Study Finds Link Between Statins And Improved Survival In Inflammatory Breast Cancer

Researchers from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center found statins, the commonly used drug to lowercholesterol, improved progression-free survival in patients with inflammatory breast cancer (IBC). 

The retrospective study was presented in a poster discussion at the 2012 CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium and follows a previously reported Danish study indicating there is some evidence to suggest the anti-inflammatory properties of statins could reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence. Still, the overall effects of statins have not been examined in relation to IBC.
