"It's exciting to think that something that's already in the medicine cabinet may really have an important effect beyond relieving pain and helping to prevent heart attacks", Massachusetts General Hospital's Dr. Andrew Chan said after a new research.
He and colleagues from the Harvard Medical School had conducted a study, which has revealed that aspirin can prove a promising drug for colon cancer, as per the findings. One amongst the oldest as well as cheapest drugs showing effective results is a big hope for patients.
It has been told that almost after five years of diagnosis of the disease, the ones on Aspirin were alive. However, only 74% of the people who were not taking the drug were alive. The only condition the drug requires is that patients must have the mutations in their genes. Since, the team has found that people without mutations were not realizing any benefit from Aspirin.
Though, further research is still required for the reason that such a study cannot confirm anything. Some people took it for some reason, while the others for other. But, there is still a hope that one-sixth of colon cancer patients with mutations may largely get helped with Aspirin-like affordable drug.
