Animal Model Shows High-Fat Diets Cause Inflammation and Cancer, But Type of Fat Matters

A high-fat-diet-induced immune reaction causes inflammation leading to intestinal cancer in a mouse model – even among animals that are not obese — according to a study from the Pacific Northwest Research Institute’s (PNRI) Nadeau Lab, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Case Western Reserve University, and others.

Epidemiological and clinical evidence have linked obesity with inflammation and increased risk

Bioinformatics Holds the Promise of Developing Personalized Treatment for Cancer Patients

In May 2016, Pacific Northwest Research Institute (PNRI) and Indivumed GmbH (Indivumed), based in Hamburg, Germany, entered a strategic collaboration led by PNRI’s David Galas, PhD. The collaboration is designed to harness the power of molecular and clinical cancer data for tailoring successful treatments for individual cancer patients.

Indivumed’s global Cancer Database and Biobank contains more than 4.5 million biological data
