VICC Leads Study on High Breast Cancer Incidence and Mortality Rates in African-American Women

A cancer research consortium headed by investigators at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center (VICC) and two other institutions, today received $12 million in federal funding to help determine why African-American women die at a higher rate and have more aggressive breast cancer than white women. The grant, which was awarded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health, is based on the premise that having a better understanding of the biology–and, in particular, the genetics–of breast cancer in African-American women will lead to better prevention and treatment. ...

Misaligned chromosomes give breast cancer cells a selection advantage

If chromosomes are distributed unevenly during cell division, this has a negative effect on the survival of daughter cells. However, in many cancer types, misaligned chromosomes are associated with a negative prognosis, meaning that they appear to benefit the cancer. Scientists at DKFZ have conducted trials with mice to investigate the effect of unevenly misaligned chromosomes on breast cancer. When the scientists triggered aberrant distribution of chromosomes in the mammary gland cells of mice, this delayed the development of breast cancer. However, the developing tumors appeared to have a selection advantage: they continued to grow even when the growth-promoting cancer gene had been switched off. ... Full story

Gene Mutation “Hotspots” Linked to Better Breast Cancer Outcomes

Genetic phenomenon associated with low tumor invasiveness and longer patient survival could inform prognosis and help identify patients who would best respond to immunotherapy and other treatments ... Full story

Cancer drug designed at Bath shows continuing clinical impact

New clinical data were revealed at the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago last week, the world’s largest cancer congress, for Irosustat, a drug pioneered at the University of Bath that could prolong the lives of women with breast cancer. ... Full story
