Cancer Research: Why certain cells repel one another ♦ Cancer test predicts treatment outcome ♦ Gene therapy doubles survival in recurrent glioblastoma

Primary care doctors are ill-prepared to deal with growing demand for cancer care Leading primary care professionals and cancer experts warn that primary care doctors will not be able to cope with the rising demand for cancer care in high-income countries -- predicted to double within the next 15 years.
The solution to a 50-year-old riddle: Why certain cells repel one another When cells from the connective tissue collide, they repel one another -- this phenomenon was discovered more than 50 years ago. It is only now, however, that researchers have discovered the molecular basis for this process. Their findings could have important implications for cancer research.
Cancer test predicts treatment outcome Researchers have announced a new tool in the fight against cancer, with the development of a world-first test that will direct treatment choices for patients with some forms of blood cancer.
Gene therapy doubles survival in recurrent glioblastoma An experimental gene therapy essentially doubled the overall survival of patients with recurrent glioblastoma compared to the current standard of care.
Genes of colon cancer recurrence differs among blacks, whites and Asians The genetic makeup of colon cancer tumors and survival rates for patients with the disease differ by race, according to a study. Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in both men and women with more than 93,000 cases estimated to be diagnosed in 2015. Researchers have long known that blacks develop colon cancer at an earlier age and blacks with colon cancer are at higher risk of dying than whites. However, it has been difficult to identify why the differences in survival exis
