Tumors or cancer located in bone tissue or specific BONES.
Non-invasive method of demonstrating internal anatomy based on the principle that atomic nuclei in a strong magnetic field absorb pulses of radiofrequency energy and emit them as radiowaves which can be reconstructed into computerized images. The concept includes proton spin tomographic techniques.
Tumors or cancer of the PHARYNX.
Exfoliate neoplastic cells circulating in the blood and associated with metastasizing tumors.
A deoxyribonucleotide polymer that is the primary genetic material of all cells. Eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms normally contain DNA in a double-stranded state, yet several important biological processes transiently involve single-stranded regions. DNA, which consists of a polysugar-phosphate backbone possessing projections of purines (adenine and guanine) and pyrimidines (thymine and cytosine), forms a double helix that is held together by hydrogen bonds between these purines and pyrimidines (adenine to thymine and guanine to cytosine).
A gland in males that surrounds the neck of the URINARY BLADDER and the URETHRA. It secretes a substance that liquefies coagulated semen. It is situated in the pelvic cavity behind the lower part of the PUBIC SYMPHYSIS, above the deep layer of the triangular ligament, and rests upon the RECTUM.
The type species of ORTHOPOXVIRUS, related to COWPOX VIRUS, but whose true origin is unknown. It has been used as a live vaccine against SMALLPOX. It is also used as a vector for inserting foreign DNA into animals. Rabbitpox virus is a subspecies of VACCINIA VIRUS.
The total amount (cell number, weight, size or volume) of tumor cells or tissue in the body.
An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.
A glycoprotein that is secreted into the luminal surface of the epithelia in the gastrointestinal tract. It is found in the feces and pancreaticobiliary secretions and is used to monitor the response to colon cancer treatment.
Technique using an instrument system for making, processing, and displaying one or more measurements on individual cells obtained from a cell suspension. Cells are usually stained with one or more fluorescent dyes specific to cell components of interest, e.g., DNA, and fluorescence of each cell is measured as it rapidly transverses the excitation beam (laser or mercury arc lamp). Fluorescence provides a quantitative measure of various biochemical and biophysical properties of the cell, as well as a basis for cell sorting. Other measurable optical parameters include light absorption and light scattering, the latter being applicable to the measurement of cell size, shape, density, granularity, and stain uptake.
Transplantation between animals of different species.
Biochemical identification of mutational changes in a nucleotide sequence.
The introduction of a phosphoryl group into a compound through the formation of an ester bond between the compound and a phosphorus moiety.
A statistical technique that isolates and assesses the contributions of categorical independent variables to variation in the mean of a continuous dependent variable.
The process of intracellular viral multiplication, consisting of the synthesis of PROTEINS; NUCLEIC ACIDS; and sometimes LIPIDS, and their assembly into a new infectious particle.
Ligand-binding assays that measure protein-protein, protein-small molecule, or protein-nucleic acid interactions using a very large set of capturing molecules, i.e., those attached separately on a solid support, to measure the presence or interaction of target molecules in the sample.
Methods which attempt to express in replicable terms the level of CELL DIFFERENTIATION in neoplasms as increasing ANAPLASIA correlates with the aggressiveness of the neoplasm.
A pyrimidine analog that is an antineoplastic antimetabolite. It interferes with DNA synthesis by blocking the THYMIDYLATE SYNTHETASE conversion of deoxyuridylic acid to thymidylic acid.

