NCCN publishes new easy-to-understand patient education resources focused on brain cancer

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network has published the NCCN Guidelines for Patients and NCCN Quick Guide sheets for Brain Cancer - Gliomas—the first in a series of patient education resources focused on Brain Cancer. [More]
Study shows promising results for treating lymphoma patients with immune cell therapy

Study shows promising results for treating lymphoma patients with immune cell therapy

Lymphoma is the most common blood cancer. The disease occurs when immune cells called lymphocytes multiply uncontrollably. Cancerous lymphocytes can travel throughout the body and form lymph node tumors. [More]
Cancers acquire resistance to immunotherapy by eliminating tumor-specific genetic mutations

Cancers acquire resistance to immunotherapy by eliminating tumor-specific genetic mutations

Results of an initial study of tumors from patients with lung cancer or head and neck cancer suggest that the widespread acquired resistance to immunotherapy drugs known as checkpoint inhibitors may be due to the elimination of certain genetic mutations needed to enable the immune system to recognize and attack malignant cells.

UNMC seeking patients with lymphoma to evaluate two-drug oral therapy

UNMC seeking patients with lymphoma to evaluate two-drug oral therapy

The University of Nebraska Medical Center is seeking 24 patients to enroll in a Phase 2a study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of two oral cancer drugs for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma who have relapsed or are resistant to other traditional therapies. [More]
Dual therapy safe and effective in patients with recurrent Hodgkin lymphoma

Dual therapy safe and effective in patients with recurrent Hodgkin lymphoma

The combination of two new drugs that harness the body's immune system is safe and effective, destroying most cancer cells in 64 percent of patients with recurrent Hodgkin lymphoma, according to the results of an early-phase study. [More]
New report estimates global burden of cancer cases and deaths in 2015

New report estimates global burden of cancer cases and deaths in 2015

In 2015, there were an estimated 17.5 million cancer cases around the globe and 8.7 million deaths, according to a new report from the Global Burden of Disease Cancer Collaboration published online by JAMA Oncology. [More]
Study finds lack of improvement in health status of childhood cancer survivors

Study finds lack of improvement in health status of childhood cancer survivors

Long-term survivors of childhood cancer live longer thanks to improvements to cancer treatments, but a new study looking at three decades of therapy suggests patients do not report better health status. [More]
Cancers that cause huge impact on healthy years of life linked to smoking and alcohol

Cancers that cause huge impact on healthy years of life linked to smoking and alcohol

A new study finds eleven of the 15 cancers with the most impact on healthy years of life lost in the United States are closely-associated with two preventable risk factors: smoking and alcohol. [More]
NCCN publishes new resources to help patients understand treatment options for stomach cancer

NCCN publishes new resources to help patients understand treatment options for stomach cancer

This year, it is estimated that more than 26,000 people will be diagnosed with Stomach Cancer in the United States, with nearly one million new cases diagnosed worldwide each year. [More]
Study suggests targeting UNG enzyme may help treat non-Hodgkin's lymphoma

Study suggests targeting UNG enzyme may help treat non-Hodgkin's lymphoma

Researchers have discovered that an enzyme called uracil-DNA glycosylase (UNG) protects the ends of B cell chromosomes to facilitate the proliferation of these antibody-producing cells in response to infection. [More]
Right dose of CAR T cells and lymphodepletion can achieve good response rates for NHL patients

Right dose of CAR T cells and lymphodepletion can achieve good response rates for NHL patients

In a paper published today in Science Translational Medicine, researchers from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center shared data from an early-phase study of patients with advanced non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) who received JCAR014, a Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T cell treatment, and chemotherapy. [More]
Blood cancer is associated with considerably higher healthcare costs than other cancers

Blood cancer is associated with considerably higher healthcare costs than other cancers

Health economics studies, published today in The Lancet Haematology, report that the cost of treating blood cancers is twice that for treating other cancers. This is largely because they require more complex treatment regimens that necessitate longer hospital stays. [More]
Study reports BV therapy may be curative in some Hodgkin lymphoma patients

Study reports BV therapy may be curative in some Hodgkin lymphoma patients

Five-year survival data published online today in Blood, the Journal of the American Society of Hematology, suggest that the targeted therapy brentuximab vedotin may have cured some Hodgkin lymphoma patients whose disease has persisted despite receiving previous therapies. [More]
Everolimus combined with standard R-CHOP therapy shows promise in treating DLBCL patients

Everolimus combined with standard R-CHOP therapy shows promise in treating DLBCL patients

The targeted therapy everolimus may be safely combined with R-CHOP for new, untreated diffuse large B-cell lymphoma according to the results of a pilot study by Mayo Clinic researchers published in the Lancet Haematology. [More]
Autologous stem cell transplant safe, effective for HIV-associated lymphoma patients

Autologous stem cell transplant safe, effective for HIV-associated lymphoma patients

New research published online today in Blood Journal of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), challenges the generally held belief that individuals with HIV and aggressive lymphoma are not candidates for standard treatment. [More]
NCCN educational resources provide insight for patients with Mycosis Fungoides

Researchers find link between obesity and disease relapse in pediatric Hodgkin lymphoma patients

Researchers find link between obesity and disease relapse in pediatric Hodgkin lymphoma patients

Obesity has been identified as an adverse risk factor for survival in many adult and childhood cancers, but not in pediatric Hodgkin lymphoma, the most common cancer in adolescents. [More]
Nivolumab drug shows better response rate in metastatic bladder cancer patients

Nivolumab drug shows better response rate in metastatic bladder cancer patients

The immune checkpoint blockade drug nivolumab reduced tumor burden in 24.4 percent of patients with metastatic bladder cancer, regardless of whether their tumors had a biomarker related to the drug's target, according to clinical trial results from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. [More]
Initiatives to improve adolescent, young adult cancer outcomes justified

Initiatives to improve adolescent, young adult cancer outcomes justified

Analysis of the EUROCARE-5 data shows that although survival for adolescents and young adults with cancer has improved overall, the survival rates for certain malignancies still lag behind those for children. [More]
