Immunotherapy for lung and other cancers may also be beneficial for rare skin cancer
(UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center) New research from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center found immunotherapies effective against lung cancer and melanoma may work against cutaneous angiosarcoma, a rare, highly aggressive skin tumor found primarily on the scalps of older White people. The researchers report tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes and the surface protein markers PD-1 and PD-L1 could help guide the choice of immunotherapy to fight cutaneous angiosarcomas.

Patient-partnered research finds clues about a rare cancer's genetic roots
(Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard) Working in close partnership with patients, scientists have identified new causes of a rare cancer of blood vessel walls called angiosarcoma. The research also points to possible therapeutic options for patients with this aggressive disease, who often have a poor prognosis. The study is a result of the Angiosarcoma Project, a unique partnership between patients and scientists that empowers patients to contribute their medical records, biological samples, and voices to accelerate research.
