Lewis Cantley to Receive 2015 AACI Distinguished Scientist Award
The Association of American Cancer Institutes will present the AACI Distinguished Scientist Award to Lewis Cantley, PhD, on October 26, during the 2015 AACI/CCAF Annual Meeting, in Washington, DC. Prior to the award presentation, Dr. Cantley will deliver a talk entitled, "Targeting PI3K for Cancer Therapy".

A cell biologist and biochemist who serves as The Margaret and Herman Sokol Professor in Oncology Research and director of the Sandra and Edward Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell Medical College, Dr. Cantley's pioneering research has resulted in revolutionary treatments for cancer, diabetes and autoimmune diseases. Among his research contributions was the discovery of the phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway, which enabled a new understanding of the way biochemical signaling pathways control normal cell growth and how they can trigger the development of cancer when they are defective. more...

Plant Extract From Traditional Indian Medicine May Fight Blood Cancer
UK Markey Cancer Center
A University of Kentucky study shows that withaferin A, a component of Withania somnifera (winter cherry) plant extract, may hold promise as a new treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Winter cherry extract was used in traditional Ayurvedic Indian medicine for thousands of years before it caught the interest of Subbarao Bondada, PhD, a University of Kentucky College of Medicine professor and researcher for the UK Markey Cancer Center. Because withaferin A shows promise in treating other cancers without the side effects associated with current treatments, Dr. Bondada's laboratory tested it against lymphoma. more...
Cell-Surface Discovery Could Lead to Major Breakthrough in Cancer Treatment
University of Virginia Cancer Center
University of Virginia School of Medicine researchers have discovered a new strategy for attacking cancer cells that could fundamentally alter the way doctors treat and prevent the deadly disease.

Discovery Marks Milestone in Understanding Treatment-Resistant Melanoma
Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, UCLA
A new three-year study led by Roger Lo, MD, PhD, could mark a milestone in the quest to track how cancer changes in response to a powerful drug. The findings, Lo said, could lead to methods that would enable early detection of drug-resistant tumor cells and to new therapies designed to suppress resistance as soon as therapy begins. Collaborating with physicians from Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, Dr. Lo studied drug resistance by analyzing samples of patients’ melanoma tumors both before they underwent therapy and when the disease recurred. more...
Generational Gap Seen in Smoking Cessation in Northern Appalachia
Roswell Park Cancer Institute
Significant differences in attitudes toward smoking cessation are reported between two generations of smokers in Northern Appalachia in new research from Roswell Park Cancer Institute. The qualitative study about beliefs, attitudes and experiences of current and former smokers in Northern Appalachian communities, published in the Journal of Community Health, contributes novel information about smoking cessation. Elisa Rodriguez, PhD, was lead author of the study. more...
Building Human Breast Tissue, Cell by Cell
UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center
The next frontier in developing therapies for cancer and other diseases could come through studying organ development or tumor growth in living humans. Problem is, there's no ethical way of doing that using current technology. Zev Gartner, PhD, has focused on the next best thing: His lab is building fully functioning 3-D human tissue, cell by cell. It sounds straight out of a Frankenstein novel, but Dr. Gartner is working to grow the milk-producing tissues of the human breast to create a living, working model of the human mammary gland that grows, ages and responds to hormone signals just like the real thing. more...
Vaccine for Glioblastoma Brain Cancers Moves on to Larger, Multisite Study
Roswell Park Cancer Institute
An innovative vaccine therapy developed at Roswell Park Cancer Institute is being tested in a multisite clinical trial involving 50 patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma brain tumors. The phase II study, now accruing patients at both Roswell Park and the Cleveland Clinic, will assess the effectiveness of the SurVaxM vaccine in combination with standard chemotherapy as treatment for this often-fatal cancer. The vaccine, developed by Roswell Park faculty members Robert Fenstermaker, MD, and Michael Ciesielski, PhD, targets survivin, a cell-survival protein that's present in the vast majority of cancers, including glioblastoma. more...
Clinical Trial Shows Promise of "Basket Studies" for Cancer Drugs
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
A landmark study led by Memorial Sloan Kettering researchers has demonstrated the potential of precision medicine in cancer treatment. Results of an international clinical trial, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, show that a drug focused on a single genetic mutation can be effective across multiple cancer types — although blocking the mutation does not guarantee success. more...
Cancer Treatment Developed at UK Approved for Clinical Trials
UK Markey Cancer Center
An investigational medical device for the treatment of late stage lung cancer, pioneered by researchers at University of Kentucky, has been approved for clinical trials by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). UK is the only site in the country approved to test this new treatment on advanced lung cancer patients. The Exatherm Total Body Hyperthermia System (Exatherm-TBH) was developed at UK in a public-private partnership with Exatherm Inc. The project is supported by grant funding from the National Institutes of Health. more...
Genetic Testing All Women for Breast Cancer Might not be Worth the Cost
Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, UCLA
Women who are carriers of mutated BRCA genes are known to have a significantly higher risk for developing breast and ovarian cancers than those who don't. But a new study by UCLA faculty questions the value of screening for the genetic mutations in the general population-including those who do not have cancer or have no family history of the disease-because of the high cost. The paper was authored by Patricia Ganz, MD. more...
Big Data Tool to Reveal Immune System Role in Diseases
Mount Sinai Health System Tisch Cancer Institute
Researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Princeton University have designed a new online tool that predicts the role of key proteins and genes in diseases of the human immune system. Called "ImmuNet", the tool uses information compiled from 38,088 public experiments to predict new immune pathway interactions, mechanisms, and disease-associated genes. more...
Pancreatic Cancer Subtypes Found in Largest Gene Expression Analysis of the Disease
UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center
Dense surrounding tissue can block drugs from reaching pancreatic cancer tumors, but it can also help prevent the cancer from spreading. Now a new study by UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers and collaborators helps explain the conflicting role of the surrounding tissue known as stroma. In the study, the researchers revealed that based on molecular characteristics, there are two subtypes of pancreatic cancer stroma. more...
Scientists Discover that an Anti-Inflammatory Drug Acts Against Ovarian Cancer
University of New Mexico Cancer Center
Research from a UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center team, led by Angela Wandinger-Ness, PhD, Laurie Hudson, PhD, and Carolyn Muller, MD, FACOG, has found a novel activity of a post-operative pain medication. The team tested the equal mixture of R- and S-ketorolac in women with ovarian cancer. Ketorolac, marketed as Toradol®, is approved for clinical use in the United States for pain after surgery and is given as a racemic mixture. The research demonstrated that when ketorolac is injected into the bloodstream, the body removes S-ketorolac more rapidly and allows R-ketorolac to move to and gather in the peritoneal cavity. more...
Two-Drug Combination Shows Promise Against One Type of Pancreatic Cancer
UF Health Cancer Center
One form of pancreatic cancer has a new enemy: a two-drug combination discovered by UF Health researchers that inhibits tumors and kills cancer cells in mouse models. For the first time, researchers have shown that a certain protein becomes overabundant in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, allowing them to thrive. They also found that pairing a synthetic compound with an existing drug provides a more effective anticancer punch than a single drug. more...
Combining Epigenetic Therapies With Immunotherapies Likely to Improve Outcomes
American Association for Cancer Research (AACR)
