Research suggests effective role for natural steroid hormones in treating breast cancer

Research suggests effective role for natural steroid hormones in treating breast cancer

A new study supports a growing body of research suggesting a safe and effective role for natural steroid hormones in treating postmenopausal breast cancer, with fewer detrimental side effects and improved health profile than with standard anti-hormone therapies. [More]

Scientist fights extremely aggressive and difficult-to-treat form of breast cancer

Biomedical scientist Kimberly L. Koss, PhD, is fighting an extremely aggressive and difficult-to-treat form of breast cancer. [More]
New findings paint optimistic picture of women's chances of surviving breast cancer

New findings paint optimistic picture of women's chances of surviving breast cancer

New findings from Fox Chase Cancer Center paint a relatively optimistic picture of women's chances of surviving a subset of breast cancers that have spread to the chest wall or skin, but not beyond. [More]
Conventional fertility hormones do not increase risk of breast, gynecological cancers

Conventional fertility hormones do not increase risk of breast, gynecological cancers

There is "little evidence" that the use of conventional fertility hormones used for ovarian stimulation in the treatment of infertility increases the long-term risk of breast and gynecological cancers, according to the results of a substantial 30-year follow-up study. [More]
CHOP launches Fetal Neuroprotection and Neuroplasticity Program

CHOP launches Fetal Neuroprotection and Neuroplasticity Program

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia today launched the Fetal Neuroprotection and Neuroplasticity Program. Building on growing evidence of the interaction of heart disease and brain development in the fetus, this Program will systematically investigate innovative therapies to protect brain development and to prevent brain injury as early as possible before birth.

Adeno-associated virus type 2 kills triple-negative breast cancer cells in mice

Adeno-associated virus type 2 kills triple-negative breast cancer cells in mice

A virus not known to cause disease kills triple-negative breast cancer cells and killed tumors grown from these cells in mice, according to Penn State College of Medicine researchers. Understanding how the virus kills cancer may lead to new treatments for breast cancer. [More]
Research on effects of caffeine on young people after puberty

Research on effects of caffeine on young people after puberty

Caffeine intake by children and adolescents has been rising for decades, due in large part to the popularity of caffeinated sodas and energy drinks, which now are marketed to children as young as four. [More]
Lifestyle changes, natural supplements can help women fight weight gain during menopause

Lifestyle changes, natural supplements can help women fight weight gain during menopause

Menopause, which tends to occur in midlife, is often known for causing weight gain. Menopausal weight gain is frequently caused by the hormonal changes that occur as the ovaries slow their production of estrogen and progesterone. [More]
New targets could increase effectiveness and reduce side effects linked with breast cancer treatments

New targets could increase effectiveness and reduce side effects linked with breast cancer treatments

Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have found new targets for potential intervention in breast cancer. These new targets could eventually increase effectiveness and reduce the undesirable side effects associated with current treatments. [More]

Macrophages present in shed endometrium may contribute to lesion formation, shows study

Macrophages present in shed endometrium may contribute to lesion formation, shows study

A mouse model of endometriosis has been developed that produces endometriosis lesions similar to those found in humans, according to a report published in The American Journal of Pathology. [More]
Exposure to elevated levels of steroid hormones in the womb linked to later development of autism

Exposure to elevated levels of steroid hormones in the womb linked to later development of autism

Scientists from the University of Cambridge and the Statens Serum Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark have discovered that children who later develop autism are exposed to elevated levels of steroid hormones (for example testosterone, progesterone and cortisol) in the womb. The finding may help explain why autism is more common in males than females, but should not be used to screen for the condition. [More]
Goserelin can help reduce risk of early menopause in young women with breast cancer

Goserelin can help reduce risk of early menopause in young women with breast cancer

Among young women treated for breast cancer, one of the most distressing side effects of chemotherapy is early menopause. [More]

Findings may help medical researchers identify effective drug targets for triple negative breast cancer

Findings may help medical researchers identify effective drug targets for triple negative breast cancer

The suppression of two genes reduce breast cancer tumor formation and metastasis by interfering with blood vessel formation and recruitment, report scientists from Houston Methodist and five other institutions in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (now online). [More]
Researchers identify chemical signals that promote breast cancer metastasis

Researchers identify chemical signals that promote breast cancer metastasis

Working with mice, Johns Hopkins researchers report they have identified chemical signals that certain breast cancers use to recruit two types of normal cells needed for the cancers' spread. [More]
USPTO grants two additional patents to SeroVital-hgh formula

USPTO grants two additional patents to SeroVital-hgh formula

SeroVital®-hgh, the "Fountain of Youth" Formula everyone's talking about, has been making headlines ever since a group of some of the most renowned researchers in the world revealed that this oral compound is actually capable of increasing mean, endogenous, serum (blood) human growth hormone (hGH) levels by 682%. Experts everywhere — from dermatologists and obesity researchers to women's healthcare providers and even the famed Dr. Oz himself — began paying attention to this groundbreaking formula. [More]

Scientists find new way to predict response to platinum-based chemotherapy in women with triple-negative breast cancer

Researchers from University Hospitals (UH) Case Medical Center's Seidman Cancer Center will present findings from a study that found the presence of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell, ahead of treatment may help predict response to platinum-based chemotherapy in women with triple-negative breast cancer.

Study links triple-negative breast cancer to ethnicity, independent of socioeconomics

Study links triple-negative breast cancer to ethnicity, independent of socioeconomics

An analysis of a large nationwide dataset finds that regardless of their socioeconomic status, black women were nearly twice as likely as white women to be diagnosed with triple-negative (TN) breast cancer, a subtype that has a poorer prognosis. [More]
