Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory: New Research Explains Why Even Targeted Therapies Eventually Fail in Lung Cancer

NEW YORK – Nearly 50 years into the “war” on cancer, doctors possess weapons that once would have seemed magical in their tumor-killing specificity. The drug Tarceva (erlotinib), for example, can virtually erase all traces of aggressive lung cancer tumors in a subset of patients who bear a particular disease-driving mutation in a gene called EGFR. The problem with this and other drugs of the targeted-treatment era is that usually they afford only a respite. Within a year or two, most people suffer a recurrence. They can be treate... Read More

NEW YORK – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has purchased approximately $2.5 million in laboratory supplies and equipment in August to enhance U.S. laboratory (lab) capacity to test for Zika virus. These purchases help to ensure that states can meet the growing demand for testing and rapid identification of Zika infection, by providing them with materials that allow them to perform testing for Zika virus infection. Relatively few labs in the U.S. are certified to test for Zika. As a result, when samples are collected, they often have to be shipped to a local health depar... Read More

by Michael Adams The international community is up in arms following the detonation of a nuclear warhead by North Korea on Friday morning.
