New study highlights strong anti-cancer properties of soybeans: inhibited cancer cell growth by 73% for colon cancer, 70% for liver cancer and 68% for lung cancer

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: March 21, 2013

Contact: Sacha Boucherie S.Boucherie@elsevier.com 31-204-853-564 Elsevier First study to report that proteins found in soybeans, could inhibit growth of colon, liver and lung cancers, published in Food Research International Soybean meal is a bi-product following oil extraction from soybean seeds. It is rich in protein, which usually makes up around 40% of the nutritional components of the seeds and dependent on the line, and can also contain high oleic acid (a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid). The study looked at the role soybeans could have in the prevention of cancer. Using a variety of soybean lines which were high in oleic…

Coffee reduces breast cancer risk / protective effect of coffee on breast cancer was only measurable for ER-negative breast cancer.

Relevance: 65%      Posted on: March 30, 2014

Public release date: 10-May-2011 Recently published research shows that coffee drinkers enjoy not only the taste of their coffee but also a reduced risk of cancer with their cuppa. More detailed research published today in BioMed Central’s open access journal Breast Cancer Research shows that drinking coffee specifically reduces the risk of antiestrogen-resistant estrogen-receptor (ER)-negative breast cancer. Researchers from Sweden compared lifestyle factors and coffee consumption between women with breast cancer and age-matched women without. They found that coffee drinkers had a lower incidence of breast cancer than women who rarely drank coffee. However they also found that several lifestyle…

Scientists develop new cancer-killing compound from salad plant / 1,200 times more specific in killing certain kinds of cancer cells than currently available drugs

Relevance: 51%      Posted on: October 15, 2008

Public release date: 13-Oct-2008 Researchers at the University of Washington have updated a traditional Chinese medicine to create a compound that is more than 1,200 times more specific in killing certain kinds of cancer cells than currently available drugs, heralding the possibility of a more effective chemotherapy drug with minimal side effects. The new compound puts a novel twist on the common anti-malarial drug artemisinin, which is derived from the sweet wormwood plant (Artemisia annua L). Sweet wormwood has been used in herbal Chinese medicine for at least 2,000 years, and is eaten in salads in some Asian countries. The…

Particular HPV strain linked to improved prognosis for throat cancer Date: September 28, 2016 Source: University of North Carolina Health Care System Summary: Findings of improved survival for patients with a type of head and neck cancer linked to HPV-16, and comparatively worse outcomes for other HPV strains, have treatment implications.   When it comes to cancer-causing viruses like human papillomavirus, or HPV, researchers are continuing to find that infection with one strain may be better than another. In an analysis of survival data for patients with a particular type of head and neck cancer, researchers from the University of…

Common cancer treatments may create dangerous cancer stem cells

Relevance: 51%      Posted on: September 28, 2012

By Charles Q. Choi Published September 27, 2012| MyHealthNewsDaily   Radiation  therapy and chemotherapy aimed at killing cancer cells may have the undesirable  effect of helping to create cancer stem cells, which are thought to be  particularly adept at generating new tumors and are especially resistant to  treatment, researchers say. The  finding might help explain why late-stage  cancers are often resistant to both radiation therapy and  chemotherapy, and it could point to new strategies to fight tumors. Past  studies hint that cancer  stem cells give rise to new  tumors. Researchers suggest they are ultimately responsible for the recurrence  of cancers…

Public Release: 1-Feb-2008     Simple urine test leads to more accurate diagnoses, fewer false-positive results   PHILADELPHIA - An experimental biomarker test developed by researchers at the University of Michigan more accurately detects prostate cancer than any other screening method currently in use, according to a study published in the February 1 issue of Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research. The researchers say a simple urine test that screens for the presence of four different RNA molecules accurately identified 80 percent of patients in a study who were later found to have prostate cancer,…

Contact: Anita Srikameswaran SrikamAV@upmc.edu 412-578-9193 University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences PITTSBURGH, Aug. 15 – Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI) have identified the oncoprotein that allows a common and usually harmless virus to transform healthy cells into a rare but deadly skin cancer called Merkel Cell Carcinoma (MCC). Their findings, published today in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, could improve diagnosis for MCC and may help in understanding how other cancers arise. Three years ago, Yuan Chang, M.D., and Patrick S. Moore, M.D., M.P.H., in the Cancer Virology Program at UPCI, discovered a new…

The results of this investigation published online today in JAMA Internal Medicine suggest that up to 18 percent of the cancers detected by LDCT may not have progressed enough…

Low cholesterol linked with worse survival in patients with kidney cancer // PUBLIC RELEASE DATE: 12-Jun-2014 People are often told to reduce their cholesterol to improve their heart health, but new research suggests that low cholesterol may increase kidney cancer patients' risk of dying from their disease. The findings, which are published in BJU International, indicate that cholesterol testing may help doctors as they monitor and treat patients with kidney cancer. Increasing evidence suggests that alterations in cholesterol and other lipids are associated with the development, progression, and prognosis of various cancers. To assess the situation as it relates to…
