Researchers Discover Surprising Genetic Link Between Breast Cancer & Salivary Gland Cancer

A new study suggests that those who carry mutated BRCA genes (which are associated with high breast cancer risks) are 17 times more likely to get salivary cancer than those who don’t carry the genes. Read More

Using Genomics to Improve Lung Cancer Treatment

Genomics – the study of the genetic makeup of an organism – helps researchers and oncologists pinpoint why there is no routine lung cancer. Read More

Genomics – the study of the genetic makeup of an organism – helps researchers and oncologists pinpoint why there is no routine lung cancer. Every lung cancer has a unique set of genetic abnormalities, and studying an individual’s genomics allows experts to gain insights into that person's unique cancer. Read More

OCCPI: Pelotonia-Funded Research Saves Lives of At-Risk Family Members

James McDaniel’s colon cancer diagnosis came as no surprise. His father, uncle and grandfather all succumbed to the disease in their mid-40s. Read More

James McDaniel’s colon cancer diagnosis came as no surprise. His father, uncle and grandfather all succumbed to the disease in their mid-40s. “I’d been expecting it,” says McDaniel, who was age 48 at the time of his diagnosis. A vice president of the mortgage division at Huntington and father of three daughters, McDaniel had been cleared during his cancer screening at age 44 and told to come back for another screening in five years - but that was prior to the discovery that he has Lynch syndrome, an inherited genetic condition that predisposes individuals to colorectal and uterine cancer.

Lynch Syndrome: The Cancer Connection Uncovered [INFOGRAPHIC]

Researchers at the OSUCCC – James discovered just how big of an impact genetic variations can have on an individual’s cancer detection, prevention, treatment and cure. Read More

There is no routine cancer, and researchers at the OSUCCC – James discovered just how big of an impact genetic variations can have on an individual’s cancer detection, prevention, treatment and cure when they found a direct relationship between the presence of Lynch syndrome and colorectal cancer in patients. This discovery led to a pioneering of screening efforts to increase years of life for those affected with LS. Read More
