Tea consumption leads to epigenetic changes in women
Epigenetic changes are chemical modifications that turn our genes off or on. In a new study from Uppsala University, researchers show that tea consumption in women leads to epigenetic changes in genes that are known to interact with cancer and estrogen metabolism.

Immunotherapy target suppresses pain to mask cancer

Immunotherapy target suppresses pain to mask cancer
Researchers found that a molecule called PD-L1, which is blocked by the immunotherapy drug nivolumab, acts not only on immune cells but also on the nerve cells that signal pain. That insight could lead to a simple test that measures subtle differences in pain sensitivity to gauge whether or not a cancer patient is responding to immunotherapy. This study also identifies PD-L1 as a previously unrecognized neuromodulator and pain inhibitor.

A new way to slow cancer cell growth

A new way to slow cancer cell growth
Researchers have identified a new way to potentially slow the fast-growing cells that characterize all types of cancer. By removing a specific protein from cells, they were able to slow the cell cycle, which is out of control in cancer. The findings were made in kidney and cervical cancer cells and are a long way from being applied in people, but could be the basis of a treatment option in the future.

The FDA just approved a drug that targets cancer by genetic marker, not body parts
On May 23, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted accelerated approval to pembrolizumab, made by Merck and marketed as Keytruda, for adults and children without remaining treatment alternatives and with metastatic solid tumors identified with a biomarker called microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) or mismatch repair deficient (dMMR).

Cancer Diagnostics with Deep Learning and Photonic Time Stretch
Cancer patients receiving chemotherapy- or immunotherapy-based treatments must undergo regular CT and PET scans—and in some cases, new biopsies—to evaluate the efficacy of the treatment. Flow cytometry, a method for identifying circulating tumor cells (CTCs) via a simple blood test, is much less invasive than scans and biopsies, and could be a game-changer in cancer treatment.
