A protein known as arginine methyltransferase 1 (PRMT1) may be a potential therapeutic target for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), the most common type of pancreatic cancer, and one of the most deadliest with a less than 10 percent, five-year survival rate. PRMT1 is involved in a number of genetic processes including gene transcription, DNA repair and signaling.

I've just learned that Jonathan Weisgal , the former CAA agent who was a titan in the early days of the rise of the indie film business, passed away Sunday in Los Angeles at age 55. Weisgal, who died after a two and one-half year fight against pancreatic cancer, was buried in New Jersey. Many of his Hollywood colleagues saluted him today at a memorial held at The Mark in Los Angeles, where many testimonials were read from industry colleagues who benefited from Weisgal's...

That prompts the pained question, Why me? In a previous study, Tomasetti and Vogelstein reported that DNA copying errors could explain why certain cancers in the United States, such as those of the colon, occur more than others, such as brain cancer. In the new research, they addressed a different question: What fraction of mutations in cancer are due to these DNA copying errors? The scientists took a close look at the mutations that drive abnormal cell growth among 32 cancer types. They developed their new model using DNA sequencing data from the Cancer Genome Atlas and epidemiologic data from the Cancer Research UK database. It generally takes two or more critical gene mutations for cancer to start. Tomasetti and Vogelstein used their model to show, for example, that when critical mutations in pancreatic cancers are added together, 77 percent are due to random DNA copying errors, 18 percent to environmental factors, such as smoking, and 5 percent to heredity.

Scientists are hoping to develop a new treatment for pancreatic cancer from people who have an inbuilt immunity to the disease. Researchers want to identify humans who have the same resistance to cancer observed in a so-called 'supermouse' that mutated in a laboratory. White blood cells from the people would then be used to develop a potential cure for the particularly deadly form of cancer. A 350 foot image of Dame Vera Lynn's face will be projected onto the white cliffs of Dover today to mark her 100th birthday.

No one really has known the origin of this disease, Teixeira says. But we now have early clues that this remnant tissue in the mice becomes part of the tissue that would go on to develop an enlarged prostate. Prostate trouble? Go to the dentist Teixeira and his team also found that a malfunctioning tumor-suppressing gene that's associated with certain cancers, such as colon and pancreatic, known as Stk11, additionally influenced the development of BPH. By altering the Stk11 gene, the number of cells in this embryonic tissue multiplied above what is needed and caused the prostate tissue surrounding the urethra to grow, Teixeira says. This overgrowth of tissue is what he indicated could cause the lower urinary tract symptoms, such as difficulty urinating, in older men with the disease. Most drugs or procedures on the market today just treat the symptoms, not the disease itself, Teixeira says.

PANCREATIC cancer death rates are rising - and only one in every 100 patients in England and Wales survive their disease for more than ten years. Experts warn this could be because symptoms of the disease are hard to spot - and can even be mistaken for the common health condition heartburn.
