Rainforest vine compound starves pancreatic cancer cells
The researchers found that this new compound killed pancreatic cancer cells under conditions of nutrient starvation but not when nutrients were plentiful. Ancistrolikokine E3 also inhibited cancer cell migration and colonization in lab tests, which suggests that the compound could help prevent metastasis in patients.

The Link Between Diet Quality and CRC Outcomes | Cancer Network
Badly written but I think the gist is that it is worth changing your diet after a non-metastatic colorectal cancer diagnosis as it will improve survival even if your diet before then was crappy.

“Consistently observed inverse associations suggest that prognosis may improve with better post-diagnosis diet, even when prediagnosis diet quality was relatively low,” the researchers wrote. “These results were supported further in postdiagnostic models that identified statistically significant associations between diet quality and mortality that were independent of prediagnosis diet quality.”

Based on these results, the researchers wrote that recommendations should be made in support of high diet quality before and after colorectal cancer diagnosis to improve survival.

“Collectively, the results from all dietary patterns suggest that consumption of a diet high in plant products and fiber while limiting red and processed meat and added sugars both before and after diagnosis may be beneficial,” the researchers wrote.

Pancreatic cancer’s addiction could be its end
Cold Spring Harbor, NY — Cancer cells are often described as cells “gone bad” or “renegade.” New research reveals that in some of the deadliest cases of pancreatic cancer, these rebellious cells have an unexpected addiction. Now, scientists are investigating if that addiction can be used to bring about a tumor’s end. Cold Spring Harbor...

Jury delivers $25.5 million 'statement' to Aetna to change its ways - CNN
(CNN)An Oklahoma jury has awarded $25.5 million to the family of a cancer patient denied coverage by Aetna, with jurors saying that the insurer acted "recklessly" and that the verdict was meant as a message for Aetna to change its ways.
The award is believed to be the largest verdict in an individual "bad faith" insurance case in Oklahoma history, one court observer said, and could have major ramifications across the country for a form of cancer treatment called proton beam therapy.
The case revolved around the 2014 denial of coverage for Orrana Cunningham, who had stage 4 nasopharyngeal cancer near her brain stem. Her doctors wanted her to receive proton beam therapy, a targeted form of radiation that could pinpoint her tumor without the potential for blindness or other side effects of standard radiation.
Aetna denied her coverage, calling the therapy investigational and experimental.

Cancer stem cells get energy from protein, and it's proving to be their Achilles' heel
Healthy cells don't need to metabolize protein. The current study shows that cancer stem cells do need to metabolize protein. And this difference is proving to be an Achilles' heel that allows researchers to target cancer stem cells without harming healthy cells -- the approach has already proven effective in clinical trials against acute myeloid leukemia and holds promise for other cancers including breast, pancreatic, and liver.
