Exercise improves anxiety and mood in older adults undergoing chemotherapy

Although we know that exercise improves anxiety and mood problems in younger people with cancer, few studies have looked at the effects of exercise on older adults with cancer

Exercise improves anxiety and mood in older adults undergoing chemotherapySince most new cancer cases occur in adults aged 60 or older, a team of researchers from the University of Rochester Medical Center and other institutions designed a study to learn more. Their study appeared in the June issue of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society (JAGS). Having cancer increases the chances of people […]

Breakthrough: Researchers discover 27 genes that could halt cancer

Human cells normally contain two copies of tumour suppressor genes, which work to prevent tumour formation by slowing down cell division and growth. When these genes are deleted, through genetic mutations, for example - this gives rise to cancer development

Breakthrough: Researchers discover 27 genes that could halt cancerThe discovery of these genes could open the door to much-needed personalised treatments for cancer, say the researchers. First study author Jonas Demeulemeester, of the Francis Crick Institute in the United Kingdom, and colleagues recently reported their findings in the journal Nature Communications. Cancer arises when cells grow and divide uncontrollably, forming tumours. Human cells […]
