Work-related stress is not linked to the development of colorectal, lung, breast or prostate cancers, a new study suggests. Around 90% of cancers are linked to environmental exposures and whilst some exposures are well recognised (such as UV radiation and tobacco smoke), others are not (psychological factors such as stress).
Axl is consistently overexpressed in prostate cancer cell lines and human prostate tumors. Blocking Axl gene expression strongly inhibits proliferation, migration, invasion and tumor growth researchers find. Results may have implications for new treatment development
A new study suggests that exercise may reduce Caucasian men’s risk of developing prostate cancer. And among Caucasian men who do have prostate cancer, exercise may reduce their risk of having more serious forms of the disease. The benefits do not seem to apply to African- American men according to this study published in CANCER.
Toremifene 20 mg did not lower the prostate cancer detection rate in the phase III study, but men with isolated high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN) do have a high likelihood of eventual PCa diagnosis. The authors recommend that these men be included in chemoprevention trials and are monitored by periodic prostate biopsy.
