Cancer Research:Breast cancer detection rate using ultrasound is shown to be comparable to mammography ♦ New method for better treatment of breast cancer ♦ New target for potential blood cancer treatment

Simple shell of plant virus sparks immune response against cancer Shells of cowpea mosaic virus inhaled into a lung tumor or injected into ovarian, colon or breast tumors, not only triggered the immune system in mice to wipe out the tumors, but provides systemic protection against metastases.
New target for potential blood cancer treatment Mutations present in a blood cancer known as follicular lymphoma have revealed new molecular targets for potential treatments, according to researchers
New method for better treatment of breast cancer A novel imaging-based method for defining appropriateness of breast cancer treatment is as accurate as the current standard-of-care and could reduce the need for invasive tissue sampling, new research shows. The results suggest that the method might lead to more optimal treatment of individual patients
Breast cancer detection rate using ultrasound is shown to be comparable to mammography The use of ultrasound in detecting breast cancer has been shown to be comparable in its sensitivity to that of mammography and should be considered when testing for the disease.
