Two new studies published this week have found that taking aspirin every day may significantly reduce the risk of many cancers and prevent tumors from spreading.

Researchers from the University of Oxford found that after three years of daily aspirin use, the risk of developing cancer...

People who take aspirin or other drugs that prevent blood clotting appear more likely to have tiny areas of bleeding in the brain, Dutch researchers said. Dr. Meike W.

Participants, who were an average age 69.6, underwent...

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Studies have suggested that aspirin is less effective for preventing heart attack in women than in men, although women do benefit from a similar reduction in risk of stroke due to a blocked artery. However, a new study shows that the apparent lower efficacy in women is not due to a failure of aspirin to reduce platelet clumping or aggregation, as has been proposed. "Women are clearly benefiting from taking aspirin and should continue to take it to improve their...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Fewer than one-third of non-hospitalized U.S. patients at high risk of cardiovascular disease take a daily, low-dose aspirin that could protect their hearts, researchers reported on Monday. For years experts have recommended an aspirin-a-day for people who have had a heart attack or stroke and others with an elevated risk of heart disease. Aspirin can cut the risk of those problems by reducing blood clots at a cost of only pennies per day. "Aspirin use is much...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Taking aspirin before heart bypass surgery may help patients recover and survive better, researchers said on Monday.
