Cancer rates are steadily increasing worldwide and are projected to continue to rise during the next decade. But what part of it is a true increase and what part is influenced by other factors, such as reporting and quality of various cancer registries, is unclear. In this week's blog post, we will highlight some of the common terms used when discussing cancer statistics and what to consider when interpreting it...Read more
A bit more than two decades ago, the first Diablo game was released to the world. A game about a lone hero tasked with bringing down Diablo, one of the lords of Hell. This month we highlight a namesake to this hellish lord of terror, the protein DIABLO...Read more
Testicular cancer is a rare type of cancer. Most testis cancers are curable, even at an advanced stage. The cancer can be divided into essentially two categories: Seminoma and Non-seminomatous germ cell tumors. Based on transcriptomics data and clinical metadata we have been able to determine 57 genes associated with either favorable or unfavorable prognosis in testis cancer...Read more
Head and neck cancer arises in the epithelium of the nasal cavity, sinuses, lips, mouth, salivary glands, throat, or larynx. By using a systems level approach to analyze the head and neck cancer proteome based on clinical metadata and genome-wide transcriptomics data, 792 genes were found to be associated with prognostic outcome...Read more
Although thyroid cancer is fairly common, it has a relatively good prognosis compared to other cancers. Survival varies depending on type of thyroid cancer, with papillary carcinoma, the most common type, having the highest survival rate. By using a systems level approach to analyze the thyroid cancer proteome based on clinical metadata and genome-wide transcriptomics data, 374 genes were found to be associated with prognostic outcome...Read more
