Melanoma drug's link to other skin cancers identified
The recently approved drug vemurafenib (Zelboraf) has been hailed as a
breakthrough in the treatment of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin

develop a troublesome side effect: secondary skin cancers called
squamous cell carcinomas.

Scriptaid Revives {*filter*} Cancer Treatment Receptivity
A study by researchers from the Sbarro Institute for Cancer Research
and Molecular Medicine, reveals that despite the effectiveness of
endocrine therapy for {*filter*} cancer, responsiveness to the treatment
depends on expression of estrogen receptors in {*filter*} cancer cells.
However, Dr. Laura Giacinti, lead investigator of the study reports on
a new molecule, Scriptaid, which revives receptivity to the treatment
in {*filter*} cancer cell lines that previously tested negative for the
expression of estrogen receptors. The study appears in the Journal of
Cellular Physiology..

Metastasis of pancreatic cancer in action
Ben Stanger, MD, PhD, assistant professor of Medicine in the Division
of Gastroenterology at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of
Pennsylvania, and Andrew Rhim, MD, a Gastroenterology Fellow in the
Stanger lab, discovered that pancreatic cancer cells in an animal
model begin to spread before clinically obvious tumor tissue is
detected. What's more, they showed that inflammation enhances cancer
progression in part by facilitating a cellular transformation that
leads to entry of cancer cells into the circulation. They report their
findings this week in Cell.
