RSNA: MRI Shows Potential to Improve Breast Cancer Risk Prediction

May 17
Posted by admin Filed in Marine Phytoplankton


OAK BROOK, Ill. (PRWEB) May 11, 2015

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides important information about a woman’s future risk of developing breast cancer, according to a new study published in Radiology. Researchers said the findings support an expanded role for MRI in more personalized approaches to breast cancer screening and prevention.

The new study focused on the relationship between imaging features and cancer risk in women who already face a high risk of breast cancer because of family history, genetic mutations associated with the disease, or other factors. In prior studies, dense breast tissue, or tissue that contains more fibroglandular tissue than fatty tissue, has been linked to an increased likelihood of breast cancer development.

“To date, it’s been difficult to assess the future risk of breast cancer for women, so there is a strong desire in the oncology community to identify ways to better determine this risk,” said study co-author Habib Rahbar, M.D., a breast imaging expert at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and assistant professor at the University of Washington. “While breast density is loosely associated with the risk of developing breast cancer, it is unclear whether it or other imaging features can improve upon current risk assessment methods.”

Contrast-enhanced MRI is one potential tool that is already used as an imaging option to supplement mammography in high-risk women. Current American Cancer Society guidelines recommend that women with a 20 percent or greater lifetime risk of developing breast cancer undergo annual screening breast MRIs in addition to routine annual screening mammography.

In the new study, Dr. Rahbar and colleagues reviewed screening breast MR images from high-risk women 18 years or older with no history of breast cancer who were screened at their institution from January 2006 to December 2011.

The researchers looked for any associations between cancer risk and imaging features, including breast density and background parenchymal enhancement (BPE). BPE is a phenomenon in which areas of normal background breast tissue appear white, or enhanced, on the MR images. The precise reasons for this enhancement are not clear, but previous research has suggested a possible link to cancer risk.

The results showed that women who displayed elevated amounts of BPE on MRI were nine times more likely to have a breast cancer diagnosis during the study follow-up interval than those who exhibited no or minimal BPE. In contrast, mammographic density appeared to have no significant relationship to cancer risk in the study group.

The findings suggest that BPE could potentially help physicians better tailor screening and management strategies to each individual’s breast cancer risk. Currently, women at high risk for breast cancer have various options, including supplementing screening mammography with MRI, prevention therapy with tamoxifen—a drug that blocks estrogen activity in the breast—and preventive mastectomies. If validated in larger studies, BPE could provide more information to help guide these important decisions.

“MRI could be used in a broader group of women to determine who most needs supplemental screening based on their BPE levels,” Dr. Rahbar said. “This is important as we move into an era of more personalized medicine.”

The researchers are working to validate the findings in a larger group of patients and are planning additional research to understand more about why BPE may serve as a biomarker of breast cancer risk. One theory is that BPE is related to areas of inflammation associated with early stages of the disease.

“Breast cancer needs a supportive environment to grow, and recent research suggests that areas of inflammation are particularly conducive for such growth,” Dr. Rahbar said.

###

“Are Qualitative Assessments of Background Parenchymal Enhancement, Amount of Fibroglandular Tissue on MR Images, and Mammographic Density Associated with Breast Cancer Risk?” The study was led by Dr. Rahbar and Brian N. Dontchos, M.D., a recent Roger E. Moe Fellow in Multidisciplinary Breast Cancer Care at the University of Washington School of Medicine, and was funded by grants from the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and the National Institutes of Health (R01CA151326).

Collaborating with Drs. Rahbar and Dontchos were Savannah C. Partridge, Ph.D., Larissa A. Korde, M.D, Ph.D., Diana L. Lam, M.D., John R. Scheel, M.D., Ph.D., Sue Peacock, M.Sc., and Constance D. Lehman, M.D., Ph.D.

Men’s Only… Multivitamins

Men’s Only… Multivitamins

Protect Your Health & Youth – For Life!

Along with a balanced diet and regular exercise, multivitamins are a good way to stay in good health. Complete multivitamins are usually safe for
everyone, you do not have to worry about getting too much of a certain supplement as they give you only what your body needs for the day. When taken as directed, they are not expected to cause serious side effects. Medical community concedes that multivitamins are important for health, but only after decades of denying benefit from vitamins.

