C. elegans model shows how RAS oncogene switching determines a cell's fate
Researchers investigating a genetic mutation in brain cancer and leukemia patients have discovered how one cancer metabolite battles another normal metabolite to contribute cancer development. Helping the “good guys” win that battle could yield new approaches for treatment.
Heartfelt thanks to the staff of the N.C. Cancer Hospital, fellow UNC employees, our volunteers, patients, families, and friends. The Oncology Winter Coat Drive was a tremendous success - 107 winter coats were collected and distributed to our families and their caregivers throughout the month of January until February 11, 2011. Hats, scarves, gloves, and socks were added to each winter coat selection as needed. A very special Valentine’s Day thank you to all for sharing your hearts!

G-Zero Therapeutics funded under Qualifying Therapeutic Discovery Project
In a study published this month in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, the results of a clinical trial of the drug bevacizumab to treat colon cancer in combination with the standard therapy found that the drug did not significantly increase disease-free survival in patients with stage II and stage III colon cancer.
