MCM: Man's Breast Cancer Diagnosis Led to Family Members' Genetic Testing

Help us put a new spin on #ManCrushMonday! In observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, UC Cancer Institute has chosen to honor some of our very own "man crushes”—men fighting against this horrible disease. They could be treating it in the clinic, studying it in the lab, or fighting it themselves as patients. Check out our social media pages each Monday in October to see our #ManCrushMonday posts and help us to applaud these men who are making a difference. ... Full story

Earlier unknown molecular-level mechanism may contribute to the growth rate of breast cancer

Researchers at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, the University of Turku and the University of Oslo have discovered a previously unknown molecular-level mechanism that may partly explain the increased growth of cancer cells. The study, published in the British Journal of Cancer, showed that high levels of miRNA-378a-5p molecule cause cell division anomalies. This renders the number of chromosomes in cancer cells abnormal, which is known to promote growth and the spread of cancer. In addition, the researchers discovered that elevated miRNA378a-5p levels in breast cancer patients correlate with the most aggressive forms of cancer. ... Full story
