Cancer Research: Popular Soda Ingredient Ups Cancer Risk--Milk proteins to treatment cancer-- Cancer treatment with new laser tech-- Drug target in certain breast and ovarian cancers

Popular Soda Ingredient Ups Cancer Risk  Public health researchers have analyzed soda consumption data in order to characterize people's exposure to a potentially carcinogenic by product of some types of caramel color. Caramel color is a common ingredient in colas and other dark soft drinks. Continue Reading
Milk proteins show promise in prevention and treatment of cancer  In a review of existing research, a team of Australian researchers found that milk proteins, consisting of short sequences called peptides, are potential candidates for the development of anticancer agents and can be generated by enzymatic action, such as those experienced during digestion or food processing, including fermentation. Their findings are in the recent issue of … Continue Reading
Potentially faster and more accurate mode of cancer treatment with new laser technology  Surgeons rely on 200-year-old technology when removing cancer -- sight and touch -- to determine how much to remove and what to leave alone. Laser technology has the promise to help a surgeon better determine if an area is cancer or healthy tissue. Moreover, when combined with laser treatment for cancer, this work lays the groundwork for laser robotic treatment of cancer.Continue Reading
Promising drug target in certain breast and ovarian cancers Scientists indicate that the pool of patients who can benefit from the drug olaparib is potentially much wider – and offers a ready means of identifying them. Continue Reading
Novel strategy to prevent progression of inflammation-associated cancers  By targeting the specific pathological function of the 'culprit' molecule rather than inhibiting its gene expression, new approach facilitates development of cancer drugs with fewer side effects  Continue Reading
