Cancer patient out-of-pocket costs play major role in treatment adherence
by William Shawn Davis (wishda) published Jan 09, 2014 — filed under:
The cost of insurance co-payments for cutting-edge pharmaceuticals can vary widely from patient to patient. When the patient’s share of prescription costs becomes too high, many patients skip doses or stop taking medication entirely, according to research conducted at the University of North Carolina.

Understanding multiple causes of racial disparities in breast cancer is essential
by William Shawn Davis published Sep 05, 2013 last modified Sep 18, 2013 09:49 AM — filed under:
Racial disparities in the treatment and outcome of breast cancer patients arise from a combination of biological, social and financial causes. Understanding how these complex factors influence interactions between patients and the medical community is key to reducing the gaps in treatment and mortality between racial groups, according to researchers at the University of North Carolina.

NIH and UNC Researchers Define Role of Protein Vinculin in Cell Movement
by William Shawn Davis (wishda) published Aug 14, 2013 last modified Aug 14, 2013 09:53 AM — filed under:
Researchers at the University of North Carolina and the National Institutes for Health have defined the role of the protein vinculin in enabling cell movement. In a paper published in the Journal of Cell Biology, Sharon Campbell, PhD, professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics and member of UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Clare Waterman of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute at the National Institutes of Health showed that cell mobility occurs through the interactions between the protein vinculin and the cytoskeletal lattice formed by the protein actin. By physically binding to the actin that makes up the cytoskeleton, vinculin operates as a form of molecular clutch transferring force and controlling cell motion.
