An important transition is happening across the United States: Cancer was the leading cause of death in more counties in 2015 than 13 years earlier, a new study finds. However, the opposite was true for heart disease during that period; fewer counties reported it as the top killer.
(CNN) — The US Food and Drug Administration says another heart medicine is being voluntarily recalled after tests showed that it was tainted with a potential cancer-causing chemical. The recall includes one lot of Sandoz’s losartan potassium hydrochlorothiazide 100 milligram/25 milligram tablets with the lot number JB8912. Patients use these drugs to keep their high blood pressure in check. The drug is being recalled because the active ingredient has tested positive for N-Nitrosodiethylamine or NDEA, a suspected human and animal carcinogen that is used in gasoline as a stabilizer for industry materials and as a...
Simple ovarian cysts have almost zero percent chance of developing into cancer, according to a new study, and don't require surgery or monitoring.
When it comes to doctors getting patients to go get overdue cancer screenings, phone calls work better than letters, according to a new study.

To that aim, multilayer films of alginate (Alg) and chitosan (Chi) were built up through spray assisted layer-by-layer (LbL) technique employing an automatic equipment. A specific drug against breast cancer, tamoxifen (TMX), was incorporated in different intermediate position...

However, the development of more efficient heat nanomediators that exhibit very high specific absorption rate (SAR) value is essential for clinical application to overcome the several restrictions previously encountered due to the large quantity of nanomaterial required f...

Mariano CorreaAbstractIn this contribution it is described an electrochemical procedure for the study of the protective effect of noscapine against lipid oxidation when incorporated into 1,2-dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DOPC) LUVs (large unilamellar vesicles). Noscapine is a lipophilic alkaloid from poppy flowers with antioxidant activity, used as antitussive in drug formulations. It also has anti-cancer properties. Vesicles c...
