Advanced viral gene therapy eradicates prostate cancer in preclinical experiments
(Virginia Commonwealth University) Even with the best available treatments, the median survival of patients with metastatic, hormone-refractory prostate cancer is only two to three years. Driven by the need for more effective therapies for these patients, researchers at VCU Massey Cancer Center and the VCU Institute of Molecular Medicine have developed a unique approach that uses microscopic gas bubbles to deliver directly to the cancer a viral gene therapy in combination with an experimental drug that targets a specific gene driving the cancer's growth.

Hormone therapy for endometrial cancer targets connective tissue, not tumor cells
In this study, we found that all of the progesterone anti-tumor effects are in fact mediated through the stroma, even though it makes up a minor fraction of the tumor. I believe these exciting findings are going to surprise the clinical community and change the way people look at patterns of hormone-receptor expression in endometrial tumors." The results of the three-year study, done using a specially developed laboratory model created by Memarzadeh's team that closely mimics human endometrial cancer, appear in the early online edition of Cancer Research, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Association for ...

Phase III study of 2-weekly versus 3-weekly docetaxel for castration-resistant advanced prostate cancer
Source: Lancet Oncology Area: News According to the results of a Phase III study published early online in The Lancet Oncology, a 2-weekly docetaxel regimen was well tolerated and improved time to treatment failure compared with the standard 3-weekly regimen in men with hormone-refractory prostate cancer. The authors note that androgen deprivation is a standard treatment for advanced prostate cancer; it is not however curative and most patients develop castration-resistant disease within a median of 2 years. Several treatment options are available for patients with hormone-refractory prostate cancer, including ...
