The death rate from cancer in the United States has continued to decline. From 1991 to 2018, the cancer death rate has fallen 31%....
Drinking alcohol has been linked with both developing and dying from several types of cancer. That’s why the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) Guideline for...
Researchers have discovered a new 'seeding' process in brain cells that could be a cause of dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
A new study finds that long-term aspirin use before a diagnosis of colorectal cancer (CRC) may be associated with lower CRC-specific mortality.
Cisplatin has been used to treat cancer since the 1970s. Since then, many other platinum-containing cytostatic drugs have been developed, such as triplatinNC, a highly charged complex that contains three ligand-bridged platinum atoms. Unlike cisplatin, this drug also directly inhibits metastasis. The reason for this seems to be modulation of the geometry of a sugar component of heparan sulfate, an important component of the extracellular matrix.
Researchers have tested a new combination therapy in animal models to see if they could find a way to make an already effective treatment even better. Since they're using a Food and Drug Administration-approved drug to do it, this could help people sooner than later.
