- A study led by researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Broad
Institute of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard
University provides the first demonstration of a practical method of
screening tumors for cancer-related gene abnormalities that might be
treated with "targeted" drugs.

- A study documents the connection between increased levels of epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EET) lipids and cancer growth and metastasis opening the door to a new avenue for cancer treatment.
- Dana-Farber scientists have safely shut down breast cancer and a form of leukemia in mice by targeting abnormal proteins to which the cancers are "addicted."

- Dana-Farber researchers find that physicians surveyed advise against
private blood banking of umbilical cord blood unless another family
member is at risk for a blood disease.
- Research shows ability to damage cancer cell DNA and prevent cells from
initiating a rest-and-repair process, causing them to self-destruct.
- Deprived of androgen hormones, the receptor finds an alternative genetic
pathway to continue growth of prostate cancer cells. An understanding
of this behavior could lead to new therapies targeting specific genes.
