Aggressive Tobacco Control Programs Reduces California Lung Cancer Deaths by 28%

California has reduced smoking faster than any other state in the Unites States. Early adoption of tobacco control efforts led to fewer people ever smoking, reduced the amount used by those who do smoke and helped smokers quit at a younger age — when their risk of developing lung cancer is lowest. As a result, the authors of a new...

Lung Cancer Mortality Rates Among Women Projected to Increase

The global age-standardized lung cancer mortality rate among women is projected to increase by 43% from 2015 to 2030. This is the conclusion from a recent analysis of data from 52 countries reported in Cancer Research, a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) covering research on all aspects of cancer and cancer-related biomedical sciences. The...

Analysis Shows Healthy Diets Associated with Lower Cancer Risk

A study published in Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), confirms that a diet that encourages both healthy eating and physical activity and discourages alcohol consumption was associated with a reduced overall cancer risk, as well as lower breast, prostate, and colorectal cancer risks. The study funded by public and governmental grants from agencies...

Immunotherapy’s Promise for Lung Cancer Treatment

Cancer research is often defined by slow, incremental progress, building upon years, often decades, of previous discoveries. Then if we get lucky, someone figures out something that adds jet fuel to the process, propelling the entire field forward with new energy and new optimism. As chief of oncology at Yale and having cared for lung cancer patients for the...

Patients with Diabetes have an Increased Risk of Developing and Dying from Breast and Colon Cancer

Diabetes and cancer are common diseases with tremendous impact on health and healthcare worldwide expenditure. A growing number of epidemiological and clinical studies find evidence suggesting that diabetes is directly linked to an increased risk of developing certain types of cancer. Now, researchers in The Netherlands have performed a unique meta-analysis that excludes all other causes of death and...

No Increased Mortality Risks for Early-stage Breast Cancer Patients Receiving XRT

According to research presented today at the American Society for Radiation Oncology's (ASTRO's) 55th Annual Meeting, being held in Atlanta,September 22-25, 2013, early-stage breast cancer patients who receive external beam therapy or XRT are not at higher risk for serious long-term side effects in the chest area, including increase in deaths from cardiac disease and secondary malignancies.Various studies have...

Radiation Therapy for DCIS Does Not Seem to Increase Cardiovascular Disease Risk

While noninvasive and not life-threatening, it may progress to invasive breast cancer if left untreated and therefor requires treatment.Historically, many women with DCIS underwent...

Study Shows Expression of Polycomb Targets may Accurately Predict Breast Cancer Prognosis and Progression

Researchers from the Unit on Biomedical Informatics, Department of Experimental and Health Sciences, Universitat Pompeu Fabrain Barcelona, Spain, have identified a protein that they believe may help predict breast cancer prognosis. According to the researchers, this finding may potentially relieve thousands of women at low risk for breast cancer from having to undergo painful, often debilitating therapies, while insuring...
