redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Women's immune systems age more slowly than men's, which may contribute to their longer average lifespans, according to new research published Wednesday in the journal Immunity & Ageing. The study by Japanese researchers found that levels of key white blood cells responsible for fighting off infections decline faster in ageing men than they do in women. The average life expectancy in the US is 76.0 years for men and 80.9...

Changes in estrogen breakdown, or metabolism, may be one of the mechanisms by which aerobic exercise lowers a woman's breast cancer risk, according to data published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research. "Observational studies suggest physical activity lowers breast cancer risk, but there are no clinical studies that explain the mechanism behind this," said Mindy S. Kurzer, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Food...

Spread of breast cancer linked to kisspeptins which normally inhibit metastasis KISS 1 is a metastasis-suppressor gene which helps to prevent the spread of cancers, including melanoma, pancreatic and ovarian cancers to name a few. But new research from Western University's Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry shows that kisspeptins —peptide products of KISS1, actually make some breast cancers worse, with a higher tumor grade and metastatic potential. The research is published...

A team of international cancer researchers led by Dr. Mathieu Lupien at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, University Health Network, has identified the signalling pathway that is over-activated in estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer cells that are resistant to hormone therapies such as tamoxifen, aromatase inhibitors or fulvestrant. Resistance to hormone therapy is reported in almost half of ER-positive breast cancer patients and no cure is currently available. The fact that...
