The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) has bad news for lovers of bacon and booze: Eliminating processed meats and alcohol from your diet may help reduce your risk of developing cancer. The third report from the WCRF’s Continuous Update Project, an ongoing effort to inform consumers about lifestyle habits that may be related to cancer, provides numerous recommendations for people looking to minimize their risk of getting cancer.

Conclusions: The purification of the intermediate methyl 3-[18F] fluoro-2-hydroxy-propionate using HPLC was essential with the presence of a byproduct methyl 2-[18F] fluoro-3-hydroxy-propionate in the nucleophilic ring opening reaction. Although further optimization of preparation and catabolism of 3-[18F] lactate are required, the preliminary in vivo PET imaging results showed the specific tumor uptake of 3-[18F] lactate. And these findings could be used to inform the development of tumor lactate metabolism imaging agents.

Authors: Horakova D, Bouchalova K, Cwiertka K, Stepanek L, Vlckova J, Kollarova H Abstract Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is an aggressive form of breast cancer (BC) with a poor prognosis. Second, patients cannot benefit from targeted therapy, except for those with BRCA1/2 mutations, for whom poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibition therapy using olaparib has recently been approved. As global priorities continue to be epidemiological analysis of BC risk factors and early diagnosis, this review focuses on the risks and protective factors associated with TNBC. A PubMed keyword search for new knowledge on ...

Background/Aim: The family of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are responsible for the homeostasis of extracellular matrix components and their genetic polymorphisms may be associated with cancer susceptibility. The serum levels of MMP-1 have been reported to be lower in breast cancer patients than healthy subjects. In the current study, we aimed at investigating the contribution of a polymorphism in the promoter region of MMP-1 to breast cancer in Taiwan. Materials and Methods: The MMP-1 rs1799705 polymorphic genotypes were genotyped among 1,232 breast cancer patients and 1,232 healthy controls by the typical polymerase c...
