*  Zaman Receives $3M Grant to Model How Cancer Spreads: NIH Funds Five-Year Project with Focus on Breast Cancer
Despite deep cuts in federal research spending due to sequestration, Associate Professor Muhammad Zaman (BME, MSE) has secured a five-year grant of more than $3 million from the National Institutes of Health to develop mathematical and computational models of how breast cancer cells move and communicate as they migrate from tumors, invade nearby tissue and proliferate.. By mapping this process from the molecular to the cellular level through detailed, comprehensive multiscale models based on strong experimental and computational data, Zaman and his collaborators-MIT Professors Frank Gertler, Roger Kamm and Douglas Lauffenberger, and a computational modeling team in Singapore-aim to uncover new pathways to control tumor development and metastasis in the breast, lung, and other organs.. Complex biochemical and biomechanical interactions govern how cancer cells spread from tumors and metastasize in nearby tissue. Much is known about the mechanics of how cancer cells migrate, but how biochemical ...

*  Immunotherapy for elderly cancer patients finds new promise in drug combination
We've shown that an aged immune system can combat cancer just as well as a young one if you remove the impediments to successful immunity, which are different that those in younger hosts," Dr. Curiel said. "We've shown that if you test all your immune therapy just in young mice and young people, you'll never learn how it works in older patients - the ones most at risk for cancer. You might conclude that drugs don't work in aged hosts, when they do. But they have to be combined with some help.". After discovering this in melanoma, the researchers then looked at whether the same action held true in colon cancer, a major cancer killer in the elderly.. "The details were different in colon cancer. The bad immune cells that increased in the aged mice and how they were knocked down by the drugs were different than in melanoma," Dr. Curiel said. "But the result was the same - we identified a drug combination that was highly effective in the aged mice.". That means that not only must this strategy be ...

*  Inorganic phosphate and the risk of cancer in the Swedish AMORIS study
Background: Both dietary and serum levels of inorganic phosphate (Pi) have been linked to development of cancer in experimental studies. This is the first population-based study investigating the relation between serum Pi and risk of cancer in humans. Methods: From the Swedish Apolipoprotein Mortality Risk (AMORIS) study, we selected all participants (,20 years old) with baseline measurements of serum Pi, calcium, alkaline phosphatase, glucose, and creatinine (n = 397,292). Multivariable Cox proportional hazards regression analyses were used to assess serum Pi in relation to overall cancer risk. Similar analyses were performed for specific cancer sites. Results: We found a higher overall cancer risk with increasing Pi levels in men (HR: 1.02 (95% CI: 1.00-1.04) for every SD increase in Pi), and a negative association in women (HR: 0.97 (95% CI: 0.96-0.99) for every SD increase in Pi). Further analyses for specific cancer sites showed a positive link between Pi quartiles and the risk of cancer of ...

*  Cancer Prevention after Cancer: Changing the Paradigm-a Report from the American Society of Preventive Oncology | Cancer...
Research indicates that physical activity not only helps prevent cancer (29, 30), it also confers mortality benefits for cancer survivors (31, 32). Yet, current cancer therapies do not address the association of lifestyle factors on prognosis and survivorship, despite the fact that obesity, weight gain, and physical inactivity are common in cancer patients before and after a cancer diagnosis (33). There is a strong association between having a higher body mass index (BMI) before cancer diagnosis and mortality from different cancer types. For instance, uterine cancer survivors who had a prediagnosis BMI greater than 35 have a 6-fold increase risk of mortality compared with survivors who had a prediagnosis BMI less than 25 (34). In early-stage breast cancer, a BMI greater than or equal to 40 is associated with at least a 5-fold increase of mortality risk compared with BMI less than 25 (35). Furthermore, a higher BMI may explain up to 14% and 20% of all deaths from cancer in men and women, ...

