Cancer Research: Improveing breast cancer treatment ♦ Adding ultrasound to breast screening results in higher rate of detection ♦ New breast cancer stem cell clues may help develop therapeutics

Researchers strive to improve breast cancer treatment Creating a chemotherapeutic-resistant breast cancer cell line begins with a complete understanding of what causes resistant tumors and how to prevent them. Researchers are striving to do just that.
Adding ultrasound to breast screening results in higher rate of detection for women Adding ultrasound to standard mammography tests in breast screening could result in improved rates of detection for breast cancer in women in Japan.
Targeted treatment produces rapid shrinkage of recurrent, BRAF-mutant brain tumor Investigators report the first successful use of a targeted therapy to treat a patient with BRAF-mutant craniopharyngioma, a debilitating, recurrent brain tumor.
New breast cancer stem cell clues may help develop therapeutics Researchers have identified a new regulatory pathway that may play an important role in basal-like breast cancer, a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer often referred to as 'triple negative.' This pathway may serve as a target for the development of an effective therapeutic.
