Gold nanoparticles help target, quantify breast cancer segments in a living cell

Source: Science Daily

Dow Falls As Technology Sector Stocks Tumble
A way to detect and measure cancer levels in a living cell by using tiny gold particles with tails of synthetic DNA has been developed by scientists. The process uses gold nanoparticles to target and bind to fragments of genetic material known as BRCA1 messenger RNA splice variants, which can indicate the presence and stage of breast cancer. The number of these mRNA splice variants in a cell can be determined by exam ...

Premiere Of Lionsgate's "What To Expect When You're Expecting" - After Party
By Rachael Rettner, Senior Writer Published: 04/23/2014 09:19 AM EDT on LiveScience Women with mutations in the BRCA1 gene are at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer, and there are currently no drugs proven to reduce their cancer risk. Now, early research suggests that existing drugs, already approved to treat other conditions, may help prevent breast cancer in these women, although more research is ...

Scientists reveal potential link between brain development and breast cancer gene

Source: EurekaAlert

Scientists at the Salk Institute have uncovered details into a surprising -- and crucial -- link between brain development and a gene whose mutation is tied to breast and ovarian cancer. Aside from better understanding neurological damage associated in a small percentage of people susceptible to breast cancers, the new work also helps to better understand the evolution of ...

Twenty Years Later: How Breast Cancer Risk Genes are Changing Patient Care

Source: Science Daily

In the mid-1990s, scientists for the first time were able to isolate and clone the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, mutations in which were thought to increase susceptibility to early onset breast and ovarian cancers. A article takes a look back at the last twenty years to show how the identification of these genes set in motion a firestorm of research aimed at exploring how genetic information can be used to create both standards of care and strategies for all patients at a high-risk of developing cance ...
