Non-Invasive Urine Test Detects Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men worldwide. About one man in nine will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. It is estimated that in the USA for 2018 there will be about 165,000 new cases of prostate cancer and about 29,000 deaths from prostate cancer. More...

Elevated Mir-24-3p Plays Prognostic Role in Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women. In 2018 an estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the USA, along with 63,960 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. Therefore, there is a need to identify novel prognostic and predictive markers of occult metastases to better individualize adjuvant systemic therapy. More...

New Staining Method Enables Nano-CT Imaging of Tissue

Tissue sectioning is a routine procedure in hospitals, for instance to investigate tumors. As the name implies, it entails cutting samples of body tissue into thin slices, then staining them and examining them under a microscope. More...

Multigene Breast Cancer Recurrence Signatures Tests Compared

A comparison of commercially available multigene breast cancer recurrence signatures suggests that some tests may be better than others at assessing which patients are at risk for late distant recurrence, which could be impacting oncologists' ability to guide appropriate treatment decisions for patients.

Colorectal Cancer Clues Provided by Polyp Profiles

Colorectal cancer (CRC) develops through progressive accumulation of alterations beginning with abnormal growth of the colon epithelium, which over time can transform to an adenomatous polyp and then cancer. More...
