Breast Cancer Risk May Be Reduced with Bisphosphonates

Posted By on December 16th, 2011 at 9:00 am | 3 comments.

Bisphosphonates are a class of drugs now used to prevent the loss of bone mass in women with osteoporosis. Previous studies have shown that this class of drugs also appears to prevent cancer metastasis to the bones when a woman has breast cancer. A very recent study, published in the International Journal of Cancer, indicates that these drugs may also lower the risk for developing primary breast cancer.

In the IJC study, the records of almost 42,000 women in the United Kingdom were examined and when those who had been taking oral bisphosphonates to those who had not, researchers found a reduction in the former group in both breast and colorectal cancers. An abstract for the article can be found here.

  3. Hello! I know this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work? I’m completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
