COX-2 Inhibitors Might Reduce Postpartum Breast Cancers

Pain relieving and anti-inflammatory drug known as COX-2 Inhibitors (such as, Ibuprofren) might mitigate the occurrence or severity of postpartum breast cancers.  Postpartum women are susceptible to aggressive breast cancers. When lactation ceases, in a process known as involution, many complicated structural changes take place within the breasts. Milk producing cells die and are replaced by fat cells.  Additionally, an enzyme, known as cox-2,  known for pain and inflammation responses, is instrumental in creating fresh fibrous collagen pathways to transport healthy cells with the newly non-lactating tissues. However, such pervasive pathways can also serve as transport for cancer cells. Drugs that interfere with the COX-2  response could offer protective measures against cancer. Researchers claim further study is required prior to prescribing this treatment as a preventive measure.
