'Wild Idea' Opens Possible New Frontier for Preventing Ovarian Cancer

A laboratory study offers a new hypothesis about how ovarian cancer forms and suggests how it might be prevented. The study is the first to show that the natural stiffening of the ovaries called ...

Role of Cancer Protein ARID1A at Intersection of Genome Stability and Tumor Suppression

The ARID1A tumor suppressor protein is required to maintain telomere cohesion and correct chromosome segregation after DNA replication. This finding indicates that ARID1A-mutated cells undergo gross ...

PTSD Linked to Increased Risk of Ovarian Cancer

Women who experienced six or more symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at some point in life had a twofold greater risk of developing ovarian cancer compared with women who never had any ...

FAK Protein Linked to Chemotherapy Resistance in Ovarian Cancer

A new study links changes in the gene for the protein focal adhesion kinase, or FAK, to ovarian cancer's ability to survive ...

Combined Breast and Gynecologic Surgery: Study Says Not So Fast

A new study argues against combined approach: Patients undergoing coordinated breast and gynecologic procedures had a significantly longer length of hospital stay, and higher complication, ...

Targeting a Key Protein May Keep Ovarian Cancer Cells from Spreading

Preventing a protein from doing its job may keep a certain type of ovarian cancer cell from growing and dividing uncontrollably in the lab, according to a new ...

Knowing BRCA Status Associated With Better Breast Cancer Outcomes Even Without Surgery

Women who knew their BRCA+ status were diagnosed with earlier stage breast cancer, needed less chemotherapy, less extensive surgery, and had greater overall 5-year survival (98 percent vs. 74 ...

Milestone Reached in Use of Nanoparticles to Kill Cancer With Heat

Researchers have developed an improved technique for using magnetic nanoclusters to kill hard-to-reach ...

A 'One-Two Punch' to Wipe out Cancerous Ovarian Cells

Researchers have developed a two-step combination therapy to destroy cancer cells. They show the superior therapeutic effectiveness of the 'one-two punch' on cells of ovarian cancer ...

Molecular Chatter Makes for a 'Hot Tumor'

A new study has deciphered a complex molecular conversation between cancer and immune cells that is key to orchestrating the successful invasion of tumors by T cells that kill cancer ...

Circulating Tumor DNA Gives Treatment Options for the Most Common Ovarian Cancer Type

According to a new research, circulating tumor DNA can be used detect treatment options for ovarian cancer patients who don't benefit from ...

Neurotransmitter That Helps Cancers Progress IDed

Using human cancer cells, tumor and blood samples from cancer patients, researchers have uncovered the role of a neurotransmitter in the spread of aggressive cancers. Neurotransmitters are chemical ...

Imaging System Helps Surgeons Remove Tiny Ovarian Tumors

Researchers have developed a way to improve the accuracy of surgery to remove ovarian tumors. Using carbon nanotubes and a near-infrared imaging system, they could find and remove tumors as small as ...

Ovarian Cancer Patients Undertested for Mutations That Could Guide Clinical Care

Fewer than a quarter of breast cancer patients and a third of ovarian cancer patients diagnosed between 2013 and 2014 in two states underwent genetic testing for cancer-associated mutations, ...

Treatment Turns Tumors Into Cancer Vaccine Factories

Researchers have developed a novel approach to cancer immunotherapy, injecting immune stimulants directly into a tumor to teach the immune system to destroy it and other tumor cells throughout the ...

One Way T Cell Function May Fail in Cancer

Researchers have discovered a mechanism by which one type of immune cell, CD8+ T cells, can become dysfunctional, impeding its ability to seek and kill cancer ...