Cancer is a major health problem that can debilitate and destroy human lives. One out of every 4 deaths in the United States is caused by cancer. More than $124.6 billion was spent in direct medical costs for 13.7 million cancer survivors and 1.5 million newly diagnosed cancer patients in the United States in 2010. Increasing human life expectancy will inevitably raise cancer prevalence and the related costs. Consequently, the development of effective cancer prevention strategies is increasingly important. Histologically, the development of cancer involves multiple steps, which occur over several years after the initial carcinogen exposure from normal to hyperplasia, mild, moderate, and severe dysplasia, and carcinoma in situ, before finally progressing to invasive cancer (1). Throughout this long, multi-step developmental course, there is a wide scope of possible preventive approaches that can delay or prevent the development of cancer. Different cancer prevention strategies such as behavioral ...

*  Removing cancer cell debris improves conventional cancer treatments | EurekAlert! Science News
Cancer therapies are designed to kill tumor cells, but produce tumor cell debris in the process. In a study published in The Journal of Experimental Medicine, researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital and colleagues show that leftover debris can stimulate inflammation and tumor growth, but that molecules called resolvins can block that unwanted inflammatory response. The findings point towards a new way to enhance the effectiveness of current cancer therapies and potentially prevent tumor recurrence.

Human myeloid derived suppressor cells (MDSC) have been described as CD14-CD11b+CD33+HLADR- cells that exert T cell suppression via ROS, ARG1 and iNOS2. Here, we report a novel myeloid subset found within mononuclear fraction elutriated from apheresis samples of pediatric cancer patients vs. healthy controls. Of 60 pediatric cancer patients studied, we frequently observed expanded numbers of CD14-CD123-CD11chi cells, which were rare and found only at low levels in healthy donors. Like previously described MDSC, these cells were CD11b+, but CD33lo/-HLADR+. In addition, these abnormal myeloid cells were CD34+CD15+CD16+CD66b+CD68+PDL1+ and IL4Rα+. Interestingly they also expressed α smooth muscle actin and collagen I/V on their surface, which are hallmarks of fibrocytes. The fibrocytes expressed high levels of indoleamine oxidase (IDO), but did not express ARG1, ARG2, iNOS2. They suppressed T cell proliferation in response to OKT3, which was partially reversed by the addition of 1MT, an inhibitor ...

This is a Phase I, multi-center, Dose-Escalating, Safety Study of an Intravenously Administered Pegylated Liposomal Mitomycin-C Lipid-based Prodrug (PL-MLP, PROMITIL) in Cancer Patients with Solid Tumors. The study comprised of:. Escalated cohorts A-H: 27 male or female participants, ages 18-80, BMI 18-36 diagnosed with inoperable, recurrent or metastatic malignant solid tumors, deemed incurable, and who have failed to respond to standard therapy or for whom no standard therapy is available. Eligible subjects will be assigned, successively in order of accrual, to one of eight cohorts, to receive escalating doses of intravenously infused PROMITIL. PROMITIL will be administered as an intravenous infusion. Dose escalation will only proceed in the absence of dose-limiting toxicity (DLT). For this purpose, each cohort will only begin its first cycle of PROMITIL when the cohort preceding it has successfully completed its first 4-week cycle without any signs of DLT.. Expanded cohort: 17 adult patients ...
*  Study Helps Resolve Debate About How Tumors Spread
A team of scientists, led by researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, has shown for the first time how cancer cells control the ON/OFF switch of a program used by developing embryos to effectively metastasize in vivo, breaking free and spreading to other parts of the body, where they can proliferate and grow into secondary tumors.. The findings are published in the December 11 issue of the journal Cancer Cell.. In 90 percent of cancer deaths, it is the spreading of cancer, known as metastasis, which ultimately kills the patient by impacting ever-more tissues and functions until the body fails. Ten years ago, a French cancer researcher named Jean Paul Thiery hypothesized that tumor cells metastasized by exploiting a developmental process known as epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition or EMT.. EMT is seen in developing embryos whose cells transform from stationary epithelial cells into more mobile mesenchymal cells, the latter able to migrate to new locations and ...
