  • Smokers more likely to think cancer is a death sentence 22 May 2015 | 4:08 pm

    By Madeline Kennedy (Reuters Health) - Smokers have more pessimistic attitudes about cancer and may be more likely to delay getting screened, according to a new survey from the UK. Smokers are less likely to engage in cancer screening programs and are less engaged with health services overall, senior author Jane Wardle told Reuters Health in an email. “We wanted to investigate why, by exploring whether this could be partly due to excessively negative beliefs about cancer,” said Wardle, the director of the Health Behavior Research Center at University College London.

  • Exercise may cut risk of death among elderly men 22 May 2015 | 4:07 pm

Researchers followed about 5,700 men for about five decades, starting in the 1970s when they were 45 years old on average, to see how their exercise habits influenced longevity. Men who got about 30 minutes of exercise six days a week appeared to reduce their risk of death by 40 percent.

  • Amgen ends collaboration with AstraZeneca on inflammation drug 22 May 2015 | 3:59 pm

    A sign is seen at an AstraZeneca site in Macclesfield(Reuters) - Amgen Inc said it will terminate a collaboration with AstraZeneca Plc to develop an inflammation drug after it observed suicidal thoughts in subjects of a trial. AstraZeneca could decide on the development and marketing of the drug for all territories, except for Japan and certain Asian territories, where Kyowa Hakko Kirin has the rights to it, Amgen said. Amgen said such safety concerns would likely result in a restrictive label, potentially limiting the number of patients using the drug.
