Genomic Sequencing Augments Diagnosis of Lymphoid Cancer

Lymphoid cancers include diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCL), follicular lymphoma (FL), and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). In recent years, several sequencing-based assays have been developed, but their clinical applicability and utility for patients with specific mutations still needs to be verified. More...

Esophageal Cancer GWAS Leads to Risk Variants

Genome-wide association studies have identified common variants associated with risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma; however, these common variants cannot explain all heritability of esophageal cancer. More...

Image: Human papilloma virus (HPV) encased in biofilms inside tonsil crypts (pictured) may explain why the roughly 5% of HPV-infected people who develop cancer of the mouth or throat are not protected by their immune systems. Tonsil crypts with HPV are shown in green; epithelial and biofilm layers are shown in red (Photo courtesy of Dr. Katherine Rieth, MD).

HPV Found Hidden on Surface of Tonsils

Human papilloma virus (HPV), the culprit behind cervical cancer and some forms of head and neck cancer may hide in small pockets on the surface of tonsils in people not known to carry the virus. More...

CTC Blood Test Detects Early Stage Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer is among the most preventable cancers when detected early. Yet, it is the second leading cancer killer in the USA. Traditional methods like colonoscopies and stool-based tests are invasive or inconvenient and compliance with colorectal cancer screening remains low, leading to most colorectal cancers being detected in late stages, when survival rates are poor.

Bacteria Play Critical Role in Driving Colon Cancers

Patients with an inherited form of colon cancer harbor two bacterial species that collaborate to encourage development of the disease, and the same species have been found in people who develop a sporadic form of colon cancer. More...

Glycan-Attaching Enzyme Defines Colon Cancer

An enzyme that is absent in healthy colon tissue but abundant in colon cancer cells and this enzyme appears to drive the conversion of normal colon tissue into cancer by attaching sugar molecules, or glycans, to certain proteins in the cell. More...

Genetic Biomarkers Determine Risk of Developing Endometriosis

Endometriosis is one of the most common women's health disorders, causing up to 10% of reproductive-age women to experience painful periods and potential infertility. Diagnosis can elude patients for decades, in part because exploratory surgery is considered the ultimate diagnostic method. More...
