Maternal diets rich in Omega-3 fatty acids may protect offspring from breast cancer
(Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine) In a new study recently published by Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology, Marshall University researchers noted a significant difference in mice from mothers that were fed a diet rich in canola oil, compared with mothers fed a diet rich in corn oil. A maternal Omega 3-rich diet affected genome-wide epigenetic landscape changes in offspring and potentially modulated gene expression patterns. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

New approach todrug design yields highly promising bladder cancer drug candidate
(Trinity College Dublin) A new approach to molecular drug design has yielded a highly promising bladder cancer drug, which induced rapid shedding of tumour cells and resulted in a significant reduction in tumour size when used in clinical trials. These potent effects were seen in patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) and the treatment was shown to be safe, as no drug-related side effects were observed.

(German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ)) Blood stem cells make brain tumors more aggressiveFor the first time, scientists from the German Cancer Consortium (DKTK) partner site in Essen/D ü sseldorf have discovered stem cells of the hematopoietic system in glioblastomas, the most aggressive form of brain tumor. These hematopoietic stem cells promote division of the cancer cells and at the same time suppress the immune response against the tumor. This surprising discovery might open up new possibilities for developing more effective immunotherapies against these malignant brain tumors. (S...