No matter how important it is to take multivitamins and how high the quality of a product is, it is useless if you cannot take it. Most people take daily multivitamins for general well being and to improve overall health. Liquid multivitamins are much easier to swallow for children and seniors. Good, high quality liquid (this form is easier to swallow and has a higher rate of absorption) multivitamins are available at low cost and are advised for all children. Never take more than the recommended dose of multivitamins with iron.

Multivitamins are the most commonly used product in the dietary supplement category. About half of American consumers now use supplements, according
to recent surveys. If you have an excellent diet, you may be able to get these essential nutrients without a supplement, but this is often difficult. Supplements and homeopathic remedies have become more affordable to consumers in recent years as an expanding middle class has led to rising income levels. Now, consumers can use new food and supplement pyramids to improve eating habits and build a sensible long-term supplement program.

There are a number of natural nutritional supplements that are beneficial in treating or preventing diseases but these natural nutritional supplements are rarely recommended by doctors since most doctors are not familiar with their potential. To get the recommended amount of this B vitamin from food alone, you’d have to eat about 8 servings of fruit or 4 to 6 cups of vegetables every day. Even the people who eat healthy food fail to get the recommended daily amount of vitamins and minerals.

No matter how good your diet is, multivitamins are a smart move. Multivitamins are the most convenient way to get vitamins to your body that would otherwise be left out. Multivitamins are also recommended for people with nutrient-depleting diseases of the gastrointestinal system, diabetes or cancer. It is the long-term use of multivitamins that is most beneficial, so consumers should resolve in the year 2000 to make this a lifelong habit.

A man’s unique health concerns demand a unique multivitamin formulation. If you are never going to become pregnant or go through menopause, why would
you take the same vitamins women do? Men’s Only… Multivitamins contains no iron, plus it has the recommended Daily Value (DV) of selenium and vitamin E, both of which may help prevent prostate problems. Most multivitamins are formulated to include 100% of the Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs) of many vitamins and nutrients. For maximum protection, eat well and take the supplements recommended on my web pages.

Is There Such a Thing as an Immune System Supplement, And How can It Be Of Benefit To Your Fitness Goals?

Apr 16
Posted by admin Filed in Marine Phytoplankton

Is There Such a Thing as an Immune System Supplement, And How can It Be Of Benefit To Your Fitness Goals?

Many people wonder about the existence of an immune system supplement. Is there really such a supplement? Well, if you go to your health food store and start searching for an immune system supplement, you may be hard pressed to find one. Instead, you need to look towards research, and discover which products or substances have been proven to boost the immune system, which, in effect, could be considered as an immune system supplement.

A great deal of research has been conducted on the various supplements that are used in bodybuilding. Some of that research has yet to be conclusive, while other portions of that research have already given us conclusive proof regarding different factors of how supplements affect the human body, and bodybuilding in particular.

You would be amazed at the number of people who don’t realize that the immune system plays a vital role in the process of bodybuilding. While light exercise actually strengthens the immune system, the harsh exercise that bodybuilders do can actually weaken it. Bodybuilders put a great deal of stress on their bodies, and in response, this stress weakens the immune system. So, naturally, as a bodybuilder, it is important to consider an immune system supplement to prevent this from happening.

In this research we have also learned that whey is important to bodybuilding, for numerous reasons. One of those reasons is that whey protein isolate has been proven to have a positive effect on the immune system. In fact, when choosing between a whey protein isolate and a soy protein isolate, they whey often wins because of its increased positive effect on the immune system.

This research was conducted on two groups, consisting of 30 people, with 15 in each group. One group was given 30 grams of whey protein isolate twice each day, and the other was given 30 grams of soy protein isolate twice a day. The test continued for twelve weeks.

What was learned in this study is that the group that was given the whey protein supplement had increased levels of glutathione stores. This is an indication that the immune system is strong, or stronger. On the other hand the group who had the soy protein isolate had lower levels of glutathione stores, indicating that their immune systems were actually weakened, or weaker. The study also concluded that the soy protein isolate group had a decrease in the T4 thyroid hormone. At the same time, however, the amount of body fat, cholesterol, and triglycerides remained about the same between the two groups.

What this tells us is that in some areas of our health and body function, there is no difference between using whey protein isolate and soy protein isolate, but when it comes to the immune system, and immune system supplements, whey protein isolate is definitely the way to go. So, instead of looking for an immune system supplement in your health food store, look for a good whey protein isolate.
