How Tumor Cells Evade the Immune Defense

Scientists are increasingly trying to use the body's own immune system to fight cancer. A new study now shows the strategies tumor cells use to evade this attack. The method developed for this ...

Missing BAP1 Gene Associated With Immunosuppressive Molecules in Uveal Melanoma

A new study reveals that tumors lacking a protein called BAP1 have an ineffective immune reaction against cancer, thus rendering immunotherapies ineffectual, particularly in uveal melanomas (UM). The ...

Blocking Immune T-Cell Regulator May Help Eliminate Tumors

Immune system T-cells are more able to destroy skin cancer cells when a T-cell regulator called SLAMF6 is missing, a new study in eLife ...

Targeting Turncoat Immune Cells to Treat Cancer

A new study has identified a mechanism by which regulatory T cells, which suppress immune responses, adapt their metabolism to thrive in the harsh microenvironment of the ...

New Areas in Human Genomes Linked to Skin Cancer Risk

A cancer researcher has identified eight new genomic regions that increase a person's risk for skin cancer. Researchers have discovered eight new loci -- locations on a person's genome -- ...

States With Highest Rates of Melanoma Due to Ultraviolet Radiation Identified

A new study finds a wide state-by-state variation in rates of melanoma caused by ultraviolet (UV) exposure with highest rates in several states on the East and West Coast including Hawaii, but also a ...

Possible New Combination Treatment for Advanced Melanoma

Immunotherapy drug in combination with an infusion of anti-tumor immune cells may produce a stronger immune response that could help fight advanced ...

New Technique Predicts Which Melanoma Patients Are at Risk for Cancer Recurrence, Spread

Investigators present a new, quantitative technique that leverages DNA sequencing to make more sophisticated and accurate predictions about which primary melanomas are likely to recur and ...

Body's Natural Signal Carriers Can Help Melanoma Spread

A new study sheds fresh light on how melanoma cells interact with other cells via extracellular vesicles they secrete. The researchers found that extracellular vesicles secreted by melanoma cells use ...

Skin Cancer Suppressor Found

A promising route to develop new treatments for skin cancer has been identified by the UK's University of Bath scientists, who have found a molecule that suppresses melanoma tumour ...

New Route for Tackling Drug Resistance in Skin Cancer Cells

Researchers have found that melanoma cells fight anti-cancer drugs by changing their internal skeleton (cytoskeleton) -- opening up a new therapeutic route for combating skin and other cancers that ...

Study Finds 95 Percent Satisfaction Rate With Mohs Surgery

Patients who received Mohs surgery to treat the most serious form of skin cancer, melanoma, reported a 95 percent long-term satisfaction rate with their results, according to a new ...

Molecular Characteristics of Leptomeningeal Melanoma Metastases

Very little information is known about the molecular development of leptomeningeal melanoma metastases (LMM), making it difficult to develop effective therapies. Researchers sought to change this by ...

Can the Flu Shot Help Fight Cancer?

Physicians and scientists have found that injecting tumors with influenza vaccines, including some FDA-approved seasonal flu shots, turns cold tumors to hot, a discovery that could lead to an ...

New Approach to Enhancing Response to Immunotherapy in Melanoma

Scientists have identified a new way to boost the immune system's ability to fight cancer. The study used a mouse model to identify the importance of the Siah2 protein in the control of immune ...

Popular Gyms Undermining Health With Tanning Beds

Popular gym chains across the country capitalize on the broad desire to get healthy in the New Year with persuasive post-holiday marketing campaigns, but they're also undermining public health ...

Brachytherapy Proves Effective in Treating Skin Cancer

The use of high-dose-rate brachytherapy to treat elderly patients with common skin cancers offers excellent cure rates and cosmetic outcomes, according to a new ...

Findings Could Identify Aggressive Breast Cancers That Will Respond to Immunotherapy

Researchers discovered a biological signature that could help identify which triple negative breast cancers might respond to immunotherapy and other ...

Blocking a Survival Mechanism Could Tackle Melanoma Treatment Resistance

The effectiveness of current treatments for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, could be improved by using approaches that wipe out the 'survival system' of cancer cells according ...

'Hyperhotspots' Could Predict Skin Cancer Risk

Scientists report the discovery of 'hyperhotspots' in the human genome, locations that are up to 170-times more sensitive to ultraviolet radiation (UV) from sunlight compared to the genome ...
