In cancer treatment, new DNA tools
The New York Times
Cancers were once named strictly for the tissue where they originated in the breast, prostate or other part of the body. Now, in the age of genetically informed medicine, cancers may also come with a more specific lexicon: the names of mutated genes deep within tumors that cause cells to become cancerous.

Nurses leading the way: Promoting adherence to oral cancer medications
OncLive
Patients with cancer miss as much as one-third of the prescribed doses of oral anticancer agents required for treatment of their disease. Even more disconcerting is that within the next three years, 25 percent of cancer treatment will be delivered in pill form. This shift in the treatment paradigm will result in increased care in the home, placing greater responsibility on patients. Oncology nurses must take the lead in structuring care settings that promote patient behavior to attain optimal adherence.

HealthDay News

The study suggests that antipsychotic drugs activate a wide range of genes, changing their function. The findings could help point the way to new gene-targeted and stem cell therapies and provide valuable insight into what causes manic-depressive mood swings.
