Glucose Receptor in Ovarian Cancer Links to Metabolism

A new study of non-diabetic women with ovarian cancer reveals a potential correlation and area for further study regarding the expression of the GLUT1 glucose transporter receptor at the cancer tissue level. GLUT1 is a receptor protein involved in the absorption of glucose, or sugar, in the bloodstream and across membranes in the body. Physiologically,

Thermography: Breast Cancer Detection + Better Risk Assessment

Thermography is a key risk assessment in early detection. Early detection of breast cancer is one of the keys to significantly improving survival rates; in fact, it’s estimated that up to 95 percent of breast cancer cases can be overcome when the cancer is detected in its earliest stages. Every year, more than seventy thousand