(
  • The 2019 American Society of Clinical Oncology's meeting might be in the books, but the impact of some of the data released at the conference are certain to have implications for cancer patients for years to come. (
  • Mutations that cause oesophageal adenocarcinoma (OAC) have been mapped in unprecedented detail - unveiling that more than half could be targeted by drugs currently in trials for other cancer types. (
  • Cancer Research UK researchers at the University of Cambridge used whole genome sequencing and whole exome sequencing* to map mutations in OAC, the main subtype of oesophageal cancer in England. (
  • In the study, driver mutations for OAC were found in 99% of patients and more than 50% were sensitive to drugs (CDK4/6 inhibitors) already in clinical trials for breast cancer. (
  • These mutations are often seen in other cancer types, but are rarely found in oesophageal cancer. (
  • Understanding which mutations are causing the disease could lead to targeted treatments and earlier detection. (
  • Furthermore, these methylation changes appear to be an early event that precedes the appearance of genetic mutations, another precursor to cancer. (
  • Women with a family history of breast cancer or those who test positive for the BRCA1 (breast cancer gene 1) or BRCA2 (breast cancer gene 2) mutations may want to talk to their physicians about beginning annual screening mammograms earlier than age 40, as early as age 25 in some cases. (
  • However, there are some smokers that don't develop lung cancer, and only a small proportion (5-10%) of breast cancers can be attributed to hereditary mutations. (
  • The key findings were that women with post-menopausal breast cancer had a high rate of inherited mutations in a range of cancer-causing genes, and that overall this mutation rate did not diminish with age. (
  • PARP inhibitors are known to be effective in patients with ovarian cancer (OC) and germline mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes ( BRCA mutations). (

  • One of these, the hereditary breast and ovary cancer syndrome (HBOCS), associated with germline mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, is believed to cause approximately 10-15% of all breast cancers (BCs) [ 3 ]. (
  • Learn about gene changes called mutations, how inherited mutations can lead to cancer, what types of cancer may be hereditary and how parents can pass gene mutations to their children. (
  • Read about different genes that are linked to hereditary cancer and the risks associated with inherited mutations in these genes. (
  • BIRC3 mutations (2.5%) were associated with unmutated IGHV genes (U-CLL), del(11q) and trisomy 12, whereas MYD88 mutations (2.2%) were exclusively found among M-CLL. (
  • In conclusion, we support the clinical relevance of novel recurrent mutations in CLL, highlighting the adverse impact of SF3B1 and TP53 mutations, even independent of IGHV mutational status, thus underscoring the need for urgent standardization/harmonization of the detection methods. (
  • Mutations in this gene are responsible for approximately 40% of inherited breast cancers and more than 80% of inherited breast and ovarian cancers. (
  • Many alternatively spliced transcript variants, some of which are disease-associated mutations, have been described for this gene, but the full-length natures of only some of these variants has been described. (
  • When Barouch and his colleagues exposed 44 rhesus monkeys to SIV and conducted analyses of the animals on days 0, 1, 3, 7 and 10 following exposure, they found that SIV could disseminate rapidly through the body, with viral RNA (SIV's genetic material) present in at least one tissue outside the reproductive tract in most monkeys analyzed 24 hours after exposure.

  • There are cancers that have clear genetic risk factors, for example some families carry a mutation in one of several particular genes, that causes breast cancer. (
  • The complex, and still poorly understood relationship between an individual's genetic profile and the environment in which they live is the key to how a person develops cancer, how the cancer affects them, and how they respond to particular cancer therapies. (
  • Nearly all cancers are caused by abnormalities in the genetic material of the transformed cells. (
  • Other cancer-promoting genetic abnormalities may be randomly acquired through errors in DNA replication, or are inherited, and thus present in all cells from birth. (
  • Genetic abnormalities found in cancer typically affect two general classes of genes. (
  • Our lab is involved studies using these models to understand the genetic drivers of cancer and drug resistance, with a focus on tumor heterogeneity and evolution. (
  • Because every patient in the study was tested and shown to be BRACAnalysis CDx positive, it reinforces that every patient with pancreatic cancer needs to undergo genetic testing to establish whether they are candidates for Lynparza, a PARP inhibitor and are likely to benefit from the drug," Johnathan Lancaster, MD, PhD, CMO, Myriad Genetics, told MD+DI. (
  • Women with OC commonly undergo genetic testing because the presence of a germline BRCA mutation impacts therapeutic decisions and is important for cancer surveillance in patients and their family members. (

  • Using DNA recovered from exhaled breath, researchers can examine the state of cells that line the lungs, and potentially detect cancer at an early stage, when treatment may be most successful. (
  • In particular, the researchers looked to see if the DNA they captured had been methylated, that is, tagged by a molecular "methyl" fragment, which blocks activation of the genes. (
  • The researchers analyzed the detailed methylation patterns of six tumor suppressor gene promotors, regions of DNA that serve as regulators of gene transcription. (
