The cW Agenda: Fall 2022
Fall agenda
All the news you need to know.

7.

Fascin-ating: A study published in eLife has shown that a protein called fascin acts in the control center of cancer cells and influences their ability to repair themselves, grow and move. Conducting more research into how fascin works may help scientists learn how to block its action when it comes to cancer.

8.

Mouthing Off: New Project Grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) are set to help develop research in what role bacteria play in mouth sores caused by chemotherapy by mimicking bacteria combinations found in children’s mouths with cancer. This will help researchers understand how microbes interact with oral cells during chemotherapy to identify bacteria that may offer protection.

9.

To the Screen: The National Cancer Institute is awarding $23 million to four academic institutions to establish centers that will conduct research on the role of telehealth in delivering cancer-related healthcare. The research will study the role of telehealth in fields ranging from prevention to screening; diagnosis to treatment; and survivorship.

6.

Go Green: Research at Nippon Medical School shows how nature and rural areas benefit your health more than urban areas. Researchers observed that walking in areas with more greenery reduces stress and blood pressure far more effectively than walks in urban settings. Plants can boost our immune systems and raise our number of natural killer cells, which seek out and destroy tumor cells.

Oiled Up: According to an analysis published in PloS One, components of olive oil offer protection against several types of cancer. The study found significant disparities in cancer risks between people who consumed olive oils and people who did not. Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, squalene and phenolic compounds.

Live(r) and Learn: Investigators at Cedars-Sinai Cancer have created a blood test that uses the same polymerase chain reaction technology, made commonly available during the COVID-19 pandemic, to detect the most common form of liver cancer at an early enough stage that cure is possible.

Thymus-n’t Stop Now: There may be news on the horizon for thymic cancer. Weill Cornell Medicine is developing a new preclinical model that revealed how a common mutation found in thymic epithelial tumors spark their formation. The model may be able to speed the development of targeted therapies for cancer of the thymus gland.
