Researchers Analyze Karyotype Complexity and Prognosis in Acute Myeloid Leukemia

January 29, 2016

Diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is pivoted around cytogenetic analysis of patient bone marrow or peripheral blood cultures. The World Health Organization classification of tumors of the hematopoietic and lymphoid tissues is based on cytogenetic features along with other clinical, morphological, and immunophenotypic characteristics.

Bladder Cancer Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention May Be Aided by Tumor Suppressor Gene

January 22, 2016

Bladder cancer remains the costliest cancer to treat per capita, taking into account diagnostic testing, management, and long-term follow-up. Continued development of urine-based biomarker diagnostic tests may help replace the costly and more invasive techniques of imaging, cytology, and cystoscopy for cancer detection. Genome-wide expression and sequencing studies have identified genes and pathways considered key drivers of bladder cancer.

Research Team Challenges Plant-Derived Molecule for the Treatment of NSCLC

January 14, 2016

A team from the Scripps Research Institute and Bristol-Myers Squibb recently collaborated to collectively develop a method for complete chemical synthesis of antroquinonol and to test the biologic activity of the chemically synthesized product. Contrary to previous reports, the study reported minimal in vitro and in vivo antitumor activity of chemically synthesized antroquinonol A.
