Short overnight fasting linked to increased risk of breast cancer recurrence
In patients with breast cancer, a short overnight fast of less than 13 hours was associated with a statistically significant, 36 percent higher risk of breast cancer recurrence and a non-significant, 21 percent higher probability of death from the disease compared to patients who fasted 13 or more hours per night, report University of California, San Diego School of Medicine researchers.

Better cancer care for Indigenous Canadians with arts and dialogue in a new proposal
While the number of Indigenous Canadians diagnosed with cancer is growing, little is done to study and address their unique needs in a timely manner. Dr. Chad Hammond suggests an innovative research design, based on arts-based, participatory dialogue with stakeholders involved in cancer care for First Nation, Inuit, and Métis peoples. His grant proposal, submitted to the Canadian Institutes of Health Research postdoctoral fellowship competition, is published in the open-access journal Research Ideas and Outcomes.

Living off the fat of the land
For more than 80 years scientists have thought that cancer cells fuel their explosive growth by soaking up glucose from the blood, using its energy and atoms to crank out duplicate sets of cellular components. But is this really true? Work in a metabolomics laboratory at Washington University in St. Louis suggests not.

'Cancer gene' twice as likely to be defective in children with autism
A large study by researchers with the UC Davis MIND Institute has found that a gene whose role is to suppress cellular damage from environmental stressors is nearly twice as likely to be defective in children with autism spectrum disorder, and that the deficit is also present in their fathers.

Ibuprofen doesn't increase bleeding risk after plastic surgery
Patients are often instructed not to take ibuprofen and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs before or after surgery because of increased bleeding risk. But available evidence suggests that ibuprofen does not increase the risk of bleeding after plastic surgery procedures, according to a research review in the April issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

A drug currently being trialled in cancer patients could also be used to treat an often incurable condition that can cause painful blood vessel overgrowths inside the skin, finds new research in mice led by UCL, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York and the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute in Barcelona. The findings are published in two independent but complementary papers in Science Translational Medicine, led by UCL and MSK respectively.

Statement published on pairing smoking cessation with lung cancer screening
Smokers who are screened for lung cancer should be encouraged to quit smoking during their visit, according to a paper co-written by Benjamin A. Toll, Ph.D., of the Medical University of South Carolina. Citing the recent USPTF recommendation that heavy smokers undergo a yearly screening for lung cancer, the authors note USPTF does not provide specifics for how smoking-cessation treatment should be offered in conjunction with screenings. The article, published in Cancer, addresses specific recommendations.
