Why eating yogurt may help lessen the risk of breast cancer

One of the causes of breast cancer may be inflammation triggered by harmful bacteria say researchers. Scientists say their idea- as yet unproven—is supported by the available evidence, which is that bacterial induced inflammation is linked to cancer. The paper in the journal Medical Hypotheses is by Lancaster University medical student Auday Marwaha, Professor Jim

Editing RNA delivers precision strike on triple-negative breast cancer

The move toward targeted anti-cancer treatments has produced better outcomes with fewer side-effects for many breast cancer patients. But so far, advances in precision medicine haven’t reached people diagnosed with so-called triple-negative breast cancer. An innovative compound developed in the lab of Scripps Research chemist Matthew D. Disney, Ph.D., offers a new potential route to

Residual cancer burden after neoadjuvant therapy can accurately predict breast cancer survival

Researchers from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center today reported results from a pooled analysis of more than 5,100 breast cancer patients that found residual cancer burden (RCB) continuous index and classification were independently and strongly prognostic for all breast cancer phenotypes. The study’s results were presented by W. Fraser Symmans, M.D., professor

Herbal remedies could interfere with breast cancer treatments

Herbal remedies such as turmeric, ginseng and garlic could interfere with breast cancer treatments, doctors warn At an advanced stage of breast cancer, lesions often spread to the skin  Many patients attempt to sooth these with creams and herbal treatments But researchers based in Portugal have now said these delay wound healing And they warned

Breast cancer deaths hit a record LOW, analysis reveals

80% of women don’t know alcohol causes breast cancer

Four fifths of women do NOT know alcohol causes breast cancer – and NHS staff ‘are afraid of being patronising’ by warning them Researchers from the University of Southampton surveyed a total of 238 people They included women  at breast screening appointments and NHS staff In a group of women at a screening clinic only

Researchers first to develop comprehensive models of ‘seeds and soil’ as a means to combat breast cancer metastasis

Scientists at VCU Massey Cancer Center have identified key biological pathways that regulate the spread of tumor cells to vital organs. These findings may have a significant influence on the development of new therapies that slow or prevent breast cancer metastasis. Metastasis refers to the spread of cancer cells to other organs, and the likelihood

Trial remedies racial disparities in treatment for early-stage lung and breast cancer patients

Results from a study published in the Journal of the National Medical Association show that a pragmatic system-based intervention within cancer treatment centers can nearly eliminate existing disparities in treatment and outcomes for black patients with early-stage lung and breast cancer. The treatment completion rates before this intervention were 87.3 percent for white patients versus
