UCI-led study reveals that cells involved in allergies also play a key role in survival

University of California, Irvine

In a UCI-led study, researchers found evidence that mast cells, an important group of immune cells typically associated with allergies, actually enable the body to survive fasting or intense exercise. The study was published today in Cell Metabolism.

Scientists Reveal New Cystic Fibrosis Treatments Work Best in Inflamed Airways

University of North Carolina Health Care System

A UNC School of Medicine study shows that two cystic fibrosis (CF) drugs aimed at correcting the defected CFTR protein seem to be more effective when a patient’s airway is inflamed. This is the first study to evaluate the efficacy of these drugs under inflammatory conditions relevant to CF airways.

Low Copper Levels Linked to Fatter Fat Cells

Johns Hopkins Medicine

In studies of mouse cells, Johns Hopkins researchers have found that low levels of cellular copper appear to make fat cells fatter by altering how cells process their main metabolic fuels, such as fat and sugar.

Cancer Patients with Rare Deadly Brain Infection Treated Successfully with Off-the-Shelf Adoptive T-Cell Therapy in Clinical Trial

University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center

An emerging treatment known as adoptive T-cell therapy has proven effective in a Phase II clinical trial for treating progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML), a rare and often fatal brain infection sometimes observed in patients with cancer and other diseases in which the immune system is compromised. The study, led by Katy Rezvani, M.D., Ph.D., professor, Department of Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, showed marked improvement in three PML patients infused with donor T cells targeting the BK virus. Findings were published in the Oct. 11 online issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

Mayo Clinic researchers identify gene types driving racial disparities in myeloma

Mayo Clinic

ROCHESTER Minn. — Researchers at Mayo Clinic have identified three specific gene types that account for a known two-to-three-fold increase in myeloma diagnoses among African-Americans. Researchers also demonstrated the ability to study race and racial admixture more accurately using DNA analysis. The findings were published today in Blood Cancer Journal.

Crosstalk between fallopian tube, ovary may drive the spread of ovarian cancer

University of Illinois at Chicago

New research shows that cancer cells in the fallopian tube affect normal chemical signaling between reproductive tissues and stimulate the release of norepinephrine from the ovary, causing cancer cells to migrate.

New Options for Breast Cancer Drug Development Found in Estrogen Receptors

Case Western Reserve University

Many breast cancer drugs block estrogen receptors inside cancer cells. Blocking the receptors early in disease progression staves off metastasis. But most patients with advanced disease eventually develop drug resistance, leaving doctors desperate for alternatives. Now, researchers from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have uncovered a previously uncharacterized, bridge-like structure within the human estrogen receptor that could serve as a valuable new drug target. In Nature Communications, researchers describe a “burning the bridge” strategy to disrupting the estrogen receptor, and how to screen breast cancer drugs designed to do it.
