This fact sheet examines possible links between consumption of cruciferous vegetables and cancer prevention.
Previous studies linking moderate alcohol consumption to health benefits may have omitted some important details, according to British researchers.
A new strategy that makes it more difficult for cancer cells to spread, rather than eliminating them outright, is being examined.
Study results identified the population of white blood cells that tumors use to enhance growth and suppress the disease-fighting immune system, a step that can greater aid in immunotherapy development.
Research supports recent expert guidelines on an anti-cancer lifestyle from the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research.
An oral targeted agent has shown encouraging activity and limited side effects in patients with treatment-resistant or relapsed acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), according to research.
The most commonly used medications for osteoporosis worldwide, bisphosphonates, may also prevent certain kinds of lung, breast, and colon cancers, according to two recent studies.
Investigators have identified two compounds that appear to block the cardiac damage caused by doxorubicin. Their report indicates that inhibiting the action of an enzyme key to the generation of cellular energy in mitochondria could prevent doxorubicin-induced damage to cardiac cells without reducing the drug's antitumor effects.
A popular indigestion medication can increase survival in colorectal cancer; researchers have studied this effect for some time but the research conclusions may have been overlooked.
Researchers also found exercising seven hours or more a week boosted chances of living longer, whereas watching too much TV had the opposite effect.
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.

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.
