In a study, British scientists found that despite the smaller side effects of aspirin, taking the drug has an overall positive effect on survival for people with cancer.
The team reviewed past research on aspirin and say that it can reduce cancer-related inflammation, abnormal clotting, abnormal blood vessel growth, and enhance cellular repair processes.
Additionally, they found an association between aspirin and reductions in cancer-related deaths, the spread, and the vascular complications of cancer.
Even though aspirin increases the number of bleeds, the severity is low.
This suggests that the drug could be used to benefit a wide range of cancers.
The study suggests an “overall positive effect” on survival and reductions in cancer spread. This outweighs “the smaller associated side-effects” like aspirin-related bleeds.
Research is needed to understand the scale and variability of any effect but should be conducted with a high degree of confidence that aspirin is a relatively safe drug.
There is extensive evidence suggesting the benefit of aspirin in preventing cancer growth and metastatic spread.
Evidence on biological mechanisms includes reductions by aspirin in cancer-related inflammation, abnormal clotting, abnormal blood vessel growth, and enhancement in cellular repair processes.
Evidence from previous studies showed an association between aspirin and reductions in cancer-related deaths, the spread, and the vascular complications of cancer.
Although aspirin increases the number of bleeds, the severity of bleeds attributable to aspirin is low.
Aspirin appears to benefit a wide range of cancers, suggesting an overall positive effect that outweighs the much more minor associated side effects.
