March 2016—Reproducibility of residual cancer burden for assessing breast cancer after neoadjuvant chemotherapy: The residual cancer burden index was developed to quantify residual disease ranging from pathological complete response to extensive residual disease. The authors conducted a study to evaluate inter-pathologist reproducibility in the residual cancer burden index score and category and in their long-term prognostic utility.

March 2016—Enhancing tumor selectivity of a picornavirus virotherapy: Oncolytic viruses that selectively target tumor cells are a promising cancer therapy and are thought to work not only via direct lysis and destruction of tumor cells but also through recruitment and activation of the host’s anti-tumor immune response. While there are a number of naturally occurring viruses that preferentially replicate in cancer cells and have otherwise limited effects in human tissue, the real therapeutic promise lies in genetically engineered viruses.
