New study links'mastermind' gene to rare cancer-causing tumor
Scientists have discovered a new " mastermind fusion gene " may be associated with a rare cancer-causing tumor -- pheochromocytomas ( " pheo " ) and paragangliomas -- according to a study. This breakthrough discovery could lead to more precise treatment as well as a better understanding of cancer itself. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

In-depth gene search reveals new mutations, drug targets in rare adrenal tumors
(University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine) Casting one of the largest genomic nets to date for the rare tumors of the autonomic nervous system known as pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma (PCC/PGL) captured several new mutations driving the disease that could serve as potential drug targets, researchers from Penn Medicine and other institutions reported this week in Cancer Cell.

Quantification of Metanephrine and Normetanephrine in Urine Using Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry
Measuring urinary metanephrines aides in the diagnosis of pheochromocytomas–catecholamine producing tumors. Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) allows for greater sensitivity and simpler sample preparation as compared with other techniques. Here we describe a simple LC-MS/MS method for measuring metanephrines in urine. Each urine sample was treated with diphenylboronic acid to create boronate complexes, and then applied to a Bond-Elut Plexa cartridge. After solid phase extraction, samples were concentrated and analyzed on an Atlantis T3 column with chromatographic run time totaling 8.5 min. MS/M...

Quantitation of Free Metanephrines in Plasma by Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry
We describe here a liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method to measure free metanephrines in plasma. Free metanephrine and normetanephrine are extracted via solid-phase extraction. After extraction and evaporation, the reconstituted supernatant is analyzed by high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). The MS/MS is set to selective reaction monitoring mode (180.1 → 148.1 m/z for metanephrine, 183.1 → 168.1 for d3-metanephrine, 166.1 → 134.1 m/z for normetanephrine, and 169.1 → 137.2 ...

Adrenal-Sparing Surgery Better for PheochromocytomaAdrenal-Sparing Surgery Better for Pheochromocytoma
Patients with MEN2 and pheochromocytoma who have adrenal-sparing surgery as opposed to adrenalectomy show similar recurrence rates at 10 years of follow-up, but importantly retain adrenal function. Medscape Medical News (Source: Medscape Diabetes Headlines)
