Searching for the ‘signature’ causes of BRCAness in breast cancer

Breast cancer cells with defects in the DNA damage repair-genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 have a mutational signature known in cancer genomics as ‘Signature 3.’ But not all breast tumor cells exhibiting Signature 3 have BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations. Therefore, some consider Signature 3 a biomarker for ‘BRCAness,’ a sign of a breakdown in BRCA-related DNA

Blood test can spot tumor-derived DNA in people with early-stage cancers

In a bid to detect cancers early and in a noninvasive way, scientists report they have developed a test that spots tiny amounts of cancer-specific DNA in blood and have used it to accurately identify more than half of 138 people with relatively early-stage colorectal, breast, lung and ovarian cancers. …read more Source:: http://feeds.sciencedaily.com

Cell cycle-blocking drugs can shrink tumors by enlisting immune system in attack on cancer

A new study explains why CDK4/6 inhibitors can shrink tumor in some advanced breast cancers. CDK4/6 inhibitors trigger the immune system to attack tumor cells. CDK4/6 inhibitors can also enhance anti-cancer effect of immunotherapy agents. …read more Source:: http://feeds.sciencedaily.com
