Blood tests could detect breast cancer years before

The Telegraph  reported that scientists funded by the Cancer Research Campaign have found that a simple blood test could help identify women most at risk from breast cancer.  

Researchers discovered a strong association between risk of the disease and a molecular change in a particular white blood cell gene. They also looked for a chemical effect called methylation, which is known to act as a “gene switch”.  Women showing the highest methylation levels affecting the ATM gene were twice as likely to develop breast cancer compared with those with the lowest levels.

The test could help doctors to identify women at high risk of the disease years in advance allowing them to take preventive medicines and switch to healthier lifestyles.

Baroness Delyth Morgan, chief executive of Breast Cancer Campaign, said: “this research is so exciting because it suggests that there is every possibility the risk of developing breast cancer could be decided many decades in advance…..By piecing together how this happens, we can look at ways of preventing the disease and detecting it earlier to give people the best possible chance of survival.”

Discovery of new treatment for pancreatic cancer

As reported by the BBC, Cancer Research funded scientists have identified a previously unknown faulty gene that appears to play a key role in some aggressive forms of pancreatic cancer.

A study published in the journal Nature, showed that a gene was being switched off in the cancerous cells. Scientists from Cancer Research UK’s Cambridge Research Institute and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute said drugs were already being tested which had the potential to turn the gene back on, to stop the spread of the cancer.

Currently around 8000 people in the UK are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer every year and fewer than one in five patients survive their disease for a year or more

Dr Julie Sharp, Cancer Research UK’s senior science information manager, said: “These results raise the possibility that a class of promising new cancer drugs may be effective at treating some pancreatic cancers.”
