Study Suggests Hydroxychloroquine May Reverse Drug Resistance To Tamoxifen.
On its website, TIME (6/14, Sifferlin) reported that research published in Clinical Cancer Research suggests that “an inexpensive malaria could be the answer for some women who are not responding to their cancer treatment.” The study, which involved mice, indicated that “the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) can actually reverse drug resistance to...tamoxifen.”

Minorities Face Disproportionately Larger Barriers To Healthcare.
The Boston Globe (6/22, Crimaldi) reports on “barriers to health care” in Massachusetts and the US, noting a report from May by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. That report found that slightly more than a quarter of Americans, 26 percent, “report having difficulty getting health care,” especially among minority groups and lower-income segments. Additionally, Dr. Karen Winkfield at Massachusetts General, who provides most of the information for the story, points out that encouraging more people from racial minorities to participate in clinical trials “is important because black men have the highest rates of prostate cancer and get the disease earlier in life.”
When Dr. Karen Winkfield leaves Massachusetts General Hospital to discuss health issues with the public at Boston-area churches and clinics, she refers to her message as the “triple A:” awareness, advocacy, and ambassadorship.

Sometimes the slide shows leukemia, and you don’t deserve it, and you can’t change it. You might be able to make it mean something.

The risk of developing cancer increases with age. Factors like smoking and regular aspirin use also affect the risk of cancer - although in the opposite sense.
