Beta Blockers May Prevent Spread of Breast Cancer, Cancer Research UK Cambridge Research Institute Study


10/3/2011 7:18:38 AM

In a study conducted last year, women with breast cancer exposed to beta blocker drugs were apparently less likely to die after many years of treatment. With the same objective, scientists from the Cancer Research UK are gauging if beta-blockers could help in prohibiting breast cancer metastasis and increasing the survival rate. The investigators wished to gauge the efficacy of beta blocker drugs that are usually consumed for high blood pressure and anxiety prior to and during breast cancer treatment. The findings show a biological mechanism through which beta blockers can stop the mobility of cancer cells and thus prevent its spread.
