Researchers found similar rates of disease-free survival and no difference in overall survival among women who received a laparoscopic or abdominal total hysterectomy for stage I endometrial cancer, according to a study.
A miniature female reproductive tract that fits in the palm of your hand has now been developed by researchers. It could eventually change the future of research and treatment of diseases in women’s reproductive organs.This new 3-D technology — called EVATAR — is made with human tissue and will enable scientists to conduct much-needed testing of new drugs fo […]
Less than a third of men in a large national survey reported talking with their doctor about both the pros and cons of the PSA blood test for prostate cancer, and the likelihood has decreased further since a national panel recommended against the test.
A fluorescent probe lights up the enzyme beta-galactosidase in a cell culture. The glowing probe-enzyme combination could make tumors fluoresce, allowing surgeons to cut away cancer while leaving healthy tissue intact.
In a new study, women who were given vitamin D3 and calcium supplements had 30% lower risk of cancer than women taking placebos. The difference did not quite reach statistical significance. However, in further analyses, blood levels of vitamin D were significantly lower in women who developed cancer during the study than in those who remained healthy.
A protein known as arginine methyltransferase 1 (PRMT1) may be a potential therapeutic target for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), the most common type of pancreatic cancer, and one of the most deadliest with a less than 10 percent, five-year survival rate. PRMT1 is involved in a number of genetic processes including gene transcription, DNA repair an […]
