Tips and tools to help you better understand cancer risk, scientific research and clinical studies
The PROMISE study aims to identify people with conditions that are precursors of multiple myeloma and track their health over time.
A French study has found that people who regularly consume sugary drinks, like soda and fruit juice, may be more likely to develop cancer.
Men who ate yogurt at least twice a week were 26% less likely to have polyps with the potential to become malignant.
Frequent use of indoor tanning services is carcinogenic and addictive at a genetic level.
Given the long timeline needed for human studies, people today should not expect this technology to be proven and fully approved for years.
“Our goal is to make cancer survivors feel like they’re part of a team,” says study author Heather Leach, PhD.
Overall, the therapy worked very well in the mice used in the study. The first human clinical trial will be in adult brain cancers.
Researchers propose using a less-than-one-in-a-million level—or the absence of minimal residual disease—to measure drugs’ effectiveness.

Patients and providers must have the evidence that they need and deserve to inform effective medical care.
Turns out mutations in the TP53 gene are focused on so-called “hot spots” because specific carcinogens target those spots.
Cancer geneticists, epidemiologists and oncologists team up to use mutation rate to predict individual cancer risk.
