Using Aspirin to Reduce Chances of Colorectal Cancer

Posted on February 18, 2016 by Disability Help Group

According to a report from Medline Plus, certain patients may be able to prevent colorectal cancer by participating in an aspirin regimen. Those who have cancer are often unable to work because the required treatment will make them so tired and ill that they become disabled. At this stage, Social Security benefits may be necessary.

Findings in a new study indicate that taking aspirin is only effective in those who have higher levels of an inflammatory biomarker in their blood. In the past it was found that, in general taking, aspirin could reduce a person’s risk of having this type of cancer. This latest study reveals that this measure may not be effective for all patients.

The inflammatory biomarker blood that was found to increase the chance of developing colorectal cancer is “soluble tumor necrosis factor receptor-2 (sTNFR-2).”

Those patients who had the highest levels of sTNFR-2 had a 60% greater chance of developing colorectal cancer in comparison to those with lower levels.

This may be very helpful in determining which patients would benefit from taking daily aspirin. There are plans to study this even further.
