Analysis of cancer incidence data in England reveals that risk of breast and gynaecological cancers varies by ethnic group but groups typically grouped together are not homogenous with regards to their cancer risk.
Benjamin Jackson and colleagues review our current understanding of the functional consequences of microRNA dysregulation in the development of prostate cancer, and the identification of potential microRNA targets as serum biomarkers.
The overexpression in breast cancer cells of Amyloid-beta precursor protein (APP), involved in Alzheimer’s disease, is linked to tumorigenicity and invasion, and APP may serve as a target for breast cancer therapy.
Administration of bevacizumab plus chemotherapy in medically fit elderly German patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) proves effective in measures of progression-free status and overall survival in a large community-based observational cohort study.
A compound that reversibly inhibits lysine specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) causes global changes in histone methylation and displays anti-tumor effects on poorly differentiated endometrial carcinoma cell lines and in an orthotopic xenograft mouse model.
Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) delivered by adenoviral vectors inhibits cell growth and induces the mitochondrial pathway of apoptosis in gastric cancer cells, represses tumor growth in mouse xenografts, and is also effective against gastric cancer stem cells.
The three-sigma statistical threshold criteria method proves better than the 1.5-to-1 ratiometric threshold criteria method for determination of gamma detection probe positivity for in situ detection of abnormal tissue sites during radioguided oncologic surgery.
Despite the access to care programs recently implemented in Mexico, barriers to appropriate medical care still exist and affect breast cancer outcomes, contributing to the high breast cancer mortality rate in this country.

BMC Cancer is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of cancer research, including the pathophysiology, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancers. The journal welcomes submissions concerning molecular and cellular biology, genetics, epidemiology, and clinical trials.
BMC Cancer is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.
BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.
