Breast Tumor Stiffness and Metastasis Risk Linked by Molecule’s Movement

April 20, 2015

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center have discovered a molecular mechanism that connects breast tissue stiffness to tumor metastasis and poor prognosis. The study may inspire new approaches to predicting patient outcomes and halting tumor metastasis.

Study Helps Resolve Debate About How Tumors Spread

November 29, 2012

…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.

Nanoparticle Vaccine Could Curb Cancer Metastasis to Lungs by Targeting a Protein

October 18, 2023

UC San Diego engineers have developed an experimental vaccine that could prevent the spread of metastatic cancers to the lungs. Its success lies in targeting a protein known to play a central role in cancer growth and spread, rather than targeting the primary tumor itself.

Active Surveillance Safe for African Americans with Low-Risk Prostate Cancer

November 3, 2020

Researchers with UC San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center say active surveillance is safe for African American men with low-risk prostate cancer.

Developmental Protein Plays Role in Spread of Cancer

June 14, 2013

…development, and recently found in many different types of cancer, apparently serves as a switch regulating the spread of cancer, known as metastasis, report researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center in the June 15, 2013 issue of the…

Tumor-Activated Protein Promotes Cancer Spread

May 13, 2013

…Diego School of Medicine and UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center report that cancers physically alter cells in the lymphatic system – a network of vessels that transports and stores immune cells throughout the body – to promote the spread of disease, a process called metastasis.

Programming probiotics for early detection of liver cancer

June 1, 2015

…method for detecting liver cancer metastases in mice. The approach uses over-the-counter probiotics genetically programmed to produce signals easily detectable in urine when liver cancer metastases are present. The results of the new study, published in the May 27 issue of Science Translational Medicine, indicate that genetically-programmed probiotics may be…

Enzyme Controlling Metastasis of Breast Cancer Identified

September 2, 2014

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have identified an enzyme that controls the spread of breast cancer. The findings, reported in the current issue of PNAS, offer hope for the leading cause of breast cancer mortality worldwide.

Harnessing Cancer’s Methylation Footprint for More Precise Diagnosis and Prognosis

June 27, 2017

…Medicine, with colleagues in Xijing Hospital and Sun Yat-sen Cancer Center in China, report that DNA methylation can provide effective markers for at least four major cancers, not only correctly differentiating malignant tissues from normal, but also providing information on prognosis and survival.

How a Plant Virus Could Protect and Save Your Lungs From Metastatic Cancer

September 14, 2021

Using a virus that grows in black-eyed pea plants, researchers developed a new therapy that could keep metastatic cancers from spreading to the lungs, as well as treat established tumors in the lungs.
