Scientists Pinpoint Gene to Blame for Poorer Survival Rate in Early-Onset Breast Cancer Patients

A new study led by scientists at the University of Southampton has found that inherited variation in a particular gene may be to blame for the lower survival rate of patients diagnosed with early-onset breast cancer.

Estudio Identifica ObstáCulos Al Trasplante Como Terapia Para Mieloma MúLtiple en Minorías Raciales

Un estudio de Mayo Clinic descubrió que entre los obstáculos para que los pacientes se sometan al trasplante de células madre como parte del tratamiento para el mieloma múltiple están la educación, el seguro de salud y el acceso a atención médica en una institución con gran volumen de pacientes.

Stress-induced sleep

Stressed-Out Worms Hit the Snooze Button

When you catch a nasty cold, curling up in bed to sleep may be the only activity you can manage. Sleeping in response to stress isn’t a uniquely human behavior: many other animals have the same reaction, and it’s not clear why. While the circadian sleep that follows the pattern of the clock has been studied extensively, sleep that’s triggered by stress is far less understood.

Researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center uncovered a novel gene they named THOR. It's a long non-coding RNA that plays a role in cancer development. Knocking it out can halt the growth of tumors.

What Keeps Stem Cells in Their Undifferentiated State?

A special cluster of proteins helps unwind DNA during cell division and plays a key role in keeping stem cells in their immature state. This UNC study also points to a better understanding of how cancer cells manage to sustain rapid cell division without triggering cell death.
