An IHC assay for ALK status in non-small cell lung cancer tumor tissue predicts crizotinib treatment outcomes and offers a rapid and potentially less expensive alternative to older FISH ALK status assays.

Antibiotics administered less than a month before initiation of immunotherapies for patients with advanced kidney cancer might impair tumor control, according to a retrospective analysis.

Despite significant toxicities, idelalisib improved time to progression for patients with treatment-resistant chronic lymphoblastic leukemia.

Combined miniCHOP and treatment with the fully-human anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody ofatumumab is associated with improved overall survival among elderly patients diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

Stem cells that give rise to acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) express higher levels of the CD99 cell surface protein-sugar molecule than normal stem cells.

Many childhood brain tumors harbor potentially targetable gene mutations, according to a prospective single-institution study of more than 200 tumor samples, researchers reported in the journal Neuro-Oncology.

Dietary fat intake might promote the growth of melanoma tumors harboring BRAF V600E mutations, and lipid-lowering drugs can slow that growth, according to a mouse study.

Among active or former smokers undergoing lung cancer screening, longer peripheral leukocyte telomere length is associated with an increased risk of lung cancer.

Non-small cell lung cancer can acquire resistance to immune checkpoint blockade agents through evolutionary culling of tumor clones harboring the mutations for cell surface neoantigens that are recognized by patients’ immune T cells.
