This fact sheet examines the role of physical activity and exercise in cancer prevention and cancer survivorship.
This fact sheet explores the evidence that tea consumption may aid cancer prevention.
A recent study has demonstrated that the malaria drug chloroquine normalizes the abnormal blood vessels in tumors, which can aid in blocking cancer cell dissemination and metastasis.
Diet and nutrition are significant factors in preventing hepatic diseases progressing to hepatocellular carcinoma, and coffee is high on the list of good foods.
Data from two randomized controlled trials suggest that bisphosphonate use does not protect against postmenopausal breast cancer, according to research.
Daily aspirin appears beneficial for men and women between ages 50 and 65 in the general population.
So-called "resistant" starch, found in root vegetables, grains and legumes, may reverse some of the cancer risks of red meat consumption.
New research raises the prospect that some cancer patients with aggressive tumors may benefit from a class of anti-inflammatory drugs currently used to treat rheumatoid arthritis.
A research meta-analysis suggests that the anti-cancer properties of antioxidants may have been overstated, and that, in some cases, antioxidants could even have an adverse effect with regard to cancer.
Can one of the most popular beverages in the world limit or even prevent the growth of certain cancers?
This fact sheet explores possible relationships between antioxidants and cancer prevention.
Researchers from the Lustgarten Foundation and Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University offer an explanation of why antioxidant supplements may do more harm than good in regard to reducing cancer development.
A compound initially developed as a treatment for high cholesterol not only halts the progression of breast cancer, but also can kill cancer cells.
Scientists identified a molecular trigger that prompts the unrestricted cell growth in cancer. A protein in the TOR signaling pathway, SREBP, controls the flow of messages to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to produce enough proteins and lipids to support nonstop growth.
Researchers from the University of Basel were able to show that aspirin use and smoking both influence aging processes of the female genome that are connected to colorectal cancer.
Reducing carbohydrate intake could reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence among women whose tumor tissue is positive for the insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF1) receptor, according to a new study.
A diet rich in dairy products may slightly extend the lives of people diagnosed with colon cancer, a new study suggests.
Clinical trials have begun for PFK-158, a small-molecule therapeutic candidate that inactivates a novel cancer metabolism target never before examined in human clinical trials.
Antiviral treatment for hepatitis B virus (HBV) may be associated with a lower risk of hepatocellular carcinoma, researchers reported.
An enzyme commonly used as a target for antidepressants may also promote prostate cancer growth, according to an international team of scientists.
Scientists have found a way to target elusive cells that suppress immune response, depleting them with peptides that spare other important cells and shrink tumors in preclinical experiments, according to a new study.
Patients who express pretreatment concern about treatment symptoms such as nausea and memory problems tend to suffer higher symptom burdens during and after anticancer treatment, suggests research.
A prospective survey found no reduction in cancer incidence in women eating organic food, but there's more to the story.
Inhibiting a single protein completely shuts down the growth of pancreatic cancer, according to new research.
A breast cancer therapy that blocks estrogen synthesis to activate cancer-killing genes sometimes loses its effectiveness because the cancer takes over epigenetic mechanisms, according to researchers.
Scientists have identified a major mitochondrial pathway that allows cancer cells to survive in a low-glucose environment.
Pancreatic stellate cells, which normally aid tissue repair, unwittingly help pancreatic cancer grow and spread in a method of cell hijack only seen before in brain and breast cancer, according to new research. The research also revealed that the process can be blocked, thereby preventing the growth and spread of the tumor.
A group of researchers discovered a promising new approach to treating leukemia by disarming a gene that is responsible for tumor progression.
Grape seed can aid the effectiveness of chemotherapy in killing colon cancer cells as well as reducing chemotherapy side effects, according to new research.
