The genetic risk score for long telomere length was associated with increased risk of lung adenocarcinoma, but not squamous cell lung cancer, prostate, breast, ovarian, or colorectal cancers.
At Dartmouth’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC), investigators have teamed up with oncologists to make genetic profiling of tumors clinically actionable.
Known for their role in tumor cell systems, monocytic myeloid-derived suppressor cells hold significance in suppression of immune responses during infectious diseases.
Under Sunny Skies, Prouty Raises More Than $3.1 Million
July 11th, 2015
With the day feeling like a million dollars, more than 5,000 participants and some 1,300 volunteers teamed up to triple the feeling by raising more than $3.1 million for cancer care and research.
Investigators from Norris Cotton Cancer Center demonstrated that a dual breast exam using MRI and Near Infrared Spectral Tomography (NIRST) is feasible and more accurate than MRI alone.
Investigators harnessed genomic data to discover that the previously identified E2F4 signature in breast cancer can be utilized to predict prognosis and response to therapy in bladder cancer.
In a mouse model of melanoma, investigators from Norris Cotton Cancer Center found that chemo-attractive signals that direct immune cells into tumors are actively suppressed by the cancer.
Dartmouth researchers develop new method to provide a deeper understanding of the genetic component of cancer.
Mohs Surgery Decisions Should Include Patients' Preferences
June 12th, 2015
Dartmouth investigators' research demonstrates that a fraction of the transected squamous cell carcinomas in situ referred for Mohs surgeries have an invasive component.
Integrating Genomic Data to Make Inferences in Breast Cancer
June 12th, 2015
Harnessing Dartmouth’s Discovery supercomputer and high-throughput genomic data, investigators found non-random tendencies for transcription factors to be involved in several types of cancer.
