13 Apr Aspirin and Breast Cancer: Daily Regimen Helps Block Tumor Growth
By Kathleen Lees, Science World Report
Could a daily aspirin regimen help prevent the potential growth of breast cancer or even stop it from coming back?
New findings published in the journal Laboratory Investigation investigate how this medication may fight off cancer stem cell reproduction that can lead to relapse in some patients.
Study author Dr. Sushanta Banerjee of Kansas City Veterans Affairs Medical Center found that residual cancer stem cells can help push survival treatment from being inactive inside the human body until certain conditions will allow them to reproduce, adding that when they come back, they could become more aggressive in time.
