(Irish Times) – A simple aspirin pill can help reduce death rates from cancer by preventing the spread of the disease, new Irish research suggests.

Women who have been prescribed aspirin regularly before being diagnosed with breast cancer are less likely to have cancer that spreads to the lymph nodes than women who were not on prescription aspirin, according to the research funded by the Irish Cancer Society and the Health Research Board.

These women are also less likely to die from their breast cancer, the study of almost 3,000 Irish patients found.

The research, published by the American Association for Cancer Research in the journal, Cancer Research, analyses records from the National Cancer Registry Ireland (NCRI), and prescription data from the General Medical Service (GMS) pharmacy claims database.
