Cancer Research:Single-agent phototherapy offers new tool to fight cancer ♦Targeted therapy for gastric cancer possible ♦ utophagy works in cell nucleus to guard against start of cancer

Single-agent phototherapy system offers significant new tool to fight cancer Researchers have announced an important advance in the field of cancer imaging and phototherapy, using a single-agent system that may ultimately change the efficacy of cancer surgery and treatment around the world.
Potential new therapy for triple-negative breast cancer shows promise in lab studies Recent laboratory findings provide novel insight into potential new therapeutic approaches for triple-negative breast cancer, a particularly difficult to treat and aggressive form of the disease.
Breast cancer becoming as common among African-American women as among white women New data finds that rates among African-American women in the United States have continued to increase, converging with rates among white women and closing a gap that had existed for decades
Targeted therapy for gastric cancer possible Gastric cancer, otherwise known as stomach cancer, does not respond well to existing treatments and it is currently the third leading cause of cancer death in the world (after lung and liver cancer). Researchers have discovered that certain drugs, currently used to treat breast, ovarian and pancreatic cancers, could also be used to treat certain gastric cancers with a particular pattern of mutations
Autophagy works in cell nucleus to guard against start of cancer Autophagy, the degradation of unwanted cellular bits and pieces by the cell itself, has been shown for the first time to also work in the cell nucleus. In addition, in this setting autophagy plays a role in guarding against the start of cancer and is related to the aging process
