Researchers from New Ohio State University have shown an association between breast cancer survivors' use of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and reports of problems with concentration and memory. On average, cognitive problems reported by PPI users were between 20 and 29 percent more severe than issues reported by non-PPI users. PPIs are sold under such brand names as Nexium, Prevacid ...

A new investigational cancer drug that targets tumors caused by mutations in the KRAS gene will be evaluated in phase 2 clinical trials, following promising safety and efficacy results in preliminary human studies and excellent results in animal studies. The drug, developed by Amgen and currently referred to as AMG 510, is the first therapy to reach clinical trials that inhibits a mutant KRAS prot...

Prostate Cancer According to a new University College of London-led computer modelling study, nearly one in six deaths from prostate cancer could be prevented if targeted screening was introduced for men at a higher genetic risk of the disease. Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men with around 1.3 million new cases diagnosed globally each year and more than 400,000 men a yea...

Medical researchers at Children's Medical Center Research Institute at University Of Texas Southwestern (CRI) have uncovered why certain melanoma cells are more likely to spread through the body. The discovery opens up a potential new avenue of treatment and could be used to help reduce the proportion of patients who progress from stage 3 melanoma to more-deadly stage 4 cancer. Dr. Sean Mor...

Oncologists who treat patients with the aggressive triple negative breast cancer have two new ways to predict which cancer patients may benefit most from the well-established post-surgery treatment known as AC chemotherapy, short for adjuvant doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide. Oncology researchers from the SWOG Cancer Research Network, a cancer clinical trials network funded by the National Canc...

Though prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men globally, we still have yet to know all of its causes. The largest ever study to use genetics as a measurement for physical activity to look at its effect on prostate cancer, reveals that being more active reduces the risk of prostate cancer. Over 140,000 men were included in the study, of which, 80,000 had prostate cancer. The study, publ...

A Phase 11 clinical trial involving a pioneering precision medicine already licensed for breast and ovarian cancer can also slow or stop tumour growth in some men with advanced prostate cancer. The recently concluded phase II trial found that over 80 per cent of men with prostate cancer whose tumours had mutations in the BRCA genes responded well to treatment with the target...

Dr. David P. Labbé, a scientist at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC), and his colleagues were recently able to discover what molecular events occur for prostate cancer to progress faster and to be deadlier when patients eat a high-fat diet in an extensive research study. In a study published in Nature Communications, they showed that saturated f...

A new research by Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre has shed new light on why men are more likely than women to get cancer, uncovering a new role for the X chromosome in affecting cancer risk and mortality. While males are known to have a higher risk of developing, and dying from, cancer compared to women even when matched for other known cancer risk factors like age, race, smoking histor...
