Link between diabetes, pancreatic cancer found

Link between diabetes, pancreatic cancer found

Researchers from the University of Melbourne have shown that there is an association between pancreatic cancer and diabetes. In a new study published today in Annals of Surgical Oncology , clinicians worked with mathematicians to review data from 1973 to 2013 to conclude there was a time-dependent link between being diagnosed with diabetes and pancreatic cancer. A review of 88 international studies to date, is the largest analysis on the topic published. Continue reading

Gene inactivation drives spread of melanoma

Gene inactivation drives spread of melanoma

ScienceDaily (June 11, 2012) — Why do some cancers spread rapidly to other organs and others don’t metastasize? A team of UNC researchers led by Norman Sharpless, MD, have identified a key genetic switch that determines whether melanoma, a lethal skin cancer, spreads by metastasis. Treating melanoma is extremely challenging Continue reading
