Cancer Research:New gene map reveals cancer's Achilles heel ♦ Cognitive-behavioral stress management in breast cancer ♦ Breast MRI after mammography may identify additional aggressive cancers

Breast MRI after mammography may identify additional aggressive cancers Additional breast cancers found with MRI are sometimes larger and potentially more aggressive than those found on mammography.In some cases MRI findings of additional cancers not seen on mammography may necessitate a change in treatment.
New gene map reveals cancer's Achilles heel Scientists have mapped out the genes that keep our cells alive, creating a long-awaited foothold for understanding how our genome works and which genes are crucial in disease like cancer.
Unassuming 'Swiss Army knife'-like protein key to new cancer drug's therapeutic action When preliminary tests show that a new drug has remarkable effectiveness against a lethal illness, everyone wants to know how it works. A team reports a surprising mechanism through which an important new drug against leukemia, JQ1, exerts its therapeutic effect.
Cognitive-behavioral stress management in breast cancer Women who were provided with skills to manage stress early in their breast cancer treatment show greater length of survival and longer time till disease recurrence over eight to 15 years after their original diagnosis, newly published research from a randomized trial shows.
