Regular use of aspirin may prevent the progression of breast cancer, according to results of a study done by researchers in Kansas City. The study found that aspirin significantly reduced the growth of tumors in mice. It also slowed the growth of breast cancer cell lines in vitro. Gargi Maity (Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Kansas City, MO) presented the results on 21 April 2013 at the annual meeting of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, held in conjunction with the Experimental Biology 2013 conference (Boston, MA).
