Epigenetic Reprogramming of HOXC10 in Breast Cancer
Sun, 30 Mar 2014

Aromatase inhibitors (AI) are use in the treatment of estrogen receptor (ER) positive breast cancer, but tumors often develop resistance to these. In the latest edition of Science Translational Medicine Thushangi Pathiraja and colleagues identified ways in which cancer cells develop this resistance by ’epigenic reprogramming’  – using the mechanisms for ‘switching off ‘ genes […]

Mitochondrial DNA – role in cancer?
Thu, 13 Mar 2014

Mitochondria (plural of mitochondrion) are membrane-bound organelles (the cell’s ‘mini organs’) found in nearly all cells which play a vital role as “cellular power plants” by generating adenosine triphosphate (ATP), used by cells as a source of chemical energy. Mitochondria also play a role in cellular signaling, cellular differentiation, cell death, control of the cell […]

New insight into Prostate Cancer susceptibility
Sat, 01 Feb 2014

New research published in Nature Genetics (February 2014) by Qilai Huang and colleagues gives a new insight into the mechanisms by which men with a specific polymorphism (variation in a gene) have increased susceptibility to Prostate Cancer. The team involving researchers in Finland, Sweden and China found that the ‘rs339331′ polymorphism is located  within a functional binding […]

CUX1 gene mutations linked to tumour growth
Wed, 11 Dec 2013

A new study from the Sanger Institute (Wong CC et al. Nature Genetivs, 2013) found that CUX1 is mutated at a relatively low frequency, but across many different types of cancer. CancerIndex has added a page: geneweb/CUX1.htm The study used genetic data from over 7,600 cancer patients, collected and sequenced by the International Cancer Genome [more...]

Cancer Treatments and Hair Loss
Thu, 28 Nov 2013

Hair loss (alopecia) is a common and usually temporary, but often very distressing, side effect of chemotherapy. CancerIndex has split out information on chemotherapy related alopecia onto a dedicated page: Alopecia.htm As well as links to guides on this topic the page also includes an NHS Choices video in which Jessica, a breast cancer patient, [more...]

Cancer Centers – Update
Sat, 23 Nov 2013

Our list of Cancer Centres has been updated: clinks8.htm It has grown to a list of over 260 centers, so rather than the very long static list that it used to be, it is now displayed in a ‘data table’ that you can search, filter and order. Does this work for you? I’d love to [more...]
