Artificial Sweetener may Help Treat Aggressive Cancer with Less Side Effects

According to study published in ACS Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, artificial sweeteners are used in diet drinks and foods but also could someday be used as treatments targeting carbonic anhydrase IX (CA IX), a protein associated with aggressive cancers. Although several drugs have been approved that target similar forms of CA, they aren't selective and may cause side effects, including vomiting and fatigue.

Association Between The Serum EPA: AA Ratio And Cancer Risk

According to this study, Hisayama Study is an ongoing, population-based epidemiologic study in the town of Hisayama, which is in a suburb of the Fukuoka metropolitan area on Kyushu Island, Japan. Whether the intake of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) or arachidonic acid (AA) affects the risk of cancer remains unclear, and the association between the serum EPA:AA ratio and cancer risk has not been fully evaluated in general populations.

Alternative Treatment for Anemia

In a new discovery, the research team has revealed an unknown clockwork mechanism within the body that controls the creation of oxygen-carrying red blood cells. The finding sheds light on iron-restricted anaemias that leave millions of people weak, tired and unable to concentrate – and it may point the way to better treatments as well.
