Washington: Researchers have found that estrogen protects women from the gastric inflammation that can lead to cancer. They are working on treatment that mimics estrogen`s cancer-suppressing effects.Several types of cancer, including the gut, liver and colon, are far more common in men than in women. Gastric cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, and people infected with H. pylori are much more likely to develop gastric cancer than uninfected people.
It`s unlikely that doctors would treat men with estrogen, but the researchers believe their work could lead to treatments that mimic estrogen`s cancer-suppressing effects. IANS
