'Exercise through yoga' by Carl Conway, inspired by the Perspective on p620.


  • Editorial |

    This issue marks the publication of a Consensus Statement that proposes a classification system for the evolutionary and ecological features of cancers.

Research Highlight

    Vitamin C supplementation has shown limited benefits in patients with solid tumours. Two studies report that vitamin C supplementation can reduceTet-dependent leukaemia progression in mice, supporting the concept of high-dose vitamin C supplementation in certain patients with haematological malignancies.

    Although speckle-type POZ protein (SPOP) is the most frequently mutated gene in primary prostate cancer, its therapeutic implications are incompletely understood. Now, three studies describe mechanisms of resistance to bromodomain and extraterminal (BET) protein inhibitors in SPOP-mutated prostate cancer.

    Using DNA barcoding, Lanet al. investigated the clonal evolution and dynamics of glioblastoma cells, and propose a model whereby proliferative heterogeneity is derived from stochastic fate decisions made by a homogeneous population of glioblastoma stem cells and their progeny.

In Brief

Review Article

Consensus Statement

  • Consensus Statement | | Open Access

    Based on a consensus conference of experts in the evolution and ecology of cancer, this article proposes a framework for classifying tumours that includes four evolutionary and ecological processes: neoplastic cell diversity and changes over time in that diversity, hazards to cell survival and available resources.

    Emerging data indicate that exercise modulates cancer biology and disease outcomes; however, the molecular mechanisms are poorly established. In this Opinion article, the authors speculate on how exercise might reprogramme the tumour microenvironment to influence cancer hallmarks.
