Cancer Research:Sleep duration, quality may impact cancer survival rate ♦ Safer care,for colorectal surgery ♦ Study redefines role of estrogen in cervical cancer

For safer care, simple steps yield substantial improvements in colorectal surgery Simple steps that include the consistent use of experienced medical teams for a single type of surgery, pre emptive antibiotics before the procedure, less reliance on potent opioids during recovery and urging patients to get out of bed and move around sooner can not only prevent infections, blood clots and other serious complications in people undergoing colorectal operations, but can also accelerate recovery and reduce cost of care.
Study redefines role of estrogen in cervical cancer Scientists have prior evidence that the hormone estrogen is a major driver in the growth of cervical cancer, but a new study examining genetic profiles of 128 clinical cases reached a surprising conclusion: Estrogen receptors all but vanish in cervical cancer tumors.
Researchers develop novel ketone supplements to enhance non-toxic cancer therapy A team of researchers has doubled survival time in an aggressive metastatic cancer model using a novel combination of non-toxic dietary and hyperbaric oxygen therapies.
Sleep duration, quality may impact cancer survival rate Pre-diagnostic short sleep duration and frequent snoring were associated with significantly poorer cancer-specific survival, particularly among women with breast cancer.
