(University of Dundee) Study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests aging immune system plays a larger role in cancer incidence than previously thought. Findings may explain higher likelihood of men developing cancer than women. This epidemiological research could have major implications for global fight against cancer if borne out by further studies.
According to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine, the Abramson Cancer Center and the School or Arts and Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania ...
Using a mathematical model, a group of researchers conclude that a declining immune system could explain our increased cancer risk as we age.
Mutations in the genes that defend the body against cancer-related viruses and other infections may play a larger role in breast cancer than previously thought, according to a study at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
The risk of invasive breast cancer is increased in postmenopausal women with a normal body mass index (BMI) but higher levels of body fat, meaning that a large portion of the population has an unrecognized risk of developing cancer.
