I typed this out once and it disappeared when I tried to add a tag, and so here goes again.
The links below are a Lancet article summary, from 17 July (2nd link), and an article on 23 July by a science journalist about the article (1st link).
The articles are self-explanatory. This was a very large American study over 40 years or so. Those who took aspirin or an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug eg ibuprofen) after initial diagnosis and standard treatment had a better chance of survival.
I heard about these articles from 2 friends who know about me, or else I would not have seen them, as I am not aware of anything in the press, and Cancer Research UK have made no mention of the original article in the Lancet in their regular newsletter which I get. And I can find nothing on their website!
I think this article is very important, and should have been better publicized so that patients with ovarian cancer would know about it. It is very disappointing. However fortunately I can bring it to your attention. It is possible that someone has posted about this article already, as I don't go on this website all that regularly, and so maybe I missed it. If so, my apologies.
Would be glad to hear your comments. Or if something has been posted already, can you please direct me to the post.
Best wishes to all.
