  • Cancer may depend on signals transmitted through a chain of cellular events. In Ewing's Sarcoma, CU Cancer Center researchers detail new links that offer chances to break this chain.

    Study: Possible New Druggable Target in Ewing’s Sarcoma

    A University of Colorado Cancer Center study, recently published in the journal Oncogene, shows that downstream from the oncogenic fusion of genes EWS with FLI1 is a signaling chain that includes microRNA-22 and the gene KDM3A. By targeting these links, researchers hope to break this cancer-causing chain.
