Low Oxygen in Cells might spur Cancer Growth

Fri, 04 May 2012 05:08:39 +0000


(Best Syndication News) - The tumor growth rate of certain cancers could be increased with low oxygen levels, according to recent study from researchers at the University of Georgia. The study was published in the early online edition of the Journal of Molecular Cell Biology.

The current consensus of most researchers is that genetic mutation is the main cause of cancer growth. This study suggests another cause: low oxygen levels (hypoxia) in cells. Oxygen may play a role in unruly tumor growth in certain types of cancer. Prior research showed that low oxygen levels were a contributing factor to cause cancer to advance, however, they did not point to it as the main cause.

Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer Linked To Higher Risk Of Other Cancers

Tue, 26 Aug 2008 23:29:20 +0000


Squamous Cell Carcinoma

(Best Syndication News) People who are diagnosed with nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) may be at double the risk for other cancers including lung, colon and breast cancers. Previous research found a link between NMSC and subsequent melanoma, but this is the first study to investigate a relation between NMSC and cancers in other organs besides the skin.

The current study was conducted by Anthony Alberg, Ph.D., of the Medical University of South Carolina and his colleagues. They began to compare the risk of malignancies in 769 individuals who had been diagnosed with non-melanoma skin cancer and 18,405 individuals with no history of the disease. Beginning in 1989 they followed the participants for 16 years.

Prostate Cancer Treatment and Heart Disease

Mon, 06 Aug 2007 12:56:39 +0000

Many men with prostate cancer are treated with hormones that block the effects of testosterone, the primary male sex hormone. This is because many prostate cancers thrive on testosterone.

By depriving them of testosterone, the prostate cancer cells “starve” and die. This treatment is called androgen suppression therapy. Usually, it is men with aggressive prostate cancer and those with prostate cancers that cause the prostate gland to enlarge who benefit the most from androgen suppression therapy.

Nearly every treatment that has benefits also has risks. Physicians must always weigh the benefits and risks of a treatment. Of course, the potential of androgen suppression therapy to prolong the life of men with prostate cancer and even increase the likelihood of it being cured cannot be disregarded. Nonetheless, the side effects of androgen suppression therapy include the loss of sex drive, anemia, osteoporosis, weight gain, decreased muscle mass, increase in bad cholesterol (LDL) and decrease in good cholesterol (HDL).

Lycopene May Not Reduce Risk For Prostate Cancer – Beta Carotene Increase Risk For Aggressive Form – Tomatoes Good Source

Thu, 17 May 2007 07:16:07 +0000


Ulrike Peters, Ph.D

(Best Syndication) Researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center report that lycopene does not effectively prevent prostate cancer and noted an association between beta-carotene, an antioxidant related to lycopene, and an increased risk for aggressive prostate cancer.

"It is disappointing, since lycopene might have offered a simple and inexpensive way to lower prostate cancer risk for men concerned about this common disease," said Ulrike Peters, Ph.D., M.P.H., of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. "Unfortunately, this easy answer just does not work."

Previous studies have been inconclusive suggesting a diet rich in lycopene protected against prostate cancer. But more recent studies have been contradictory and inconclusive concerning lycopene. In a 2006 study Peters found no overall association between lycopene intake and prostate cancer.

A Japanese study found that diets rich in soy may protect against prostate cancer in certain circumstances. The researchers found that these Japanese men that have a regular diet of soy products decreased their risk for developing localized prostate cancer but at the same time had and increased risk of developing advanced prostate cancer.

This large scale study included 43,509 men and the researchers from the National Cancer Center in Japan, suggest that the soy’s ioflavones work differently on prostate cancer depending on the stage of the cancer. The study was published in the March issue of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.

Green tea has been reported to fix hundreds of ailments, but a new research study has found that green tea when combined with low doses of COX-2 inhibitor could slow the spread of human prostate cancer. The study was first reported in the March 1st issue of the Clinical Cancer Research journal.

Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison completed a study with cell cultures in a mouse model to determine how COX-2 inhibitor celecoxib, administered with a green tea polyphenol called pigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) could possibly slow the growth of human prostate cancer.

Aspirin May Delay Enlarged Prostate – Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs Help Improve Symptoms

Wed, 30 Aug 2006 23:11:31 +0000


Aspirin has been shown to benefit many aspects of health, and now it appears aspirin and ibuprofen may help stave off an enlarged prostate. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota say that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin or ibuprofen may prevent or delay benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate).

Dr. Michael Lieber says “This study suggests that men’s urinary health may be improved by taking NSAIDs”. Lieber is a Mayo Clinic urologist and study investigator. He and his colleagues found the risk of developing an enlarged prostate was 50 percent lower in NSAID users compared to non-users, and risk of developing moderate to severe urinary symptoms was 35 percent lower.
