WEDNESDAY, June 27, 2018 -- Men with localized high-risk prostate cancer can slow its spread by using a cancer drug that's already on the market, a new clinical trial shows.
The targeted drug enzalutamide (Xtandi) reduced by 71 percent these men's risk of either dying from their prostate cancer or having the cancer spread to other organs, compared against a placebo. The drug also delayed their prostate cancer's reappearance by nearly two years, the researchers said.
TUESDAY, June 5, 2018 -- If you're a man and you suffer from heart disease or diabetes, stress at work may shorten your life, a new study finds.
The researchers said a demanding job in which you have little or no control over your work environment is a formula that can increase the risk of dying early whether you suffer from heart disease or not. But that risk jumps 68 percent for men with heart disease or diabetes, the investigators found.
