NSAID drug protects against intestinal tumors in mice, despite poor diet and gene losses
...drug they tested, sulindac, was a highly effective chemoprevention
agent, the researchers say, because it worked to induce expression of the p21 gene, which they found put a firm stop on tumor formation even though the mice were missing two key tumor suppressor genes (p27 and APC) and were fed a diet high in fat and...
