Study Shows Biomarker Panel Boosts Lung Cancer Risk Assessment for Smokers

University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center

A four-protein biomarker blood test improves lung cancer risk assessment over existing guidelines that rely solely upon smoking history, capturing risk for people who have ever smoked, not only for heavy smokers, an international research team reports in JAMA Oncology. “This simple blood test demonstrates the potential of biomarker-based risk assessment to improve eligibility criteria for lung cancer screening with low-dose computed tomography,” said study co-senior author Sam Hanash, M.D., Ph.D., professor of Clinical Cancer Prevention at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Researchers Discover Gene That Controls Bone-to-Fat Ratio in Bone Marrow

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers have found that the PGC-1α gene, previously known to control human metabolism, also controls the equilibrium of bone and fat in bone marrow and also how an adult stem cell expresses its final cell type. The findings could lead to a better understanding of the disruption of bone-to-fat ratio in bone marrow and its health consequences, and point to the gene as a therapeutic target in the treatment of osteoporosis and skeletal aging.

Guardian of the Cell

Harvard Medical School

Scientists have defined the structure and key features of a human immune-surveillance protein that guards against cancer and bacterial and viral infections The identification of two human-specific variations in the protein closes a critical knowledge gap in immunology and cancer biology The variations explain why the human protein is more precise and more selective than mammalian forms of the protein and why it targets certain types of DNA but ignores others The findings can inform the design of more precisely targeted immune therapies against cancer and a range of immune-mediated diseases

Researchers Turn Exercise Into a Game and See Encouraging Results

University of Iowa

A team of University of Iowa researchers built a web-based app called MapTrek. When synced with a Fitbit, MapTrek allows users to go on virtual walking tours of locations such as the Grand Canyon or Appalachian trail while competing against other users. A study showed MapTrek and Fitbit users averaged 2,200 more steps per day than a control group that used only Fitbits.

Dermatologists, Skin Cancer Survivors Tell “Skin Cancer, Take a Hike!”

American Academy of Dermatology

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, affecting one in five Americans in their lifetime. To help raise awareness of skin cancer prevention and detection, 12 dermatologists, skin cancer survivors, and their family and friends will tell “Skin Cancer, Take a Hike!” during a four-day trek through remote Alaska. Starting Sunday, July 15, the hikers will trek more than 20 miles along Alaska’s Denali and Foraker mountains to raise funds for the American Academy of Dermatology’s SPOT Skin Cancer™ campaign. Proceeds raised through Skin Cancer, Take a Hike!™ will support community outreach programs and services, including free skin cancer screenings, shade structures where children learn and play, and sunscreen dispensers in public pools and parks.
