    Statins and Aspirin May Help to Control Certain Cancers

    A retrospective study of 554 endometrial cancer patients shows a significant 84% reduction in mortality among patients taking statins and aspirin, and a 45% reduction in mortality among those taking statins alone.

    Statins are generally used in cardiovascular disease, though we have previously noted their potential application in certain cancers. You can view a brief discussion of the use of statins in colon cancer in our interview with William Shatner's Moving America Forward (the discussion happens at 8:10 on the video, and the full footage can be seen here). This news exemplifies why we consider thousands of FDA approved drugs to address the problems we find in our patients cancer cells, rather than limiting our search to those therapies currently appreciated as having a role in cancer.
