UNC scientists recommend rethinking brain MRI for early-stage lung cancer patients
by maryruth.helms published Oct 10, 2011 last modified Oct 10, 2011 02:02 PM — filed under: , ,
UNC scientists report that in early stage, asymptomatic non-small cell lung cancer, early brain recurrences are potentially detectable prior to surgery and recommend that physicians consider including a routine pre-operative staging brain MRI. In addition, patients whose tumors are determined to be higher risk based on the findings at surgery, should consider post-operative MRI to offer early treatment of unrecognized metastasis.

UNC study highlights diagnosis of lung cancer subtypes
by maryruth.helms published May 17, 2012 last modified May 17, 2012 09:24 AM — filed under: , ,
In the processes of treating most cancers, one of the key pieces of information is the appearance of the tumor under the microscope using a technique called light microscopy. In lung cancer, for example, the appearance of the tumor determines both which chemotherapies are safe and which chemotherapies are effective. In addition, tumor appearance also suggests which patients should be tested for mutations that can be targeted by some of the most effective and safest drugs on the market.

UNC study shows potential for nanotechnology-based therapy for ovarian cancer
by maryruth.helms published Aug 30, 2011 last modified Aug 30, 2011 10:01 AM — filed under: , , ,
Chapel Hill - A UNC-led study has shown the potential for nanotechnology therapy for ovarian cancer. Scientists at UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and Duke University Medical Center conducted a preclinical study using nanoparticle technology to deliver doses of chemo- and radiotherapy that specifically targeted metastasized ovarian cancer cells, eradicating the cancer and lessening the toxicities often associated with the treatment.

UNC surgeon trains future surgeons in Malawi: The Malawi Surgical Initiative
by maryruth.helms published Oct 05, 2011 last modified Oct 12, 2011 12:00 PM — filed under: ,
Carol Shores, MD, PhD, FACS, has been interested in the link between viruses and cancer for over 20 years, after working on virus- associated cancers as a pre-doctoral fellow in the UNC Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics. Oropharyngeal cancers, like cervical cancer, are associated with human papilloma viruses and endemic Burkitt lymphoma, a childhood cancer in sub-Saharan Africa, is associated with Epstein-Barr virus.
