cancer

Researchers have developed a spectrophotometric technique for microscopic analysis of variations in single cancer cells, enabling more efficient diagnosis of melanomas, including metastasize forms. More...

Test Predicts Benefit of Targeted Cancer Treatments

There is an urgent need to develop biomarker strategies to a priori identify castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) patients who will derive minimal benefit from androgen receptor (AR) targeting and offer them an alternative treatment paradigm. More...

Glioma Risk Lower with Elevated Blood Sugar

While many cancers are more common among those with diabetes, cancerous brain tumors called gliomas are less common among those with elevated blood sugar and diabetes. More...

BK Virus Biomarkers Determined by Urine Samples

Transplants are lifesaving treatments for patients with end-stage kidney disease but around 25% fail within five years, either because the body begins to reject the new organ, or because a viral infection has taken hold of the kidney. More...

New Technique Tests Therapies for Cancer Metastasis

A new laboratory technique has been developed that can rapidly test the effectiveness of treatments for life-threatening, breast cancer metastases in bone. Until now, there has not been an effective laboratory platform to study metastatic tumors in their new microenvironment. More...

Multigene Test Extends Life Expectancy for Cancer Patients

Testing for variants in seven cancer-associated genes, versus the usual process of testing in just two genes, followed by risk-reduction management could cost-effectively improve life expectancy for women at risk of hereditary breast cancer. More...

Ancillary Tests Developed for Salivary Gland Pathology

Salivary gland tumors represent a diverse set of tumors with a broad range of biologic behaviors, ranging from completely benign tumors to low-grade malignancies to high-grade malignancies. More...
