Researchers find adult stem cell characteristics in aggressive cancers from different tissues

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers have discovered genetic similarities between the adult stem cells responsible for maintaining and repairing epithelial tissues — which line all of the organs and cavities inside the body — and the cells that drive aggressive epithelial cancers. Their findings could bring about a better understanding of how aggressive, treatment-resistant cancers develop and progress, and could eventually lead to new drugs for a range of advanced epithelial cancers such as lung, prostate and bladder cancers.

With STDs at an all-time high, why aren’t more people getting a proven treatment? U-M team examines reasons

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

Nearly 2.3 million times last year, Americans learned they had a sexually transmitted disease. But despite these record-high infection rates for chlamydia and gonorrhea, most patients only receive treatment for their own infection – when they probably could get antibiotics or a prescription for their partner at the same time. A team of physicians examines the barriers that stand in the way of getting expedited partner therapy to more people.

Roswell Park Team Identifies Possible Cause of Resistance to Prostate Cancer Treatment

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center

A Roswell Park-led research team has linked the development of castration-resistant prostate cancer and resistance to treatment to a lack of androgen receptor expression in prostate cancer cells, identifying a new therapeutic target. Their findings were published in the journal Nature Communications.

Hormone Therapy Can Make Prostate Cancer Worse, Study Finds

Cedars-Sinai

Scientists at Cedars-Sinai have discovered how prostate cancer can sometimes withstand and outwit a standard hormone therapy, causing the cancer to spread. Their findings also point to a simple blood test that may help doctors predict when this type of hormone therapy resistance will occur.
