Can Aspirin Help in the Cure of Prostate Cancer?

According to "HealthDay News" (Oct25), the risk of dying from prostate cancer has been reduced by more than half if one takes a daily aspirin. They comment as I quote "...... One of the world's most ubiquitous and pedestrian drugs -- aspirin -- may cut the risk of dying for men who have prostate cancer that has not yet spread beyond the gland ...." The news comment that these fidings come from 10 years records of more than 5,000 men with prostate cancer, 2,000 of whom were taking aspirin or another blood-thinning drug.
I may well be one of those that had some benefit from these "miracle" tablets, as I have been taking a daily 100mg since my RP in 2000.

You may well be interested in reading the all news published in Reuters.

Wishing the best to all

Re: Can Aspirin Help in the Cure of Prostate Cancer?

In their retrospective analysis, they jump to the conclusion that it is aspirin's blood thinning ability that is the cause, but note that it outperformed much stronger blood thinners like Warfarin, so I doubt their hypothesis. I suspect the reason is instead aspirin's effect as a COX-2 inhibitor.

Celecoxib (Celebrex) and ibuprofen have also shown promise in stopping or slowing down PC, although results of randomized controlled studies have so far been equivocal.
