[16/02/2012] Scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have identified a subtype of ovarian cancer able to build its own blood vessels, suggesting that such tumours might be especially susceptible to "anti-angiogenic" drugs that block blood vessel formation.Ovarian Cancer: Vulnerable to Anti-Angiogenic Drugs - Read more

Uncovering: How Ovarian Cancer Resists Chemotherapy

[04/03/2011] Researchers in the university's Faculty of Science & Engineering studied a tiny strand of our genetic makeup known as a MicroRNA, involved in the regulation of gene expression. Cancer occurs when gene regulation goes haywire. Uncovering: How Ovarian Cancer Resists Chemotherapy - Read more

[23/11/2010] Researchers at King's College London's Department of Twin Research have discovered, as part of a large international consortium, 30 new genes that control the age of sexual maturation in women. Scientists Discover: Genes Linking Puberty Timing to Body Fat in Women - Read more

Menopause: New Test Predicts the Age

[30/06/2010] Researchers have developed a way of accurately predicting when women will hit the menopause using a simple blood test. The average difference between the predicted age and the actual age that the women in their study reached the menopause was only a third of a year, and the maximum margin of error was between three and four years.Menopause: New Test Predicts the Age - Read more

Ovarian Cancer: Symptoms of Little Value for Early Detection

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[29/01/2010] Use of symptoms to trigger a medical evaluation for ovarian cancer does not appear to detect early-stage ovarian cancer earlier and would likely result in diagnosis in only one out of 100 women, according to a new article.Ovarian Cancer: Symptoms of Little Value for Early Detection - Read more

Uterine Cancer: Molecular Imaging Holds Promise for Early Intervention

[24/08/2009] A quick and accurate test for endometriosis that does not require surgery has been developed by researchers from Australia, Jordan and Belgium, according to new research.Noninvasive: A Quick Way of Diagnosing Endometriosis - Read more

Ovaries: Screening Not Catching Early Cancer

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[02/04/2009] Screening regimens that combine ultrasound and a blood test for ovarian cancer fail to detect the disease early enough to make important progress, a new study reports. The combo screening also led to unnecessary surgery. Ovaries: Screening Not Catching Early Cancer - Read more

Breast Cancer Prevention and Risk Groups: In the End a Matter of Feeling

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/09/2008] Each country has its special customs - this sometimes also applies to medicine. International data concerned with high genetic breast cancer risk show that more Dutch women opt for a preventive removal of both breasts than German women. The reason: It is still not clear how to best prevent breast cancer in high risk groups.Breast Cancer Prevention and Risk Groups: In the End a Matter of Feeling - Read more

Drugs: Marijuana May Get in the Way of the Baby

[01/10/2006] Marijuana use at the time of conception and early in pregnancy prevents embryos' safe passage from the ovary to the uterus, resulting in early pregnancy failure, suggests a new study in mice. Drugs: Marijuana May Get in the Way of the Baby - Read more
