Preserving Endogenous Cardiac Macrophages Following Heart Attack Reduces Scarring and Promotes Healing

Cardiac disease researchers have identified a distinct population of macrophages within the adult heart that after injury promotes cardiac recovery through cardiomyocyte proliferation and angiogenesis.  More...

A Subpopulation of Melanoma Cells Lacks VEGFR and Resists Antiangiogenic Therapy

Melanoma researchers have discovered a subpopulation of cancer cells that generate new blood vessels by expressing the vascular cell adhesion molecule PECAM1, but not VEGFR-2, the major signaling molecule normally associated with new blood vessel formation.  More...

Genomic Researchers Propose Reclassifying Thyroid Cancers into Molecular Subtypes

A recent paper detailed the comprehensive genomic characterization of papillary thyroid carcinoma, the most common type of thyroid cancer, and suggested reclassifying thyroid cancers into molecular subtypes that better reflect their underlying signaling and differentiation properties. More...

Newly Identified Oncogene Links Amino Acids to Colorectal Cancer Development

Cancer researchers have identified a novel oncogene—and possible drug target—that promotes development of colorectal cancer by interacting with amino acids to activate the pro-cancer mTORC1 signaling complex.  More...
