Genetic Causes of Salivary Gland Carcinoma Discovered

Acinic cell carcinoma is the third most common malignant form of salivary gland cancer. These tumors are similar to normal salivary gland tissue and occur most frequently in the parotid gland. Until now, the molecular causes for the illness were unknown. More...

Microbiome Helps Identify Patients with Early-Stage Cancer

Nearly 10,000 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the UK each year, with less than 1% surviving beyond ten years. More...

Blood Test Detects Brain Damage Years before Symptoms

Alzheimer's disease is a major cause of dementia that destroys brain cells and tissue. As the brain damage spreads, it leads to symptoms such as confusion, memory loss, and diminishing capacity to function. Eventually, the person can no longer lead an independent life. More...

DNA Methylation Test Detects Early Aggressive Prostate Cancer

Liquid biopsies that noninvasively detect molecular correlates of aggressive prostate cancer (PCa) could be used to triage patients, reducing the burdens of unnecessary invasive prostate biopsy and enabling early detection of high-risk disease. More...

CSF Liquid Biopsy Sequencing Tracks Glioma Evolution

Genetic tumor profiling of gliomas is used to classify disease and guide therapy, but involves brain surgery for tissue collection; repeated tumor biopsies may be necessary for accurate genotyping over the course of the disease. More...

Bacterial Pathogen Discovered in Brains of Alzheimer's Patients

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients exhibit neuroinflammation consistent with infection, including microglial activation, inflammasome activation, complement activation, and altered cytokine profiles. More...

Cellular material will be examined using cytological, immunohistochemical and genomic methods (Photo courtesy of Swallow the Sponge).

Simple Inexpensive Test Screens for Esophageal Cancer

Cancer of the esophagus claims more than 400,000 lives around the world each year. With no efficient, reliable method of screening for the disease, by the time symptoms become apparent, it's often too late to save the patient. More...
