Medical News Today: Asparagus amino acid helps deadly breast cancer to spread
An amino acid derived from a wide range of foods, including asparagus, helps triple-negative breast cancer to spread in the body, a new study has found.
The presence of HER3 expression and a high HER2/CEP17 ratio distinguish a group of invasive HER2-positive ductal breast cancer patients who have a worse prognosis.
With a sophisticated new algorithm, scientists have found a way to forecast an individual ’ s risks for five deadly diseases.
From time to time I have commented on the controversies over cancer screening. Most people assume that screening is an unqualified good, that early detection of cancer saves lives. Whenever some panel proposes recommending less screening, we hear screaming and yelling from advocates who claim they are trying to " ration " health care to save money at the expense of people's lives.In fact,as a bunch of Australians and a Minnesotan explain in BMJ, there are a few conditions called " cancer " that you are better off not treating, or perhaps treating very conservatively. These include what is called ductal ...

(Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard) A research team reports a new kind of genome analysis that could identify large fractions of the population who have a much higher risk of developing serious common diseases, including coronary artery disease, breast cancer, or type 2 diabetes. These tests, which use information from millions of places in the genome to ascertain risk for five diseases, can flag greater likelihood of developing the potentially fatal conditions well before any symptoms appear.
