2014/03/18 Deaths from breast cancer fall in Europe, but unexplained differences between countries remain
Improvements in treatment, as well as enhanced access to care, underlie the sustained decreases in breast cancer mortality seen in 30 European countries [1] from 1989 to 2010. But there are notable variations between different countries that cannot be explained simply by the resources devoted to can

2014/03/17 Extended hormone therapy may help some women with ER+ breast cancer
Genetic analyses of results from 1125 postmenopausal women being treated for oestrogen responsive breast cancer have shown that some of them are more likely than others to have a late recurrence of their cancer and might benefit from ten years of hormone therapy rather than five. Prof Mitch Dowse

2014/03/16 Using nano-flares to measure genetic content in live cells to catch the early spread of breast cancer
When cancer spreads from one part of the body to another, it becomes even more deadly. It moves with stealth and can go undetected for months or years. But a new technology that uses "nano-flares" has the potential to catch these lurking, mobilized tumor cells early on. Scientists have presented the

2014/03/15 Using big data to identify triple-negative breast, oropharyngeal, and lung cancers
Researchers at Case Western Reserve University and colleagues used "big data" analytics to predict if a patient is suffering from aggressive triple-negative breast cancer, slower-moving cancers or non-cancerous lesions with 95 percent accuracy. If the tiny patterns they found in magnetic resonanc

2014/03/14 Radiotherapy after mastectomy benefits women with breast cancer that has spread to just a few lymph nodes
Women whose breast cancer has spread to just a few lymph nodes under their arm are less likely to have their disease recur or to die from it if they have radiotherapy after mastectomy, according to new research to be presented at the European Breast Cancer Conference (EBCC-9) and published in The La

2014/03/13 Surprising role played by 'velcro protein' in cell migration
Studying epithelial cells, the cell type that most commonly turns cancerous, Johns Hopkins researchers have identified a protein that causes cells to release from their neighbors and migrate away from healthy mammary, or breast, tissue in mice. They also found that deletion of a cellular "Velcro pro

2014/03/12 Cryoablation and nanoparticle-encapsulated anticancer drug combined to destroy cancer stem-like cells
Combining nanodrug-based chemotherapy and cryoablation provides an effective strategy to eliminate cancer stem-like cells (CSCs) the root of cancer resistance and metastasis, which will help to improve the safety and efficacy of treating malignancies that are refractory to conventional therapies.

2014/03/11 BRCA 1 breast cancer gene plays a protective role against the development of metabolic disease
The gene known to be associated with breast cancer susceptibility, BRCA 1, plays a critical role in the normal metabolic function of skeletal muscle, according to a new study led by University of Maryland School of Public Health researchers. Dr. Espen Spangenburg, associate professor of kinesiology,

2014/03/10 Quality of recovery improved by anesthetic technique for breast cancer surgery
Anesthesiologists using a technique similar to a dental freeze can improve the quality of recovery and decrease recovery time for breast cancer surgery patients, according to a new study. The study, from researchers at St. Michael's Hospital and Women's College Hospital, was published in the Marc

2014/03/09 New prognostic test for breast cancer could improve patient treatment
A study by researchers in Nottingham has developed a new clinical test for breast cancer which aims to improve patient treatment. The Nottingham Prognostic Index Plus (NPI+) could be available to patients within two years. The findings, published in the British Journal of Cancer, could signifi
