Structural insights reveal how SPOP protein contributes to cancer
Scientists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital captured the 3D structure of SPOP, revealing how mutations in previously unappreciated regions fuel cancer.
ASTRO issues updated guideline on radiation therapy for endometrial cancer
A newly updated clinical guideline from the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) provides recommendations on the use of radiation therapy and systemic therapy after surgery to treat patients with endometrial cancer. The guideline also considers the role of surgical staging and molecular profiling techniques in determining whether a patient should receive post-operative therapy. The guideline is published in the January/February 2023 issue of Practical Radiation Oncology.
New Study Shows Sugar-Sweetened Drinks Increase Risk of Cancer Mortality
In a large study led by researchers at the American Cancer Society, men and women who drank two or more servings of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB) per day, compared to people who never drank, had a five percent increased risk of death from an obesity-related cancer, including gastrointestinal, postmenopausal breast, endometrial and kidney cancer.
Sylvester Researchers Study Vaginal Microbiome’s Role in Screening for Endometrial Cancer
The vaginal microbiome differentiates benign disease from endometrial cancer and can even provide insight about the specific endometrial cancer type and disease severity, according to a study by investigators at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of…
Screening often misses endometrial cancer in Black women
In this study using a simulated cohort, TVUS endometrial thickness screening missed over four times more cases of endometrial cancer among Black women versus White women owing to the greater prevalence of fibroids and non-endometrioid histology type that occurs among Black women.
Study Shows New Treatment Pathway to Prevent and Treat Endometrial Cancer Recurrence
In a new study led by Yale Cancer Center, researchers demonstrate sex hormones and insulin growth factors are associated with recurrence risk of endometrial cancer.
Firefly Fluorescence Imaging Helps Surgeons Identify Sentinel Lymph Nodes During Robotic Endometrial Cancer Surgery
Near-infrared imaging technology prevents the removal of unnecessary lymph nodes and lowers the risk of lymphedema after surgery
Study Validates Combination Therapy for Aggressive Endometrial Cancer
Yale Cancer Center (YCC) scientists have found that combining the targeted drug trastuzumab with chemotherapy significantly improves survival rates for women with a rare, aggressive form of endometrial cancer.
New, Detailed Molecular Roadmap Boosts Fight Against Endometrial Cancer
Scientists have taken an unprecedented look at proteins involved in endometrial cancer, commonly known as uterine cancer. The study offers insights about which patients will need aggressive treatment and which won’t, and offers clues about why a common cancer treatment is not effective with some patients.
Utah Researchers Discover a Key Protein in Endometrial Cancer Growth
New research, published today in the journal Cancer Research, outlines findings scientists hope will advance our understanding of endometrial cancer and lead to more effective treatments.
Grant to help UniSA researchers develop personalised cancer treatment
Personalised cancer treatment is one step closer to becoming a reality for more patients, thanks to a Cancer Council Beat Cancer Project grant awarded to University of South Australia researcher Dr Stephanie Reuter Lange to explore how computer-based modelling can optimise cancer treatment and remove the need for expensive clinical trials.
