Acute Myeloid Leukemia Patients Have Reduced Early Mortality at NCI-Designated Cancer Centers

UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center

Researchers at UC Davis have shown that patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who received their care at a National Cancer Institute (NCI) cancer center in California had a dramatically reduced risk of early mortality. Using data from the California Cancer Registry and the Patient Discharge Dataset, the team determined that the risk was reduced by 53 percent. These findings were reported in February in the journal Cancer.

Light-Triggered Nanoparticles Show Promise Against Metastatic Cancer

Washington University in St. Louis

A new anti-cancer strategy wields light as a precision weapon. Unlike traditional light therapy — which is limited to the skin and areas accessible with an endoscope — this technique can target and attack cancer cells that have spread deep inside the body, according to researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
