Skin cancers linked with reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease

Previous studies have demonstrated a decreased risk of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in individuals with various cancers, including non-melanoma skin cancers (including squamous cell cancers and basal cell cancers). A new Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology & Venereology study finds that this inverse relationship also holds true for malignant melanoma. The study included patients […]

Cancer: Tumor transition states

Researchers at the Universit√© libre de Bruxelles, ULB define for the first time the tumor transition states occurring during cancer progression and identify the tumor cell populations responsible for metastasis. Tumor heterogeneity describes the differences between different cells within a given tumor. These differences have major implications for the diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy of cancer […]
