Fish oil hope for breast cancer

A combination of the fatty oils found in fish and a commonly used anaesthetic may form the basis of effective new drugs to treat breast cancer.

Researchers from Indiana University mixed compounds from omega-3 fatty acids with the anaesthetic propofol.

Together they appeared to reduce the growth of breast cancer cells, their ability to spread around the body and to form secondary tumours.

The research is published in the journal Breast Cancer Research.
