Single Exercise Session Reduces Cancer Cells' Ability to Form Tumors

07:01 EDT 8 Sep 2017 | Genetic Engineering News

There is substantial epidemiological evidence to suggest that exercise can protect against breast cancer risk, and also help to reduce the likelihood that breast cancer will recur in treated patients. These observed benefits have led to the development of cancer-specific exercise guidelines that women who are diagnosed with breast cancer receive to encourage them to remain physically active.  Scientists don’t yet understand how exercise helps to reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence, and there has been limited prior research on the mechanisms that might underpin these beneficial effects. Researchers in Denmark have now identified a factor that is elevated in the blood of breast cancer patients after just one session of exercise, which not only stops breast cancer cells from growing in vitro , but can prevent the cells from developing into tumors in experimental mice. The researchers, led by Pernille Hojman Ph.D., at the University ...
