Deadly link between alcohol and breast cancer is 'ignored by middle-aged women'

The headlines are once again filled with advice to reduce egg and cholesterol consumption based on a study that found an association of egg and cholesterol consumption with increased risk for cardiovascular events. Sounds scary and persuasive, doesn’t it? After all, nearly 30,000 people were tracked over 17 years and the authors authoritatively declare that this proves that eggs and cholesterol are risk factors for heart disease. There are several problems with this assessment. It is emblematic of the studies that confuse people, yield wildly conflicting conclusions, are used to craft absurd and ineffective dietary g...

KaufmannAbstractThe chemotherapeutic agent cisplatin typically induces apoptosis by inhibiting the cell cycle. Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs), which are a proliferative quiescent and slowly-cycling cell population, are less sensitive and therefore frequently spared from toxic effects. Thus, it remains a priority to increase the sensitivity of CSCs to cisplatin-based chemotherapy, or to specifically target CSCs to improve the therapeutic outcome in breast cancer. Disulfiram (DSF...

tticrew There are concerns about the accuracy of the health information provided by alcohol industry (AI)-funded organisations and about their independence. We conducted a content analysis of the health information disseminated by AI-funded organisations through Twitter, compared with non-AI-funded charities, to assess whether their messages align with industry and/or public health objectives. We compared all tweets from 2016 from Drinkaware (UK); Drinkaware.ie (Ireland); and DrinkWise (Australia), to non-AI-funded charities Alcohol Concern (UK), Alcohol Action Ireland, and FARE (Australia). Industry-funded bodies were...

Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs), which are a proliferative quiescent and slowly-cycling cell population, are less sensitive and therefore frequently spared from toxic effects. Thus, it remains a priority to increase the sensitivity of CSCs to cisplatin-based chemotherapy, or to specifically target CSCs to improve the therapeutic outcome in breast cancer. Disulfiram (DSF) is a drug used clinically for alcoholism treatment that has displayed promising anti-cancer activity in vitro and in cancer xenografts in breast cance...

CONCLUSION: Prophylactic use of steroid-containing oral rinses can prevent/ameliorate mIAS in patients with MBC treated with AIE. MMW + hydrocortisone is an affordable option, as is dexamethasone oral rinse. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: This prospective phase-II study showed that two steroid-containing mouthrinses substantially reduced incidences of all-grade and grade ≥2 stomatitis and related oral adverse events (AEs), and the number of everolimus dose-delays and/or dose-reduction in metastatic breast cancer (MBC) patients receiving everolimus treatment plus an aromatase inhibitor. Both oral ri...

Conclusion: This study suggests that variants of GSTM1 and GSTT1 may not be risk factors for breast cancer development among Filipinos. However, the risk may be increased when these genotypes were combined with lifestyle or environmental factors. PMID: 30803216 [PubMed - in process]
