Cancer-associated Mutations are Common in Patients with Unexplained Low Blood Counts

November 3, 2015

…do not fit the diagnostic criteria for recognized blood cancers should be described as having clonal cytopenias of undetermined significance, suggest UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers in a recent paper. The researchers found the condition surprisingly common in older patients with low blood counts.

A Potential New Target for Head and Neck Cancer Immunotherapy

March 13, 2023

UC San Diego researchers have identified a strong association between the product of a gene expressed in most cancers and elevated levels of white blood cells that produce antibodies within tumors, suggesting a new therapeutic target.

Embryonic Development Protein Active in Cancer Growth

March 5, 2012

A team of scientists at the University of California, San Diego Moores Cancer Center has identified a novel protein expressed by breast cancer cells – but not normal adult tissues – that could provide a new target for future anti-cancer drugs and treatments.

For Good and Ill, Immune Response to Cancer Cuts Both Ways

April 7, 2014

…immune response that kills cancer cells and one that conversely stimulates tumor growth can be as narrow as a “double-edged sword,” report researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine in the April 7, 2014 online issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

New Prostate Biopsy Procedure Reduces Risk, Improves Accuracy

UC San Diego Researchers Help Discover That Tiny DNA Circles are Key Drivers of Cancer

April 12, 2023

University of California San Diego computer scientists are among the lead authors of an international study that finds tiny circles of DNA that defy the accepted laws of genetics are key drivers of cancer formation.

New Imaging Agent Enables Better Cancer Detection, More Accurate Staging

March 20, 2013

…dye, designed and developed at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, is an effective agent in detecting and mapping cancers that have reached the lymph nodes. The radioactive dye called Technetium Tc-99m tilmanocept, successfully identified cancerous lymph nodes and did a better job of marking cancers than the current standard…

Extrachromosomal DNA is common in human cancer and drives poor patient outcomes

August 17, 2020

The multiplication of genes located in extrachromosomal DNA that have the potential to cause cancer drives poor patient outcomes across many cancer types, according to a Nature Genetics study published Aug. 17, 2020 by a team of researchers including the University of California San Diego.

Sugar Molecule Links Red Meat Consumption and Elevated Cancer Risk in Mice

December 29, 2014

…are known to be at higher risk for certain cancers, other carnivores are not, prompting researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine to investigate the possible tumor-forming role of a sugar called Neu5Gc, which is naturally found in most mammals but not in humans.

Researchers to Test Novel Drug Combination Against Toughest Breast Cancers

August 27, 2018

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine have launched a phase Ib clinical trial to assess the safety and tolerability of cirmtuzumab, in combination with standard chemotherapy, to treat metastatic or locally advanced breast cancer that cannot be surgically removed.
