Statins May Cut Risk of Death From Cancer, Study Suggests
Date:11/8/2012

in Atlanta, said that although the study results are intriguing and exciting, "they do not mean that people with cancer should start using statins in the hopes of improving their prognosis."

Jacobs explained that "because this study was an observational study [as opposed to a trial], the slightly lower cancer death rates among cancer patients who had used statins before their cancer diagnosis could have been caused by factors other than the statin itself."

Jacobs said more research is needed to ascertain if and how statins might influence survival in cancer patients.
