Diabète et cancer: une association pernicieuse

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2010, vol. 6, no. 252, p. 1193-1194, 1196-1198
Abstract A clear relationship between diabetes and cancer has been demonstrated. An increased incidence of several cancers is observed in diabetic patients, notably pancreatic, hepatic, colo-rectal, breast, urinary tract and endometrial cancer. By contrast a decreased incidence of prostate cancer is observed in diabetes patients implying a protective effect. Multiple potential mechanisms have been proposed but they remain hypothetical.
