Birth control pills raise breast cancer risk, research shows

Targeted Treatment Could Prevent Spread of Pancreatic Cancer, Heart Damage

Researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine have shown that a new targeted treatment could benefit patients with certain pancreatic tumors by preventing spread of the cancer and protecting their heart from damage—a direct result of the tumor.
