Expecting the worst increases side-effects in breast cancer patients on hormone therapies
A study of women receiving hormone therapies such as tamoxifen as part of their treatment for breast cancer has found that the number and seriousness of side effects they experienced were influenced by their expectations. The study, published in Annals of Oncology, found that women who had higher expectations of suffering more and worse side-effects before their treatment began did, in fact, experience more after two years of adjuvant hormone therapy. (2016-08-22)

Study paves way for steroid treatments with fewer side effects
An improved therapy to replace essential steroids in the body is a step closer thanks to University of Edinburgh research. The treatment could help people unable to produce a class of steroids called corticosteroids, which are involved in physiological processes including regulating metabolism and blood pressure, and helping the body to cope with physical stress. The therapy for people with adrenal gland disorders is expected to have fewer side effects than existing treatments. (2016-08-17)

Designer agent blocks pain in mice without morphine's side effects
Scientists have synthesized a molecule with a unique profile of highly specific pain-relieving properties and demonstrated its efficacy in mice. PZM21 was not 'reinforcing' or prone to triggering respiratory impairment and was less constipating than existing analgesics. It had more effect on the brain-mediated emotional/experiential component of pain than on spinal cord reflexive responses. In addition to clinical potential, it holds promise as a 'tool molecule' for exploring the workings of brain pain systems. (2016-08-17)
