Combination Drug Therapy Shows Promise for Recurrent Endometrial Cancer

Researchers seeking to improve treatment outcomes for women with recurrent endometrial cancer – the most commonly diagnosed gynecologic malignancy in the U.S., killing more than 8,000 women each year – have reported positive results through targeted therapy that uses a combination of the drugs everolimus and letrozole. Their findings have been reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. ... Full story

Novel Radioguided Brain Surgery Technique Could Help Pinpoint Cancerous Tissue

Reston, Va. – A novel radioguided surgery technique could quickly and effectively identify residual cancer cells during brain tumor surgery, with low radiation exposure for both patients and surgeons. The study, featured in the January 2015 issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, reports that Y-90 DOTATOC, a beta-minus–emitting tracer, can effectively delineate the margins of meningiomas and high-grade gliomas. ...

Research implicates metabolic process of the liver in the spread of colorectal cancer

Colorectal cancer is a cancer on the move: about 50 percent of patients with the disease see their cancer spread, typically to the liver. By identifying genes that become activated in cancer cells that successfully travel — metastasize — to the liver, researchers at Rockefeller have implicated metabolic processes within the liver as a possible means by which starving transient cancer cells can go on to form deadly new colonies. The researchers say their finding represents vulnerability in metastasizing cancer cells that could be exploited with new drugs. ... Full story
