How Breast Cancer Arises

Researchers trace the origin of certain breast cancers to genomic reshuffling -- rearrangement of chromosomes -- that activates cancer genes and ignites disease. The finding offers a long-missing explanation for many cases of the disease that remain unexplained by the classical model of breast ...

Gamma Delta T Cells Can Fight Aggressive Breast Cancer

Researchers discover a mechanism by which cancer cells escape the immune ...

A New Combination Therapy Regimen Shows Promising Results for Prostate Cancer

The combination of two oral medications has shown positive results in people with prostate cancer, whose disease has spread to other parts of the body. Compared with XTANDI plus placebo, the investigatory combination of TALZENNA and XTANDI ...

Scientists Discover a New Way to Help Prevent Breast Cancer 'Time Bomb'

Scientists have discovered why breast cancer cells that have spread to the lungs may 'wake up' following years of sleep -- forming incurable secondary tumors. Their research reveals the mechanism that triggers this breast cancer 'time bomb' -- and suggests a strategy to defuse ...
