An analysis of data from five major studies of testicular cancer has identified new genetic locations that could be susceptible to inherited testicular germ cell tumors. The findings, which researchers call a success story for genome mapping, could help doctors understand which men are at the highest risk of developing the disease and signal them to screen those patients.

Whitehead’s Weng Receives Grant From Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation to Study Herbs That May Boost Mothers’ Milk

Many cultures traditionally use herbs believed to increase milk supply – so called galactagogues – although scientific data are lacking. Now Whitehead Institute Member Jing-Ke Weng and the Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation are teaming up to explore the effects of galactagogues on milk production.

Breast Cancer Special Report in NEJM Shows Why Women 40-49 Should Get Regular Mammograms

Lannin and Wang, published June 8 in the New England Journal of Medicine, showed that younger women of screening age are more likely to develop aggressive breast cancers than older women. This added risk reinforces why women should start annual mammography screening at age 40.
