If to combine traditional therapy against cancer with aspirin, you can achieve much better results, scientists believe. Aspirin, anti-inflammatory effect, inhibits one of the main active substances of the cancer cell and allows faster chemotherapy to reach its goal, writes The Telegraph.
Cancer cells of the breast, colon, skin constantly synthesize prostaglandin E2 in large quantities. Aspirin inhibits the formation of this substance. The main advantages of the drug is its low cost and effectiveness, experts say. There are other anti-inflammatory drugs with similar activity.
The researchers conducted an experiment with laboratory mice. Entering into therapy aspirin, the researchers inhibited the development of cancer by removing her protection. As a result, the immunotherapy is more effective.
