Antibody immunity found in ovarian cancer

Immunomodulation is an exciting anti-cancer strategy and includes cellular immunity and antibody immunity (humoral immunity). Research has so far focused on T-cell cellular type of immunity, which has been variably effective against cancers and has been specifically disappointing in ovarian cancer. There are other strategies and the immune system is very complex.  The following is […]

Flaxseed in your diet may prevent ovarian cancer

Flaxseed nutrients have protective and anti-cancer effects in animal models.  While this is yet to be proven in humans, the plausibility is there and there is no downside to adding this to your diet either as a primary preventive or in a proactive recurrence prevention strategy.  Specifically, the following study points out one of the […]

Oxford ovarian cancer classification system: predicting survival outcomes

We are moving towards more personalized molecular marker informed treatment for cancer and this includes ovarian cancer. The genomic molecular information also helps classify ovarian cancer into categories so that the best overall treatment plans can be used, balancing quality of life and curative-intent surgery and treatment. Such is the case for the Oxford ovarian […]

ARID1A molecular driver of some ovarian cancers and glutamine benefits and harm

This is a very important research article that the Gynecologic Oncology Institute investigative team uncovered. The reason, beyond the possibility of new ways to treat certain ovarian cancers, is that chemotherapy is often neurotoxic and many oncologists prescribe very high doses of glutamine for help prevent or treat that side effect.  If you have the […]

Uterine Cancer

Each additional pregnancy reduces endometrial cancer risk

We have known that pregnancy reduces the risk of ovarian cancer for a long time and multiple studies have established that. Part of the protective effect is because ovulation does not occur during pregnancy (nor while taking oral contraceptives)  and this reduces the number of times the ovarian surface is traumatized.  Less trauma leads to […]

It’s a common question from 85% of patients who want to know whether food can reduce side effects or boost their immune systems. Enter Savor Health. The cancer […]

Egypt launches research institute for cancer nutrition therapy

This is actually news from a few years ago but points to international interest in the notion of cancer being primarily preventable with nutrition as well as secondarily preventable in the sense of reducing recurrences.  There are international ethnic differences, so this is important to review in each country and how some factors may change […]
